In our socially connected world, your business needs to be participating on several social media channels in order to grow your business. Social media marketing is another way to generate interest, leads and sales. Unlike other marketing channels, many marketers struggle with social media. So let’s look at 3 ways you can use social media marketing to grow your business.
- Reach – Social media marketing offers you an opportunity to increase your marketing reach and even the potential to go viral. When your customers share what they are doing with you or special offers that you have with their friends and followers, you reap the benefits. Most people interact with some form of social media; it is in your interest to be there with them. Remember that the best way to increase your reach is to stand out and do something fun or different.
- Low Cost Ads – Most social media ads are cheaper than traditional ads. Take advantage of this and try out some ads today! You can reach all ages and demographics to really target your ads to the right people. Keep in mind that users are on social media a lot, so you have a great opportunity to reach them.
- Communication – Social media gives you the opportunity to directly connect with your customers and prospects. They can reach out to you to share their thoughts, questions, and ideas that then help you to get to know them better. Remember the more you know the better targeting you can do. You should be prepared to respond quickly to any comments posted. It also allows others to see how great your company is when you respond to people. Everyone wants fabulous customer service.
Are you better able to distinguish the benefits of adding social media marketing to grow your business? There are of course more than 3 ways but these are the top 3. Engagement on an individual level with people really boosts your status as a company people want to do business with. When you humanize your company people want to do business with you more.
Use social media marketing as a way to leverage conversations, connections, and engagement with your prospects and customers. It will help you grow your business. I am not advocating switching all your marketing dollars to social media, which will not work. However, social media as part of a multi-channel approach is very effective.
