Define your goals and know your target audience
When creating an effective paid marketing campaign, It is important to consider your advertising goals, which could range from increasing and developing brand awareness. You might also want to get more people to view your site and here you can decide if you are targeting an active audience that will engage with your posts or one that is more passive. If you need more reinforcement of who your target audience is, you could introduce targeted market research such as surveys where you can discover more about your audience. And of course one of the most common objectives is to see growth in sales and profits.
What social media channels should you choose?
When thinking about the platform/s to use, knowing your audience is crucial. Research the different platforms and look at the statistics regarding who uses it. Be aware that all the social media platforms have their own personalities. LinkedIn works well for B2B enterprises and is super for sharing company information including what your business does well. Twitter is great for live chat and trending topics. You can also check the platforms your competitors are using and see what’s working for them and perhaps what isn’t working.
