Social Media Marketing

WE ARE SOCIAL… ARE YOU?

Social Media Marketing is a way of getting traffic to your website via marketing activities in social media sites such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and other social platforms. Social media marketing (SMM) utilizes these social networking websites as a marketing tool. The goal of SMM is to produce content that users will share with their social network to help a company increase brand exposure and broaden their customer reach.
There are many smaller businesses who purely use social media platforms to promote and market their businesses. You don’t always need a website but for the majority of SME’s (small to medium enterprise) and of course the big globals – it is crucial to have a well designed website.

Currently the most powerful social media platform is Facebook, followed by Linkedin, Twitter and Blogging..

THE BENEFITS

  • Drive traffic to your website & increase sales
  • Increase brand exposure
  • Increase your website ranking and position on google and other search engines
  • Showcase your product and service offering 7 days a week
  • Your content can be shared via a person (electronic word of mouth) as opposed to via the company itself if it resonates with them, therefore appearing to be more trusted – this is the best from of free advertising (however you usually need to pay to get that content out to those people in the first instance)
  • It is an easy way to learn about your customers – what they do and don’t want
  • It is a great way to target particular demographics eg men aged between 24-34 living in Bondi (and surrounds)
  • It is a great tool to expand your audience and grow your business
  • It allows instant feedback – whilst this can sometimes be negative, it gives you an option to respond and set the record straight. Or admit you made a mistake..
  • Remarketing is a great way to further engage customers and create brand awareness via facebook remarketing

THE PITFALLS

  • You can waste hours of time and effort and money if you do not have a clear strategy in place first!
  • Choose one or two platforms and focus your efforts on them – you cant be across everything
  • There is no quick fix in social media – you need to be consistent and stick to your plan
  • Don’t just follow everyone else and regurgitate the same old content – whilst it can be good content in some cases, you need to have your own unique content
  • Don’t just sell sell sell in social media. Provide useful information, be the expert in your field, engage with your customers, be likeable.
  • Be wary of outsourcing your social media role to someone overseas – do they really know your customers, your market and you?
  • Make sure you respond to enquiry in social media
