Today, when social networks have so firmly entered our lives and become not just a platform for communicating with friends, but also a new source of information, it is worth paying special attention to the SMM promotion of your business.
SMM is social media marketing. Almost all directions and aspects of a PR campaign can be implemented through social networks: this is a content strategy that will consistently and purposefully inform the audience about your product, and communication with consumers, and conducting advertising campaigns, promotions, contests, identifying the mood of the audience, increasing loyalty.
Why is it already impossible to do without SMM promotion?
The presence on social networks makes brands “humane.” When you use them in addition to advertising familiar to everyone, the level of trust in your products increases.
It is also important that this communication channel is the cheapest way to express yourself to a large audience. Compared to television, the press, and even online media, displaying on social networks will provide you with the most coverage for the least money. Moreover, you won’t be able to more accurately address your advertising message anywhere. Targeting (target audience definition) is an important tool that allows you not only to reach your “potential” consumer but also save a lot because every cent aimed at advertising on social networks will be spent on attracting the person you need.
In addition, now that all communication channels are being integrated together, it is important for companies to have not only their own sites but also actively update information about themselves on social networks. Now all the news, assortment, prices, and even reviews can be seen on one page!
Needless to say, the content of a page on a social network will cost you much less than maintaining a whole site?
Therefore, if you are still not on Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Instagram, fix this error immediately!
Can I do SMM myself?
Creating an account on a social platform, you must understand what kind of SMM-strategy and tasks you will implement.
First, you need to decide what audience you are going to influence: where these people live, how old they are, how much they earn, and what they are interested in on the Internet. Then the content plan is approved: topics and post format. Time for publications is determined based on the statistics of visiting pages and viewing news. SMM specialists do not accidentally choose a specific time for posts: by testing, they determine the optimal period when the largest number of people will see your news.
Therefore, it is a mistake to be guided by the logic “I am on Facebook and can easily cope with maintaining the page of my business.” Answer your question: are you ready to spend all your time studying information, making mistakes, and wasting budgets?
Entrusting the services of SMM-promotion to experienced professionals, the manifestation of your business in the public space will be high-quality and effective.
After reviewing your product, managers will help:
1. Determine the current goals and objectives of the campaign:
