Social media in the construction industry and built environment is a divisive subject. Some love it. Some hate it. But whatever your personal views, the hard facts show that your customers and stakeholders are using social media to get their news, research answers to their questions, share stuff they love, and pass judgement on customer service.
We can see this in all areas, age groups, trades and professions, businesses and consumers.
Construction social media with clear intent
Managing social media is now a critical part of managing corporate reputation in construction. It also amplifies engagement and helps to drive traffic to your website, the core of all your marketing and communications.
But social media is also a time thief. And it can just become yet more noise in an already noisy world, with little impact on your objectives unless it is used with skill, clear intent, strategic insight and a firm focus on measurement and evaluation.
