The Social Media Presence of Social Organisations

  • Social media has proven to be very important for organisations, charities and businesses by being one of the main reasons behind increased traffic to their sites.

    However, there are still many organisations who are not taking full advantage of social media platforms by not regularly updating their users and followers with content, nor sharing links that their users could find useful.

    Here are some tips that can help create a larger social media presence for your social organisation in a fast and inexpensive way:

    1) Variety - It is important to integrate social media content, and to ensure that it is interesting and relevant for your users. Also, social media can be a valuable tool in giving out information quickly, and the more you keep your users updated with a mixture of topics, ideas and concepts, the more effective your social media content becomes.

    2) Listen - It is important to take time out and listen to your followers and check what is being commented on your posts. The use of social media can be great in answering questions, finding out more about your users and solving any issues that users may have with your social organisation.           

    3) Update - Your account(s) should be regularly and consistently updated. Even if it is not directly about your social organisation, link of relevant companies and latest news about what your social organisation promotes can be enough to keep your users interested and on the lookout for your presence on social media.  

    These tips can enhance your social organisation, and the relationship that you have with your users and followers. Once a consistent flow of content is developed, it will be easier for users and similar organisations to reach out to you if need be.
