How to Engage Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Consumers Using Social Media

How to Engage Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Consumers Using Social Media | LGBT Online Media, Marketing and Advertising | Scoop.it

Social media is not only used for marketing purposes by large corporations and small businesses, but individuals use social media to socialize and express themselves. Brands that create a one-size-fits-all social media strategy miss out on opportunities to engage consumers on a personal level.  When developing a social media strategy, brands need to consider gender, ethnicity, age, culture and, yes, even the sexual orientation, of the brand’s target market.

...Even agents tweet, though the effort can backfire, as it did in 2011 with Todd Reynolds, who got in a flap over negative comments he made about New York Rangers forward Sean Avery’s advocacy work for same-sex marriage.
