It’s 2020, we all have a general understanding of social media and how it works, right? What if I told you that more than $90bn was spent on social media advertising last year, or that Instagram has a higher number of active users over the weekend, would you still think you’re a social media expert?
Having a social media presence without a well thought out strategy and plan can be just as detrimental for your business as no plan at all. It’s imperative to understand the strategies and engineering that are behind building healthy social interactions online. One of the easiest mistakes for a business to make is to create social media accounts then neglect to give them the time and energy to maintain an active presence. We’ve seen first hand how much social media can drive sales, build consumer relationships and enhance brand awareness.
An experienced social media manager has the skills and knowledge to understand how consumers behave and react to content posted online, giving them the ability to develop strategies for your business based on the relevant consumer patterns specific to your market. We understand, you probably think that spending money on social media isn’t important, but with the help of a social media manager and well thought out strategy you can drive a significant return on investment both for your brand image and financial benefits.
