Always target audience
Remember that there are several users in social media and they make up of several people who have different interests. It would work out well if you know how your content runs in a particular order of business holders. For example, if you’re an insurance company, it’d be good if you cut out to your audience interest. Remember that sharing stuff like too much insurance-ish content might be too boring. So you have to think of an alternative way to introduce your service without hiding the real deal. You can make a video about it and upload it in which is pretty effective especially users really like to watch clips.
Do not be comfortable to stay inside your own box.

You can even respond to messages in there as well! Just make sure you know how to maneuver all through it so it would be much easier for you.
Make sure to update your status and make sure you have personality!

Too much formality though can ruin the whole idea; and it becomes uninteresting. So whenever you need to update your status, make sure that
Create A Personality
Being boring and dull on social media is a good way to fail. Unfortunately, since a lot of B2B companies treat social media as an afterthought, their posts lack personality and a human touch. But do not let it all out – like a troll that every social media users hate! They’ll take every post offensive. Just be more conversational because this makes your company entertaining and easy to approach by other businesses.
Lastly, put those that are worthy to take charge.
Most B2B operators or companies that are working around this case loses touch with what they are really aiming in their social media connection. This is because they also have things to do in their real work or business.

Make sure you use some of your staff to do just that but take note, make some time to observe the people you’re entrusting this job with. By your jurisdiction, you’d be much assured of what or who you give this responsibility too without any problems in the future.
There are plenty of stuff you can do when maintaining your social media. But it’d be best to take note of these basic things before you put it much further. You know what some say, effort is equals to success.
