Do you know what to include?
Goals and objectives guide your social media strategy to help you successfully connect with your customers.
In this article I’ll share what you need to include in your social media marketing strategy so it works from day one.
#1: Identify Business Goals
Every piece of your social media strategy serves the goals you set. You simply can’t move forward without knowing what you’re working toward.
Look closely at your company’s overall needs and decide how you want to use social media to contribute to reaching them.
You’ll undoubtedly come up with several personalized goals, but there are a few that all companies should include in their strategy—increasing brand awareness, retaining customers and reducing marketing costs are relevant to everyone.
Are you keeping up with the competition on Facebook?
Are you interested in knowing what is and isn’t working for your competitors?
All Facebook marketers are trying to see what content gets the best results.
In this article you’ll see how Facebook Insights’ ‘Pages to Watch’ can help you deliver content that engages your audience.
Why Is the ‘Pages to Watch’ Feature Important?
Facebook started rolling out Pages to Watch about a year ago, but the feature became a meaningful tool for tracking competitors with its second iteration–when it started appearing in page administrators’ Insights dashboards.
The first version only allowed you to see changes in competitors’ number of likes, which is hardly enough intel to sink one’s teeth into. There were other issues too.
Some marketers started receiving alerts from Facebook that a competing page had begun tracking their activity via the Pages to Watch module. That hardly helped build confidence in Facebook as a means of stealth monitoring.
Do you want to create a strong social media content strategy?
Are you looking for tools to help you analyze the content on your competitors’ social media profiles?
To create a content strategy that engages and motivates your audience, you need to do a comprehensive social media audit.
In this article I’ll share how to perform a social media audit to build a successful social media content strategy.
#1: Identify Your Competitors
Most businesses have already identified the main players in their industry by searching Google or social networks.
If you don’t already have a list of competitors at hand, just search for your site on SEMrush to see a list of related providers. SEMrush automatically sorts them by competition level based on how many common keywords the sites rank for in Google.
Do you want to improve the results of your social media marketing?
Measuring your social media performance is key to getting great results.
You need the right tools to measure those results.
In this article, we’ll go through 3 analytic tools to help improve your results on social media.
#1: Mention – Monitor Your Brand Anywhere on the Web
Mention is an excellent social media and web monitoring tool. You set up alerts based on keywords, and content related to those keywords is displayed through the Mention application or sent to you via email or social media.
When you monitor and track keywords, you can find potential business, build relationships with new people and respond quickly to situations that could damage your brand.
There are many monitoring tools available, but many either are very expensive or have limitations.
For example, you may use Google Alerts to track keywords mentioned on the web. However, I’ve found these alerts are not nearly as comprehensive as Mention. Google Alerts also does not provide the functionality that’s essential to manage and proactively respond to these alerts. Mention provides this functionality.
