For a company or brand to be truly successful, it is important to build a relationship with the consumer. Having a well rounded and engaging social media presence is more often than not the special ingredient that helps a brand edge out their competition.
Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are no longer just for sharing funny cat videos, they are leading platforms for large scale advertising and marketing campaigns that provide an outlet for consumers all over the world to voice their opinions and interact with top companies. People want to feel connected to the brands they use and social media is a great way to become relatable to the average consumer. People are hungry for the next viral post or video to share with their friends, and with the right social media campaign, any brand can be knocking at that door.
Social media plans should not be an after thought that is delegated to an overworked employee who happens to have an iPhone and knows what “Throwback Thursday” means. The message that a brand wants to convey across all platforms is a crucial starting point that should be discussed with professionals in the communications field. Every brand should be confident in their “brand language”, or wording that stays consistent over time and on every social media channel. When it comes to posting content, it needs to be carefully thought out material that does more than just fill the void and say “look I’m here!”. Social media content should align with the brand message and it should engage your followers in new and unique ways. The process of selecting what to post on different platforms is much more complicated than it may first appear. There are “tricks of the trade”, that an agency like ours employs when it comes to social media, such as optimum posting times and utilizing different platform lingo. Social media may be all fun and games for your personal accounts, but when it comes to representing a brand with content made for the entire world to see, it becomes serious business.
