Social media marketing takes time. Time away from what you do best, running your business. After setting up your Facebook fan page years ago and promising yourself you're going to faithfully post and get new business, you quickly discover that posting consistently is a little more time-consuming than you thought. Coming up with valuable content, scheduling posts for off hours, responding to interactions, and building your following all take time soon you realize you haven't posted anything since Christmas of 2014.
What kind of posts work best on which platforms? What are the best times of day to post? Is it better to link a Facebook post to a YouTube video or upload the video directly to Facebook?
Sure, the answers to these questions and more are out there, but we've already done the homework. A good social media marketing agency knows the answers already and can help put together a marketing strategy that gets you more followers and ultimately more business.
In order to be successful social media content needs to engage the audience. Simply stating a fact or occasionally sharing an article does not qualify as a successful strategy. The most shared content across all social media platforms is usually visual. You need someone who can find or create infographics, meme's, videos, and enhanced photos.
Look, we all know that time is money. Just considering these three factors mentioned above, utilizing the services of the right social media marketing agency will not only save you time and money, but build your brand recognition and bring in more customers which, obviously, makes you money. And that's a good thing!
