How To Use LinkedIn To Grow Your Brand and Business

If you are like most people, you have a LinkedIn professional profile that's just sitting there; you occasionally check LinkedIn to accept incoming connection requests, and update your experience as you move from one position to another. We are not talking about leveraging LinkedIn for your career professional growth though. We are talking about using LinkedIn to explicitly grow your brand and business, locally and nationally, and even internationally.

Did You Know?

80% of B2B marketing leads from social media come through LinkedIn. 92% of B2B marketers use the platform over all others. Marketers say they see a 28% lower cost per lead with LinkedIn Sponsored Content than other programs. Marketers love LinkedIn, and Business Owners should too!

Seven Steps to Social Media Success for Small Business

What are the Seven Steps to Social Media Success for Small Business?

How can a small business achieve measurable success and consistent ROI using social media marketing on a budget? oGoing founder Sanjay Dalal presents seven steps to social media success.

Small businesses are beginning to launch and grow their social media initiatives. These companies need guidance and education on how to create an effective social media strategy, navigate the social networks, manage customer interactions, analyze the results, and achieve consistent ROI.

oGoing is USA's leading local business social network. Join oGoing to get found online, share your story, promote products & services, and attract new customers. Join here.


 oGoing presents the Seven Steps to Success with Social Media Marketing for Small Business guide:


Seven Steps to Social Media Success

Social Media Success Step 1: Set social media objectives and goals


What does the business want to gain from social media marketing initiatives? What is the key objective? Is it to increase qualified leads, deliver better customer service, get more business, create a great brand, obtain better reviews or gain more trust? If the business is starting out on social media, it will take a lot of effort and time to undertake multiple objectives simultaneously. Ask the marketing manager or owner what their immediate goals are! Be very specific about the social media marketing objectives.

Social Media Success Step 2: Determine the social media channels, and create a beautiful profile or two

It's easy to fall in the trap of creating profiles on multiple social media channels, and then forgetting about them. Just having a profile is like an empty store front. No customer would dare go there. Social media is all about engagement. Each social media channel takes at least 4 to 6 hours of management every week. A business needs to be judicious of the time and resources, and start out with one or two social media channels. Creating a beautiful profile that exemplifies the business and gets customers excited is the first step.

Social Media Success Step 3: Listen and learn from the customers, partners and industry experts

Ask this question: "Who are our customers and what can we learn from what they are saying and doing?" Most of the business' customers would already be using social media. It's easy to find these customers (search for them), and see what's going on. The business also needs to think about "Who are the customers' customers?" In short, a business must take the time to learn about the customers' needs, and understand the customers' perceptions. The business should also learn how the partners are using social media, what the experts are saying and the industry trends.

Social Media Success Step 4: Make new connections with customers

It's time to connect! Once the business has determined who the customers, prospects, partners and experts are, it should begin connecting with them. Connect slowly! It may not make sense to connect with competing customers at the same time. It's best to follow a few customers, and engage well with them. Are more connections better? Just connecting with many users without real engagement does not yield promising results. Do not get caught up in the game of buying new followers or fans for the social channels - most of the paid connections are inactive users and the business will not materially benefit from them. Quality of connections matter a lot, not the quantity.

Social Media Success Step 5: Engage with customers

Promote the customers, ask customers for feedback, and provide answers to questions. Once a business begins listening and following the customers, the managers should share what their customers are saying. Promote the customers' updates. Respond to customers' messages. Get feedback about the products and services from the customers. Ask questions from customers about their updates and begin a conversation. Whenever possible, answer the customers' questions immediately and frequently. Engage with the customers! The more a business engages with their customers and prospects online, the better the ROI.

Social Media Success Step 6: Share relevant content. What would inspire and excite the customers?

Ask this question: "What do your customers want to learn from you?" Are customers seeing and treating the business as the subject matter or industry expert? Does the business have something interesting, inspiring and useful to share that will get them excited? Customers do not have the time to check your business updates, stories, product briefs and services daily. Customers have their own businesses to run. Customers want something that can help them do better business, and the job of social media managers is to provide this information. This is where the rubber meets the road.

Social Media Success Step 7: Analyze and repeat

Did the business realize the aforementioned social media goals? If the business followed through on the six success steps above, it would achieve most of the said objectives. How does one achieve all the goals? It's quite simple: Do more of what's working. Correct what's not. Be nimble! Social media is a fast-changing paradigm. It pays to be creative, and if a business has to start all over again, that's fine! The best barometer for success: Are the customers engaged?
