Social media is growing in importance every day for businesses to get in front of, market to, and connect with potential and current customers/clients. With so many options out there, it may sometimes get overwhelming for some when asking the question “Where do I start with social media?” The good news is that as a West Orange Chamber Member, you not only have support with educational presentations, articles, and office hours to assist in getting you started, but you also have wochamber.com to connect with multiple social media avenues all in one place!
Here are three steps that can help you maximize your social media impact through wochamber.com:
- Make sure you connect with at least one of our social media profiles. This includes: “liking” us on Facebook, “following” us on LinkedIn, “following” us on Twitter, and/or “subscribing” to us on YouTube. You can do this from the home page of wochamber.com on the right-hand side of the page, next to the scroll bar. Doing this will enable you to connect and interact with the Chamber as well as other members and give you the opportunity for you to promote your business.
- Show the community you are involved and that you care! You can share from wochamber.com directly to social media when you are registering for/attending events, as well as when you or a fellow Chamber is featured in an article or in the Chamber Blog. The articles/blogs are perfect to share (especially on LinkedIn), to show you are in touch with the local business community.
- Good news travels fast! If you recently had a positive experience with a fellow Chamber member and want to recommend or thank them on social media, you can do so by sharing their Business Directory profile page straight from wochamber.com. Simply search the business, and locate the “share” button with a number of social media icons to choose from. This shows you are a team player who supports your fellow Chamber members; when you support others they will be more inclined to support you!
