Why is Social Media Marketing So Beneficial for Small Businesses?By: Mary Kate Cavanaugh Posted: January 31, 2022
Have you ever been scrolling through your social media feed and noticed an ad that seems unbelievably fitting for your preferences? Me too. In fact, I think anyone with a social media account of some sort has experienced this, and if you’re saying no, you’re probably lying. At first, I thought, wow, what an invasion of privacy! How do they know I’m interested?! Then I thought a little bit more about it and realized they are simply making my life easier with social media marketing. While these companies are making it easier for people like you and me to shop for what we specifically want, they’re increasing their revenue as well. It’s a WIN-WIN if you ask me. So where do you start? Well, it depends on the platform. Each social media platform has its own strategy and purpose. Whether you are trying to engage and relate with your audience or sell to your audience there are specific platforms that are better than others to use depending on the message you are trying to convey. Let’s break it down…
Each Social Media Platform Has Its Own Purpose
Facebook is great for building an audience and following for your brand. It is very useful for interacting with customers and fans by being there to answer questions and start discussions. Facebook ads can be a huge benefit to your business because the targeted audiences you can create will get your message in front of your desired audience.
LinkedIn showcases your workplace and what it’s like to work there. It is a great place to post new job opportunities and recruit potential employees. LinkedIn also helps you connect and engage with other business professionals. This isn’t the best place to sell, sell, sell! This platform is more for educational and business opportunity purposes.
Instagram is useful when publishing and viewing visually appealing content such as videos, and photos. This is great for digital marketing and selling your product by providing a visual for potential customers. Lots of shopping takes place on Instagram. Now more than ever!
However, if you want to get website visits from Instagram you need to utilize Instagram Advertising because unfortunately, Instagram does not populate links in the captions of your post. This does not mean that Instagram posting isn’t beneficial to growing your business. Having an attractive and engaging Instagram profile for your brand improves the confidence your audience members have in your business and its reputation.
An additional social media platform that Brandit loves to utilize is none other than Google itself. Most people forget that Google can be utilized for social media purposes. Google Advertising and Google My Business (GMB) are some of the most powerful tools online to help grow your business. By tailoring your ad based on the results you want you can get more calls to your business, increase visits to your store, and drive people to your website! You can either target globally or locally and depending on your approach Google can get your ad in front of the right people. As I mentioned before, another useful tool that people overlook is posting on GMB. Just like any other social media platform you can post on GMB to promote your services, educate, or simply engage with your audience. Your audience and customer base can leave positive reviews that you can utilize in your advertising efforts as well. Not to mention all of the tracking and analytics Google provides that the Brandit team can report back to you. This gives you the opportunity to help you understand what areas you need to work on and what areas are flourishing.
