Twitter or Facebook?
April 12, 2013
Small business owners often compare between Twitter or Facebook to decide where they should focus their time and efforts. They might think they can squeeze in managing one social media account, but probably not two.
Here are five ideas every small business owner should know about social media world.
Know how often you are going to be at the control. If you can see yourself updating your social media account once a day, and maybe checking what’s been said and replying to comments once a day, this might make Facebook more attractive to you.
Know where your customers are. Ask people who spend money with you, which social networks they use. Over half of the online user’s population has a Facebook account, and there are almost 24 million registered Twitter users, according to recently-stated figures. This gives you idea where you can do social media marketing.
Know how much you can put into this at the very beginning. Generally speaking, a Twitter account can be set up very quickly, with Facebook, more thought needs to be put into the overall experience people have when they land on your page. This is what we call social media management.
Know what your plans are for growth. With Facebook, when people like your page, their friends will be made aware of that fact. Twitter advertising is still very much in its infancy.
Know how much statistical information you want access to. Facebook provides free spreadsheets packed full of data about your page. Twitter doesn’t.
