The Advantages of
Social Media Marketing
As a business owner, social media is the reality of modern marketing. It is a cost-effective, adaptable tool that provides any business the opportunity to communicate directly with their customers. In fact, social media marketing has become an industry standard, with 9 out of every 10 companies in the United States using social media platforms for marketing purposes.
Build Brand Awareness
Social media is a place of discovery, as it has become the primary method by which consumers learn about brands. Nowadays, there is almost no distinction between a brand and its social media account. They are one and the same. Therefore, regardless of whether you are attempting to establish or expand your brand, if you want to be successful, you must have a social media presence.
Increase Exposure and Loyalty
The digital medium has allowed for unprecedented levels of brand exposure, as it has dwarfed the reach of traditional marketing techniques. Companies can now communicate to anyone around that world that is connected to the internet. Not only this, but social media has also allowed for highly specific targeting of customer groups. For example, a flower company can send out social media ads the day before Valentine’s Day to married couples within its geographic area of service, providing people with the right option at the right time. Effective use of social media can increase customer satisfaction and loyalty. With 62% of customers stating they were more loyal to brands that engaged with them on social media.
