DeskAlerts has begun the New Year with a bang, publishing its eight social media rules for businesses ahead of what it expects to be an exceptionally busy 2014.
The corporate messaging tool is urging all corporations large and small to familiarize themselves with its social media best practice guidelines, which it has condensed down into a handful of accessible, easy to implement and easy to follow rules to live by. Its eight mantras have been split into dos and don’ts, so clients will find it easier than ever to ensure their messages are on point, effective and engaging.
The first of the four dos on the list is to publish content that the network will share. This is followed by do communicate regularly, do hear what the network is telling your brand and do make it a priority to build a strong network. The four faux pas are don’t be pushy, don’t spam social sites, don’t rely on one social tool and don’t forget to thank people.
After a jam-packed twelve months filled with insightful research projects and product development announcements, the web-based messaging service for businesses is well-placed to extol the benefits of social media and the right and wrong way to leverage the medium. Many of its most recent studies and service additions have been social media based, including the option for users to push their messages via social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter and the motivational and HR benefits of retaining corporate social media profiles.
Anton Vdovin, Project Manager at DeskAlerts said, “DeskAlerts is one of the most advanced and most used corporate messaging solutions in the world which means that we’re incredibly conscious of social media, its applications and uses. We feel that it is increasingly an important – even essential – part of corporate communications and as such, it’s a key medium to get right. Social media is very easy to get wrong too and one of the most common mistakes we see is clients relying solely on one community outlet such as focusing exclusively on Facebook or only setting up Twitter. We hope our dos and don’ts for the year will help clients and others to sidestep these pitfalls and use their social media accounts in bigger and better ways over the next 12 months.”
