5 Ways to Improve Social Media Marketing
What is Social Media Marketing?
Social media marketing is creating content with the intent to promote the product or business online. This can be done on any social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or LinkedIn.
Goals and Choosing a Platform:
To be successful, you must have a long-term goal. Where would you like your company to be in 5 years? 10 years? Having a long-term goal will change over time and shouldn’t be something you stick to for dear life. To start pick a social media channel depending on what your goals are. Different channels have different cultures and you want to display your content to the right people. It might be tricky to understand what cultures are for which platform so doing some research beforehand might be useful. It is said that Facebook is generally the best for increasing brand awareness and might be the best option for increasing sales. Choosing the right platform is crucial because you want to connect with the right people who are interested in your content and display content that they like which may drive up sales. If your idea is to reach out to youth, Instagram might be the best option.
Make Relationships, Not Followers:
The idea with this one is to be human in your posts. Overall, you don’t want to come across as a big corporation and regard followers as just a number. Try and engage with them and ask for feedback on content. The content you put out should at least sometimes should be social. Things you can do to interact with your followers are to mention people as you reference them, answer people’s questions, reply to other people’s content or reply to others in your content.

Furthermore, feedback allows you to know which areas to improve and gains you more respect. We recommend using feedback to learn what you can improve (product, service or content), strive to make those improvements (but don’t try to please everybody because you can’t) and display it again repeating the cycle.
