When it comes to succeeding in business, all modern business owners should be aware of the power and potential benefits that come from professional social media management. Having a ‘presence’ online has never been more important than it is now. With the enormous uptake in social media and the prevalence of social networking, being online is about so much more than just having a website. Hello Local Media want to help Sydney small business owners to succeed in an online space, and that comes from having proper social media management.

What is social media management?

Social media management involves the running of all your business and brand social media and networking channels. That means Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Google+, LinkedIn and Snapchat. Many companies choose to outsource their social media management to the professionals, like Hello Local Media, instead of wasting precious time that could be spent furthering their business.

Why you need social media management?

Essentially, all businesses need social media management. Businesses have a chance through social media to interact, listen, engage and speak honestly to customers about what they want, and how services or products could be improved to match their needs. If you aren’t using social media, you’re missing out on an opportunity to get to know your customer better, and ultimately make your business more profitable. Customers are looking online for information, advice and to provide feedback about the brands they love. The brands and businesses that are succeeded are the ones that have a unique online voice and a memorable presence on these social networking platforms that make their customers even more loyal and likely to choose them in the future.

Business owners know just how powerful word of mouth can be. You can think of social media like traditional word of mouth on an entirely new, and much bigger, playing field. With social media, you’re able to tap into online conversations about your brand, and use that to build credibility, analyse your competitors, and work towards improvements.

With all of these benefits, it’s pretty obvious that social media management is incredibly important. Poorly managed social media networks, or ignored ones, drive customers away from your brand, and that’s exactly what you don’t want.
