Getting Started in Social Media: A Mambo checklist

Conversations about your brand are happening – whether you partake or not. What are customers and competitors saying? How can you differentiate your company from all that chatter? Where, online, are these conversations happening?

Mambo has chosen ten social media techniques as business-critical for today’s marketplace.

1. Listen to Conversations on Social Media. Run a social media monitoring program to keep tabs on chatter about your product or company. Discussions and opinions are happening on forums, Facebook, blogs and a slew of other sites – hear what they are saying so you can respond strategically.

2. Join Other Thought Leaders. Set-up a personal and company profile on Linkedin.com. Contribute to “Groups” and “Answers” discussions. This builds awareness for your company, establishes your brand voice, and most importantly, positions your personnel as thought leaders in the industry. LinkedIn participation also boosts SEO presence and raises awareness in your industry.
