Do you use social media to promote your brand? You should think about launching a social media marketing campaign to make your brand more accessible. If you need help with this new campaign, you should review the following article.

Learn more about your audience and their relation to social media. Some target groups are not likely to use social media at all while other audiences check social networks several times a day. You should launch a social media marketing campaign if you find that a significant portion of your customers use social media regularly.

Choose which social networks you will use for your campaign.

Facebook and other popular networks are a good choice if you have a very diverse audience. There are many other social networks that might be popular in the niche you are targeting. Use surveys to learn more about your customers’ habits and find which social networks they use.

Let your audience know about your new campaign by placing links to your social media profiles on your website. You can easily integrate social media in your other campaigns by sharing links to your profile or adding some sharing buttons to your updates so readers can share this content on a social network. Your social media marketing campaign will be successful if all your customers are aware of it.

Your customers should see this campaign as valuable. You can build value for your social media marketing campaign by offering discounts to your subscribers. Share a weekly update that contains a coupon code or some exclusive information about a new product or a promotional offer. You could also give a small immediate discount to the customers who subscribe to your social media updates while ordering one of your products.

Share quality content with your audience.

Your subscribers will stay interested in your campaign and will share your content with their friends if you post interesting and entertaining updates. Try sharing some pictures and videos to grab the attention of your subscribers. Share three or four weekly updates at times when your subscribers are likely to be online. Count how many subscribers react to your updates so you can create more content similar to the updates that generate a reaction from your audience.

Use social media to interact with your audience. You can learn a lot about your audience and put a human face on your brand thanks to social networks. You could for instance share some questions, polls or ask your subscribers to share an anecdote with you. Organize some contests and giveaways on social networks, for instance by asking your audience to tag you in a picture. You can also use social networks for customer service purposes by letting customers know they can send you questions and comments on this platform.

These different methods will help you develop a successful social media marketing campaign. You should apply these tips to launch your campaign and keep looking for ways to improve your strategies.

Only a few years ago search engine optimization tactics to elevate websites higher on search engine ranking results and attract Internet users to specific sites was based around some extremely dubious practices. These so called SEO ‘black hat’ tactics included articles that were spun, (that is the same article changed slightly and issued in many different versions, on many sites. Keyword filled articles and other tactics such as keywords that were in actual fact hidden in backgrounds. Other underhand tactics were widely employed.

The common thread was that this content did not add value to the Internet experience of those who were searching for content that added value to their professional and personal lives.

Google, as custodians of the most powerful and popular search engine took note of this and has released continuously updated versions of their algorithms (think of them as tiny robots that scour the Internet looking at content)that now punish these practices. The latest of these algorithms, called Panda (and the associated update, Penguin)have changed the playing field.

Today a company’s search engine ranking is determined by and large by the quality of its content. Creating engaging content on social media sites is part and parcel of what is today known as ‘content marketing.

This content can consist of video and images (in fact there are entire studies around what sort of content is best – a combination of types seems to be best) as well as copy.

Senior Google executive Matt Cutts has stated that the content provided must add value to the user experience, must be creative and unique and engaging. This means that content providers need to go that extra mile when they are developing the content that they showcase on social media sites, or the content on blogs and websites that host the content that is promoted by the organisation’s various social media channels.

Social media marketing can be tremendously powerful.

Sites like Twitter and Facebook have the ability to increase the reach of the organisation’s sales efforts, as well as the brand itself through the sharing of key messages and the promoting of the brand. A single Tweet can potentially reach thousands though retweets and the reach of extended networks. Many of the other social networks operate in the same way through likes and +1’s, in effect the impact is the same.

The advantages of using the social media are relative cost effectiveness over traditional marketing platforms. However care now needs to be taken to ensure that marketing efforts create value, rather than concentrate on keyword promotion.

Without paying attention to the creation of rich content which is now required by Google the company runs the risk of not taking advantage of the power of the social media.

If the organisation insists on maintaining a reliance on SEO (articles should now contain around 3 – 4% SEO keywords) they run a very real risk of being delisted (or banned) from the search engine ranking. That would spell doom for those companies that are relying heavily on the power and reach of the Internet in order to feed sales funnels.

Next to video, it is making waves and almost everybody is rushing to get involved. Whether you have already embraced it or not, you will do well to understand the opportunities and potential involved with a solid social media campaign.

Exposure

For the start-up business, whether online or offline, social media is an incredible chance to get valuable exposure for your business. Given how competitive and expensive other campaigns, such as paid advertising can be, a chance to get free exposure to potentially thousands of people is not one to easily dismiss.

A successful social media campaign during the early stages a a new business’s life can make the difference between success and failure.

One thing to be careful of is not going too far and “over exposing”. In other words, don’t spam so much that your product, service, or business is disregarded and not taken seriously. Getting it right is a delicate balance.

There is already a lot of *noise* on the social media scene, don’t add to it.

Interaction

Lady laptop27 funnel smartmockups

Another unique aspect of social media is the ability to interact on a person level with your customers. Everybody has a mobile and your app or social media accounts let you get right in their pocket. This should not be underestimated.

Too many businesses turn their mobile app or social media campaigns into miniature versions of their .com or offline campaigns. A mobile app (or social account) is a separate entity and should be treated as such.

There are many unique features, and different ways to organize your app that will encourage more interaction and personal engagement. This is key to social media.

Engagement

There is a massive amount of engagement within the social media world. Some of it is just token gestures though.

 

Many apps, websites, and social accounts have cottoned on to the idea that getting more social “shares” results in better rankings, increased popularity, and definitely more attractiveness.

Keeping up appearances is important and something that even the most established of brands cannot fail to embrace.

You’ve probably noticed now how almost everyone is asking for “likes”, “shares” and comments, sometimes even in exchange for prizes. While this may appear cheap to some, it is starting to appear that the ones who successfully employ these strategies do end up reaping more benefits later on.

Engagement is not just about chasing “likes” though. There is much more to it than that.

By keeping engaged with your audience, you can achieve many things:

1. Keep them updated of latest news and events in your business.

2. Let them understand your business more.

3. Understand them more (vitally important)

4. Keep them interested.

5. Increase your opportunities to turn them into customers.

All of the above are the core principles of successful business, and are very much achievable within the social media world.

Final Thoughts

Social media marketing is growing rapidly and is not a fleeting fad. Over the next few years, while many new social platforms will rise and fall, the fact will remain that social media will dominate the online and offline worlds. If businesses do not embrace and engage with these worlds, they risk being left behind.

It’s easy to realize the importance of social media marketing today, when everybody and their mother are on Facebook or Twitter. Every business owner agrees that social media is awesome for gathering leads and gaining credibility and awareness. The hardest part, though, is to reach those people with a message so vibrant that they will want to share instantly with their peers.

The biggest challenge of social media marketing is to develop pieces of communication that have the potential of becoming viral. This is why big companies pay special attention to their social media presence. They hire specialists to handle their profile on social media networks. They choose the best writers and art directors to tailor their messages for those people who belong to the core target group.

Analysis is important. Each campaign brings a new opportunity of seeing what worked and what didn’t.

Social media marketing is sometimes a trial and error process. Only by determining what you did well and by repeating it will you manage to build scalable campaigns and make the number of fans skyrocket.

Build your custom Audience

Build your custom Audience

Being inexpensive, advertising on social media channels is very tempting for many businesses, even for those who don’t have big advertising and marketing budgets. Nonetheless, it is very important to select very carefully the ads you’re going to show to your public. The audience is not stupid. They will realize you paid to have them see your words, so you need to make sure they are damn good, if you want to get results. The result in this case is the desire to share. This is what you want to awaken in your followers’ eyes: a sparkle that makes them click Like and click Share or maybe send your ad via email to their friends.

You don’t have to fake it till you make it. In social media, it is important to be genuine. Your product must have something that resonates with your consumers’ mind. Find that little something, bring it to the light, dress it in appealing words and images and let it fly free in the virtual world.

One of the social media marketing goals should be to build relationships.

This is what social media is about, in the first place. People are there to interact with each other. They want to share their beliefs, their opinions and the things they love or hate. You want to be the thing they love so much that they can’t refrain from sharing. You want to be their partner and their friend, to support them when they are down and to enjoy their victories together.

This is not an easy task. It requires a big deal of time and attention. If you can’t make a proper effort into the direction of getting closer to your fans, you may lose the battle even before you start it. Try to spot the leaders in your community and get closer to them. Leaders are good, because once convinced they like you, they are going to be your spokespersons without any doubt and they will bring you even more followers.

To your success.

Only recently has social marketing become a crucial component to the advertising and marketing world. Unlike the traditional marketing tools of yesterday, where a company simply presents their messages, or pushes their products on consumers, social marketing is used to engage potential customers through two-way communication.

Any company that is new to the social media marketing world needs to understand the very basic principles of online promotions and advertising before ever developing a successful campaign using Twitter, Facebook, and blogging sites.

Becoming Engaged with Followers

Using any type of online medium is much different than traditional advertising, such as print ads. Before, television commercials, radio announcements, and even newspapers and magazine simply presented pertinent information about what the company was selling. However, social media marketing is more than just self-promotion.

It requires the necessary time to answer questions directly from potential and existing customers, and leave intriguing links and comments on their blogs, and allow them to leave them on your company’s sites.

Social media marketing tools offers your company the unique opportunity to gain insight on all potential and existing customers in a one-on-one basis by creating an effective dialogue with each one of them.

Become engaged with the reader that is leaving a negative comment or feedback, and have an open exchange across your social platforms.
