Engage Your Ideal Audience Where They Hang Out
SOCIAL MEDIA POSTING
Social media platforms make meaningful connections by design. While the execution may vary between them, the intention of authentic conversation is a common thread. As a result, brands can leverage their social media accounts to gain new customers with the right social media marketing strategy.
Successful social media strategies perfectly execute these specific components:
Establish where you should build a social media presence.
Many businesses spread their content too thin to be on every social media platform possible. The result is weak content everywhere instead of solid content in the places that matter most to your marketing goals. Choose the social media channels that match what your brand offers and where the highest concentration of your target audience hangs out.
Research relevant topics for your business and your ideal audience.
Research is the step we see skipped over most often. On social media platforms, it’s important to identify your target audience and create relevant content. This can’t be done without research. What does your audience care about? Why should you be the one to have that conversation?
Write and design posts that speak to an individual.
If your social media efforts are going to captivate your target audience, you have to think about the one person (your ideal customer) that you want to reach with your social media posts. While there are dozens of tools available to design posts, the post text is just as important, if not more. Content creation should be intentional if you expect anyone to pay attention.
Schedule consistent posts throughout the week.
Like the majority of consumers, your target audience is spending a lot of time on different social media platforms. If your content is going to break into their feed, it must be consistent. There isn’t a single post that will convert your social media followers into customers. Creating brand awareness takes a steady stream of content to establish brand recognition and nurture this audience until they are ready to move to the next stage of the customer journey.
Don’t forget to stay social.
Social media should never be a one-sided conversation. If you hire a social media agency to help with social posting, don’t forget to stay engaged. Responding to comments, replying to other businesses in your industry, and posting more organic content throughout the month will help your brand establish a profile worthy of engagement.
The DCM Approach
Businesses that fail to turn likes and followers into paying customers often get on social media because they think it’s what they were supposed to do. Posting feels more like a chore, engagement is hit or miss, and growth isn’t happening. The right social media marketing agency can turn these channels into a warm audience ready to take the next step.
