Social Media Posts - MKx

Social Media Posts – MKx for THM

Originally I made this for own internal purposes - still adjusting.

Why we post:

  • for notoriety
  • for awareness
  • for visibility - to confirm that we are alive and active
  • to attract new prospects / customers
  • to present the mirror / repost of our activity and, possibly, of our suppliers and customers in synergy
  • to be able to refer to those
  • to confirm to already existing partners – customers and suppliers – the decision to choose us as collaborators - after-sales marketing
  • to create or 'keep warm the realtion' with existing customers, potential customers, existing suppliers, potential suppliers, other interested and interesting parties
  • Social Media will act as a information back-up, a reserve for your website, to a reasonable degree – as if your site doesn't work. Information on it have to be reconstructed, as from reflections, from secondary, 'not official' sites and other materials: articles, excerpts, abstracts, TV shows, podcasts, images, reviews, testimonials, technical stuff aso

A supplier - manufacturer, who also became friend - was telling me how he was traumatized by the fact that on a Social Media account he was assaulted by comments that, obviously, came from two categories, from two directions: competition and people who had no no idea what it's alll about. So upset that he closed that account and never made an account on any Social Media again.
Writing the above reminded me of this episode and the fact that it can set, regulate at any time the degree and level of reader interaction with posts, articles and other materials, including disabling reader reactions of any kind.
On the other hand, from comments, even malicious ones, ideas can be born, solutions can appear.
What do you think?

What do we post?

  • THM's own novelties
  • posts of the manufacturer from the same social media network
  • news from the manufacturer's website
  • news from newsletters and briefing notes - what can be public. And interesting.
  • any move of ours @THM: deliveries, website, new products, fairs, other projects
  • miscellaneous related to the field – 1 (one) per day – different pages@SM interesting
  • links to articles or products on our own websites and videos/media on YouTube or similar

Hash tags - what's up to us, what's up to them, what's highlight:

#tehronmachines #ronastere #mkx #marketingextrem #<supplier name> #<product name> #<use name> #<advantage - what does it bring me> #<customer name - if OK to share>
