How to win customers through social media:
Understanding the importance of using social media and knowing how to start up your social media strategy are two different things. In order to make social media work for you, you must do the following:
Understand your target audience
Not everyone on social media is going to be interested in your product or service. There will always be people who are not in your right target audience. This is why it is essential that the first thing you do is know who your target audience are and how you can reach them. Targeting people in your location or who might be interested in your offerings will help you better customize your targeting efforts to attract their attention and draw them in.
Promote relevant & unique content
One of the best ways to engage with your target audience is by writing and promoting good content to them. Moroever, your content should be interesting and should provide some tips, insights or other valuable information that will motivate them to follow you and know more about your business.

Use email marketing campaigns
Social media marketing is not just what you do on your social media channels. It is also about engaging your target audience wherever and whenever possible. This includes email marketing campaigns. So start using your website and social media presence to gather emails then use those emails to send out offers, discounts and to share your news with your audience.
Make feedback work for you
When you start being positively active on social media, your audience will start engaging with you. Furthermore, they will start giving you feedback about your products or services and sharing their opinion about what they like and dislike about them. It is essential that you use this feedback for your advantage. Also, never ignore feedback and make sure that you take the time to respond to comments and reviews.

Start off small
I know many business owners who think in terms of ‘bigger always is better‘. However, that is not always the case when trying to win customers through social media. Sometimes, starting small and taking baby steps can help you build a solid reputation and loyalty that will ensure long-term success. So start with a couple of social media channels then move on to other ones after you have a significant amount of active followers.
Use interactive content
Live videos are just one of the many examples of engaging content you can use to engage your audience. So research what your audience is interested in watching and create fun and creative interactive content to get them more interested in your business and its offerings.
