*Social Media Class
*Blog Post #14-FINAL BLOG FOR CLASS
Is social media worth using? In general for personal use I would say somewhat, but that depends on you…but from a business perspective I would say it’s IMPERATIVE.
As a business you should have as many social media accounts as you can. Why? Because the more you’re on the internet, the more likely you are to get found, and then of course the more likely you are to get business and make MONEY!
Having multiple social media accounts for your business puts your name out there more, and also can give potential customers different perspectives of your business, what it’s about, about you, and various different reviews because of the several different type of social media platforms.
Now for a business, having many types of social media more than likely will bring attention to your business, but unless you use it properly, your various social media platforms you are using won’t get much attention at all. You have to POST! It’s kind of like learning how to ride a bike in a way, if you don’t ride it, you won’t learn, and if you don’t learn, you can’t get anywhere. Same goes for your business. The more you use social media, the more you learn about how to use it, and how different types of posts/updates get different types of attention, and once you’ve learned how to use social media well for your business, you can make it go somewhere! 🙂
When I first started taking this class I thought I knew quite a bit about social media since I had several different social media accounts, but I discovered I actually didn’t know as much as I needed to for when I do start my business.
I am now way more comfortable with several different social media platforms than I was at the beginning of the semester. I can pretty much use each type of social media that I have without a problem now, where at the beginning I got lost and confused and frustrated with using some of the social media sites, but it is totally worth the little bit of stress of having multiple social media accounts for your business. After all, the world is very diverse, so not all your potential customers are going to use one single type of social media. You may have some one one site, and some on another, and a bunch on another, and none on one….ANYWAY…you get the picture! 😀
