When is Social Media Marketing Effective?

Who Wants to Read Your Social Content?

Do you have an established base of fans who may want to read your content, or are you planning to build one up from scratch? Starting in social media is difficult no matter what the answer is, but the latter adds a new level of complexity.

Is Your Content Exciting?

While we might not want to consider it, some companies just aren’t made for social media. Social media users want to see exciting, visually engaging material — they’re not going to stop and look through something that doesn’t immediately capture their attention.

What Does Your Customer Journey Look Like?

Social media isn’t just about building engagement — it’s about making profits for your business. If the likes don’t translate to sales, you’re spending a lot of time and effort to achieve very little. Far too many companies start using social media with the expectation that the sales will just roll in.

Maximizing Social Media Results

Even if your social media is full of must-read content, with an immediately engaging design, and has a clearly defined path from engagement to conversion, profitability is far from guaranteed. That said, it does take time to develop a practical social approach fully — don’t write off your social presence just because you don’t immediately see results.
