The social web is now part of everyday life in the way that email or search engines are. Many companies believe their online presence must have social elements and they usually should. This isn't because a good website is somehow sub-standard without them but because they provide huge opportunities to engage with customers and transform a passive audience into a passionate community.
Social Media refers to websites or mobile apps that enable people to converse with their peers at a deeper level than mere words can convey and to create juicy content that they then want to share. This dialogue is often perceived as among consumers but the firm with social media in its genes can join this conversation and tap into a genuinely virtuous circle.
Social Business is about online tools, such as CQ Spark, that employ the familiarity of the social environment to empower colleagues to collaborate more effectively. By understanding these ideas, an organisation can foster a more creative yet secure working environment with innovation and communication at its core. In short, the firm evolves from machine into brain.
Boost your search-ranking
The more people talk about your firm and then develop social links with you online, the more prominent you will become to search engines. Forget trying to trick Google, it's that simple.
Become more believable
If you speak to customers in a consistent language they relate to, you'll build a circle of trust. The social sphere allows you to step inside the customer’s world and understand their needs, in particular, those most inclined to adopt your brand anyway.
Create a community
Don't rely entirely on others to advocate what you do. A simple set of social tools will help you to steer this narrative to your own benefit – and provide better customer service too.
