Social media marketing is a method of promoting your brand, product, service or company by making your presence known via a variety of social media networks.
Social media websites are changing where consumers are getting their information before, during and after they buy products and services.
According to a 2008 Harris Interactive Poll, 54% of Americans do not trust the media. In a different study conducted by Nielson, 78% of survey respondents said they trusted, either completely or somewhat, the recommendations of other consumers.
Social media marketing and traditional forms of marketing require different skill sets and strategies. Don’t assume that just because your ad agency can write great copy, and are whiz-kids when it comes to search engine optimization or creating websites that they can handle your social media marketing efforts.
To accommodate the needs of all our clients, we have outlined several different levels of training and ongoing services.
Social Media Services:
Option #1 – One-on-one social media training and consulting. This can be accomplished either in-person or through an online “Go-To-Meeting”
Option #3 – Getting you set up on the major social media sites and letting you handle the rest
Option #4 – “Set it and forget it” approach, where we become your social media marketing department.
Consultations and communication can be done via phone, remote webinars, e-mail and on-site. In simple terms we can accommodate almost any social media marketing need you have.
If we manage your social media marketing efforts, the time commitments from the client side is mostly to be sure that we are aware of things going on in your company. This way we can help promote your products and services, build brand awareness, educate prospects and show value to the friends, fans, followers and connections on all your social media sites. This is a very important part of the process.
Please note that we do not suggest we “become you” in the personal sense and highly recommend that our clients participate and contribute these types of posts on their own.
After careful analysis of your company’s goals, objectives and target market, we work with you to develop a unique social media marketing plan. Whether you are looking to increase brand awareness, drive traffic to your website or offline business or find new channels of distribution, we can help.
The idea is to build upon the strengths and marketing efforts you already have in place and make them stronger using the unique power of social media. We use a unique social media discovery process to determine which social media sites to utilize and how best to promote your business.
