Social Media Content Strategy Tips

Posted on by Alan Palasco in SEO Leave a comment

SMMA structured system is important when it comes to dealing with content strategies for social media. It allows brand owners to push content that is not only informative but is also entertaining and useful. Here are four tips for creating content strategies:

  • Get to know the audience. Demographics such as age, gender, location, as well as general interests let brand owners figure out what kind of content will be valuable to its target customers. A simple thing to remember is that brands need to give what their customers need and want in order to keep their attention.
  • Discover what makes the audience respond or take action. By providing content that the audience cares about, customers are more likely to stick around and stay loyal to a brand.
  • Establish a content calendar. This allows brands to find out when and how often they should post. Don’t be contented with posting once a day; studies have shown that the more frequently a brand posts content on social media, the higher the rate of engagement is.
  • Utilize all of the brand’s assets. Cat memes and similar things are not necessarily the only things that can catch the audience’s attention. Sometimes, great ideas for content come from within a brand.

Things Brands Often Forget in SMM

Posted on by Alan Palasco in SEO Leave a comment

SMMSocial media marketing requires a structured strategy to ensure its effectiveness. However, there are things that often get overlooked. Here are some of the most commonly forgotten aspects in SMM:

  1. Putting Links to the Brand’s Website. Social media is a great platform to market a brand’s products and services; however, forgetting to provide a link to a company’s website may affect lead generation.
  2. Focusing on Platforms that Work Best for a Brand. With dozens of conduits to choose from including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Pinterest, some brands think that juggling everything will be the most beneficial tactic to go with. However, this only results in spreading themselves too thin. At best, use up to two platforms that work best for the brand.
  3. Email Marketing. Email is still an important element for online marketing. According to recent studies, customers are willing to share email content on social media networks.
  4. Youtube. Content strategy is important in SMM and video is a platform that can easily deliver messages, show off a brand’s personality, and boost search engine rankings.
  5. Putting Up Fresh Content. These days, content is considered the king of online marketing. However, some brands tend to forget to post updates regularly because of the myriad of things to focus on. However, not publishing fresh content affects the way a brand is built as well as a company’s SEO strategy.

Showing off to friends on Facebook might lead to losing friends outside of the social media site

Posted on by David Castillo in Facebook, News Leave a comment

FacebookDid you know that posting photos on Facebook can affect real-life relationships?

According to a new study from three British universities, frequent photo uploads on Facebook can damage real-life relationships.

The University of Birmingham, the University West of England, and the University of Edinburgh all pitched in to study the effects of frequently sharing images on Facebook.

“Increased frequency of sharing photographs of the self, regardless of the type of target sharing the photographs, is related to a decrease in intimacy,” said the report, which is called Tagger’s Delight.

The report also touched on Facebook brand pages and the subscribers who post on them. “While benefiting brand awareness and critical mass of a Facebook fan page for a brand, organization or cause, sharing photographs may be harmful to those asked to participate.”
