“Your audience is the lifeblood of your business, and knowing who they are and what they want is a key to success,” says Mitch Monsen of the Social Media Examiner, and I couldn’t agree more!
Whatever your source of social media, be it Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, etc. your audience provides a plethora of market intelligence. This knowledge consequently gives you valuable demographic information and market insight for your business. However, as I’ve noted in the past, the first step is to identify your target customer/prospect and then evaluate and implement only the social media that is appropriate for your audience and business (again…if your target is senior citizens, you probably shouldn’t be tweeting!)
The Social Media Examiner has a great online tip sheet titled “4 Ways to Discover More About Your Audience With Social Media.” Here’s a quick highlight:
- How do they describe themselves?
- When are they most socially active?
- Whom do they listen to?
- What content do they want?
For detailed information, be sure to read this tip sheet at the Social Media Examiner.
Similarly, I’d suggest you read a prior “exSpot” Blog post which focuses on how you can “Drive Sales 24 Hours a Day” through developing powerful web content. Here you’ll learn how to:
- identify your ideal target audience
- set your small business goals and objectives
- develop compelling content
- leverage SEO
