Knowing your customers and targeting them through Social Media course

 

Course Aim

To enable businesses, professionals and entrepreneurs to know and understand their customers, where to find them and how to engage them using Social Media.

Do you know who your customers are and where to find them online? Are you using Social Media to target your customers?

Customers are the key to having a successful business. When you are writing your sales and marketing messages, content, a Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn post or an email, you need to be able to picture who your customers are like they are a character in a book. If you struggle to describe your customers and where they are online, your marketing and sales efforts won't be targeted.

In today's world of responsive technology, if you want to find out where is the best place in town to eat, or which is the best energy or broadband provider for customer service, people ask online through a post on Social Media like Facebook or Twitter. Then they will read the online reviews written by people sharing their experiences of the products or services. Social Media is the online word of mouth. People trust other people to recommend good products, services and companies. Knowing your customers is key to being a trusted company that people buy from and recommend.

Worldwide, there are over 1.94 billion* monthly active Facebook users and 319 million monthly active Twitter users.

700 million Instagrammers in April 2017 including 100 million new Instagram users since December 2016 and 467 million LinkedIn members around the world.

Social Media offers a large database to attract, target and engage with your customers. Understanding your customer audience and how they are connected online will help you target your communications online -Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. Tailoring your customer communications will help build trust between your customers and your business, growing your brand, business sales and your profit.
