Social media is accessible to anyone, including potential clients and customers. When a business’s social media accounts are not monitored, they have the potential to steer customers away. Some examples of content that could have an effect on your profitability include negativity, offensive content, untrustworthy content, or just plain boring, non-engaging content. This goes for both business accounts and your employee’s social media. Your employees are the face of your business and you want to be sure that they shed light on your company in a positive way. If you need help with social media due diligence, reach out to Advanced Investigations today to get your company back on track for profitability and productivity.
What is social media due diligence?
Social media due diligence has two categories: a business’s social media presence and the employee’s content that reflects the business. Due diligence is investigating both social media categories and making sure that the posts that are shared reflect the business in a positive light. A strong online presence can be the difference between peak profitability and falling flat. This is why it is so important to monitor social media activity that can have an effect on the company’s profitability.
What is the social media due diligence process looking for?
There are certain types of behavior that investigators will look for when conducting social media due diligence, many of which are inappropriate or negative online behavior. Investigators will keep an eye out for the following behaviors and red flags:
- Posts that harm another’s reputation
- Sloppy content
- Grammatically incorrect content
- Lack of follower engagement
- Low numbers of followers
- Irrelevant content
- Lack of content geared toward target audiences
- Poor engagement with the target audience
- Content that portrays a lack of good judgment/professionalism
- Inappropriate photos or posts
- Content that undermines the brand’s credibility
- Content that makes your brand seem unreliable or untrustworthy
Can social media due diligence affect my business?
Keeping a close eye on a business’s social media platforms of both business-owned accounts and employees’ accounts can maximize your profitability and productivity. Without social media due diligence, you risk sending a negative message to potential clients or employees due to red flags slipping through the cracks. This is especially true if your business is involved in any legal troubles, social media will almost always be brought up in a courtroom setting. Hiring a private investigator to thoroughly examine your business’s online presence will eliminate the worry of negative content on the web that you may be unaware of.
