What sort of iPhone 5C color should you get?

Choose a color and see whether each description matches your personality.

White: You are a reckless anarchist with no respect for anything or anyone. Why get a new iPhone 5c in the one color that makes it appear, at first glance, identical to stupid old iPhones? Why bother owning a  phone? Why bother owning anything? Why bother? Why?

Red:  You are curious and ambitious. The 16th of the month is a good day to have that frank conversation about money with a friend or boss.

Yellow: You have already purchased black striped stickers and an “antennae” USB plug-in and have big       plans to dress your phone up as a bumblebee. This is adorable and we highly encourage it. 

Green: You are color blind. You’ll just take whatever phone is easiest for the cashier to grab from the back.

3 Things That Must Be Cleared With a Social Media Outsourcing Company

You have to be living under a rock if you still don’t realize how important social media is in promoting a business today. It has certainly progressed from being a merely fun pastime and a way to keep up with gossip and other things, into an essential tool for business marketing and product promotion. Having social media accounts is now a necessity for any business that hopes to capture a loyal, local market.

The problem is, investing time in this for your business is very demanding in terms of time and human
resources. It may sound like a simple thing to do, but it’s actually a lot of work. Social media outsourcing is your number one option to solve this problem.

Just like with any outsourced processes and jobs though, it is important to lay down all the cards and make important things clear to both parties. As clients, you have the privilege to tell your service provider what you want to accomplish and which methods you wish to use. Use that chance to establish the rules and points of agreement between you and your chosen service provider.

1. Outline the tasks you want your social media outsourcing company to do.

You can cut back the number of hours you spend on SMO by 90% if you turn over the bulk of the work to a third-party service provider. Let your social media outsourcing team work on finding images, videos, blogs and articles related to your business, and then have them posted on Facebook or Twitter. Give them the task of managing your multiple accounts, accepting friend requests, sending out invites, doing outreach (with customers, interested visitors, and industry peers that can help your business gain more audiences) and coming up with posts that are catchy and have the potential to go viral.

2. Declare your budget and let it be known that it isn’t flexible.

Tell your outsourcing company how much you are willing and able to spend. We’re talking about the longevity and scope of the service. Yes, there will be fees drafted beforehand by the social media outsourcing company, but that can increase over time. By letting them know your budget, they can come up with a work schedule that will to match that price. 

3. Establish SOP’s and parameters for the posts.

One of the things skeptics have against outsourcing social media management is an outsider will practically represent and speak for your business. One wrong statement in social media can demolish months of marketing work. That’s why it is very important that you establish SOP’s regarding posts. For instance, you can allow them to make generic posts, like comments about viral videos and events. However, they should not respond to negative comments from displeased customers and just leave that to you. Also tell your outsourced social media managers what attitude and tone of voice they should adopt when interacting with customers and visitors to your wall.

It will be unwise to just let your social media outsourcing team do their work with minimum supervision or without any cardinal rules. Vague and unclear instructions increase the possibility of committing gaffes in conversations and posts. Always remember that small mistakes in relations can bring down the biggest companies. Don’t let that happen to your business and make these three matters clear with your outsourcing company.
