It’s evident that social media is an important part of the online experience. But we understand that you and/or your colleagues are still not convinced. Social media can seem like wasted efforts. It’s just a trend. It’s only for companies going after millennials. Demographics like age no longer disqualify social media from the online marketing mix. An effective social media strategy is discovering which platforms your customers are using — whether they’re 18-29 or 50+ — and building a social presence there. Social media gives your organization the opportunity to engage with prospects by answering their questions and delivering valuable content.
Social media works in the attract stage of the inbound marketing methodology. By posting relevant industry news, promoting offers, sharing educational blogs, and showcasing your work environment, your ideal customers will be exposed to conversion paths, while getting to know your company culture.
