As our company’s representatives, we are careful to leave a positive impression to people we come into contact with at business mixers. We should be mindful that many of the same rules in physical settings can be the same with our social media. These simple guides of etiquette should be important to remember:
Be a good listener. Social Media is not only about posting and having others read your information. Pay attention to others post. There may be an opportunity to build a relationship, do business, or learn.
Be engaged. One sided interaction is never absorbed favorably. Share valuable information instead of participating in high pressure sales.
Be educated. Make sure to know your product. Miss information on a product or service can come back to haunt a company for years to come.
Be consistent. Being visible is a great way to build your credibility and for people to find your business when they actually need your services after they have already become familiar with your company.
Be positive. Don’t bash competitors and stay way from making negative comments about other social media users. Great attitude goes a long way to attract the clients you seek.
