The Role of Social Media in Marketing

Benefits of Using Social Media in Your Marketing Strategy

- Build brand awareness
- Generate leads

Each of these goals requires a different approach to social media marketing.
Build Brand Awareness
Social media can build brand awareness by using different platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Twitter. This is done by creating content that is relevant to the potential consumers, implementing effective marketing tactics in order to reach these potential consumers and then measuring how they interact with the content. These metrics can be used to see what content resonates most with consumers and which platforms have the most traffic.
Engage in Conversation
Social media allows for companies, brands and people to interact with consumers directly through various online platforms where conversations can take place.
This is done by sharing information about a company or brand, engaging in conversations about their services and products, or engaging in conversations that lead to interactions with the company. In turn, companies can learn how they can better serve their customers by gauging reactions and feedback.
