As a social media strategist, I recognize the importance of creating a solid social media strategy. Not only does it help you look more credible to your audience but it also helps you save a lot of time in the long run. Today I’m going to share 5 key benefits of creating a social media strategy.
5 Key Benefits of Creating a Social Media Strategy
1. Keeps Content Consistent & Saves You Time
When you have a social media strategy, your content is consistent and you never have to worry about what you’re going to be posting about because it’s already all laid out for you.
Having a social media strategy helps you save so much time in the long run. Of course, the initial creation is going to take you some time but once that’s finished you’ll just be able to put your content into a social media scheduler and focus on actually engaging with your audience in real time rather than creating the content.
2. Cost Effective
A social media strategy is a lot more cost effective than other marketing initiatives. Using social media is free unless you decide to run advertisements and even then, it’s definitely cheaper than print ads, radio ads, and things of that sort and ultimately more effective in the long run.
3. Purchasing Decisions are influenced by social media
Nowadays people purchase after being influenced by something they see on social media which is why influencer marketing is so huge right now.
4. Increases Your Exposure
Having a solid social media strategy helps you to further increase your exposure within your target audience. If you don’t have an active presence on social media, people aren’t going to know who you or your company is.
5. Builds Trust with Your Audience
Having a solid social media strategy helps you continue to build trust with your audience. When you have built up trust with your audience, they are more likely to purchase from you and support you in all of your endeavors.
