Social Media Management

 Being new to social media can be overwhelming.  I feel that one must develope some sort of system to manage your social media accounts.  Here is what i found that may be of use.  AD

5 top tips on how to manage your social media accounts


  1. Facebook is very image lead – post ‘just in’, ‘best sellers’, images of the shop, as well as what inspires you. Remember not to keep it too brand focused – show your personality. You can also upload videos.
  2. Engage with followers – ‘like’ their posts, say thank you for positive comments etc.
  3. Communicate business news such as new collections, launch dates, special events etc.
  4. Involve your fans with decisions – e.g window displays.
  5. Take inspiration from other facebook pages that you like and see how they engage with their audience.


  1. Remember a tweet is only 140 characters so keep it concise – to shorten links use https://bitly.com.
  2. Twitter runs a #ff (follow Friday) allowing you to recommend people to follow on a Friday! Get involved.
  3. Follow relevant people and when people follow you, acknowledge it by either tweeting them or #ff.
  4. Like with Facebook, involve your fans with decisions or tweet for advice. Eg. Tweet @houseandhome for a suggested lamp.
  5. Twitter is immediate dialogue so treat it that way – ‘just had our first Christmas decorations in #exciting #christmas

NB: Using # hastags on twitter can be for emphasising relevant words and is used as a search tool.
