    Value of using multiple social media platforms

    Locked

    by atemp ·

    I am the social media person for an amateur sporting organisation.

    It is voluntary work and quite a time consuming doing a good job with (1) Facebook to get it right and I also duplicate some of these posts in my club notes section of a (2) local newspaper and we also have an extensive (3) Email Newsletter.

    Although we have an extensive following, only a few people click on LIKE and/or SHARE, I assume that the same would happen for (4) Twitter and (5) Instagram.

    Even though it’s a well-supported sports club, only a few people ever bother to LIKE and SHARE a very diverse range of well-presented posts.

    I am always a little confused as to the value of the effort required to repeat the same posts that I have created on Facebook and duplicate them onto other platforms such as:

    Facebook
    Local Newspaper
    Emailed Newsletter
    Instagram
    twitter.

    Thank you for your thoughts.

      This situation calls for some research. My suggestion: ask a selection of your members what posts they read and what they like or share (and why or why not).
      Just visit the club and discuss it with everybody you see.

      For example, it could be that everybody reads all 5, but shares or likes only 1. Or that nobody reads anything because they aren’t following it. Or that nobody shares because they think other members see it also.

      If, say, nobody follows it on Twitter, then why do it. The local newspaper might be useful to reach non-members with important news, but if everybody already reads it on other media, only use the local newspaper for really important stuff that’s relevant for non-members also.

      Social media platforms can benefit businesses by providing an additional channel for customer support and are essential for building brand relationships. If your business is present on multiple networks it is easier for you to keep track of what is being said about your business and respond accordingly and in real-time.

      Never ever rely on the fact that you can achieve massive heights of business success using a single social media platform. These social media platforms are essential for building brand relationships. If your business has a social media presence, it can only calculate the journey ahead.

      Don’t just wait for the customer to reach your door. Reach the potential customers while making multiple social media platform presence. Every social media has its different outreach, and that are Facebook, Linked In, Snapchat, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter. Infact all the credit goes to the Internet. Due to this, we would be capable of drawing a strategy to engage more and more customers with the social media platforms.

      why should we use multiple social media platforms .

      In reply to Value of using multiple social media platforms

      Social media is a great way for legal firms to engage with current and potential customers, but the question is: how can its potential be maximized? Above all, it is a great way to use multiple social media platforms to get your message to reach a larger audience.

      Nowadays, the overwhelming majority of the UK population is online and this is even more true for those of working age. The widespread use of the internet resulted in extensive social media engagement.

      This landscape has changed as more platforms have emerged and, amid strong competition for usage, many sites have fallen from the wayside. The graveyard of social media includes the likes of Vine, Daily Booth and Virtual Tourist.

      Several social media platforms are particularly prominent in the UK. These include Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram.

      twitter.

      Social Media has the power to completely transform your company, so don’t overlook it’s importance. It’s fine to be reposting on channels such as Facebook, Insta, and Twitter (obviously more shorthand) but maybe try making your newspaper content and newsletters super personalised and inclusive of a lot more info!
