Why Your CEO Needs to Jump on the Social Media Bandwagon

You may think I talk endlessly about social media… and you’re correct.  I don’t want to waste anyone’s time talking about unimportant topics. I believe social media is #1 in just about every aspect of marketing and customer service which is why I promote it so much. It’s great for your company to have a Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. But why does your CEO need to have personal accounts on those social media sites?

More Exposure: Every business aspires to have maximum exposure. For example, it’s great if you have a Twitter account for your company, but you need to have a separate, personal account as well, especially if you’re the CEO.

Personal Relationship: Everyone loves being able to connect personally with companies they do business with. By having a personal Twitter account, CEO’s can make the company more personal and give the business a face & personality.

Increase Your Organic Traffic: Social media is FREE and what is better than free? Nothing. Companies usually see a spike in organic traffic after an executive, especially a CEO join the social media bandwagon. I know we did.

Some don’t believe in social media the way I do—as a way of promoting your business and helping with reputation and customer service. Trust me, it works if it’s done properly. I gave a presentation to our CEO—he now has a Twitter, along with our President and our traffic and leads have increased significantly.
