Even small businesses are getting into putting their businesses forward via social media. F4mmedia can help in a few ways. With all of this you need to have the right message, the right content going out on the right channels at the right times. This means having a suitable tagline or slogan. Then back it up with the right expanded message. Also add the right illustration or video or audio. Set the statement, the message in the right background and deliver it to the right people when and where they will notice it.

It is all a case of making things fit along with being informative, or a little entertaining, perhaps even adding a hint of a wow! We try to add illustration, for instance, that ranges from a plain display of what is offered, sometimes an image or three that adds to the whole of the brand, background or landscape, sometimes adding a more theatrical setting for all that is said. Sometimes it is a case of employing real art, adding imagery to a stream of words that gently or forcefully makes people think – taking them somewhere different. All of this, with the copy, the text message as a whole, tells a story – it may be a case of telling the same story once more, with a different twist, sometimes extending the whole brand story with a completely new chapter. It is delivered in the right way, we look for the best channel possible – you don’t hope to read a book in the cinema, do you? You don’t expect to eat chinese food in a pizza house. So, when looking for B2B contacts you look rather more in LinkedIn rather than Snapchat, when you are looking to sell goods locally particular Facebook groups have real use for you.

Twitter is one of the “older” social networks. Still, I often have the impression, that especially with young entrepreneurs and small businesses, Twitter is also one of the most undervalued networks.

Social media, marketing and design

Having a social media presence is a must even for most small businesses. It gives you, the business person, the opportunity to keep your customers and potential clients informed and, if you are good at it all, entertained as well. Depending on the channel you can engage in a chat here and there with your customers – existing or hoped for. With some channels it is all about the content.
