How COVID-19 pandemic has
affected social media marketing
The coronavirus pandemic has not only affected
the daily routine of people and the economy of the
world's most powerful nations, but it has also had a
great impact on social media. For that reason,
marketers have had to go to great lengths to find
the right ways to do their jobs.
The changes and obstacles have been numerous.
Now, social media marketers must adapt to often
tight budgets and must modify all their strategies to
suit an audience full of customers experiencing a
lockdown. But not everything is negative.
MORE TIME ON SOCIAL NETWORKS.
Spending more time at home usually means using the phone longer
and checking social media more often. Due to restrictions to
prevent the spread of the virus, people do not go out to work or
meet their friends. Therefore, they turn to technology for
connection.
Platforms like Instagram and TikTok became even more popular in
many ways. Also, studies show that the use of social media
platforms will continue to a similar degree in the near future, even
after the pandemic.
Marketers can take advantage of this behavior and provide valuable
content with a social approach that allows people to find what they
are looking for and spend more time online connected with brands
and companies. This is quite an interesting twist on your usual
plans.
AD? EVERYWHERE!
Advertising on social media was also positively
impacted by the pandemic. In addition to having
great influencers promoting products and
services, authority and emerging companies
began to use platform ads more strongly.
Although many initially canceled their marketing
campaigns, the ads got back on track and
achieved surprising data. According to Mobile
Marketer, for example, engagement with mobile
ads grew 15%.
MOST POPULAR INFLUENCERS.
During the lockdown, there was also an increase in social
media users' connections with influencers. Users began to
interact with the most famous people's content on social
media.
Marketers also had to change some of their tactics to
include influencers in their campaigns or create similar
content to make users connect with the brand or company
they work for.
ONLINE SHOPPING EXPLOSION.
Another aspect that revolutionized digital marketing was online shopping. Shoppers started
purchasing their items from online stores, as most of the physical ones were forced to close.
The different social media platforms have adapted
their interface to connect brand and company
accounts to their commercial websites. Marketers
who have taken advantage of these tools have
achieved conversion rates never seen before.
COVID-19 changed the way people view,
understand, and use the Internet. Therefore, the
importance of social media marketing has increased,
and marketers are working hard to take advantage of
all the benefits that it brings.
