2 forgotten steps of social media management

The list of social media platforms that should be used in online marketing is endless. When a company embraces every networking site and uses them to promote brand awareness, organic search engine optimization (SEO) efforts may also improve. However, there are many ways to fail in social media marketing, so it's often advised to sit back and observe before jumping head-first into the game. For example, in B2B marketing, LinkedIn is the obvious service of choice. While the basics of social
media may be inherent, like updating sites regularly with useful information, there are other steps that need to be taken if networks are going to produce lucrative returns.

Here are two often forgotten tips of social media marketing

1.) Encourage involvement – It's one thing to request followers and friends engage with posted content, but asking staff members to interact with the information can spark conversations. In some cases, other followers may get more involved when there are already comments or likes posted to a page.

2.) Pay close attention to comments – Marketers need to pay close attention to comments posted online. Some of these posts may be questions directed toward the brand, and those queries need to be answered if the account is to become interactive and worthwhile. This is one of the most essential, but often forgotten, steps of social media management.
