Define the objectives for your business with social media. Next, determine how social media will enable you to reach your objectives. After implementing your strategy, commence with choosing the best measurements and metrics that will give you the feedback you need. Since social media is very much about the value of relationships, you need to use those metrics that will best serve that purpose.

Social Tip #4 Address Customer Concerns

People search online for reviews; it’s an entire industry unto itself – the review-based website. What are a part of reviews? Well, a comparison with similar products is a good example. Let’s not forget about money. There are always concerns and questions about cost. FAQs are valuable pages for any site because people have tons of questions.

These are the universal customer concerns you can put out there on social media. Be willing to provide this information to potential customers and you will be rewarded with new business.
