Social Media Success Case Study: Web Design Startup

November 8th, 2009 by chris Leave a reply »

Everyone talks about how it’s possible to build an online business using social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.  Yeah, you’ve heard this stuff before.  But before you click the “back” button and go back to Google to find something else, have a look at a well-written post at inspiredm web design blog about a company that actually used these tools to build a successful business online.

This social media case study differs from most because it actually details how the business owners used different platforms instead of just saying, “Oh it’s easy to start a business online, just get on Twitter!”

On the contrary, this piece is all about how much effort it takes to build a business using social media, which is really the key.

    I’m really interested in getting a social media buzz out about my web design business. What do you think is a good way to start? I read all the time about how other companies do it, but nothing seems to be a good fit.

    Buddy –

    I think the key to creating a social media presence is finding out what works in your particular instance. You can read about all the other companies and how they do it, but the best thing for you to do is to try different tactics. And you have to be honest with yourself. How can you provide value to other people on a social level? Will it be helpful, valuable, and interesting to other people if you film a video every week and talk about hot issues in your industry? Is blogging about your industry better suited to you? Think about what you have to offer and maybe it will be more clear how to proceed.
