Many Reasons Why Your Business Should Be Using St Louis Social Media Marketing
- Increased revenue is possibly the most important reason for having a Facebook or a Twitter page for your company. Reports have shown that Facebook fans typically spend more than non-fans. This means that if you have a Facebook page with fans or if you have followers on your Twitter account, those customers are going to spend more on your brand. In fact, fans of your brand will spend, on average, nearly an extra $72 per year than non-fans or non-followers. Facebook fans of McDonald’s, for instance, spent an average of $310.18 per year whereas those who did not subscribe to the McDonald’s Facebook page only spent an average of $150.39 per year.
- Having a Facebook page or Twitter account also helps your company build brand loyalty and awareness. By having one or both of these pages updated on a regular basis, your brand’s followers and fans will be exposed to your company more often. Updating the status on your company’s Facebook page or sending out a “tweet” a few times a week or month will keep your brand fresh in the memory of those who follow you on Facebook or Twitter. The more often your brand is shown to them, the more they will remember it when they are in need of the products or the services that you provide. In fact, research shows that customers are more loyal to the brand that they follow on their social media pages than non-fans.
- Connecting with your customers is another benefit of having a Facebook or Twitter page for your business. Do you have a special promotion going on? Is there a special event coming up soon? Within just a few seconds, you can let all of your fans and followers know about anything special that is going on. This opens up the opportunities for contests, sales, and special offers just for Facebook and Twitter followers and much more.
- When you have a lot of followers on Facebook and Twitter, you increase the potential for website traffic, too. Simply include a link on each tweet or status for your followers to click on and watch the web traffic spike each time you update your social media page.
- Facebook pages are also ideal for businesses because they allow you to see what your customers think about your brand or product or services. Are you thinking of doing a promotion? You can post a status that asks your fans what they think of the promotions. Your fans and customers can post comments on the things that you post to your company’s page and they will likely be more honest because of the anonymity that Facebook and social media websites provide. As such, you get a good idea about what people are saying about your business and the things you are doing in order to make the best experience for your customers.
- Your Facebook page can also help you gain new customers. If your fans are satisfied with your brand or the products and services that you provide, they are more likely to share your company with their friends. Every time you post something on your company’s page, each one of your followers has the option of “sharing” it with their friends and followers. This increases your company’s exposure exponentially to an ever growing audience.
- Increased web popularity is a great benefit of having a Facebook and Twitter page for your brand. When consumers want to know information these days, they head straight for the Internet. Few people still use the phone book because it’s easier to simply type in a company name and find out everything you need to know about it in a matter of seconds. You can even read reviews of the company so you can shop and compare. By increasing your company’s web presence, you put your name out there with the rest of them so you can compete in today’s online-dominated world.
- It’s natural. Not only do you get natural links without any discernible pattern, your website is exposed to large groups of people in a spontaneous fashion. This differs from paid advertising which has overt commercial overtones.
- It’s defensible. Once successfully mastered, social communities can be a great source of web traffic on top of any traffic you are already receiving from search engines. While you can’t easily increase your search engine traffic, social media traffic can be very easily controlled through strategic marketing.
- It’s low-cost/high returns. If done by yourself, costs are limited to only time and perhaps the expenses involved in hiring a freelance programmer/designer. The benefits will often exceed the cost. It would take you thousands of dollars to buy many links; social media has the ability to give you that for free.
- It complements other efforts. Social media marketing & optimization is usually community-specific. It doesn’t interfere with any other methods of getting traffic to your website. It can and will fit perfectly with an advertising campaign targeting other websites or search engines.
