Management tools

Some management tools that are used for social media management offer statistics as the part

of the services integrated within the account. If this is the case, you can use this feature to track

the performance of social networks, without the need to analyze the insights of each network

 

separately.

Metrics for social media marketing

Social analytics refers to the evaluation of your social media accounts in order to determine the

efficiency of the strategy you are using. It consists of measuring, analyzing and interpreting the

data from social analytics.

The following list contains the metrics that you should be paying attention to, as those can help

with analysis of the data:

• Website report – This includes statistics from your website which highlights the

traffic and conversions originating from social media accounts.

• Customer response – When customers provide feedback and their response, related

to the service you have provided, you might get the idea to which extent they

benefited from social media.

131

• Reach and virality – The data you get from social media statistics and trackable links

can also provide general insights into what kind of social media approach works

best.

The benefits of analyzing insights

Social analytics helps you determine the current trends and tendencies in the world of social

media, which is changing constantly. Being up-to-date with the latest developments can help

you increase the effectiveness of social media marketing, as well as to make sure that you are

using the best practices and recommendations related to social media websites. This way, not

only will the strategy be up-to-date, but the overall social media approach will follow the

current guidelines.

In addition, if you use social networks to promote sales on your website or in an online store,

using social insights will be extremely helpful as you will find out which social network

generates the most revenue. As a result, you will determine if you should improve or change

your approach on certain networks, or if you should perhaps completely give up using a certain

network, due to low response. Furthermore, you will also get the data about the users, such as

their location, gender or age, which will help you with determining your target audience.

Automation and Social

Media

133

21. Automation and Social Media

Social media marketing is a complex discipline that requires daily effort from your end.

However, some parts of social media marketing can be automated in order to save you time

and supplement your strategy.

What is automation?

The process of automation on social media refers to scheduling posts in order to be published

in a certain moment in the future. This type of action helps you be active and keep your social

account updated regularly. Some social networks allow scheduling options on the platform

itself, such as Facebook.

Automation tools

On the other hand, if there is no option to schedule a post this way, you can use different

online scheduling tools, such as HootSuite. This tool for example helps you integrate several

social media accounts, and manage posting activity from the dashboard. You can choose the

exact date and time when to schedule a certain post, and you can even schedule

simultaneously on several social networks at once.

134

There are other automation tools with similar functions and the greatest importance of these

tools is that they allow managing of multiple social media accounts from one place, which is

especially useful when you have a lot of social media accounts to manage.

Besides tools for managing and scheduling, there are automation tools that can completely take

care of posting for you. In this case, you should link your blog feed for example and the tool will

automatically post when it detects that new content has been published on your blog.

Benefits of social media automation

The major benefit of social media automation is the possibility to save time and optimize the

time you are going to invest in social media activity. This is especially important in cases you

have limited amount of time available for this task. There is no doubt that social media

presence is important, but sometimes it will be difficult to prioritize this task. So, having

automation tools can helpwith maintaining your social activity on a certain level, while you are

focused on other tasks.

Besides saving time, another benefit of social media automation is the possibility to keep your

accounts active even when you are away from the office, for example during the weekend.

Some studies confirm that the greatest number of users log in during the weekend, which

135

increasesengagement opportunities and chances to convert the users. Consequently, you

should make sure that you publish content on social media at weekends. Scheduling posts to be

published during the weekend can really help being active on weekends, as well as enjoying in

your days off work.

Trying to reach audience from different geographical regions may be a part of your business

and it might be difficult for you to optimize the posting activity in this case. For example, it

might be night at your place of residence, while it is morning for your target audience. In this

case, automation can help you reach your audience in the right time, regardless the time of the

day in your country.

Disadvantages of social media automation

When using automation on social media you have to be careful not to overuse this method.

High level of automation will cause your account to look a bit spammy and artificial. Users

expect to see real people behind the social media account, someone they can contact,

someone they can trust. If you use too much of automation, users might find it difficult to

establish the connection, which will result in low level of engagement.

Furthermore, using automation prevents you from being current and keeping up with events.

Regardless if we talk about a global event or situation you should comment on or if we talk

about down time of your website, you will fail at reaching users at the right time if you

completely rely on automation.

Although automation should be an inseparable part of social media marketing and as such, it is

a very helpful approach, but in the same time you have to be very careful when using it. You

want to make the most out of automation, to use it to supplement your social media

marketing, without the risk of being considered as spam. What you need to have in mind that

social network users expect to connect with others on social networks, so you have to plan

being actually present on social networks in order to respond and interact with your followers.

Types of Marketing

22. Social Media and Other Types of Marketing

Understanding the importance of social media marketing is important, as well as its usage in

the modern business. However, in order to fully grasp social media marketing as inseparable

part of overall marketing strategy of a company, you have to understand how social media

marketing is connected with other types of online marketing.

Social media marketing and content marketing

These two types of marketing are closely linked as they complement each other. Content

marketing refers to creating content that is supposed to attract and engage the audience.

Content can be presented in various formats, such as blog articles, presentations, videos, ebooks, etc. The main goal of content marketing is to get website visitors interested in your

company, by offering something for free, regardless if it is tutorial, hangout, etc. In order to

succeed in this approach, content has to be of high-quality, original and helpful.

After you create the content as a part of content marketing, you will need a medium to

promote that content, so this is where you reach out to social media marketing. One of the best

ways to promote your content is through your social media channels. Obviously, the benefits of

such promotion will depend on the popularity of your social accounts.

Besides sharing content yourself, you should encourage your website’s visitors to share your

content on their own social media accounts, which helps you with increasing the viral potential

of the content. Social sharing buttons are usually used inside the content, such as the buttons

at the top of the article, as a way to enable users to easily share the content they find

interesting and helpful. The potential number of times the content is going to be shared is

closely linked to the quality of the content, which is why we have stressed out the importance

of developing and publishing high-quality content.

Content marketing greatly relies on the usage of social media for promotion, but social media

marketing also counts on content marketing for providing content that is to be shared on

regular basis in order to keep a social account active. Since being active and sharing quality

content is an important part of social media marketing, using content developed as a part of

content marketing strategy is crucial for having something to publish on your social media

accounts. You can always share content from other blogs and websites, in order to keep the

level of diversity and ensure that your followers are getting the most useful content you can

find and recommend, but it is also important to share your own content, as this is the only way

138

to get traffic to your blog or website, where you will get the chance to convert the visitors into

clients.

Social media marketing and email marketing

Email marketing refers to establishing communication with prospective clients or advertisers via

emails. The process of reaching people online is conducted through various email campaigns,

where you can try to achieve numerous goals, such as trying to sell, announcing a discount in

your store, asking for other websites to link to your website, etc. In each of these cases,

regardless if you are trying to reach individuals or companies, you will need email addresses to

establish this kind of communication.

There are different strategies that are used in email marketing that will enable you to get

emails of the people you want to contact, and one of them is through the usage of social media.

In this case, these two types of online marketing collide and social media marketing becomes a

tool to be used in the process of collecting email addresses and generating a list of prospective

clients.

The approach used in social media marketing for this purpose involves using online promotions

hosted by an online application. There are numerous online applications that can be used in the

purpose of hosting a promotion. The idea behind this approach is the following. You announce

a promotion where you will be awarding your social followers with a certain discount or gift,

and in return, the participants will have to fill in the form where they would provide their email

address. This way, the users will be encouraged to provide this kind of information, as they

would like to obtain the prize. From your part, you will be getting emails in a completely

legitimate way, along with the users’ permission to contact them via the email address they

have provided.

Social media marketing and search engine marketing

Search engine marketing refers to the process of search engine optimization (or organic reach)

and to the paid advertising (or paid reach). Both of these types of marketing help you with

website positioning and reaching customers when they are conducting a search using a specific

search engine. Choosing either of these two options has its own benefits and disadvantages.

While the organic reach requires much more time in optimizing and positioning, paid reach

requires no such time to be invested, but it does require a budget in order to afford paid

campaign. Organic positioning might be easier for popular brands and those with several years

being present online. On the other hand, paid reach enables anyone to get positioned, without

139

much effort. In addition, paid advertising ensures you get the top position in the search result,

while there is no such guarantee with organic reach.

Social media primarily affects organic reach, as the latest updates of the search engine

algorithm have included social networks in the search results. This way you try to look

something up using a search engine and you will most definitely see the social networks results

related to the search on the first page of the search results. Obviously, popularity of the

account, as well as a description, activity and influence of the social account will affect these

results. For example, if you look up a famous clothing brand in Google, you will see that the

official website is shown as the first result, but it is immediately followed by accounts on social

networks, which include Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.
