How to Use Social Media to Boost Your Digital Marketing Efforts
Uploaded at: 06-01-2023
Marketers can start improving social media marketing success by defining goals and objectives for using the platforms. It's best to align this strategy's goals with those of the business as well. Having these goals in place will also help measure the success of the social media marketing efforts.
It's beneficial for organizations to compile data around existing customers. From this information, it becomes clear who is buying and how they are interacting with a brand online.
While different audiences use different social media platforms, it's not an ideal strategy to roll out social media marketing programs on all social channels -- at least at first. Marketers should start with a few social media channels to master. Major platforms for businesses include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. But others such as Pinterest and YouTube also have a place when it comes to advertising or promoting offerings. Each has a unique place in the market and use cases.
Creating timely and relevant posts is always a good idea, but organizations should ensure that content published on other channels can be repurposed for social media. When a new blog comes out, businesses should promote it on social media -- multiple times. Marketers should sprinkle promotional content at various times over several weeks to get the most return.
