Recently we discussed the importance of avoiding some key social media marketing mistakes in order to get the most out of your social media platforms. Now, in this post, we would like to discuss some of the things you should be doing in order to make your campaign successful. In other words, these are the “dos” for social media marketing success.
The first thing you need to do is have a plan. Don’t enter the social media marketing game without a good strategy. In order to have a successful campaign you need to know what your objectives are and what you hope to achieve through using social media. Are you looking for more brand awareness, or perhaps increased website traffic? Maybe you are searching for more clients. Whatever it is you hope to achieve, you need to make sure you have your priorities in place, along with a clear understanding of how you hope to achieve those goals.
Another very important step you need to take is to do your research. Make sure you have a strong understanding of your market and of what your competitors are doing successfully before you determine your strategy. If you know what works for your competitors then you can implement those same tools effectively. You also need to join in on any and all relevant conversations going on in social media in regards to your industry. Learn how people interact with each other, as well as how they interact with your type of business. Then jump in with smart conversation.
Once you have started to add contacts and followers make sure that you continue to build those relationships and work to engage those contacts with your clients. You also need to measure your results. You can use Google analytics to do this in order to see who is visiting your site as well as your social media pages and see what they are doing when they are there. As you do all of these things you can start to gain a better understanding of how your social media campaigns are working. You can then tweak them and adapt them in an effort to constantly improve your strategy and results.
