The Social Media Customer

This is not a political discussion. We’re an advertising agency.

But with the amount of every company’s budget that has shifted to digital advertising in the last few years, it’s hard to ignore all of the issues going on in social media these days from a purely marketing standpoint. Because when it comes down to it, social media is us. It’s our customers. And that’s what we’re focused on. The customers.

While it may be easy to blow off all of these stories in the news today swirling around Facebook, Google and Amazon, we must pay attention. Too many companies have invested into building large marketing infrastructure around these platforms to pass these stories off as pure political fluff.

Keeping It Trendy

Why Current Events Need To Be Part of Your Brand’s Content Mix

We live in a time where brands can be connected and engaging with consumers, in real time, at any time thanks to social media. It is important to remember that on digital platforms, consumers can engage with your brand at their convenience. It’s a fingertip away and (again for emphasis) on their time. With this in mind, your content needs to accommodate the consumer. Pretty generic advice, huh? It’s not that simple.

The Forgotten Social Networks

Over the Christmas break, I happened to be in Detroit with family enjoying the last days of the Walter P. Chrysler Museum. Shortly after we left, the inevitable discussion of where to eat came up. So I did what every good American now does and grabbed my cell phone. But I didn't fire up Facebook. Or Twitter. I started tapping icons for many social media outlets that many businesses don't even consider.

The Grand Finale

After all is said and done, what do we know for sure? First, we know that it's rare, if not unheard of, for a business owner to say that their website isn't important to their business. Years ago it was established that to not be online was to miss out on opportunities that could elevate business sales to numbers beyond normal expectations. Second, we know that the average business is reaching thousands of people per month with their site. This in itself deserves congratulations for many business owners.

What the Numbers Tell Us

While certainly not the only solution, a commitment to marketing a business website will be one of the ways to reverse the trend of non-returning visitors. Building feedback loops into the site, where customers can easily subscribe to a secondary source of information, be that a newsletter or Facebook account, provides a way to bring a visitor back to your site. If these methods of marketing are not utilized, continue to expect that 75% of your visitors will only see your site once.
