Designwest are most definately experts at using social media platforms to our advantage. We estimate that we have probably gained up to 20% more business in the last year alone by using social media platforms such as facebook, twitter and linked-in. All of these can really be very powerful marketing tools if used in the right way and possibly at the right time. Social media can also be a great way of directing traffic back to your website and can be used as an added tool for keeping your website active and potentially more SEO friendly (example facebook updates which are embedded in your website). We have learned through experience that using diffferent social media platforms can suit certain businesses for example facebook is a fantastic tool for reaching your audience if you do anything that is visual i.e. a baker who can promote their fantastic cakes or even people like us who create fantastic designs whereas perhaps twitter may suit a more professional business such as perhaps an accountant who could perhaps tweet money saving tips! People generally are quite visual creatures as well as being inquisitive so are much more likely to view a post that has a picture than one which is text based. Its all about identifying the area and platform that suits you best and using these very powerful tools to your advantage and in a way that is ‘apt’ for your business. Designwest can advise, help with or even manage your social media forays so why not call us today to discuss on 0949382000.
