Using Social Media To Promote Your Company
You probably know that social media is one of the largest ways companies are now advertising online. However, not all social media promotion is created equally. There are some great tips and tricks of the social media trade that will help you have more successful posts- whether they be on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest or something else. Without further ado, Adrenaline Broadcasting lists the five major rules of successful social media marketing:
It is important that your company consistently publishes content and participates in conversations. Online followers can be fickle and they won’t hesitate to replace you if you disappear for weeks or months; there are always competitors ready to take your place.
You’re never supposed to ignore someone and the same principle still stands with online communication. Building relationships is one of the most important parts of social media marketing success, so always acknowledge every person who reaches out to you, whether that entails responding to praise or addressing concerns customers have about your products or services.
Finding the big fish in the sea:
It’s key to locate online influencers in your market who have quality audiences and are likely to be interested in your products, services and business. Connecting with those people and working to build relationships with them can be incredibly beneficial, as you are then able to tap into pre-existing audiences.
No one will share your content if you don’t first, and consistently, do the same. A portion of the time you spend on social media should be focused on sharing and talking about content published by others, rather than what you have generated yourself.
Publishing a completed post on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest or somewhere else isn’t the last step of the social media marketing process. Analytics are an incredibly helpful tool that allow you to view the success of your current social media postings and analyze ways to further refine and define your target audience as well as create SEO friendly, viral content. There are a variety of ways you can use analytics to measure social media marketing. The main way is through the analytics settings in the individual social media apps. Facebook, for instance, has very extensive analytics settings that allow you to view your post’s reach, target audience, and engagement. As well, it shows you the success of the overall page over time. Other social media forums like Twitter and Instagram also have analytics settings, but none are quite as extensive or beneficial for reports as Facebook. Furthermore, tracking and using analytics offered via various social networks allows social media managers to be better at their job. It allows for experimentation based on a proven set of variables. Doors will continue to open via social media if you are responsive to the needs and desires as expressed by the online community.
