Many people ponder the question “How can I market my business more effectively”? One of the best ways to reach large audiences, at a relatively cost-effective manner is through social media.
But, before you start a social media marketing campaign, you should consider your business’s goals. Starting a social media marketing campaign without a strategy will only end in confusion.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself while defining your social media marketing goals:
- Who is my target audience?
- Where does my target audience hang out, or who are their friends?
- How does my target audience use social media?
- What message do I want to send my target audience?
One key factor to note is that your type of business will drive your social media marketing strategy, naturally.
For example, a travel agency, can get a lot of value from a strong presence on Instagram or Pinterest because of the pictures of that agency’s destinations. Whereas, a business-to-business (B2B) or service company might find more leverage in Twitter or Linkedin.
With more than 2.5 billion people worldwide active on social media, influencing consumers to purchase specific products or services is no trouble at all and even more effective than television ads! As the number of social media users worldwide continues to grow, all types of companies from small businesses to conglomerates will increasingly find that social networking influences their revenue and sales.
