3 Must Have Social Media Tools for Businesses

img-5

There isn’t always a person responsible for marketing in small and medium organisations. So more often than not, social media is overlooked, perhaps with an odd tweet before or during an event. Whilst that is better than nothing, isn’t the best way to use social media. So for those who want to dabble but don’t want to spend too long, here are the 3 must have social media tools for B2B tech companies.

1. Twitter

You can spend as little as one day per month on Twitter and get good results. But you can’t really spend less time than 2 hours per week and expect anything to come of it. Using tools such as Hootsuite and Tweriod, you can schedule tweets so that you have new posts appearing daily. This is particularly important if you have a website twitter feed – you need fresh content for returning visitors and it helps with SEO.

2. Linkedin

Most tech companies by now have a LinkedIn company page. But also it is vital to have a person as the face of the company on LinkedIn because posting to groups is done via a personal profile rather than a company. In most companies this is the CEO. LinkedIn Groups are very good for brand awareness and lead generation. Read how to get business from LinkedIn.

3. Blog

The other 2 don’t work as well without this. Posting blogs weekly ideally – but realistically it might be bi-monthly or monthly, enables you to promote your company and brand across social media. Read more on creating and maintaining your B2B blog. 

So that is my 3 must have social media tools for B2B tech companies. Do you agree? What are your top three?

Hi Aisling,
A friend recently gave me a copy of Working Out Loud, I was very impressed. He too promotes Twitter strongly and LinkedIn. It will encourage me to look more closely. Thanks for the nudge.
