3.96 billion people use social media in the world.
Let’s allow some time for that number to sink in. More than half of the world’s populations, use social media on a daily basis. Therefore, the value of social media in advertising and marketing is undeniable.
Social media is important because it allows you to reach, nurture, and engage with your target audience — no matter their location. When a business can use social media to connect with its audience, it can use social media to generate brand awareness, leads, sales, and revenue.
However, when using social media, to promote your business, there a few things you need to bear in mind.
Your business has to provide and upload, high-quality, high-value content and be consistent about it. Consistency in both frequency of social media engagement, as well as the quality and design of the content.
Let’s discuss the quality aspect of your content. As we said previously, it is highly important to offer high-quality content to your social media page. It allows you to solidify your position as a go-to destination for your customers, regardless the field that you are active in. It allows you to achieve your business goals, such as brand recognition and audience engagement. Your content has to be in line with your audience’s interests and goals. A well thought-out, content strategy will allow you to meet your customer’s expectations and build long-lasting and efficient relationships. You will need to communicate to the customers your brand’s uniqueness and your content has to able to reflect that. Without a content strategy your content will lack purpose. You will not be able to maintain an effective communication channel with your audience.
Content quality is not the only aspect of an effective social media strategy. Content consistency is another equally important aspect. Your content needs to maintain a uniform tone and a balanced voice and style. Your brand is essentially your business, personified. The way your business looks, sounds and acts in other words. Therefore, the content produced for your brand has to be consistent.Lacking in quality, quantity or schedule consistency, confuses your customers.
Visual consistency is a key element in social media advertising and promotion. If you want your target audience, to understand what your business is about and build a meaningful relationship, you have to communicate your brand’s value. The design of your brand, the colour, tone and branding will dictate how your audience perceives the value you might add through your products and services.
According to Techipedia, consistent brands tend to worth 20% more than those with inconsistencies in their messaging.
