How to Win the Social Media Game for Your Online Store

Social Media Game

Did you know roughly 70% of Americans use social media?

If you run an online store, social media can be a great way to reach your target audience. However, there are lots of other businesses trying to win on social media, and so standing out can be hard.

Below we’ll review some tips that’ll help you get results with social media. If you want to increase sales, you’ll soon learn how social media can help you hit new revenue records.

Let’s begin!

The Organic Approach

An organic marketing campaign is generally based on creating something that people will share.

When people share this ‘thing’ you will then earn exposure, as well as followers. You can then market to these followers at a later date.

So, how do you create a successful organic marketing campaign on social media?

Well, you first need to create a piece of content that your target audience will actually want to share. So, if you’re in the ‘fishing’ niche, you might create an infographic that explains how people can catch a certain kind of fish.

Once you’ve created this infographic, you then need to get it in front of people.

Now, if you’re just starting out, you might not have a social media profile that has a lot of followers. Thus, posting this content on your own profile won’t do you much good. 

Following this, you might want to send this content to people in your niche that already have a following. They may then share your content, and this will lead to people checking out and possibly following your profile.

Try Ads

Organic marketing can take some time, and so if you’re looking for fast results, paid ads can be a better option.

Generally, the best social media ad platform is Facebook, as it has the largest user base. This means that your target audience is likely spending time on this platform.

Note that if you’re new to digital marketing, running ads on Facebook can be challenging. Due to this, you might want to read some content that covers the basics of Facebook Ads. 

In doing so, you will pick up some Facebook marketing tips, and this will then help you earn a better ROI when you run your campaigns.

You Could Always Hire Someone

If you don’t have the time to learn about online marketing, you may want to consider hiring an agency.

This approach can be more expensive, but it can help you save time.

Before you hire an agency, make sure you request a few case studies. This is important, as case studies will help you determine if an agency is actually as good as they say they are.
