Fast pitch Softball and Amateur Softball are both incredibly popular forms of the game, although professional teams always have more fans and viewers of each event. When you have a brand of any type, whether you supply uniforms, bats or softballs for players to wear, using social media applications can be a huge advantage for you to utilize. By using social media applications, you will not only be able to gain a variety of new customers through organic advertising (or advertising that takes place through word of mouth of your customers,) but you will also be able to receive feedback on your products and get tips from customers on how you can serve the new customers who are coming to your business in a better and more effective way. In most cases, customers who are satisfied with your business will be more than willing to share your social media page with other people, which will allow you to reach out to many customers.
When a customer shares your product or brand with friends of his or hers, it gives your business a good reputation and makes the people who the brand have been shared with feel comfortable about using your brand. This is great for you, as an advertisement doesn’t really give your business or brand a reputation at all, even though it does make a customer interested in researching about your brand. By building a reputation with your customers and new potential customers, you will be able to gain new customers and begin increasing your revenue by a very large amount.
This article will cover the basics of the best social media applications that you can use, and will list reasons for the success that others have had while using these social media applications.
1. Facebook – www.Facebook.com
Perhaps the largest and most widely used social media platform that you can possibly be a part of is Facebook. Facebook is a great resource to use, as you will be able to create a page for your brand that customers can view information on, as well as share with each other. Facebook also allows customers to give you feedback, and contact you personally in order to explain and questions or concerns that they may have about your brand. Facebook is completely free to use, and does offer advertising that your brand will be able to utilize for a small fee. Usually, this type of advertising is on a “pay per click” basis, meaning that any time a customer clicks on the advertisement; you pay a few cents to Facebook. This makes it easy for you to keep the cost low, and doesn’t require any type of monthly fee, which is great, since you only pay for the customers that are actually looking at the advertisement, and the other people who see the advertisement will not cost you any money.
Facebook is also great, because it only shows the advertisement to people who it thinks will be interested in your product. It does this by looking at posts and information about each individual who uses the social media platform, which gives you the opportunity to reach out to your potential customers, without annoying any customer who wouldn’t be interested in the products that you are selling.
2. Twitter – www.Twitter.com
Twitter is a great social media application, as it allows people to subscribe to your status updates. Twitter allows you to make posts, and many people have found great success by using Twitter, since people who are interested in your brand can get updates about new products, sales or other promotional deals that you are currently holding. Because you are able to regularly post to your subscribes, you are able to reach out to customers who have purchased from you in the past, which means you will get them interested in your brand once again and make more sales to the same customers. Twitter is completely free, and doesn’t take a subscription fee to keep open.
3. Tumblr www.Tumblr.com
Tumblr is interesting, and many businesses have not found great success with this, although some brands have gained many customers from this social media website. Tumblr is focused on allowing users to have complete freedom of posts (excluding any type of child pornography or illegal activity.) Because Tumblr is so open, many of the people who use it are an older crowd, meaning that you will not be attracting the attention of many children. This is perfect for some businesses aimed at an older audience, since they are going to be the ones who have the money to purchase your brand in the first place.
