How does social media marketing work?

Social media marketing is simply the act of using social media platforms – such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn, to reach out to your audience. This can be organically, through posts from your social accounts, or you can choose to sponsor posts or create ads that can be displayed to audiences on news feeds or in messages. These platforms offer specific audience targeting, considering demographics such as age, location, gender, interests, job titles and behaviours. You can decide what objective you want to set for your campaign, for example brand awareness or lead generation.

Is social media cost-effective?

Social media marketing can be one of the most cost-effective ways of reaching your audience online. Setting up social accounts and posting updates is of course free, but can be time consuming. You may therefore wish to consider an agency to set the strategy, create the content and do the scheduling on your behalf. There are also various paid advertising options available including options for re-targeting existing audiences, and social media can provide a more cost-effective alternative to traditional pay per click advertising. However, bear in mind that when a potential customer clicks on a paid search ad, there’s a clear intent; they’re searching for your services right now. Social media users may not be as far in their buying journey. That being said, you’re still building a pipeline of potential customers, and reaching a larger volume of people.

How has social media marketing changed?

Social media marketing is constantly evolving. New social networks pop up constantly, whilst other platforms may start to see a shift in demographics – for example Facebook used to be considered to be for people in their teens and early twenties, now the average Facebook user in the U.S. is 40.5 years old. It’s really important therefore to keep up with the demographics of each platform, to make sure you’re reaching the right people. It’s also important to keep up with new features and advertising options. One thing that should remain the same however, is your core marketing principles.

Is social media marketing effective?

How effective your social media marketing is will depend on a number of factors, including the nature of your business, your objectives, your audience and your available budgets. You can however, tailor your social media strategy to the goals you want to meet, either organically or through paid advertising, to maximise every opportunity. With over 3 billion users of Facebook globally, 1.6 billion on instagram, and over a billion on LinkedIn, chances are there’s an audience for you on social media. Just how successful you are is down to targeting the right people with the right message.

Which social media platform is best?

This completely depends on your audience. LinkedIn for example is a platform built especially for networking professionally. It’s a B2B marketers dream with over 70 million decision makers worldwide. That being said, don’t automatically rule out the other platforms if you’re a B2B company. You’re still dealing with people and those people still use social media in their spare time.
If you have a very visual offering, Instagram or Pinterest might be your perfect platform. Despite talk of decline, Facebook still remains the most used platform, and can be a particularly cost-effective option for ads.

What does a social media marketing agency do?

Much more than simply broadcasting the occasional post from your social media accounts, a social agency can help you understand your target audience, the platforms they use, and create and implement a full social media strategy to meet your commercial objectives.

As well as putting together a variety of innovative content ideas, an agency should understand engagement metrics, and how to maximise and measure impact, whether that be increasing followers, brand awareness, driving traffic or generating leads. At FSE Digital, we strive to understand your business and goals, so that your social media marketing fits in with your wider strategy.
