Should I set goals for my social media profiles?

Yes, this is one of the key factors we always recommend to our clients. Always ask yourself what your aim is by following a social media plan, whether that’s generating enquiries or boosting brand awareness.

What impact can social media marketing have on my business?

Social media marketing has a variety of positive effects on your business. By getting your brand out on social media, not only are you improving brand awareness & identity, but are also increasing your reach to potential leads. Here are some more reason why social media is important:

  • Builds brand loyalty

Which social media platforms should my campaign be using?

When it comes to social media platforms, most people recommend ‘the more the merrier’. However, when it comes to brand development and social media marketing strategies, always bare in mind the audience you trying to target, as this will vary among all social media channels. Below are some of the most popular platforms you can use:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • LinkedIn
  • Pinterest
  • YouTube
  • Snapchat
  • TikTok

Which would you recommend we do for Facebook – boosted posts or ads?

It’s always good to have a mix of Facebook boosted posts and ads, however for a majority of our social clients, we’ve seen a greater success rate for accounts who use Facebook ads rather than boosted posts.

Although, this is completely dependant on your social campaigns aims and objectives. If you’re looking to increase the reach or engagements of one of your organic posts, we’d suggest boosting!

When is the best time to post and how many times a week should I be posting?

Scheduling your posts is key if you’re looking to maximise the number of likes, comments and shares you receive. We usually recommend posting on your social channels on lunch hour and/or hours after work, as this is when audiences are most likely to be active on social media channels.

We suggest posting between 3-4 times a week on your social media platforms. However, if you struggle with creating content or having the time to post, a social media agency is a great way to remove this from yourselves, creating and uploading the posts for you.
