social graphicAs a social media and content marketing specialist I am often asked numerous questions about social media marketing, since it is a relatively new tactic that has experienced unprecedented growth in a ridiculously short amount of time. The first question I’m almost always asked is, “Are you SURE, I need social? I mean I own a business that isn’t exactly exciting or riveting to my clients.” My answer is always YES! Regardless of how you feel your industry is perceived, there are 2.1 billion people who currently have social media accounts and 88% of them trust online reviews. At the very least, you must be a part of your own conversation.  If you’re still on the fence, no worries, I’ll persuade you in my next blog: 7 Reasons to Get off the Bench and Join the Social Media Game.

The next question is, “Ok, fine, but can’t I have the person I just hired out of college handle it? They’re constantly on Facebook!” This time my answer is a hard NO! Using social media for a personal reason is completely different than using it for business purposes. There are numerous marketing tactics provided by the various social platforms to not only build your brand awareness but to drive qualified leads and ultimately increase sales that aren’t available or widely known to the average social media consumer.

And that’s the next big question, “Ok, well then should I hire a full time social media person or is it more beneficial to hire an agency to handle my social needs?”  Here’s where I explain that you need to weigh the pros and cons and decide what’s best for your company and take the following 4 points into serious consideration:

  • Which is better, one marketing genius or a team of experienced specialists?

First let me begin with a quick synopsis of what it requires to maintain great social channels: keen marketing knowledge, creativity, design, content, and brand management just to name a few. When hiring an agency, such as Millennium, to manage your social accounts, you’re often working with one social media person, so you think. What you may not realize is that the social media strategist is working with their own agency’s team of designers, developers, copywriters, digital marketing specialists, and executives who all bring their respective talents and creativity to the table during behind the scenes social media meetings. Essentially, while you think you’re hiring one person to manage your accounts, you’re an entire team of talented marketing professionals that are pushing your brand to increase your ROI. So unless you can find one person who can write, design, understands marketing, has a PR degree, and is insanely creative, your best investment is with an agency, and their behind the scenes team.    Read More…

June 15, 2015

Have you ever gone to the movies? Ok, maybe that was a stupid question. Most of us have gone to a movie theater at least once. Think about when you eagerly stroll over to the concession stand to buy that tub of popcorn. The options (usually) sound something like this: You can buy a medium-size […]
