Social Marketing Strategies for Your Business
While you can certainly initiate a social marketing campaign for your business on your own, you will likely have a more favorable response if you engage an experience marketing consultant. Using social media for business promotion is more than simply posting on Facebook or Twitter.
There are several steps that should be followed to ensure that you are making full use of the incredible power of social media:
- Examine your target audience by looking at their demographics and understanding their culture, motivation and beliefs.
- Determine how you will evaluate your social media campaign to determine what may need to be changed and how effective different strategies are.
- Identify the marketing techniques that will offer the most success with your target audience. It may include traditional marketing like radio and TV ads, as well as online avenues like social media and blogs.
- Decide what the long and short-term benefits will be for using social media.
- What obstacles may prevent consumers from taking advantage of your campaign?
- Consider the message you want to convey. It is important to be clear and design the style and tone of the message directly to your audience.
- Test your campaign on focus groups to see how they respond.
- Collect information about your campaign to decide if it is effective and to what degree.
- Adjust your campaign as needed. Refining is all part of the process.
- Complete an evaluation of the social media campaign.
