The benefits of setting up a social media account for your business are plenty, however creating a presence on Twitter or LinkedIn can be more time consuming than first thought. Posting regular updates, monitoring audience engagement and followers can quickly turn into a full-time job. Therefore, businesses could benefit from outsourcing their social media activity.
According to Brandwatch 81% of small to medium sized businesses now use some form of social platform, and with the launch of Facebook’s chat bot and WhatsApp’s messenger for business, companies have more opportunities to reach their target audience. However, if you’re large organisation understanding if you should create separate accounts for each service area and when the best time is to post can fill some individuals with the fear of the unknown.
