Social media provides an extensive pool of potential customers, with Facebook alone boasting of over 2 billion active users monthly. With effective social media marketing campaigns, your business can enjoy a range of benefits, including enhanced brand awareness, more traffic and leads, better relationships, and ultimately more sales. As you work towards successful social media marketing, however, you need to factor in the rapid changes that pop up now and then to ensure you are on top of the game. Here is a look at some of the must-include social media tips to supercharge your campaigns.

Live stream

Live videos allow you to facilitate immediate connections, not to mention enhanced credibility as people interact directly with your brand. The instant interaction helps you to create better relationships, not to mention the relatable feeling that lets you show your brand’s personality. Live streaming offers authenticity as it feels almost like face-to-face communication with immediate responses.

Social media contests

With the readily available tools, you can craft an irresistible social media contest in line with your goals. The secret, however, is offering value to your target audience. If you provide tremendous value, more users will be more than happy to do the heavy lifting. Social media contests can quickly enhance your online visibility as well as improve your engagements, leading to brand awareness, generation of quality leads, and increased sales.

Visual and voice search options

You may have already included voice search in your social media campaigns, but did you know that visual search is also quickly catching up?  Voice search works well since not everyone is patient enough to read through your pages, and as the trend continues to gain favor, visual search is also catching up. With an image upload, your users get a chance to find specific information to ease their decision making.

Chatbots and AL

Chatbots eases your social media marketing efforts, not to mention 24/7 availability. With advanced chatbots, you can address your users’ needs, such as guiding them as they navigate through various pages. This eases their shopping experience without having to wait for you to get online, especially during odd hours.  With AL, moreover, you can study customers’ behaviors and offer a personalized experience, resulting in quality leads generation and increased sales.

Minimize salesy posts

Running promotions is fun, but don’t forget the “social” in social media. Instead of sounding salesy, tailor your campaigns to foster better relationships. With a salesy approach, you will lose a significant following as people are no longer interested in being sold to and instead value informative content that eases their decision-making process. With informative information, your brand builds trust and confidence, tipping more followers in your favor. This facilitates your lead generation efforts, and with an effective strategy, enhances the conversion rate.

Quality images

Images help to enhance your social media post’s performance, especially noting that only a few people are patient enough to read through a lengthy post. Complementing your posts with captivating images works wonders, but they have to be quality images.

Social media marketing can be overwhelming, especially with the rapidly emerging trends. The good news is, with reputable and reliable marketing services, you can supercharge your campaigns and gain an edge in the highly-competitive market. With their experience and expertise, you can identify the most practical trends and implement industry-specific measures to keep up with the changes.
