Understanding social media for SME’s…

Incontrovertible truths about social media that you should know about…

There is some basics about social media which are undeniable.

 

Facebook is more or less all about friends connecting with friends. Twitter is about distributing snippets of your opinions or musings with others. LinkedIn is about linking with similar minded or professionally qualified people and expanding your career network. What is singular about all of those? None of them are created around companies. The essential Raison d’etre of all of these social media platforms is they are about people connecting with people, not businesses.

 

Its hardly surprising then, to find that thousands of SME’s in the UK have no real social media integration or strategy. Many have tried, and  failed miserably, to leverage any upside to their bottom line using social media.

 

For a small or medium sized business to genuinely succeed using social media takes serious investment in terms of time, creativity, dedication and persistence. Unfortunately, for many SME’s, that formula is just too strident to achieve, and they give up.
