  • This is our vision, the ultimate goal we want to achieve. Looking at our client’s structure, we are not far away!
  • Outside of Social media experts and Digital marketers, it is always worth mentioningthat Social media has become an important part of the marketing strategy for any organization out there. The number of users is constantly growing. Most large companies are using it and people are spending more and more significant time browsing their news feeds.
  • A look at the recent research shows the value of Social media for marketers. We can see that, for most of them, it is about having another channel that brings exposure to their brand. Right after this, they claim that bringing higher traffic to their home page is their second biggest goal. An important part of social media marketing, even though it is only in 3rd place in terms of priorities, is marketplace intelligence. By carefully listening to what customers are saying about your brand, you can significantly improve your future decisions.Developing loyal fans can also easily translate into having loyal customers!
  • The world of social media is developing fast and constantly changing, as are users and companies.If we saw (and still can see) companies just being on social, (because everybody is), in the second stage they are now using listening tools, are more focused on fan growth, and might be using some basic ads.While the so-called “Next generation” of social-matured brands are very well aware of ROI of social and keeping Social media in the center of their focus. They are running perfect social customer car, having dedicated teams, and using advanced technologies to be able to respond more promptly. Creating engaging content is the way to make sure their message creates high interactions and therefore is seen by more people. Advanced advertising formats such as “Custom audiences, or Log – out experience” are a common part of their daily lives.
  • As mentioned before, Social media, its users, as well as brands, are constantly changingIf we saw people liking only 5 pages on average in 2009, now the number has increased to 50 and more. Also, brands are posting more often, from once a week to once or twice a day.It become much harder to reach the fans as result of it. Taking in consideration that 90% of people never go back in to the page they likethe d, only way they see that page is through posts. Posts can organically reach only about 15% of a fan base. So it is necessary to think about boosting them by investing your advertising budget into them.
  • And there is more that a Social media manager has to deal with.What content works, what people are talking about––he (or she) needs the right data to make the right decisions – about their own performance as well as their competitors. Creating engaging content to get through the clutter is the key, as well as managing the conversation. That is a lot to do.
  • For every stage of Social Media workflow we have the right tool to go with.The center of the workflow is analyzing, so it is a center of Socialbakers suite as well. And Analytical features are used in all the others.Builder is a publishing system that gives you numbers on the performance of your and competitors post, and also tracks how your team is doing on posting and managing the conversation. But mainly, it makes collaboration around publishing very easy.Ad Analytics will help to automatically boost your best-performing posts and Listening will find any conversation happening in a number of seconds.
