Most business owners and professionals in Ireland simply do not have the time to take the courses that would be required for even just an introduction to the social media platforms. These courses can range from one day only to several weeks in lenght, and in any event there is a big learning curve that comes with them. For many business professional the simpler solution is to hire experts in this area – ie. social media companies. There are many operating throughout Ireland and online that offer social media services for Irish clientele.
Basically what the social media companies in Ireland will do for clients is setting up their platform in the social media sector of the client’s own choosing. They have many choices available to them, with Facebook being the most popular then followed by Twitter with a close following from LinkedIn. Added to the list are Pinterest as well as Instagram and Google plus. There are some that prefer YouTube as their social media platform, and most of the social media companies will also offer services in this area as well.
Once the platform itself has been designed and set up for the client, the work doesn’t end there, as there has to be constant material added to these platforms to be able to grow the fan base. Perhaps the easiest for posting in the quickest manner is Twitter and Facebook. Whereas LinkedIn can be a little bit of a longer process, although Google+ (which as of yet hasn’t gotten the following that the rest have) is quite easy as well. It will be up to the clients to determine whether they only want the social media companies to set up these platforms for them or whether they want to have them populate them with the content on a scheduled basis.
