Any company worth it’s salt has an online presence these days, but many lack the knowledge and time to fully exploit social and digital marketing platforms.
It’s time to ask yourself a simple question – will your digital and social strategy bring more benefit to the business than the effort taken to create it? The answer should be a resounding yes. But when time is tight and resources already burdened how can you make sure that this is the case?
In fast-moving online world, where today’s Snapchat is yesterday’s Facebook, it’s crucial for businesses to call on outside help from the experts. Here’s why:
1. Time: You can free up time to focus on the day to day running of your business
2. Expertise: Using an expert to carefully hone your strategy allows your brand to become known as an authority
3. Digging Deeper: An outsider may ask the ‘obvious questions’ about your business that you have forgotten to ask
4. Consistency: A qualified team can build a sleek, professional and above all consistent design across all of your social platforms
5. The notorious SEO: Its crucial to write content with SEO (search engine optimisation) in mind to widen your reach
6. Engagement: Ensure your customers feel part of your community
7. Targeting: Which social media channels are right for you and your client base?
8. Analytics : Shape your digital marketing strategy based on how people are reacting in real time.
9. Reach: Engage with both clients and prospective clients, creating ‘hot prospect’ lists
10. Long-term benefits : there may be a cost associated with hiring in outside help, but in the long run the payoff can be much greater
