5 common mistakes when you're new on Corporate Social Media

5 common mistakes when you're new on Corporate Social Media
By: Oscar Farfán

We all love to gather with friends in boths ways, offline and online. Do i have to communicate the same way to my brands' stakeholders?

Companies have much to tell to the world. Build your brand reputation online is not an easy task and you'll need to keep in mind some basics before trying to open the first brand's profile online, no matter what social media network you want to use.

1. Share what you like related to the business sector and think others may love it!

Social media is about being spontaneous. Is you see something an find it interesting after reading/watching it, share it! others can learn and will be grateful with you!

2. Don't auto-like!

Common mistake. You should be asking yourself "what's wrong with that?" well, if you have ever been around the hashtag #ForeverAlone that's exactly what you're showing about your brand.

3. Never use a personal profile as a company profile

There are many interesting features on company profiles that personal ones don't have such as analytic tools and the possibility to assign roles on your team. The results will improve if you leave fear behind and know them. Best of all: most social networks do offer free basic analytics.

4. Talk to them as you want to be approached in real life

Alway remember to build friendships to last. 100 good followers will be happy to defend your brand in case of trolls trying to make you reach your boiling point. 
Thank them for their likes and follows, know them asking questions to what they commented about your content, highlight their best comments about the topics you're working on. Yes, just like friends!

5. It's better to work properly on one profile that badly on 5 or more

Choose wisely what social media networks your business needs. Some people think it must have al least a Facebook fanpage but think where your audience is before deciding  where to go.

Are you already involved in social media and want to share more tips for beginners? we'd love to hear from you!

| ENTREVISTA | Conociendo más de la tingua moteada que habita en nuestras fincas floricultoras

La “tingua moteada" es una subespecie endémica de la Cordillera Oriental colombiana registrada en los departamentos de Cundinamarca y Boyacá. Se considera en peligro de extinción (EN) debido a diversas amenazas en sus hábitats naturales. A partir del proyecto Las Aves de las flores de Asocolflores, se identificó su presencia en las fincas floricultoras de la Sabana de Bogotá que cuentan con reservorios artificiales de agua lluvia, proporcionando allí los espejos de agua y algunas coberturas vegetales acuáticas que le sirven a esta ave para alimentarse y sobrevivir.

Why is it important for Florverde to be part of the Floriculture Sustainability Initiative basket of standards?

The Floriculture Sustainability Initiative (FSI) is a multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together members of the international floriculture supply-chain. FSI members collaborate to improve practices and drive positive change towards the sustainable production and trade of flowers and plants.

A total of 14 international voluntary sustainable standards and schemes make up the FSI Basket. They are fully transparent, comparable and by way of independent benchmarking, comply with basic social and/or environmental requirements.

As explained by Florverde® Sustainable Flowers director, Ximena Franco:

“FSI is an international initiative pursuing the goal that by 2020, 90% of flowers produced and traded are certified as sustainable. For this to happen, FSI has convened different certification schemes that have international accreditation under ISO 17065, to comprise a basket of standards. Florverde® is part of this FSI basket of standards.”
