What a Strong Social Media Presence brings to your brand
1. Increased Brand Recognition.
Think of your business' social media networks as new channels for your brand’s voice and content, making you easier and more accessible for new customers and more familiar and recognizable for existing customers.
2. Improved brand loyalty.
It has been proven that people who follow brands on social media platforms are more loyal to those brands.
3. More Opportunities to Convert.
Every post you make within your social media strategy is an opportunity for customers to convert. When you build a following, you’ll simultaneously have access to new customers, recent customers, and old customers. Every piece of content that you share is a chance for someone to react, and every reaction could lead to a site visit, and eventually a conversion. "Opportunity” is the first element of any action.
4. Higher conversion rates.
Brands become more humanised by interacting in social media channels. Social marketing means brands can act like people do, and this is important because people like doing business with other people; not with companies. Social media has a 100% higher lead-to-close rate than outbound marketing, and a higher number of social media followers tends to improve trust and credibility in your brand, representing social proof.
5. Higher Brand Authority.
Marketing with social media and interacting with your customers regularly is a show of good faith for other customers. When people go to compliment or brag about a product or service, they turn to social media. And when they post your brand name, new audience members will want to follow you for updates. The more people that are talking about you on social media, the more valuable and authoritative your brand will seem to new users.
6. Increased Inbound Traffic.
Without social media, your inbound traffic is limited to people already familiar with your brand. Every social media profile you add is another path leading back to your site, and every piece of content you share across those profiles is another opportunity for a new visitor; this leads to more traffic, more leads and more conversions.
7.Better Search Engine Rankings.
Google and other search engines may be calculating their rankings using social media presence as a significant factor, because of the fact that strong brands almost always use social media. As such, being active on social media could act as a “brand signal” to search engines that your brand is legitimate, credible, and trustworthy.
8. Richer Customer Experiences.
Social media is a communication channel like email or phone calls. Every customer interaction you have on social media is an opportunity to publicly demonstrate your customer service level and enrich your relationship with your customers. For example, if a customer complains about your product on Twitter, you can immediately address the comment, apologize publicly, and take action to make it right. Or, if a customer compliments you, you can thank them and recommend additional products. It’s a personal experience that lets customers know you care about them.
9. Improved Customer Insights.
Social media also gives you an opportunity to gain valuable information about what your customers are interested in and how they behave. It is possible to monitor user comments to see what people think of your business directly. This also makes it easy to know which types of content generate the most interest—and then produce more of that type of content.
Outlined above are the benefits of sustaining a long-term social media campaign, but if you’re still apprehensive about getting started, consider these points:
Your Competition Is Already Involved.
Your competitors are already involved on social media, which means your potential social media traffic and conversions are being poached. Don’t let your competitors reap all the benefits while you stand by. If, somehow, your competition is not involved on social media, there’s even more of a reason to get started!
The Sooner You Start, the Sooner You Reap the Benefits.
Social media is all about relationship building, and it tends to grow exponentially as your followers tell their friends, and their friends tell their friends, and so on. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll be able to start growing a engaged audience.
Potential Losses Are Insignificant.
Realistically, you don’t have anything to lose by getting involved in social media; compared to other marketing channels it is relatively inexpensive. Just a few hours a week or a few hundred pounds investment can be all it takes to establish your presence.
