Develoa a Social Media Marketing Strategy as per Nature of the Business.
Social media has changed the business world. Suddenly, marketing a business isn’t just about talking to people, it’s about talking with people. The one-sided sales pitch is now a multi-directional community conversation. The power to control the brand message has largely been removed from a business’ hands. Social media marketing, or SMM, is all about engagement. It’s a business’s opportunity to connect with clients and build a long-term customer relationship built on communication and trust. Today, the customer-business power relationship is skewed toward the customer, with every individual able to publicly voice concerns and garner media attention, as every person is now a media publisher. As a result, businesses must do their best to keep the conversation positive through their participation. A business can’t quell all public displays of dissatisfaction; however, by following SMM strategies, a business can promote a message that speaks to its customer service successes through attentive awareness and genuine dedication to serving customers’ needs. This is why SMM is a powerful and necessary tool for all brands today. Education and services provided by SMM professionals can help a business improve their presence and develop a positive reputation online.
A business that is not interacting with clients through social media may be hurting their brand in several ways: the risk of fading away from their customer base’s top-of-mind recall; missed opportunities to reach new clients; and falling out of public favor by missing important conversations taking place online. So what’s a business to do? With the help of qualified SMM experts, a company can optimize their social media presence. Social media marketing is executed through many platforms, with a few of the popular platforms being a blog, Facebook, Twitter, Yelp and YouTube. However, before a business engages in any particular platform, research must be put into locating the places where the intended audience is active online, and creating a social media strategy to reach them in relevant spaces. SMM services begin with research to identify those social media platforms where participation will produce the greatest pay off.
An SMM company must tailor SMM strategies to the needs of the individual business. Take a local bakery, for example. A bakery may do well to optimize their presence in Yelp and invite customers to review their cakes and pastries on the social review network. The bakery may also find value in Twitter by tweeting a word of the day that will get the first 10 customers a free cupcake if they come to the shop and say the “magic” word. In this SMM strategy, Yelp is used as the platform for building up reviews that reflect the brand as an established business with reliable products and services. Yelp has the added benefit for the business because it’s a trusted signal for the local map service of Google, the most popular search engine. Meanwhile, Twitter is used to entice people to visit the shop via rewards. Furthermore, Twitter is a conversation driver, encouraging people to become friendly with the brand’s representatives and share worthy tweets with their connections. Users of social media platforms use each differently, and the rules of engagement are largely defined by the users themselves. This is why SMM professionals understand that SMM services are not one-size-fits-all. SMM experts at Bruce Clay, Inc. help you navigate a community’s expectations and the value of brand presence as you decide how to devote resources to social media platforms. A strategic SMM company can help you develop and execute social media policy and practices that aid in community outreach, reputation management and brand loyalty for your business.

This is about the 7th hosting company I have used. Many have near the same services but the tech support can be worlds apart. Their tech support, is a one button select and a fast answer. They can access all my data, look at the site, are informed about any question I have asked - no matter how convoluted, are knowledgeable about sophisticated web techniques and technical areas, are helpful, courteous and informative. It's what most companies claim to do but never succeed at. When you are hosting a clients site, tech support is your lifeline - and a smart, competent and fast support people are rare and perhaps, the greatest value a company can offer. I have moved all of my websites here.
I have been a dynamic website developer for a couple of decades now and have tried a wide variety of hosting service providers over the many years. I found INSIGHT TECHNOLOGY LLC via one of my clients recommendation, so I thought I would give them a try. From day one, their customer service has surpassed any of my expectations. From email correspondence to live chat support, I consistently receive friendly, educated and helpful service. Since I am a one-man shop here, my time is critical. INSIGHT TECHNOLOGY has cut the time I have to work with support and setting up my network by at least 75%. In addition, their control panel and site hosting layout is very user-friendly and logical. Allowing more time for me to program and launch new products. I am now in the process of migrating my various other domains over to INSIGHT and happy to do so.
I am a web devloper, and have hundreds of clients that I refer for hosting. Now, in all honesty, I don't have an affiliate account with INSIGHT TECHNOLOGY LLC, and previously, I referred clients to multiple hosting companies because my reference should be based on what is best for the client, not on whether I make money from it or not. I have dealt with dozens of different hosting companies over the years, (from clients who already had hosting with other companies) and they range from the absolute worst (Netfirms and GoDaddy) to the mediocre, (1+1 and MediaTemple) to companies that started out good and then went downhill (Bluehost). I now only refer clients to Best Web-Host. The reason that I only refer to Best Web-Host is without a doubt it's technical support. Things go wrong with hosting - that is normal, but you really get a sense of a company by how they handle when the inevitable problems come up. They have 24/7 support, (and I get to talk to someone who actually understands English) and are prompt, helpful and take care of the issue immediately. They offer services that other companies in their price range do not support.
