Let's start things up with a video - What is Social Media?
The basics for your strategy in Social Media
Why? What's your main purpose of going social?
Set up goals
Be serious and sincere
It's not all about business. Dare to be personal and you gain your customers trust.
Even if you represent an organisation - be yourself!
Be serious - givers gain!
Sharing is caring!
Don't be afraid to share and give - all from dos and don'ts about your products to showing off examples of how other use your products/services (maybe even competitors).
Doesn't always have to be about your company or your product. Share other links/videos etc you find interesting and might be interesting to your followers.
Don't spam! Sharing is good but don't over-do it.
Basicly: follow people that interests you. But it is always good to follow people doing what you do (great inspiration), clients and customers, inspirational people in general
The best way to gain followers is to follow others
Be active where you are. Throw yourself in to debates on Twitter, ask your Facebook page members questions and make sure you answer any questions asked, comment on other peoples posts on Google+.
It's not the brand with the most Facebook likes that wins - it's the one with the most engaged ones that does
Success don't come over night. Give your social strategy at least a couple of months and don't give up too easy!
