1. Create professional, detailed social media profiles
This is the most basic yet important step for any entrepreneur who is planning to start their business on social media. An incomplete profile looks extremely unprofessional, which is why it is so important to complete the profile with all details relevant to your business. Make sure your username/profile username identifies with your company and write a detailed “About Me” section so users can find out what your company does. Use your company logo/banner in your account, include your website, contact details and opening hours, and make sure this information is easily accessible on your profile. Creating a profile only takes a few minutes, but is necessary to leave a positive and lasting impression on your customers.

2. Manage relationships on social media
The goal of companies that establish a social media presence is to maintain contact with existing customers and expand their customer base. To maintain a healthy relationship with your customers, you need to interact with them regularly. A company that engages its followers by regularly publishing quality content will experience exponential growth on social media platforms. It goes without saying that the content should be relevant to the audience to get maximum shares/likes, which would result in greater reach and visibility of your social media account.

3. Interact with the public on social networks
Posting content regularly on your social media accounts is a good start, but engaging with your audience is also very important. Pay attention to your audience’s comments/posts and respond kindly. A company that is responsive to its target audience can easily build long-term relationships. If your audience has questions or concerns, be sure to respond in a friendly and helpful manner. Use your social media account as a tool to build strong connections with your audience.
