5 what is social media? Social media refers to the means of interactions among people in which they create, share, and exchange information and ideas in virtual communities and networks.

6 why should you use social media? Social is too big to be ignored “We believe social media is about changing our business culture, the ways we work and the ways we engage with our colleagues and customers. It is about creating businesses that have social in their DNA”. “It is about realising that everything, including our marketing, now happens in an environment where customers can, and will, talk about what we do and can share it with the world.” “With or without you, your customers will discuss their experiences online – don’t leave their comments up to chance. Give them a place where they can praise or abuse you, where you can engage and manage the conversation.”

7 Social has disrupted the traditional sales funnel On the old model, companies were solely focused on achieving a sale and that’s where customer interaction used to end… retention and advocacy were by-products rather than the aim. Social is not a direct response medium so don’t be disheartened if it doesn’t happen overnight. It’s now about going the extra mile, and caring about the people you do business with. why should you use social media?
