Social media marketing is more and more critical for businesses to have each and every year. It is a great complement to PPC, SEO and other digital marketing efforts. A proper social media campaign can really bolster an existing digital campaign to bring massive results. Social media marketing can send signals to search engines and can have a positive influence on your SEO & paid search campaigns. Social media shouldn’t just be thought of as an optional part of digital marketing. It is a critical and large part of the digital landscape and should be taken seriously in your approach to marketing your business.
What is Social Media Marketing?
Social media marketing is a digital marketing channel that utilizes different social media platforms to increase brand presence, customer engagement, and revenue. Common social media platforms include Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Youtube. Using social media allows small and large businesses to reach new audiences that they likely would not reach on traditional marketing channels.
When creating and managing a social media marketing campaign it is important to focus on efficiency and ROI. The goal is to generate engagement, but at the end of the day increasing revenue is the entire point of marketing. Whether you are running an organic or paid ad campaign, you need to be able to measure the effectiveness of your efforts.
Social Media Marketing Fundamentals
Social media has become a widespread phenomenon in the last 15 years, and is a huge advantage for businesses that are able to leverage it. The amount of attention and focus given to social media platforms by the general public is huge. It’s a great place for your brand to be as your prospective customers scroll through their social media feeds.
- Globally, nearly 5 Billion people use social media on a monthly basis.
- Over 300 million social media users were added in 2020
- Users spend an average of 2 hours and 30 minutes on social media every day.
- Social media continues to grow exponentially
With all of this time spent on their websites, social media platforms have a lot of user data at their fingertips. This is a bit creepy, but also big for your business. By using social media correctly, you can target people who are likely to be interested in your product at very efficient prices on organic and paid campaigns. This means more ROI and increased revenue. Each year it’s becoming more and more essential for businesses to take advantage of social media to compete in the marketplace.
Social Media Marketing Service Benefits
Social media marketing services have a ton of advantages for businesses of all sizes, from startups to large, established brands. A professional social media marketing strategy and campaign can result in more social media traffic, improved SEO results, increased social media engagement, more social media customers, and an improved brand presence across the web.
Below are some highlights about why you should invest in social media marketing services:
Better Visibility In Markets
Social media has become a big part of an average person’s daily life. People spend time on social media at work, at home, in line at the grocery check out, etc. With so much attention focused on social media it pays dividends to incorporate social media marketing into your digital marketing strategy. You’ll become more visible in your market and reach audiences who are in-market for your product/service that you likely haven’t been reaching with other marketing methods.
Help Your SEO With Social Activity
Many don’t yet realize that social media activity can be helpful in supporting search engine rankings on Google and Bing. Both of these search engines embed social media updates, profiles, and even comments for various social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and LinkedIn. The more active your profile and engagement is compared to competitors, the more likely you are to get more traffic and leads from search engines than them, all other things being equal.
Target High-Value Audiences
The quality and accuracy of Facebook Ads targeting is why Facebook is such a massive and profitable company. Nearly all of their revenue is generated from ads. This tells you a lot about how valuable Facebook Ads, and social media ads in general, can be to businesses. The fact that the user data is so accurate is what allows you to target people based on behaviors, interests, topics, relationship status, pregnancy status, age, gender, and more. This combined with great ads and creative are what drives high returns.
Find New Customers & Audiences
With clean and quality audiences to target on social media, it’s a great place to efficiently test and learn more about new audiences in order to grow your market share. Some audiences will inevitably be better than others, so it’s important to monitor and make adjustments when necessary. Discovering new social media audiences will result in larger market share and increased revenue opportunities.
Claim Control Over Your Brand
Our experience with social media marketing allows us to create custom plans to meet your needs and budget requirements. You will have complete control over brand image and monthly budget while we handle execution and management of your social media marketing strategy. If there is anything that you would like adjusted to fit your brand better, we can accommodate immediately.
Build Trust In Your Community
Social media is very personal, so it’s important to build trust in the community when people think of or find your brand. You can do this by becoming a business that is an educational resource, story teller, and engaging. When producing content client testimonials, case studies, before and afters, etc. can help to build trust in your brand. Over time this builds healthy, long lasting customer relationships.
Many Platforms to Reach Customers
Not everyone frequents the same social media platforms. This is why you need to have cross-platform marketing in place and reach people on multiple platforms, and those who move between platforms. We have the team and tools to build a robust organic and paid social media marketing campaign that will maximize reach and return across multiple channels. We support Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, & Twitter accounts.
Track Your Investment
All social media marketing ad platforms have intelligent tracking solutions (pixels) that you can add to your website and landing pages. This allows for complete tracking of all valuable actions on your website or app. Tracking is essential to any marketing campaign and we do not recommend advertising without adding a pixel to your website or app. These pixels also allow for optimization of your campaigns and help the algorithm better target users to reach your goals.
Highly Efficient When Done Correctly
Social media can be deceivingly simple. It’s not that complex to just post some stuff on social media, boost a few posts and then call it a day. However, that’s not social media marketing with a purpose. We provide solutions to businesses who are serious about driving maximum revenue from their social channels. We analyze organic and paid campaigns and then routinely optimize and improve to increase revenue results.
Maximize ROI In Your Market
Advertising and marketing on social media is incredibly cost effective. You can run ads that reach thousands of users in your ideal audience for very low prices. When you compare the total reach, results and cost of a social media ad campaign it’s hard to compete, other than Google Search.

How Social Media Marketing Works
Social media marketing is made of 2 major areas, social media management and social media advertising. Both are important in their own way, and complement each other. This is why it’s best to include the 2 into one campaign to maintain cohesion in the messaging.
Social Media Management
Social media management involves the process of creating content, writing posts, and scheduling those posts organically across social media platforms. It also includes analyzing and learning from old posts to improve upon overall organic social media performance. If certain types of posts are doing well, it’s highly important to know and learn about this to leverage in the future. We use a variety of social media tools to help us monitor and schedule social media posts.
Social Media Advertising
Social media advertising is the process of creating ads that target a specific audience to generate a desired result. Ideally, it is a constantly improving, profitable, and repeatable system. The goal should be to drive specific actions on your website or landing pages. Desired business actions could range from clicking the “Add to Cart” button to scheduling an appointment. Professional social media strategy places your ads in front of the right people at the right moment to drive the most return on your investment.
Why Social Media Advertising is Important
Organic reach is constantly declining as revenue and profits are front of mind for big social media giants and their stockholders. This is why it’s critical to have a knowledgeable and efficient team handling your ad campaigns. When an algorithm update happens it won’t sink your business and you’ll always have an efficient, scalable source of leads to harvest from paid ads.
Advantages of Social Media Advertising
Social Media Advertising allows you to create a virtually endless supply of new customers. This isn’t something anyone can do, but if you understand how social media advertising works you can drastically increase your lead generation and client acquisition.
5 Key Advantages:
- Endless Prospecting Opportunities
- Find New Interested Audiences
- Promote Your Services
- Retarget To Warm Audiences
