Building Relationship with the users:
Creating a Twitter or Facebook fan page doesn't mean that your brand is promoted. Consider this as you are entering into a party room and to make contact you need to socialize with others or as we say engage with the user. Make sure that whatever you are sharing is interesting and worth sharing, so it can build interest of the users and project your brand image as an innovative andoutstanding idea that encourages users to interact and engage themselves with the brand.
Update your content regularly:
This is very important for any brand and product that there content is always updated and is related to the market trends. Because users are mostly not interested in the past details, they always look for the latest and new offerings. So keep in mind if you are posting or sharing anything besensible and intelligent.
More Viral Promotion:
Always keep in mind that whenever you are offering something new to your fans make it viral to increase its value. Some of the social networking sites like "Groupon"is following this strategy. Viral promotions can enrich user's voice in social media.
Social media will give you visibility and enhance your target market. It will provide you a chance to present your qualities to the wider audience.When users subscribe to your page or "like" your brand, they can see all the updates and activities. If things are interesting the users will repost or share your activity with his/her friends and try to be part of the activity.
Another important part of developing a better social media strategy is to keep in touch with your fans or customers by responding them as quickly as possible, so they feel themselves worthy and valuable. It becomes very easy for brands to engage users and build their brand loyalty among the people by responding early.
At the end, there are so many things that you can do to increase your audience. Using social media platforms gives you an edge over your competitors (especially from those who are not using social media). Remember, you presence on social media platform is not the only key for the success of online marketing, it's the interaction with users that counts.
