How to write a social media marketing plan
It is very important to have a social media marketing plan in order to effectively use the power of social media. If you haven’t written one, it is very easy to make mistakes. You can even make it easier by establishing a schedule that will work for you. The key is to set goals and recognise your time limitations. Identifying those goals will help you develop a strategy that is both realistic and efficient. Once you have an idea of what you want to achieve, you can write a plan and start implementing it.
Why use social media as a marketing tool
Social media allows companies to engage with customers and create a bond between them and their potential buyers. The marketing strategies involve a combination of proactive and reactive content. A brand can use social media to promote its products or services by allowing its customers to post reviews, share posts and comment on posts. While traditional media is limited to one-way interaction and a push-and-tell approach, social media allows for a two-way exchange of ideas and feedback.
It allows very specific demographic targeting and often can be quite a cost effective medium to get your message across to thousands of potential customers.
What social media platforms should I use for my business?
There are so many social media platforms to choose from, it can become overwhelming. It depends on your company type and target customers to which platform is best for your business. We always recomend having at least a presence on Facebook for all business types. B2C should also have Instagram and B2B should always have LinkedIn. Always do your research to see where your customers are active.
For example, a clothing store may find success on Instagram. A B2B company might do better on Twitter and LinkedIn. Using social media can help a business understands its consumers better and create a more relevant product. These types of platforms can be time consuming to start up. Small business owners should learn the basics of social media marketing before getting started. There are many free online courses to take such as Hubspot’s.
