5 Reasons Why Social Media Management is Worth the Investment

Picture this; you have the permits, license, and name registration ready for your new business. Your product or services are ready to be purchased by your target audience, your website is launched, and your social media platforms are created… You have it all ready to go, right?. Not quite.

It’s time to invest in social media management! Your presence online is not only to have a website, an Etsy shop, and a couple of social media platforms. You must dedicate time, energy, and money to create a consistent strategic message that reflects your business in all aspects. 

Still not convinced about the investment? Let’s break it down into five reasons why you should invest in social media management:

 

  1. Social media is perfect for redirecting traffic to your website.

If your goal is to have more traffic to your website, then social media is essential. Let’s put it simply, SEO is like the highway. Social media is like road signs to guide people to your website; you can track this using metrics and statistics and even incorporate google analytics into your reports! Because you ARE taking a look at the monthly reports, right?…

 

     2. Social Media Reports:

Do you know how to read the metrics for your different social media platforms? Do you know what awareness, impressions, reach, ROI, and KPI mean for your business? Do you know how to translate that into a strategy to elevate your business?

If you answered “No” to any of these questions, you need help in social media management!

Social media metrics can provide detailed information about your followers and your target audience. With this data, you can create an effective social media strategy that takes into account their social media habits and how they interact with you. Additionally, social media metrics can give you insights into overall brand sentiment. By understanding what people are saying about you online, you can take steps to improve your reputation. In short, social media metrics are essential for any business that wants to succeed online.

 

     3. Chances are that your audience is present on one or more social media platforms!

Social media is great for engaging with your audience but is also an amazing tool to help your clients and provide customer service. They also expect solutions and useful information on your platforms, so it’s important to include tips, FAQs, and “how to” related to your industry, products, or services.

You also have to make this type of content eye-catching and trendy to stay current and give your audience a reason to interact with you!

 

    4. Social media influences buying behavior.

The power of social media is undeniable. According to a recent poll by Harris Interactive, 68% percent likelihood that Millennials will purchase something after seeing an advertisement or shared content from a friend, family member, or their favorite influencer on their go-to platform!

 

    5. People are likely already talking about your brand on social media.

You can participate in conversations about your company, brand, or product by setting up Mention alerts. You’ll be able to monitor all of the latest discussions related to these topics on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, where there’s a high chance that potential customers may have already discussed their thoughts regarding them!

The Importance of Transparent Client Relationships

Iceberg Analogy

We, as marketing professionals, are responsible for having the experience, knowledge, and tools to manage our client’s marketing platforms. While marketing professionals manage a company’s growth, outreach, and strategy, the client maintains the role of ultimate decision-maker. We can form a fantastic team because we balance each other out! It is as simple as that. Clients have organic information about their business that marketing professionals need to apply their knowledge to make their brand stand out online. This is why working with a transparent marketing agency is so important. Is the client-marketing agency relationship that simple?

How to Create a Balanced Client – TAL Relationship?

Open communication. We, as marketing professionals, can -and will- develop channels of communication between the clients and our team of specialists dedicated to making their business our own. From basic concepts of social media to marketing strategies, we would take the time to explain what we will do and how we will do it.

Based on my experience as a social media coordinator, I recommend taking 10 to 30 minutes to answer questions or concerns during meetings with the client. This process helps build trust and healthy business relationships that will allow us to move forward and generate a great online brand.

I’ve had a few clients that didn’t know much about social media. They wanted to be on Facebook and Instagram because they knew it was necessary and everyone was doing it, but they did not know why exactly. I took the time to explain to them that by having an online presence, their business can more effectively reach their customers and clients. They were happy to learn and ultimately understand the technicalities of digital marketing and have become one of my best clients! They give me all the resources I need to know more about their business, and they see the results! AKA: new customers are purchasing their products or services.
