In our previous article post, this social media advertising agency began presenting some of the small changes the modern business – big or small – can make to their marketing strategy; changes that have proven time and again to bring about really positive and far-reaching differences measurable in website traffic, lead conversion rates and annual sales! In this, the second installment of a three-part series, this social media advertising agency shall continue to explore some important philosophies that enterprises should integrate into their approach to business and into their interaction with their target audience.
3. Recognize Your Audience and the Importance They Play in Your Success
The key to online success lies in the building of relationships with your fans, followers and friends, says this social media advertising agency. By establishing positive relationships with these people – your target market – they will go on to do invaluable marketing for your business by talking about you, recommending you and defending you against negative exposure. The very best way to do this is to engage!
Think about this: If you went to a business function and some hot-shot in the industry you work in tried to strike up a conversation with you, would you ignore him or her? Of course not! The whole point of networking, says this social media advertising agency, is to engage in conversation, which hopefully ends up in some kind of promotion! Ignoring the people who take the time to comment or contribute on your social media is not going to cultivate a positive relationship. Take time to respond to people’s comments; interact with your audience and acknowledge their efforts to communicate with you. If you simply don’t have the time to do this yourself as a business owner, then hire someone who understands your brand identity and who will represent it well, says this social media advertising agency.
4. Like Baking a Cake, Combine Your Marketing Efforts, Says the Social Media Advertising Agency
Flour, oil, water, eggs, baking powder and sugar are nothing special on their own, but together, they can create something delicious and generally associated with some kind of celebration! Similar to the concept of baking a cake, you should view your marketing campaign as a combination of strategies rather than several discrete and isolated strategies, says this social media advertising agency. Integrate your efforts and cross-promote them in order to send out a consistent message to your target audience. For example, use your various social media profiles to promote each other. Use www.twitterfeed.com to update your blog on Facebook and Twitter and include ‘Follow Me’ buttons to this blog on your profile pages with other social media platforms. Always use your printed ads and newsletters to provide additional channels to your social media profiles and blog, says this social media advertising agency. Basically, you should immerse your audience in your brand name and identity and provide them with a million different routes to your social media profiles!
