Why Social Media?
Social media is more economical than traditional forms of marketing and with 54% of browsers using social media to research a product before they buy, can your business afford not to be utilising this key channel? Using Social media allows your business to increase your brand presence and communication with your customers. Unlike other marketing mediums, social media allows you to have a two-way conversation with your audience. Using platform analytics, you will find out what your customers think of your business, your competitors, and your industry. You will become engaged with your customer base and you will learn to create content for them that they want to consume – this may be in the form of a blog, infographic, video or a simple post to the right person at the right time.

Why you might need to use
paid social media
A well thought out, and well executed organic social media strategy will help to meet your objectives, however in recent years many of the social networks’ algorithms have shifted, resulting in fewer people seeing organic content. This is where paid social advertising comes into its own.
Paid social allows you to amplify your message to a wider audience, outside your immediate network, that can be pre-qualified thanks to a range of targeting options. Whether your ads budget is large or modest, we will be able to create a bespoke campaign to help achieve your goals.
Our experts will work with you to agree your objective, whether that is to increase the number of followers, to promote specific content or to drive traffic to your website. We then agree the budget and the demographic of who you want to target. Finally, we recommend the type of advert, e.g. text, image, video, carousel, etc and the channel or channels that we believe are the most appropriate to promote your business on.
