How To Control And Safely Manage Your Social Media Ownership

The Dangers of Business Owners Not Having Proper Ownership of their Social Media Accounts

With nearly 3.5 billion social media users worldwide, the opportunity to reach your ideal audience on social media is significant. While many business owners understand the effectiveness of social media, it's not a project taken lightly. As the business owner, you might choose to add a social media specialist to your team or, most commonly, outsource assistance from an agency to help optimize your efforts.

Once you begin the onboarding process with your agency of choice, there are a few ways they can start posting on your behalf. The agency can create the account(s), request you share your log-in credentials, or in Facebook and LinkedIn’s case, add you to the platform an admin.

While neither option is wrong, there are additional steps to take to ensure you have complete access and control to your page. In this blog, we'll share the dangers of not having enough access to your platforms, how to verify whether you are the owner of your accounts, and which type of access levels you can expect from each social media platform.

5 Reasons Why Social Media Is Such A Powerful Marketing Tool

Don’t Leave Social Media Out of Your Marketing Strategy! Here’s Why.

If there’s one constant thing about life—it’s change. Years ago, if a business wanted to advertise their services to the local area, they’d purchase an ad in the newspaper or run a commercial on the radio or TV.

Today, we can no longer guarantee that your audience is listening to the radio or flipping through channels. Some might be there, but many are not. But what we can guarantee is that most of your current or future customers are on social media.

In fact, half of the world’s population is already using social media, with 11 new people joining every second. You can reach new and existing audiences through organic postings or ads that target users already interested in your industry in your area.

In this article, we’ll look at how sharing on social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and more can help businesses, and five reasons why you should include it in your marketing strategy.
