Social Media at Floormaker
Floormaker joined the digital on-line revolution a few years
ago, but it feels like 20! Such is the advancement and pace of the digital
world; you miss one hour, you miss a new social media app!
Along with consistent updates and developments to our
website we also delve into the social media world. Much like our flooring,
social media channels can be very different and this is why we have invested
our time and effort into different ones. Each has their own specific audience
and benefits. It allows us to show, and you to see our flooring
news/tips/updates/products in an easy way. It also lets you share your views
with us – be they good or bad (please be gentle!)
In no particular order, well alphabetical actually – as we
don’t want each channel loyal followers giving us grief on why theirs isn’t
first! So without further ado, fanfare, hullaballoo (ok ok we’ll get on with
it) – our channels are Facebook, Google Plus, Houzz, Linked In, Pinterest & Twitter.
We have added Houzz & Linked In since our last
update on social media.
A delight of media – sound, visuals, articles, quotes are
all included in this infamous social media channel. We try and share useful
information, quality product photos and get discussions going. Our go to social
channel to let you know what’s going on. Ours and hopefully yours – one stop
shop for all things floormaker.
What? Where? How? Why? Are a selection of the questions the uninitiated
ask when talking about Google’s very own social network. Despite its unfamiliarity,
it’s one of the most popular - with the top 5 registered users . We love it! It
allows us to share articles and best of all delve into similar niche
communities to us. Providing innumerable amounts of inspiration, and we get to talk with like-minded people. If you haven’t indulged yet, the time is now. You
don’t know what you’re missing until you know!
Houzz & Pinterest
Houzz is a social media/website and online community about
architecture, interior design and decorating, landscape design and home
improvement. We like to post idea books to give you inspiration and themes on
what you can do with different flooring.
Similar to pinterest in some ways but vastly
different in others. It concentrates on the home décor niche, which is ours if
you haven’t noticed- whereas pinterest covers everything and anything, but we
like them too.
Pinterest is vastly different to the other social media
channels. It’s all about the visuals with a titbit of text to explain the
image. We love lots of images and we like to pin/share these with you. We like to add our own images too and it’s great to share any new products that we
release. Not all fanciful though, we do show some undesirables too, to warn
people of what not to do!
For inspirations and wow moments, get on board with us for
the best visual portfolios in the home décor world.
This is the more formal side to our business. Service with a
smile. If you’re in the flooring or home décor business then connecting with us
on this channel is a must. This is where we network and build relationships
with similar niches and businesses.
Last but certainly not the least of our social channels. If
anything Twitter is our most prominent. With peoples time-lines being
repopulated at 4 times an hour then we can put out a lot of useful information
without (heaven forbid) spamming anyone!
We chat to other flooring folk and a lot of interior
designers on here. Re-tweeting important and useful articles as well as funnily
commentating (we think so anyway) on current events and trends. We like to blabber on Twitter. If you’re into
that sort of thing then follow us, we promise we do produce some diamonds from
And that’s it from Floormaker and our social media update
this week. Try and connect with us on some of our channels if you haven’t
already. We look forward to hearing from you.
