Should You Have A Separate Social Media Page For Your Business?

Should You Have A Separate Social Media Page For Your Business

The idea of creating and maintaining a whole new set of social media accounts for your business in addition to your personal ones can be daunting.

However, there are a lot of advantages to creating a separate social media presence for your business and yourself.

If the workload is too much, it may be time to hire a social media manager, but maintaining at least a few separate social media accounts is a good idea.

Specific Client Base

When you use your personal accounts for your business, you are probably reaching a lot of people that you are not targeting and few people that you are.

Your personal friends, while likely supportive of your business, may not be customers of it. A separate social media account for your business allows you to focus exclusively on the circles you are trying to reach.

In addition, on some social media sites like Facebook, it is easy for one user to share another’s post.

If there are certain promotions you think your friends would be interested in, you can always share the post from your personal account as well so that you

do not lose any potential business, while also not harassing uninterested friends with business information.

Freedom on Your Personal Account

You may have had some of your social media accounts for a long time, meaning you have posts from years ago that are still visible on your profiles.

If you start using your personal account for business, you may have to go through and censor these posts for political messages or inappropriate photos.

If you create a separate account for your business, then you can manage all of your business contacts there and keep your personal account private.

This allows you to post pictures from a night out or support a political candidate without it affecting your business.

Reasons Not to Separate

If your business would benefit from being associated with your face and lifestyle, then using just your personal profile can be useful.

If you, as a person, are part of the brand that you are selling, then merging social media accounts can be extremely useful. This tends to happen more with services than products, but can occur in either scenario.

This comes with the added bonus of not having to manage, or hire someone to manage, two separate accounts.
