Determining the best social media strategy isn’t always easy. Often companies have several goals they want to meet, different social networks they want to be on, and customers across the web they want to engage with. How do you get your messaging in front of the right people, so you can start engaging and building relationships?
Of course, there are lots of ways to do it, and the plan of action is different for every company. But when social networks introduce simple ways to connect with new prospects and customers, like the example below, it may present a new opportunity to make connections.
So here is one example that you may want to implement on your blog – Adding a “Follow Company” button to your website and digital marketing material.
