If you are starting out as a business owner and you aren’t sure of where to start in the online world, this post is for you.

Below are five steps for how to effectively build a business on social media

1. Start with a plan and discover the platform that works best for you

The first step for how to effectively build a business on social media is to create a plan. A plan will guide you on what social media to advertise your business, how often you should post, and what you should post.

2. Set your goals and aim to acquire customers

Every business must have a target audience or niche to get customers. Using social media platforms like Facebook for instance is a great way to search for groups that may be interested in your products. You can then share information about your business or service with this target group.

3. Research the competition in the business you want to venture into.

Always carry out research on your competitors who advertise online. You will get a hint on what to improve on based on what competitors lack that can be provided to customers.

4. Build relationships among customers and encourage them to invite others

The customer keeps the business steady so ensure that you build strong relationships with customers even online. Respond to messages urgently, be polite, offer discounts, follow up on customers to find out if they enjoyed your product or service and ask them for suggestions on what you can improve, etc.

5. Focus on quality over quantity.

Above all, value quality over quantity. Ensure that the same quality you offer to customers offline is the same quality you offer customers online. Never compromise on maintaining a good standard when offering your products or service.  When you deliver quality, the customers will always keep coming back and you are sure to get more referrals.
