Small Business Social Media Networking and Marketing

clock August 10, 2013 09:14 by author Ogoing Team

Many Small Business Owners, Proprietors and Entrepreneurs are using social networking to create their social media profiles, share and promote updates about their products and services, make new online connections, get warm leads and grow their brand!

Millions, if not billions, of potential customers are using social media every day! Thus there are plenty of incentives for small businesses to jump right in...

What are some of the reasons small businesses are joining and marketing their company through social media?

1. It's inexpensive - well, technically it's free! However, free doesn't mean the time, expertise and resources it takes to create a beautiful profile and manage it well. It can take few hours a week at a minimum if owners want social media to yield results!

2. It's easy to use - again, easy for the most part. Most businesses still don't know how to connect or follow or engage with potential customers. The easy part is creating a profile and sharing a few updates. The hard part is getting customers to notice what you are saying.

3. My customers (and competitors) use social media - go where your customers are! The key is finding the customers, connecting with them and engaging with them to establish trust and credibility. And look out for competitors as they poach the same customers.

4. It doesn't take a lot of time - This is what small businesses think as they begin their social media journey. The reality is different... managing just one social network, sharing frequent updates, promoting customers and asking questions can easily take four to six hours a week.

What are the reasons you are joining social networks? Are you seeing some traction? Have you made new connections? oGoing Small Business Social Media Network is great for small businesses to build trusted connections, promote products and services, generate website traffic, grow SEO ranking and attract new customers.

Small Businesses and SMB are embracing social media to promote their brand, increase online visibility, build quality website traffic, provide effective customer service, generate warm leads and attract new customers. oGoing presents best practices for small business social media marketing

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) July 29, 2013

oGoing Small Business Social Network

"Social media marketing and networking helps small business owners, marketers and SMB professionals do more with their customers: connect more, engage more, service more, learn more and promote more." Sanjay Dalal, founder & CEO, oGoing. "oGoing provides an amazing social network and social media marketing platform for small business."

Many business owners, entrepreneurs and SMB need help managing their social media. The experts at oGoing have created a highly affordable social media marketing package for $99 monthly. Learn more about the oGoing Max social media solution.

How effective is social media marketing? Here are some key stats:* Most businesses are spending more than one hour a day on social media marketing. Businesses generate more than 100 percent of web traffic if they have 51 to 100 followers on Twitter than those with 25 or less. Businesses nearly doubled their online traffic after they passed 1,000 Facebook likes. LinkedIn business pages have the most number of generated customers, followed by Twitter and Facebook. Google+ is effectively used by marketers to grow their SEO ranking and increase online visibility. oGoing integrates with Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Twitter.

Many online users and shoppers rely on social media to make a purchasing decision, or purchase a product or service through a recommendation on social media. Majority of social media users are more likely to buy a product or pay a service from a business connected with them.

oGoing presents Seven Best Practices for Social Media Marketing for Small Businesses and Professionals:

1. Get started with one or two social network channels; preferably where the customers are, and stay with these channels for at least six months. Don't fall in the trap of starting with too many channels. Stay focused and work hard to create an engaging presence.

2. Spend some time creating a beautiful profile! First impressions matter; customers want to get excited and inspired when they connect on these social media channels. Begin sharing the channels with the customers through the website, emails, business cards, blogs and more!

3. Follow the customers, promote the customers, and reply to their updates. The best way to engage with customers is listen to what they are saying, promote their key updates, and reply to updates wherever possible.

4. Ask lots of questions. The best way to start discussions and immerse your audience is asking questions about a particular industry, new products, current trends, news and events, products and services, and more. Customers are always looking to respond to questions.

5. Share educational, valuable and inspiring content with the customers, especially when traffic is at its peak i.e. when most of the customers are online on the social networks. Be creative and edgy when sharing. Always include a call to action in the content, such as a link to a white paper, an article, invitation to an event, or something relevant.

6. Provide customer support and obtain feedback using social media. This is often the best and easiest way to get going on social media. Ask customers to share their support issues, comments and concerns on social media. Create a separate handle to deliver customer service.

7. Analyze, reflect and re-charge. Social media marketing has to yield positive results versus set goals. "How effective is the social media execution?" Analyze the results, reflect on what worked and did not work, and re-charge the batteries to do more. Be flexible and nimble.

Do Small Businesses Understand Social Media?

clock May 19, 2013 16:39 by author Ogoing Team

According to this article's author, who has worked with several small businesses and nonprofits, social media is still misunderstood!

5 things about social media that small businesses should understand, as they seek to expand their online presence properly:

1. Social media is not traditional media

Most small business owners are familiar with traditional media: broadcast, print, outdoor, and direct mail. They’ve used, or at least tried, most of them.

2. Social media is a long term proposition with a different type of ROI measurement

Small businesses are used to talking about impressions, and seeing fairly quick results and return on investment from their marketing and advertising efforts.

3. Social media does not exist in a vacuum

For some reason, small businesses seem to think of social media as its own little entity.

4. Social media is not merely an add-on or extra

Going along with the previous point, many small businesses treat social media as the proverbial red-headed step child.

5. Social media isn’t (only) Facebook

For many small businesses, social media = Facebook. Now, I understand that it’s often the first thing to come to mind because of how big and pervasive it is.

Majority of small business owners and marketers are investing a minimum of four to six hours a week on social media marketing. Social Media Marketing involves a lot of work that includes: chalking out a strategy, creating and posting engaging content, connecting with new customers and influencers, collaborating and having conversations with customers, providing customer service, sharing new offers and specials, following up with new leads, converting warm leads to sales, and checking and monitoring the impact of social media campaigns.

oGoing introduces highly affordable and innovative social media marketing service, oGoing Max for maximum engagement with customers, increasing online exposure, improving SEO, sharing content, growing website traffic and attracting more customers. Small business owners, entrepreneurs, service providers and SMB who don't have the time and resources to do social media themselves love the new oGoing Max service for only $99 monthly price. Take the guesswork out of social media.

Business Networking Redefined - Ogoing Social Network

clock September 3, 2012 12:10 by author Ogoing Team

Get Real Leads on Ogoing Small Business Social Network Small Business Owners understand the real value of business networking. How many networking events do owners, startups, entrepreneurs and service providers attend to generate new leads? Many go to at least one networking event a month to meet and interact with new professionals, and learn what they do. When they are at the event, owners share what they do, find common points of interest, exchange business cards, and follow up! At large networking events or mixers, a master networker can make twenty-five to fifty new connections. Within a couple of days, a personal email is sent to the new contacts, and often, followed up with phone calls asking for a face-to-face meeting. On an average, out of the fifty new prospects one makes at the networking mixer, five to ten prospects would become leads, and agree to follow up meetings. After the follow up meetings, one or two contacts will finally convert and become a new client. It could take three to four meetings before the client commits. In essense, from the fifty new contacts made at a networking event, a really good networker can generate one or two customers after active follow-up (around 2% conversion). Face-to-face business networking takes a lot of time, effort and follow-up interactions. There are no short cuts, and there are no two ways about it!

Online Business Networking

Is there an online platform available wherein small business owners can connect with thousands of new businesses, generate new prospects, and obtain qualified leads quickly? Can this online social and business network help accelerate sales and grow your business faster?

Ogoing Small Business Social Network

Ogoing, nation's leading social network for small business, offers the most innovative platform to small business owners and service providers. Ogoing powers online business networking, social networking and social media marketing. Ogoing is the best platform to market your small business, network and share with thousands of owners, and generate new qualified leads.

Beautiful Profile

How does a business go about connecting online on Ogoing, and generating real leads? Just like face-to-face networking wherein the networker puts on a great smile and shares the best elevator speech, small businesses on Ogoing should first create an attractive business profile. Think of your Ogoing profile as your online business card or your store front! It must look amazing! If you don't have time, Ogoing can help create a great profile for you.

What's going on?

After setting up a beautiful profile, next step involves sharing what's going on at your business across various categories - offers, needs, products, services, news and events! For instance, do you have a timely deal to share with the community? What is your most pressing business need? Are you launching a new product or service that you want to talk about? How about an interesting article or best practice that can benefit your customers? Finally, are you hosting or going to an event to network and connect? More "what's going on" updates an owner shares, better the visibility they get on the Ogoing social network and the Internet, and greater the interest your profile will generate from community members and prospects.

New connections

It's time now to make new connections! After setting up a great profile and sharing frequent updates, Ogoing provides you the best platform to connect with new business contacts. Just go to Find Business after you login, and begin searching for your ideal prospects or future clients. For instance, what industry category would they belong to? Are you looking for local or national contacts? Should you care whether the contacts you find are active or less active on Ogoing? Ogoing gives you all the contacts prioritized by their profile completeness, number of following users, number of followers and updates. So you can be rest assured that the contacts that Ogoing shows you first are in all likelihood the most active Ogoing members.

Connections to Leads

Once you research and find the perfect business contacts, you must begin following them. Connect with as few or as many businesses you want. Ogoing does not restrict as to how many businesses you connect to. Once you connect, go ahead and mention these businesses on Ogoing. Learn more about them, and Promote them to the community and on various social networks! In essence, engage with your potential contacts. The more you engage with them, the more they would be interested in what's going on with you, and connect back with you. When the contacts you follow on Ogoing connect back with you, that's when you have a qualified lead! Now, it's your turn to goad this contact into a face-to-face or an online meeting. Did you know that Ogoing provides a built-in messaging system wherein you can send short emails to your contacts? Not only that, Ogoing provides email address of every member! Just go to the member profile page and click on View email address. Ogoing makes it very easy for you to add real business contacts to your database, and help them convert to qualified leads.

Using Social Networking for Marketing Your Small Business

clock May 13, 2012 13:12 by author Ogoing Team

By now, you must be familiar with the many benefits of online social networking for small business marketing. But if this is your first time to venture into the world of social media marketing, here are some suggestions to effectively harness social networking sites to build your brand and promote your business.

  1. Use social networking sites to familiarize people with your area of expertise and create interest in your business. For example, if you are starting a software company, you can post videos on your Facebook wall offering tips and troubleshooting advice on commonly-encountered PC problems.
  2. Build relationships with your customers by maintaining conversations with them. One of the most essential social networking for business marketing techniques is engaging with your customers, and one of the ways you can do that is by using your Facebook wall or Twitter account to solicit feedback from them about your products or customer service, and then responding promptly and directly to any concerns that may be raised.
  3. Use social media to target a specific customer base. Sites such as Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn allow you to create ads that are targeted to particular user groups, i.e. college students or business professionals, based on their profiles. You can use this social networking for small business strategy to boost sales by promoting your services to people who are genuinely interested in availing of them.
  4. Use social networking sites to run promotions that will not only get new customers to sample your products but also reward loyal customers by giving them discounts. For example, you can use your Facebook Fan page to offer printable coupons that can be redeemed for discounts or Tweet your followers about an upcoming sale.
  5. Use your Facebook and Google+ pages to make customers more connected to the company by posting greetings and company updates directly from you. Customers will appreciate hearing from you about what the company is doing to improve its products as well as the latest updates on its activities.

If you have not yet established a presence in a social networking site, why not start by signing up for an account with oGoing? oGoing is an easy-to-use social networking site that allows you to build a unique online profile for your small business, as well as establish links, not only with your customers but also with employees, colleagues and other oGoing community members.

1. Get more prospects and customers
- Ask yourself, why your small business does any marketing at all? What is the primary reason for having a company website? Where do you find your prospects? How do you convert your prospects into real customers? A social network must ultimately result in driving more leads for your business. Although the lead funnel may not happen overnight, it must happen within weeks to months. There is a common misconception that when a business has more followers or fans, it will drive more sales. The quality of contacts matter the most! Your business may have thousands of followers, but very few may be interested in buying anything. How would you drive quality leads? Social Networking is not a get rich quick game. Rather, it takes time and patience to build a real following (unless you are an established brand or celebrity such as Coke or Lady Gaga). Be real on a social network! Share expert information and insights. Provide free stuff, discounts, coupons or loyalty points. Keep your readers intrigued with quality information. The more you stay true, the more prospects and customers you will garner, eventually!  

2. Increase customer loyalty
- This by far has been the biggest claim to fame for small business social networking. A social network brings you closer to your customers and gets them engaged. In some cases, your customers may get too close! On the one hand, your business can cleverly leverage social networks to provide better customer service, get proactive customer feedback, obtain recommendations, and even get customers to share great ideas. However, if you open yourself for customer service, get ready to hear an earful. Customers won't shy away from sharing their negative experiences over and over again publicly. Hear them out! Be a great listener. Apologize. And follow through by providing excellent customer service. Turn that negative customer experience into a positive one! An irate customer who gets great customer service can become a happy and loyal customer for life. Icing on the cake: Customers see that you care!

Now that your small business has opened this new social network channel for providing transparent customer service, stage two will include asking these customers for feedback on everything... for instance, a new marketing campaign and asking them to vote for the one they really like, or a new product feature or enhancement and hearing their thoughts. The loyal customers would be more than happy to share favorable recommendations and testimonials. The unhappy customers will likewise share negative views. Be ready for both! The goal for your local business is to get more positive reviews; at least four stars or better. Better the reviews and ratings, better the potential of attracting new prospects. Finally, receptive customers will likely share new ideas about your brand, current products, competition, and trends. Social Networks can act as great vehicles for increasing customer loyalty, and extracting maximum value from your customers.

3. Become The brand
- A social network is quite possibly the biggest brand equalizer. It sure is great to have the brand and following of a Nike or Starbucks; but, by the same token, a greater brand means even greater scrutiny. You are always under the microscope of corporate social responsibility, and what you think, say and do is analyzed 24/7 by the press, customers, competition and everyone at large. Say or do one bad thing, and your brand gets a huge hit! And in most cases, an irreparable one. On the other hand, if you are a small, niche brand, the social network can do wonders for your business! You can become the most relevant brand for your market by doing the things that matter most for your customers, partners, suppliers, and the community. How you become The Brand? By doing good business. By delivering quality service. By sharing profits. By helping good causes. By caring for your community. Each good action that you undertake adds to your brand value. These actions will transform your brand into the most powerful brand in the marketplace. It takes time to build that brand, and become the word-of-mouth brand that resonates with Kleenex, FedEx or WebEx. Sharing and Caring go hand in hand with Networking. Brand prominence can't happen without investing into planning, goal setting and executing, and staying the course. Hiccups will happen. However, if you follow the best practices of delighting your customers over and over again, you can establish a strong local brand presence, one that customers will remember and recommend.

What social network can do all of the above for your small business? LinkedIn is great for professionals, Twitter works for celebrities and big brands, Facebook is amazing for consumers and friends, Yelp is superb for reviews and retailers, Google Plus is great for getting that jump start, YouTube is tops for business videos and stories, Foursquare is great for checking in, Pinterest gives you an online pinboard, and the list goes on...

If you are a small business that wants it all, a great business profile, a place to promote your products and services, offer latest deals, find new customers, make new connections, and boost your brand, take a look at Ogoing.

What is Small Business Social Media Marketing?

What Is Small Business Social Media Marketing and How Can It Help My Company?
Small business social media marketing has emerged in recent years as a popular way for independent businesses to promote themselves without the need to spend a lot of money. Unlike traditional marketing methods, social media marketing is less about selling and more about building relationships with customers so that they’ll be more willing to deal with you. These relationships are particularly important for small businesses since winning the trust of leads is vital to converting them to customers.

Key other benefits of small business social media marketing include:
  1. Lower marketing costs compared with traditional marketing and promotion methods.
  2. Using social media marketing is more likely to deliver qualified leads to small businesses by creating a community with their customers.
  3. Small business owners can enjoy results from social media marketing with minimal time commitment. Studies have shown that entrepreneurs who commit a minimum of six hours a week to their social media marketing can already see a measurable increase of traffic to their business site.
What are some of the most popular social media sites used in small business social media marketing?
  1. Facebook. With some 150 million members in the US, creating a Facebook page is not only a great way to tell your customers about your business, but also develop connections with them. In particular, many small businesses have made effective use of the Facebook Wall to leave notices, videos and other content for their fans, as well as allowing customers to post their own content.
  2. Twitter. While more popularly associated with celebrities and politicians tweeting the latest updates about their activities and their personal lives, many businesses have also used the microblogging site to introduce new products and services as well as telling customers about upcoming promotions, events and sales.
  3. Company blogs. Although blogs may seem old-fashioned compared with newer social media sites, they continue to be an effective way for companies to deliver information to their customers. Just as importantly, blogs also allow customers to participate in the conversation by posting in the comments section of blog posts.
  4. Emerging social media services including Google+, Pinterest, Foursquare, Instagram, Yelp and many more. Google+ is poised to make the most significant impact since it is being integrated with Google search and key Google services such as Google Places. Google+ now has over 100 million users.

One small business social media site you should be aware of, however, is oGoing, an exclusive small business social network.
