Social media is something that has been consistently changing in our world. It continues to grow and evolve, making it easier for businesses to get themselves in the eyes of the public more than they ever could before. Having your business use social media is so much more than just posting a picture of your new wine list or your weekly specials. It is about connecting with your audience and creating a relationship with them. It is also about getting the chance to tell your story and humanize your brand.
Doesn't it make you feel special when people appreciate your feedback or are there for you when you have a problem? That feeling is the exact reason why it's so important for businesses to engage with their audience. Every person who visits your winery, restaurant, etc. has an opinion on their experience, whether they choose to make it public or not. Whether it's a positive or negative comment, responding to them will make them feel appreciated because you are either thankful for their feedback or you are willing to make their experience better. This is how we create relationships with our audience and it is how we build trust with them. If your audience doesn't have trust in your brand and what you do, it is hard to establish a good foundation with them.
Giving your brand a voice is so important, too. Social media gives you the opportunity to tell your story and humanize your brand by putting faces behind what you do. Your audience loves to be able to put a face to a company because it makes them feel connected to your brand. It is a great way to grow your audience and be able to share your values and tell your story.
Using social media has so many positive outcomes to it. At the end of the day, you want to grow your business and audience, right? Social media is the perfect tool to do so and it's free to use! We would love to hear some of other reasons why using social media in the food and beverage industry is so important.
