Social Media : Which One to Use

How many social media networks do you belong too?  I have 4 that I am working to fine tune.  I use Twitter @hightouchweb and @kim_kolb,  I have a Linked In account, a Facebook account, and our Filter the Noise Blog.

Many of our clients have no clue what social media is, or they are really excited about getting into Social Media and that is where it stops, or they are terrified by what is to become of them with the social media frenzy.  At first it can be overwhelming by trying to understand all the ins and outs of the whole "social media etiquette".  The best thing is to dive in and start swimming.  Let's face it, all the news media, talk shows, celebrities and even restaurants are using Twitter.  Our local soccer association is on twitter.  They keep us updated on cancellations, scores, and changes in events.    

As a company, keeping your customers engaged is essential to keeping your Brand on their mind.  Gone are the days of long drawn out email blasts to let customers know what is going on.  Why not get them following you on Twitter.  140 characters lets you tell them what is important.  As technology grows our attention spans decrease.  If you can't get the point across in 140 characters, maybe you need to rethink your message.

Twitter has increased 1,382% year-over-year in February, registering more than 7 million unique visitors in the US for the month, according to Mashable, The Social Media Guide.  Twitter is by far the easiest and quickest tool to use.  

If you have yet to get involved in the Social Media Movement, you may want to take some time to start.  Get involved, be informed, and stay in touch.  

Look for our webinar on Social Media 101: Setting Up The Beginner, at the end of the month. Contact us now if you are interested.

Which Social Media tools are you using?  Which ones would you not use?  I would love to hear feedback.
