Our co-host, Geoffrey Brown of GoDaddy Social, was kind enough to answer a few questions that provide a primer for the kinds of tips we share in the webinar.
Q: Who are my happy customers and how do I find them?
Geoffrey: Your happy customers are the ones talking positively about you on review sites and tagging your business in photos on your social media channels. Get engaged with them, make them feel special. Give them a public shout out for leaving you a review or tagging you in a post. It helps them feel appreciated, and it helps you create brand awareness and engagement.
Q: Why is having an Instagram account for your local business important?
Geoffrey: Instagram is important for a local business because its does three things: 1) It’s the mecca of user-generated content (so it helps you save time as a business creating content and it helps you become even more engaged with your audience), 2) you can capture “in-the-moment content” on your stories show them behind-the-scenes or by going live and answering questions, and 3) it gives you a chance to show even more of your personality.
Q: How often should I be posting on Twitter or Instagram?
Geoffrey: I suggest posting on your social media sites 2-4 times a week. It gives you a chance to vary your content and engage with your customers. It also provides an opportunity for you to promote an event or special you might have going on at your business.
