It Is All About Commitment - Social Media

For small business owners the Social Media landscape could be slightly overwhelming and daunting. With other tasks at hand you may require a special person dedicated to your Social Media requirements. Social Media is all about consistency and being constant. You cannot decide to Post whenever you feel like - you need to have Content all the time. It is all about Commitment.
In order to help you in working towards your brand exposure on Social Media am sharing a couple of pointers for you to start working towards:

  • People do business with people. Hence what you need to make sure is that there is human touch to your entire online activities. Social Media is not and should not be a constraining factor to any business. The logic is very simple here on how to determine if your business should take the Social Media path. First and foremost check on who is your target audience. Your target audience decides if you should be on Social Media or not: If your customers are online then you 'may need to consider Social Media'. However this plain understanding is not enough to decide that you should be on Social Media space. 
  • Have a blog. Blogging is just not for personal usage. It is useful in business as well. Plan what is it that you will blog. Have a planed schedule as well of the topics that you will be blog about. Business blogging is a complex topic, and there will never be one magic formula that applies to all companies.
  • Let your followers feel special. Allow them a peek preview at various things happening at your organization / brand. 
  • Share and be transparent. This is very essential in Social Media. Do not be anonymous, make it a point to reach out to your people online.
  • Have fresh content. Have  a schedule wherein you have  marked out well before hand on the content and be consistent at posting. While working on Social Media it is important to maintain integrity and ethics. Blatant copy pasting someone else's hard work is just not correct. It could mar your professional credibility. You could loose out on potential clients and start to give out an image of yourself as not being genuine. Content curation is about appreciating and synthesizing work of others. Allow me to repeat myself: it is not about copy pasting someone's hard work;  It is reviewing and filtering it is all about synthesizing. Content is the an additional main criteria. Know and understand what is relevant to your target audience. Mark out your topics well in advance on what you would want to discuss on the Social Media sites and blogs etc. Decide on what you want to be perceived as. 
  • Decide on keywords. It is essential for your to know your target audience and decide on the keywords that you are to maintain throughout your interactions online. Use on-page SEO [Search Engine Optimization].
  • Have an escalation matrix to handle complain. Also have a plan of action for negative and rude language that people might use online with regards to your brand / business. When the comments are directly towards you at a personal level you may tend to re-act a little more strongly. When it is towards your business or brand then you at first step try to plan but yet could have a strong urge to re-act. Have a plan for spam that you will have to face.
  • Interact and respond to people on your blog / Social Media sites. If you do promise to revert then make it a point to get back with appropriate information. 
  • Reward people. Your active and loyal members will enable your messages to spread. They will help you to see the correct perspective during discussion as well. They are precious, preserve them. 
  • Encourage members helping each other. When members interact they get more involved. Allow them to interact. Encourage this. 
  • Listen and monitor. This is extremely critical. Have tools and and have access to software that enable you to know who has written what about your business and brand. 
  • Connect and bond with persons of your industry. This is essential. Share knowledge. Our knowledge does not decrease if we share. 
  • Understand and know the various Social Media sites. To know their functionality and work within this is essential. For instance Twitter requires 140 characters however if you want that your matter gets re-Tweeted then you need to have 120 characters to be on safe side. 
  • Note that it is not the amount of followers it is the quality that matters. Remember that we have human beings connecting to us, so we need to approach our contacts on a humane level. Avoid copy pasting similar messages. 
  • Have tools to measure and track your activities. It is important to measure the ROI [Return On Investment]
  • Keep in mind that Social Media is a good investment though it starts to reward you over a period of time. It is not a quick conversion getter. Establish yourself and your brand on the relevant Social Media sites.
Social Media is a consistent and constant efforts. Let us 'never' think that once the basics are set up it will all generate talks on its own. People always need a little push and a little nudging. Social Media no doubt catches momentum, but one has to keep the momentum going. We cannot say that without an 'active driver' the Social Media will continue to create and achieve our objectives.

Your turn: share your pointers as well to enhance small business endeavor on Social Media.

Are You Making Space For Spammers? - Social Media

A Facebook Page which is not administered regularly becomes a free space for spammers 

10 Tips To Gain More Followers On Twitter! - Social Media

Gaining Followers has become a Trend. Many People see the Number of Followers as a benchmark of Popularity and 'Good Branding'.

However there is no use of having a million Followers when your ROI is not going anywhere. Infact if you do have lots of Followers do a quick check and see if they are Genuine Humans or Fake Accounts and Bots.

Social Media is about Relationship, be it Twitter, Facebook, the recently launched TSU [which has over 2 Million People] and so on. It is about Interaction.

So the first Tip is:

  1. Count your Interactions. Get People to Interact. Not just plain Follow. 
  2. #HashTags do not really generate a lot of Following. Surprising? Yes, it is fact that #HashTags is good for a time bound conversation. It is not for gaining Followers. Have interest based conversation and see how people will join you. 
  3. One most important thought: Stop Self Promotion [Yourself and / or Your Brand]. 
  4. Stop right there if you are going to 'copy paste' replies. Specially the Customer Care: 'We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to you, we understand.......' Stop this right there. How have you treated Customer A differently from Customer B on a Platform called Social Media?!
  5. Reply and respect people if they have Tweeted about You or Your Brand. One of the best is to Re-Tweet. This gives everyone a chance to be seen. 
  6. Please provide useful information. Your people will definitely cherish a 140 Character of value! They will 'favorite' your Tweet! If more then give the Link.
  7. Do not be anonymous. People interact with People not with Robots and just a Logo.
  8. Location [Not your complete address or whereabouts which can be a little risky] however it is good to know from where you are. 
  9. Ranting away Negative thoughts is not atall the way to go.
  10. Be Positive, Be Transparent, Be Human, Be informative, Be Social!

BitCoin Will Not Vanish just Because It Is Virtual - Social Media

Bitcoins are Digital Currency which are sent easily through the Internet, without the hassle of seeking a third party. The Transactions are secured. They are irreversible by design. They are fast. Funds received are available for spending within minutes. They cost very little, especially compared to other payment networks. The supply of Bitcoins is regulated by software and the agreement of users of the system and cannot be manipulated by any Government, Bank, Organization or Individual. The limited inflation of the Bitcoin system's money supply is distributed evenly [by CPU power] to miners who help secure the network. So if you help in creation you are certain to make a couple of Bitcoins; Although this option is no more readily available.

Points To Remember With Regards To Bitcoins:
  • The Bitcoin valuation market is like share market - it is volatile. For instance As On February 1 Monday 2016 the Bitcoin Price in Indian Rupees is: 25,504/- For One Bitcoin and In Dollars it is 378.04 US Dollar For One Bitcoin.
  • Bitcoin payments are irreversible. This means they can only be refunded by the person receiving the funds. Luckily Bitcoin can detect typos and usually will not let you send money to an invalid address by mistake. Additional services might exist in the future to provide more choice and protection for the consumer.
  • Remember, all Bitcoin transactions are stored publicly and permanently on the Network, which means anyone can see the balance and transactions of any Bitcoin address. However, the identity of the user behind an address remains unknown until information is revealed during a purchase or in other circumstances. This is one reason why Bitcoin addresses should only be used once. Always remember that it is your responsibility to adopt good practices in order to protect your privacy.
  • Before you start collecting Bitcoins you might as well register on an OnLine wallet. This is similar to a Bank. Your Bitcoins can be stored and sold there. 
  • There are many ways to collect Bitcoins. Being a Digital Currency you get it via the Internet. 
  • You need not know about the technology to be a simple user of Bitcoins. It is important that you understand that this Peer - To - Peer Technology operates with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the Network. Bitcoin is an open-source; that is, its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin. Nobody owns the Bitcoin network much like no one owns the technology behind EMail and Messengers. Bitcoin is controlled by all Bitcoin users around the world. While developers are improving the software, they can't force a change in the Bitcoin protocol because all users are free to choose what software and version they use. In order to stay compatible with each other, all users need to use Software complying with the same rules. Bitcoin can only work correctly with a complete consensus among all users. Therefore, all users and developers have a strong incentive to protect this consensus.
  • The good part is all can jump into it! Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system!  
  • At the end of August 2013, the Value of all Bitcoins in circulation exceeded US$ 1.5 billion with millions of Dollars worth of Bitcoins exchanged daily.
  • Just because it is Virtual Money it does not mean that Bitcoin will vanish someday. Bitcoin users have exclusive control over their funds.
  • Bitcoins can also be exchanged in physical form as well. They are called Casascius Coins, but paying with a Mobile Phone usually remains more convenient.
  • Bitcoin is definitely not an overnight getting rich concept.

BitCoins As Universal OnLine Social Currency - Social Media

One OnLine World - One Currency. Makes sense? Bitcoin is an innovative payment network and a new kind of Currency. Interesting? Yes this Currency can be transferred to your Bank Account and you will have your own Currency. Well you do have BitCoin Banks that enable this process. I guess it can be safely said that BitCoins is a 'OnLine Social Currency'. Why? There is a lot of OnLine Socializing taking place.

You can earn BitCoins in various ways. For example by Mining it OnLine, by playing games, by winning contest, by doing OnLine Freelance Jobs.... There are phone Apps as well for all this. Makes life good. What say.

BitCoins uses Peer - To - Peer Technology. What does this mean - well put it simply it uses the same format as Messengers for instance. It is important that you understand that this Peer - To - Peer Technology operates with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the Network. Bitcoin is an open-source; that is, its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin. The good part is all can jump into it! Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system! 

You can make and accept payments as Bitcoins. Yes! Merely using the Bitcoin supports it's growth. It is like currency.
