We are seeing an increase in the trend where people are promoting their businesses on social media like Facebook, Twitter and stuff. They find it to be a spectacular way to reach out to a good chunk of population at a shorter pace. You can simply calculate the number of people seeing your work if you have more than 600 friends in your list. Your work will also be seen by people who are your friend’s friend to whom you perhaps do not know in person. However, they also get the chance to see your business and if needed will hire your services.
These social media sites also play a major role in the growth of the heavy equipment and construction industry. For instance, you work for a heavy equipment company and are given the role to sell machines. You can easily place your ad on LinkedIn or Facebook and check the number of people who are interested to know more about it. Unlike Facebook, LinkedIn is used by people for professional requirements only. So it makes more sense to have a LinkedIn account and post the ads of the machines that you have to with you sell. You can also use the logo of your company so that the prospective buyers know in advance with whom they are dealing with. That also gives them a sense of security that they are in right hands and there is not any scam involved.
Other than this, if you want to recruit any operator or engineer, you can put your requirement out there and that gets passed like fire in the wild. You will soon get messages from people who are looking for the job and that gets your job done without you having to pay a single cent for it. There are millions of LinkedIn accounts and getting someone suitable for the job will not be that difficult. You can also make use of the website to hire technicians, managers for various roles etc. It may soon happen that these social networking websites may overtake job search engines or the job search engines have to work in tandem with these websites.
Now if you already have an account that you exclusively use for your business needs, it is very important that you keep that account professional. Avoid uploading any casual snaps or pictures that you have taken in some party. Your business account is not meant to accommodate those kinds of pictures. You can make use of your personal account for that purpose. You should put pictures of some new construction equipment that your company has launched in the market or if you have some news that you can share it in advance, you can put that story in your account.
Never overstate yourself in any social media website that you use for your business. If people get to know that you have overstated or exaggerated things it will give the impression that you are there to cheat. Be true to the readers as they will be your prospective clients.
