If you own a small-to-medium-sized business and find it painfully difficult to effectively promote your business and engage your audience through social media, rest assured you're not alone.
Indeed, almost all small businesses (93%) struggle with social media across all platforms. In particular, companies report they struggle with:
- Generating good leads
- Growing their number of followers
- Increasing user engagement
- Posting consistently
- Creating content
- Curating content
- Filtering content
The good news is that all of this can be overcome with a strong marketing strategy, expert implementation, and consistency thereafter.
Importantly, businesses typically see improvement when they hire a professional to steer these efforts rather than continue to employ a trial and error-style approach to marketing and throw good money after bad.
We see it so often. A business first gets on Social Media and they post away, every day, but as time goes by and they are not seeing their time paying off, they start posting less and less until all of a sudden, they are rarely posting, and the time train keeps going on and on, then all of a sudden, they look like they are not in business anymore because their social media was not posted on in 2 years+. Times flies. Social Media can really make that apparent. Don't let this happen to you.
A professional agency will ensure your company consistently posts creative content that grows your number of followers and encourages user engagement, such as survey questions about customer satisfaction or other aspects of your industry. Other tactics include:
- Mentioning followers
- Initiating conversation
- Promptly responding to questions
- Promoting user-generated content
- Using hashtags effectively
- Conducting giveaways
- Organizing live chats
- Being relentlessly active
This is, understandably, too much work for many small businesses, and most likely outside their area of expertise. Indeed, this is why companies report that social media marketing is an exhausting struggle!
The solution lies in searching for an expert and hiring the one that's right for you and your company.
