Have You Lost Your Social Media Sanity?


You are using social media to market your business.  You are engaging every day, meeting new connections, finding new business, and starting exciting discussions.   There is so much going on at times that you feel a bit overwhelmed, but are still eager to keep learning.



But, after a while, you begin to slip.  You start cutting corners and begin to get unfocused.  But this is normal right, happens to everyone? 



No!  You need to nip this in the bud now, before you go any further.  When you spend time marketing on social media, you are investing time (and money) into your future online success.  In order to keep the ball rolling, you need to keep your activity consistent!

Is Your Facebook Branding a Mess?  Here’s How to Clean it Up

When marketing your business online, branding is one of the key factors that you need to keep in the forefront of your mind.  Keeping a consistent brand across all of your marketing collateral can help build not only a stronger overall brand, but also a synergistic marketing machine.

So why is it when you throw Facebook into the mix does branding continuity begin to suffer?

Let’s think about your marketing materials: your website, your brochures, your business card, your promotional sheets, your landing pages.  When you were formulating your messages and branding, I’m sure that you took into consideration how it would flow through every aspect of your marketing.  You want your logo to be consistent, your brand colors to be consistent, your message consistent, your contact information consistent.

And why did you do this?  So that when you begin marketing your brand, it is easily recognizable, has impact, has credibility and easily conveys the message of your business.

The hard fact is that if your business has a Facebook Page – this is now officially another part of your marketing collateral.  Which in turn means that it is another branding opportunity and one that you need to make sure that you can brand effectively.

How do you do this?

First, don’t over complicate the task.  Here is the simple way of auditing your Facebook presence for branding.

Social Media Estate Sale: Is Your Competition Grabbing Your Goodies?

Over the years, we have had many potential clients come to us in a flurry of panic over what was being said about them and/or their company online.  People were bashing their service, putting down their products, plagiarizing their content and even discrediting their CEO.

All of these clients were anxious for a quick fix to a situation which had spin way out of their control.  In PR this is what they would call “Damage Control”, but in the social media marketing world this is what I would call “Reactive Marketing”.

But how can a brand make sure that they are not being bad-mouthed online?

If you are not even Googling your company name or your CEO every so often – we really need to talk.  Every time you do something, offline or online, there is a reaction from your audience.  It can be positive, negative or indifferent.  But whatever that reaction is, you need to make sure that you can find as much out about it as possible – not only to protect yourself from bad word, but to also analyze the effectiveness of your marketing strategy and messaging.
