When it comes to marketing, social media is the ultimate tool, especially if you are a smaller business. Marketing costs money and you may have a very limited budget, so where you use it matters. Well, you’ll be happy to hear that marketing through social media is actually one of the most versatile and cost-effective forms of marketing out there, so what are you waiting for!
You want brand recognition so get on social media! If you need convincing, this blog is here to tell you how, exactly, it will increase your brand recognition.
It Presents More Information
Social media makes accessing more information on your company incredibly easy. Unlike other kinds of advertising like print or broadcast, social media advertising makes it easy for a customer who is vaguely interested to take a closer look at your company and decide if they’re really interested or not, whereas other forms of advertising take more work to learn more than what’s straight on the ad. Therefore, some people might not even bother.
“For example, let’s say that a new lead stumbles upon your brand on social media. They may not have heard of your company before, but through your social media content, they are able to learn more about your brand and the value that you provide.” – Lyfe Marketing
When someone is easily able to learn more about your brand, they’re much more likely to recognize it. Once someone takes the second to look at your profile they’re already way more familiar with your company than if they simply saw a poster or pop-up ad.
Social Media Has a Broader Reach
Social media has a much broader reach than some other forms of advertising out there. This means that more people from all around the world have the chance of seeing your content and remembering your company in the future.
“Social media allows your business to reach customers from anywhere. It’s a much broader form of advertising that doesn’t require you to spend money. Things such as TV ads are growing irrelevant and only reach people within a certain area. Social media doesn’t have those limits.” – Like A Voss
Social media is definitely one of the most cost-effective ways to reach new audiences. You want as many people as possible to see your company. What other form of advertisement can be seen across the globe?
Your Content Can Be Easily Shared
One of the best tools on social media is the ability for other people to share your content. This spreads your message to a completely new audience for free. If you take the time to create and post good content, people will share it because they genuinely want to.
“By creating something shareworthy, a brand can extend their reach. Think of Wendy’s comebacks on Twitter. That created a fan uproar, and thousands of retweets because people found it funny. If you create something that people find funny, believe in, or can have an emotional attachment towards, you’ll find it is an easy thing to share.” – Business 2 Community
Social media also makes it super easy for people to share things. All they have to do is click a button. You can increase this by hosting social media contests.
Just like any form of advertising, social media is sure to increase brand recognition. The difference is how far social media can spread it. And it’s affordable. What’s not to love?
