We achieve results by listening to and collaborating with our clients to find the strategy that works best. We have no one-size-fits-all solutions but a ton of experience.
There Is No Social Media Mandate
There is a lot of buzz around social media and it’s tempting to think that everybody needs to have a social presence. There is no social mandate!
Having a Facebook page where the last post is three months old is worse than not having a Facebook presence at all.
People often ask if they should be on Twitter or Instagram. The answer is: “We don’t know” until we’ve had a chance to assess your situation. In the absence of more information, it is impossible to make that call.
What I do know is, that you need to be aware what people are saying about your business online, or you can’t put it right or learn from it. A social media listening strategy IS a mandate.
To know if social media marketing is right for you depends, at a minimum, on your objectives, target audience, and resources. It’s important to consider opportunity costs and evaluate traditional marketing tactics against social media ones. Often a marketing mix of old and new is the best strategy.
MarketingXLerator is here to help you with the research, strategy development, and creation of an executable social media marketing plan.
Whether you want to learn how to build your own brand on social media or are a corporation striving to implement a social media strategy or campaign, we’d love to help you. Contact us via the web form below.
