Setting clear goals are vital to any marketing plan and social media is no exception. Do you want a high CTR (click through rate) or are you simply building brand awareness through social engagements, likes, shares, and comments?
Whether you want to drive more traffic to your website, engage with your customers or increase your brand awareness, ExtraDigital will ensure these goals remain at the heart of your social media marketing.
When Social Media is used correctly you can build a team of customers who will advocate for your business online effectively marketing your business for free.
Social also enables you in building a strong community and builds greater customer loyalty.
Step 2: Which Social Networks Suit Your Business?
Choosing the right social networks is vital, get it wrong and you could be talking to the wrong audience for your products or services.
For B2B customers often LinkedIn, Twitter and Quora are the best performing social networks. While if you’re a fashion eCommerce store then there is a lot to be gained with Instagram and Pinterest.
