You know that marketing on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social networking sites can drive a lot of traffic to your ecommerce Web site. But how can one person handle it all? Social media management tools can help, and SmallBusinessComputing.com has the lowdown on what they are and why you should care.
What is Social Media Management?
As described in the article, What is Social Networking, and Why Should You Care, Internet-based social media make it easier for people to listen, interact, engage and collaborate with each other. But, as the volume of social media venues and conversations rises, it quickly becomes a time- and labor-intense process to effectively track, converse, monitor and manage them.
Social media management solutions can help you manage outbound and incoming online interactions -- along with other small business marketing activities -- in a more efficient manner. They streamline and consolidate how you listen to and participate in relevant conversations in the different places theyre taking place -- blogs, social networks like Twitter or Facebook, and other public and private Web communities and sites.
They also help you to more easily monitor what people are saying about your business, and by automating the process of delivering your outgoing messages through multiple social media outlets simultaneously, help you to amplify your social media presence across several social networking sites.
