With a good social media content strategy you can generate leads, that is, leads. Since they have expressed some kind of interest in the product or the company they are easily convertible users into customers. They also provide contact details that can be used to send more respective information to the company such as newsletters.

Social networks have changed a lot in recent times and with them the way in which users use them. It is important to know the audience of our company well in order to direct our
social media content strategy
towards them. Knowing what they like, what their lifestyle is, among other data will help us with our publications.

Social media has the power to influence the profitability of a business. In fact, more than half of the salespeople who have maintained social activity for a minimum of two years have indicated that it visibly helped them improve sales. Many of the platforms have created ad blocks that make it easier than ever for audiences to shop on the spot. With this we can redirect the traffic to our website and end up generating some conversion.

First we must create our own style for our brand, an image for social networks. Not only with our logo, but with corporate colors with which we feel identified. In addition, the way we communicate will be very important. Depending on which network we have a presence in, we will have to develop strategies focused on that account. It is not the same to publish for Facebook, than for Twitter or Instagram. They are very different networks and each one follows different methodologies.

Strategies for social media content

Once we have already determined our style and where we will publish we must go looking for some objectives. Although the ultimate goal is always to get a sale,it is essential that we do it through creating an image and a community around our brand. Because nowadays, purely commercial content is very outdated and users don’t want to see that.

On the other hand, liquid content is a very common practice. What is this? It consists of reusing the same content for different networks, but never with the same words or images. We can take out an article for our blog and advertise it on Instagram or talk a little about this content on our Facebook page.

We must determine how often we will publish to fill our calendar with all the strategies and ideas. It is very important to be clear about the objectives and how we want to get more followers to be able to focus the strategy and thus achieve sales.

Images and brand value

Followers are more likely to engage with a brand if they can be offered some kind of added value. That is why it is important that social networks show something special about the brand or product. Example of this can be found when making tutorials on how to use the product or how it would be put once it is used.

Including a social voice in a post gives the possibility to reach the audience and offers a better opportunity to connect with them individually. The humanization of brands is essential in social networks, because it helps to stand out in an ever-changing landscape. Tactics like incorporating humor and responding pertinently in real time can help with community growth. Showing the human team is another good technique, since users like to see who is working behind the brand.

One of the main advantages of social marketing is the ability to target the right people and not their approaches. Messages can be targeted by geographic targeting, by behavior, or by existing customer lists to name just a few. Equally useful is the ability to exclude audiences that a brand does not want to reach.

That is why it is important to have a voice that adapts to the audience, and, to be created, it must be based around the interests of the public. A brand’s voice is everything from emoji and punctuation to personality and tactics. The right levels for a brand can help attract audiences and increase community.

Publication calendar

Finally, it is time to manage the content on social networks by creating a calendar of publications according to the brand and events related to it. Planning a calendar is the best way to have all the content to be published organized. In this way, important dates will never be overlooked, both for users and for the company. Likewise, publications can be organized so that they come out with a constant periodicity and always with sense. In the same way you can see at any time what has been published, in what way and in which social network.

Publication calendars also save time, as work is done more efficiently and quickly. In addition, by allocating publications well in advance, sufficient time is provided for research and creation, ensuring that a deadline is rarely missed. Having a content calendar ensures that it is published precisely when the intention is made and ensures a certain level of quality.
