Social media management is a service which provides social media posting, strategy, audience research, audience building and reporting.
The aim is to help the client business to grow their presence online through gaining more followers via social media, then engaging and nurturing those followers to become fans or customers.
Social media posting is a simplified version of social media management. It aims to help business owners who want more control over their social media presence, but don't have time to keep coming with original ideas to post to social media every week. With the posting service, you simply let us create original social media content up to 7 days per week, using your photography (or we'll source photos for you), and we'll write engaging text to go along with it, and use the best-researched hashtags where appropriate. We'll post these posts to each of your nominated channels, with text that's tweaked to be appropriate to the platform.
It's especially useful to small businesses, startups and mid-sized businesses who do not have the resources to employ a full-time social media manager.
Will it be suitable for my business?
There's every chance that outsourcing your social media will prove very cost-effective. Like other digital services, it's a service which is often best left to professional suppliers rather than trying to manage the service yourself.
Wondering which social networks are right for your business? The golden rule to win business via social media is to be where your customers are. Let's take a look at some of the biggest choices for business social media.
In the UK there are about 26 million Instagram users. About 75% of those are in the 18-35 age bracket. So it's a platform popular with younger users and millennials. It's also famously popular with influencers.
As a primarily visual platform, Instagram lends itself particularly well to businesses who sell things that can be photographed beautifully such as food, clothing, furniture, home and garden supplies. It's great for B2C companies who provide in-home services.
It is not quite as well suited to businesses who provide professional services or B2B businesses.
The giant of the social media scene, Facebook has well over 2 billion users worldwide. A general purpose platform which supports photo, video, text content and live streaming.
Users on Facebook are mostly de-anonymised and use their accounts under their own names. A great all-round platform for businesses whose content can be delivered via images or video or by interacting in Facebook groups. Many businesses use Facebook Live for immediate impact.
Facebook also has a very mature advertising platform, allowing tight audience definition and good value for ad spend.
Pinterest is a platform almost entirely dedicated to images. If your business sells things that can be photographed beautifully then Pinterest could be the platform for you.
Businesses which thrive on Pinterest include interior designers, artists, retailers of home and garden products, clothing, furniture, food and drink.
Businesses which may be better off choosing a different platform include professional services such as legal services, B2B services etc.
Where the other networks listed above are very well suited for B2C businesses, LinkedIn is the platform of choice for B2B marketing. With a particular focus on person-to-person marketing, professionals and service providers can be discovered on LinkedIn easily.
We recommend posting regularly to LinkedIn to strengthen your company's branding and culture. It's also a great way to demonstrate your company's values and ethics, which can help with recruitment if you're looking for new people.
We usually recommend posting to your business's company page on LinkedIn, but it's also a great idea to repost these updates from your personal account too, since LinkedIn works great as a person-to-person network. More people follow and engage with personal posts than company posts, for most businesses.
Not always thought of as a social network (although Google My Business grew from Google+, an early attempt at social network from Google), Google My Business is an essential place to post updates, offers, new services. Especially if your business has a local physical presence, collects Google reviews, or you service a certain geographical area. Posting regularly to Googly My Business will enhance your local presence and increase your chances of being listed in the local search results on Google, so its great for SEO.
The leviathan of social networks, and still true to its original mission of short content updates (now supporting up to 280 characters per post), Twitter is often a good place for businesses to announce updates.
If you have a Twitter it's essential to keep it up to date so that your fans and followers, plus potential customers, can stay in the loop and engage with your brand.
Because of the restricted character, we usually create separate posts specifically for Twitter with short, snappy and direct messaging plus a strong call to action.
All our social media posts are created and written by our team based in London, UK.
