If your eCommerce business is not leveraging social media, it might be time to change that. Whether you’re a small business starting out or a large multinational corporate, using social media as a marketing strategy is inevitable, and here’s why:
Social media isn’t just another platform to push your adverts. A part of your eCommerce marketing strategy on social media would be to post videos, stories, and pictures which is absolutely free. You can start a campaign for a new product simply by creating a hashtag for it. Share content-driven articles to educate your audience, post updates to hype customers about a new product launch or event. It doesn’t matter how big or small your budget is, you’ll always be able to promote your company and products on social media.
Apart from the fact that it’s affordable, social media posts allows open communication between the company and its audience. Being on social media makes your eCommerce brand more approachable and more open to interaction with your customers. Liking, commenting, and sharing are some of the ways customers can engage with the content you post on any social media channels opening up a new pathway for your market to connect with your company.
There are no templates with social media. Communicate your company’s voice to your audience and attract your target market. Whether it’s formal and classy or fun and friendly, you get to interact in a style that best represents the company vibe. By establishing a brand personality on social media, you are essentially increasing your company’s visibility.
Being on social media is a two-way street. It’s not just a way for your customers to learn more about you. It’s a way to gain some knowledge about your market. Learn more about them by how they respond to your social media strategy. Further, get insight on what prospective customers are interested in, when they are most responsive, and what they are looking for. Generate and follow leads at a lower cost than ever by analysing how your social accounts are performing.
