The difference between companies who succeed in the social media realm and those who fail really boils down to how they use the opportunities they’re given by these outlets.
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 03, 2013
IronMonk Solutions have analyzed trends across social media platforms to identify the biggest problems faced by naïve businesses. The informal report describes in plain English how to identify five key issues that can inadvertently harm an online reputation.
“With every social media platform there’s a unique culture,” the spokesperson explained, “most business people are on Facebook and will identify with, for instance, the annoyance of seeing hashtags from TweetDeck in their newsfeed. Crossing these cultures is bound to cause problems for how businesses are perceived. But this is just the start.”
The five top problems businesses cause themselves have been identified as Tweeting About Yourself, Posting Inconsistently, Working Without a Plan, Not Establishing Your Voice and Ignoring Your Messages. While much of this may raise more questions than answers, the report goes into detail explaining these shortfalls and how companies can begin to counter them.
The company operates out of New York City and Calgary, specializing in social media consultancy. A spokesperson explained, “The difference between companies who succeed in the social media realm and those who fail really boils down to how they use the opportunities they’re given by these outlets. At best, it is a great means by which to get free advertising, establish strong relationships with, and loyalty from, customers. At worst it can make a company look ignorant, disconnected or behind the times. It’s essential to get this right, which is why we’re on hand to advise, and publish reports like this to help businesses avoid the basic mistakes.”
