What is Social Media Marketing?

Created as a way for people to connect, social media platforms quickly realized they could also:

  • Help people find the products and services they needed.
  • Help companies extend their reach and take their businesses to new levels.

Today, most social media platforms have built-in services so people can shop, review, and seek customer support, all within their platform of choice.

Social media marketing is a form of internet marketing. It involves creating and sharing content on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to meet your marketing strategy goals. Activities include things like posting videos, content, and surveys to drive audience engagement. There’s also paid social media advertising.

How Social Media Helps You Meet Digital Marketing Goals

As part of your online marketing plan, social media helps:

  • Increase website traffic
  • Improve conversions
  • Raise brand awareness
  • Build customer trust
  • Improve interactions with key audiences. The larger and more engaged your target audience is on social media, the easier it is for your business to achieve its other marketing goals.

What’s Trending in Social Media Marketing

Here are some of the current techniques businesses are using on social media as part of their marketing strategy.

  • Instagram’s Highlights stories are being used to make messages clearer, as people no longer have to look at each photo; they can jump right to what they’re looking for.
