Feeling Social?

Social Media can be a great tool for business and provide a lot of opportunities to grow your business.

Building brand awareness, lead generation and attracting new customers can all happen on social media.

 

Reasons for using social media

One of the first things you should ask yourself is; why do I want to use social media for my business?

Defining the reasons and setting goals for your social media is a great way to start. There are a lot of different considerations that can be made.

Social Media Platforms

The next thing you want to look into is what social media channels you should use for your business.

You might be thinking that just using all the different channels is going to work great for your social presence. Because the more visible you are the better right? Unfortunately, this is often not the case. It is best to find out what social platform best fits your business needs and stick to that.

Depending on the capacity your business has you might only want to stick to one or two social media platforms and do them well.

It can take a lot of time to build content for these social media channels, we believe that quality over quantity applies here.

 

Conclusion

Regardless of which platform you choose, they all require ongoing management. Simply having a page or profile is not enough to harness the awesome marketing potential of these platforms. Users have also come to expect prompt responses from their interactions, so unanswered queries can negatively impact your reputation.

If you are concerned about your capacity to manage a social media account – you aren’t alone. In-fact, in most big organisations the management of social media is a role within itself nowadays. It will take time to monitor and create content for each platform you’re on, so if you already feel time-poor make sure you focus your energy where it counts. Pick the key platform to begin with and grow from there.

  • To make your socials more manageable and engaging, consider outsourcing some of the responsibilities.
  • Digital Marketing Specialists can assist in building plans and strategies to connect with your target market
  • Photographers & Graphic Designers can assist with creating engaging visual content
  • Depending on your platform, enlisting a Digital Copywriter can also help in building a professional and consistent profile.
  • If warranted, considerer employing a Social Media Manager to handle the day-to-day maintenance of your platform.

Social media’s constantly evolving, so it’s important to stay in the loop.

With new tools and advertising methods always popping up, keeping yourself informed about developments in your social platforms will mean you’re choosing the most effective methods available to market your business. Remember that the statistics are always changing too – keeping an eye on these can provide invaluable insights into the social habits of your target market, where to find them and how to best engage.

To begin with, social media can be a tad overwhelming, but as with any new skill, it becomes easier with practice. If you’re not sure where to start, engage a Digital Marketing Specialist to help you define your best platform and establish a marketing strategy moving forward.
