Are you still hesitating about opening social media accounts for your company? Nowadays, it is practically a given if you want to ensure your brand’s presence on the Internet. These networks, which are available to anyone, are used to share news, information, ads, contests and any other way to attract potential clients and increase your visibility.
They can also help you with your customer service, making you more readily available and easier to join. The person that takes care of your social media accounts will receive questions and comments from people visiting your accounts and will be able to answer them quickly, without a middleman.

A community manager can be very useful, even essential, if your social media accounts are very busy and require for someone to take care of them several hours per week.
If you only have 300 likes on Facebook, it is not necessarily recommended to seek this type of service.

What type of strategy should you use on social networks?
Once again, this question cannot find a precise answer without having determined what is the goal you are looking to reach and who is a part of your target audience.
You will have to determine which days are better for sharing your posts, what type of content obtains more responses from the people that are following you, how much you will need to spend to make the publications more visible and several other aspects that will affect the impact that social networks will have on your company.
