Social Media Stats for Your Savvy Businesses

Businesses around the globe are facing the challenge of balancing their marketing plans to include a social presence. Marketing a business is not easy to begin with, but a business has to become social and we have the statistics to back us up.

Making your business social can increase sales when you do it right. Finding the right social medium platform to effectively engage with your ideal customer means evaluating your Buyer Personas  and adapting your social media plan accordingly.

This will vary by type of industry and audience– preaching to the wrong crowd will waste time and money. Facebook is not the only platform you need to focus on. If you are trying to hit a younger market, consider sites such as Instagram and Pinterest.

A healthy social media reputation requires frequent posts, comments and replies to other’s comments. Respond promptly and professionally to comments and requests that show up on social media sites.  The whole point of social media is to engage with your audience and talk about what is important to them.

Get Your Business Social Now or Regret It Later

Get Your Business Social Now or Regret It Later

Don’t believe me?

Then do not read this article on why your business needs to wake up and smell the social media tide rolling in. Actually, it is more like a tsunami – become a social butterfly now!

Get Your Business Social Now or Regret It Later

If you asked me a decade ago, or perhaps even five years ago, I would have said that social media is not a viable marketing tool for business. I was one of the many naysayers regarding using social media as a core component of a digital marketing plan. After all, there was simply no way to measure the ROI of social media marketing. Well, I am big enough to admit I was dead wrong.

Much as I hate to say it, social media has become a most effective way to create and maintain brand awareness, manage your business’ reputation and to show off your products and/or services.

That being said, a haphazard approach to a social media campaign is not advisable. Please take the time to learn where your Ideal Customers are and the best way to engage and provide them with quality content that they want. Develop Buyer Persona so that you can better determine what social networks to target.

You may find that you have a variety of buyer personas that dictate you segment your social media marketing efforts in order to hit the right person at the right time in the right place with the right message.

A good way to do this is to do a little ‘social listening.’  Twitter is an amazing tool for this. Alternatively, use apps, such as HootSuite, to monitor certain words, phrases or hashtags.  Understanding what people are saying about your brand, competitor or industry can help to mold your marketing effort or products. This will allow you to give your customers what they want — not what you think they want!

Make it a point to give value over viral content. While there have been some companies that have perfected or lucked into creating viral content—it is not a realistic goal. In fact, trying to be witty or sarcastic with your content might just backfire and hurt your brand. Tread carefully; your online reputation is a valuable asset that you do not want to treat lightly or flippantly.

Use social media to provide quality content on a regular basis. The rule of thumb is 4-1-1; provide four fluffy or fun pieces to one post focusing on your industry and one post plugging your product or services.  Engagement is the key to successfully marketing your business on social media. Every ‘like’ ‘share’ and ‘retweet’ expands your reach exponentially.

By the way, social media marketing is not just a B2C strategy. LinkedIn and Twitter have a myriad of uses in B2B. Networking with your industry professionals or target industries online can be invaluable and a great branding tool. Develop name recognition before you send your first email or make your first call. These sites can help get targeted leads who have already engaged with your brand and see it a source of value in your area of expertise.

How to Unite Your Brand Through Social Relationship Management

How to Turn Negative Social Media Comments into a Positive for Your Business

How to Turn Negative Social Media Comments into a Positive for Your Business


 

Every brand comes across a disgruntled customer at some point. When that customer posts a negative feedback on one or more of your social media pages, it’s up to you to turn it into a positive. The important thing to remember is that people who post complaints on social media just want to be heard. AND many times the way a company responds can make all the difference!

It is imperative that you take the time to read over their post and try to figure out a way to make the situation better.  Most of the time, customers write a negative review in the heat of the moment. After they post and have some time, their anger will subside a bit.

It doesn’t matter if you agree with them that your company did something wrong, you are in the public arena and saying “I’m sorry” you feel that way about your experience goes a long way.  Acknowledging their pain and making it clear that you’d like to fix the situation not only shows this particular customer that you care, but it shows everyone monitoring the post that you care.  Did you know that 33% of negative reviews turn positive when you respond?

Once you’ve acknowledged your unhappy customer, try to take the conversation private by encouraging them to email you the details. Often a little humility or humor can diffuse the situation.

For example, check out how Australian grocer “Woolworth’s turns negative social media feedback into positive PR”. An unhappy customer, Ryan Goodall, used Facebook as a sounding board when he was upset about getting overripe avocados from a local Woolworths. He posted a picture along witty tirade about how disappointed he was that the avocados did not live up to the Woolworth’s ‘the fresh food people idea’.

Within 20 minutes, the social media team of Woolworths responded, “Ryan!-the disappointment is more than we can bare! Private Message us your number and we will hook a brother up.” This humorous and sincere response triggered a huge amount of kudos from social media users. The original post received 35,000 likes and over 2,500 shares.

By listening and acting proactively, Woolworths was able to get more positive traction for its brand. The moral of this story is that your brand should be consistently monitoring its social channels and promptly respond to any negative feedback in the most positive appropriate manner possible in order to flip a negative situation into a positive one.

Inbound Marketing Gives a Higher ROI Than Outbound Marketing

There is a place for both inbound and outbound marketing for any business. Both methods work, but  inbound marketing can be more cost effective, as it has a higher ROI.

This infographic ‘That Extraordinary, ROI-Driving Engine We Call Inbound Marketing’ reveals that the average cost per lead is much lower for inbound marketing versus outbound marketing. In fact, it’s 61% less expensive. That’s nothing to sneeze at!

Inbound Marketing is a natural fit for digital marketing. Think about it. By creating your own little cyber territory and attracting people who are genuinely interested in what you share through a variety of online marketing tools, such as blogs, white-pages, eBooks, newsletters,  and social media posts, you have a better chance of converting them into a customer.

The more users interact with your online branding material, the more of an authority you become. That will translate into higher earnings down the road. Note that those businesses that blog multiple times a week attract 25% more leads than those that blog only once a week.

Check it out and share with us on Facebook how your business is using inbound marketing to get better qualified leads.
