How to Be Successful at Social Media Marketing

There is no universally-accepted way of executing a 100% successful social media marketing campaign. Purely because each campaign is (or at least should be) tailored to fit your business, goals and targets. Just because a social media campaign works for one organisation, that doesn’t necessarily guarantee you the same results or success.

Determining the success of social media ads and social media video marketing is down to a variety of tools, analytics and most importantly, a robust, cohesive strategy. Doing all of this will help boost your chances of success in the widely-competitive market of social media advertising, and Ginger Digital are here to help guide you through the whole process.

Firstly it’s important to look at the wide social media marketing business.

What is Social Media Marketing?

There’s no denying how vast social media has become. Billions of people worldwide are actively reacting, posting, sharing and engaging with content through social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn and many more. These sites are far more than just platforms to interact with friends and family. They have become effective (and essential) platforms for business owners to advertise to their prospects and target consumers.

That’s where the importance of social media marketing comes into play.

Social media marketing, put simply, is the process of creating content and distributing it (via individual social media platforms). This is done for the purposes of driving user engagement, building brand awareness and/or generating leads and sales.

How to Do Social Media Marketing Properly

Social media has proven itself to be a vital and efficient asset to modern businesses. But each business has its own individual targets, whether this is to improve its website visitors, achieve more impressions or boost sales. The targets are unique to each company, and by extension, the most effective social media marketing campaigns will differ from business to business.

Additionally each social media platform is different, but in many cases, video marketing is an essential piece of the puzzle. Here at Ginger Digital, we believe video is vital to all digital marketing campaigns.

The reality is that, if you’re set on growing your business through targeted social media video campaigns, you need to take note of these 5 tips.

Top 5 Social Video Tips

Social media tips

Have a plan

The first step to a successful social media campaign is to develop a detailed, thorough marketing plan. What do you want to achieve with this campaign? How are you going to accomplish this? How can you analyse your results and track your progress? Going in blindly and hoping for the best is almost guaranteed to backfire.

Establish clear goals

Companies that struggle to measure their ROI through social media video campaigns often haven’t defined specific, tangible goals. To measure ROI effectively, you should establish these goals and build your campaign around specifically accomplishing these goals.

Understand your metrics

Commit to understanding the importance of your metrics. Whether this is reactions, comments, shares or views, think carefully about the content that is actually going to achieve the metric targets you’ve set.

Think quality over quantity

Don’t post content for the sake of it. Low-quality, poorly-thought-out posts tend to reach a fraction of your target audience, and as a result, engagement suffers. Instead, focus on the quality of your content, and establish a reason for posting. Social media ads are there to act as a voice for your business, so they should be used wisely.

Create authentic content

In this day and age, people crave unique and original content. This doesn’t just mean using video (although that is very much the future of social media marketing) but think carefully about how your social media content can reflect your brand, messages, strapline, values and more. People who relate to your content on an emotional level are more likely to engage with your social media ads and buy from you. Content and brand go hand-in-hand for effective social media marketing ideas. If these 5 tips resonate with you, you might like to know that Ginger Digital can help you achieve all of the above.
