So many platforms, so much opportunity. But where to start? Here’s how to get started with social media marketing for your company or product.

Leveraging social platforms is key for businesses and individuals seeking to thrive online. From setting clear objectives to crafting compelling content across the various platforms, social media offers the potential for remarkable growth and success. Here’s how to get started with social media marketing.

1.⁠ ⁠Set clear goals

Define your objectives for using social media. Whether it's increasing brand awareness and getting your product out to a wider audience, driving inquiry or improving overall client engagement, having specific goals will help guide your overall strategy.

2.⁠ ⁠Know your audience

Conduct audience research to understand who your target demographic is and which social media platforms they frequent. Once you’ve got an in-depth understanding of your audience and their interests, you’ll be able to take those insights and use them to tailor your content and messaging to create content that resonates.

3.⁠ ⁠Create compelling content

It can help to do a deep dive on your platform of choice to see what works and what doesn’t, and then use that knowledge to develop your own bank of content. Use visuals such as images, videos, infographics or text-based testimonials to create a mix of informative, entertaining and promotional content that captures attention and encourages engagement.

4.⁠ ⁠Engage with your community consistently

Consistency is key to maintaining a strong presence on social media – post regularly, and stick to it. Keeping a content calendar is a good idea to help you keep on track. In addition to your posts, you’ll also want to ensure you’re responding to comments and messages, and participating in relevant conversations. Why? Because social media accounts that post regularly and are active often do better with those pesky algorithms.

5.⁠ ⁠Utilise advertising

Consider using paid advertising options offered by social media platforms to expand your reach and target specific demographics. You can also experiment with different ad formats to see what resonates best with your audience.

6.⁠ ⁠Track and analyse performance

Social media platforms all come with analytics tools you can use to track the performance of your posts, ads and overall engagement. These insights can then be used to adjust your overall strategy, helping you optimise results over time. For example, you can see what type of content resonates the most with your audience, how many times a post was shared and so on.
