Social media is no longer just a place to go and well, be sociable, or to share weekend selfies and holiday snaps. Social media is now a powerful tool for advertisers and businesses. So much so that the powers that be behind the social media giants have tweaked and amended their algorithms consistently over the years to ensure that advertorial content not only plays a huge part within social media but that it is paid for. Advertising on social media has become a big business that almost any company can benefit from, as long as they are prepared to pay to play. So whether you are medical malpractice attorneys or a one-man band selling candles being on social media will have a plethora of benefits you cannot afford to miss out on.

Raise awareness

Although the requirement of paying is becoming a must for social media advertisers it remains one of the most cost-effective ways to increase brand awareness. Creating sociable social media pages that add value to an audience and interact with users is a great way of getting your brand or business on users’ screens and on the radar. 

Increase traffic to your website

Whatever your business chances are you will have a website. If you do not have social media the traffic to your website may well be limited to your usual customers or dependant on other digital marketing efforts. Yet being on social media will allow you to reach a wider audience and promote your website to that audience. The more traffic your website gets the more sales it is likely to achieve. 

Customer service

Social media allows you to showcase your impeccable customer service. Customer service is key for a brand looking to build customer loyalty and a stellar reputation. Customers today are quick to turn to social media when they have a complaint or query that cannot be answered by more traditional means. More often than not this will be done publicly for other customers or potential customers to see. If you want to get a handle on this and publicly display your customer services skills then do not shy away from social media. Witnessing other users’ positive experiences will install confidence and trust in your brand, which will in turn act as positive advertising. 

Cost-effective

Marketing can be expensive. Big companies do not think twice about spending millions on their advertising budgets and even smaller companies will have a substantial amount set aside for marketing. One of the great things about social media is it is absolutely free to set up social media profiles and use the service. As mentioned, there has been a notable shift in social media marketing for businesses and while it is free to set up it is no longer free to advertise and get your content seen. Despite the introduction of paid advertising social media still remains an incredibly cost-effective way to advertise your business. For spending often modest amounts your social media reach can be considerable. Social media advertising can often give you a far larger reach for less expense than traditional advertising methods.
