Social Messages and Notifications

Friday is a great “take out the trash” day. And by this, I mean tying up loose ends, answering emails, and monitoring social media.

Take 300 seconds and reply to any unanswered message posts in Facebook. If you’ve been avoiding a message because it contains a complaint about your store, take the time to politely reply. We’re not always presented with the opportunity to have a conversation and rectify misconceptions. Be thankful you’re allowed to have a voice in the matter.

Next, head over to Twitter and look at your notifications. Are there any tweets to favorite or retweet? Do you have new followers you should follow back? Have you received any direct messages to which you should respond?

And finally, look at your Instagram account. Again, look to see if you have any followers you should follow back. And while you’re there, browse through and like some images. Hand ’em out like candy. They’re free. And we all want to be liked.
