Here is what the twitter stats are telling you as a business owner:

Adding up the numbers on average, the top reasons for a twitter follower to follow your brand is to either receive updates or deals.

* The reason why a twitter user follows your brand is to receive discounts, get updates about upcoming sales, get samples, coupon vouchers etc. So “what is in it for me” is a big factor

* The reason a twitter follower follows you is because they want to stay informed and receive updates about the company.

Please note that the research above only covers American twitter users and not Australian twitter followers. But basically the demographic and user behavior for American users and Australian users wont be that much different in assumption.

Do you have a Facebook fan page?

Facebook is not what it was a couple of years ago. It is not where teenagers go and chat to their friends now. Google indexes Facebook Fan pages. Companies have millions of fans on their fan pages. When a Facebook user searches for a product/service that you sell, does your Fan page come up in the list?

The facebook Social Media Advantage for Businesses

April 28th, 2010 No comments

Social Media Australia

Facebook has traditionally been viewed as a personal social networking tool by many businesses. The perception for some companies is that it exposes public lives and public information to your business contacts. Obviously no one wants that.

Facebook over time has evolved into a very good business platform. It is a bit of work and hard to leverage some features of facebook from a business perspective but some features are done in 5 minutes and businesses can leverage those advantages almost immediately.

The first thing to understand is that TODAY and NOW, facebook is not just a personal social media tool. It is a thriving business community and you can generate leads, inform prospects and customers, build better relationships and expose your brand to a massive community without having to put pictures of you drunk at the last christmas party 🙂

Over the next few weeks we will look at scenarios where you can leverage these functionalities for your business. The first one in the series is using facebook events to lift attendance to your online/offline events.
