• Take your existing website as a guideline for the design. Strong recognition is important for your company’s appearance.
• Profile picture: What the people will see most often is your profile picture. Either on Facebook, Twitter or Google+. People go to their newsfeeds more often than to your profile. So your little profile picture should tell them who there are dealing with. It should be either your company logo or a picture of yourself, if you are the business owner and well-known.
• Twitter: Play with the twitter website elements and show who you are in a few pictures and words and include your contact details. It’s not just the background image that is important! The colours of the text, links and sidebars also reflect your design.
• Facebook: Ask yourself the following questions. Do you use apps? Is your Facebook fanpage just a copy of your website? If so, you could definitely be getting more from Facebook!
• High recognition is important but people don’t want to have the same content and pictures over and over again. Give them new exclusive content and change your design fit the small space that Facebook gives you to to display your content.
• Ask yourself these questions: How would you like to present yourself there?
• What impression would you like to create with your design?
• What should customers see on the first page so that they will “like” you?
By showing people that you are serious about your brand, not only through your website but also using Social Media, you are more likely to achieve trust. Keep that trust and you are more likely to gain more fans, followers, people in your circles. Gain more fans and you have a larger community to engage with. And this is what it is all about, because loyal customers are the best customers.
