Promoting on social media is a dynamic and ever-evolving field. Not for a second does it remain motionless. Just when you think you have your marketing approach up to date with the current social media fad, it becomes a relic of the past.
Keeping up with the constant changes in this area of marketing can be challenging. The days of putting all of your marketing efforts onto a single sign or billboard are long gone. You have to spread yourself out over all of the social media platforms and don’t neglect the print media entirely.
Making your marketing plan as adaptable as the social media channels is the best approach to ensure its success. As we’re entering a new decade, this may need a shift in marketing strategy.
Follow these guidelines, and you’ll always be one step ahead of the social media marketing train:
1. Reduce clutter and complexity by prioritising efficiency.
There is no delay on social media. Some influencers, fearful of having their whereabouts revealed and so jeopardising their safety, may claim otherwise. Social media, however, is happening right now in the eyes of the general public. Ensure you’re getting the most out of your time by adopting time-saving solutions like Trello or Zenhub, an alternative to Trello.
2. Don’t think about your likes anymore
You want your photographs and posts to be well received, of course. Instagram is already testing a new feature where the amount of likes a post receives is hidden from view, so perhaps this metric will eventually go the way of the dodo. Instead, you should pay attention to the overall traffic you’re getting, not just the postings. Rethinking your social media approach may be in order if people are engaging with your content on social media but not clicking through to learn more about the product you’re marketing.
3. Get on board with the augmented reality revolution
The era of augmented reality has here, with social media serving as its vanguard. Augmented reality has taken over our social media, whether we’re using it to add puppy ears to our selfies or scan a Thai menu for translations. Don’t be afraid of it; instead, welcome it and put it to good use. Make a lens, provide a tour virtually, and embrace the era of 3D advertising.
4. Be wary of the digital detox
Do you recall the magazine that may have benefited from your advertising services? You should do everything you can to keep the peace with them. Due of the impending digital detox, you may need to rework your marketing plan to include more conventional modes of communication.
A break from technology is not a terrible thing. Reducing your time spent in front of a screen has been shown to be good for your mental health. Nevertheless, if you remove a key component of your advertising approach, it might have serious consequences. Don’t ignore the impending digital detox movement; instead, plan ahead so that you’re ready to surf the wave when it arrives.
