In the world that we live in now where everything is completely run by and through social media, it should be no surprise that many brands and companies are looking to it for guidance. From networks to firms, companies use social media to grow their audience.

So if you are a person or a brand-new company looking to get a loyal following, you need to understand the basics of social media. Fortunately, this article is here to help. Sit back and read this with a set of fresh eyes.

Analyse Social Media Engagement

Analyse Social Media Engagement

Before you hire a social media team to do all the work for you, take in a moment to relax. Assess where you are at the moment as honestly as possible in terms of your interaction with the audience, target consumer and demographic age that use and buy your products. Analyse your stats and come up with a clear idea of who you want to target, who your demographic is and how you want to sell (sales strategy). Only then should you hire a social media team.

If you are already on some social media platform, it is your duty to decide whether you should continue on that platform or start your social media marketing all over again.  Typically, if you already have a following on social media and are doing well, it is best not put an end to your existing following—simply do a makeover to create a better look for your amazing followers. Website redesigning is an impressive way of showing gratitude to your loyal followers.


Characterize your Consumer

For any business to prosper, a clear understanding of its target demographic is necessary. Work on clarifying your target audience before diving into anything else.

Indeed, consumer or customer identification is a big thing. Your marketing and social media campaigns will be based on the wants and needs of your target market.


Form a Tag Line and a Mission Statement

Taglines are very important. They are the first thing people see and will be the first thing that comes to their minds when they think about your brand. Eventually, your company will be recognized first and foremost from its tagline. Therefore, your tagline should be both original and catchy. Furthermore,  taglines should not be too long nor too short— use the perfect amount of words to convey what your brand is about.

A mission statement will also get you far since people are more likely to be loyal when they understand your intentions as a company. Explain what you aim to provide and what you will deliver (especially in comparison to other similar brands). Mission statements should convey your ideals and goals in the simplest way possible—they lay the groundwork for your brand success.


Identify What Makes You Different

Identify what makes you different

Explain what makes you different from other online companies and why people should choose you. Describe your merits, ideals, and best qualities. In addition, explain what you are going to provide them—for example, you might provide them with something that will make them choose you (i.e. free or fast delivery).

Make your qualities and aims relatable. Consumers appreciate companies who give them the importance and explain things in actionable ways. Communicate directly using uncomplicated words.

Customers have questions to ask and want more information. Some customers want to lodge complaints or express gratitude. Either way, it is the job of your social media marketing team to make sure that you have a secure, up and running system that can be used to interact with your daily customers.

Along with a system to manage customer queries, posting images, videos and skits help engage your audience. Create blogs and spaces for customers to post and share reviews. Basically, creating anything that could help create excellent customer experience is the way to go. And in case you are wondering, customer experience is about being attentive to people’s needs, making them feel important and valuable.
