[Infographic] Why You Should Build a Digital Community



The internet is increasingly playing a big role in the buyer decision process. So it makes sense that businesses — especially small- and- medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) — build a digital community on social media. A smart way to reach their target audience.

Emails and websites are still great marketing tools, but social media is now the top driver for relationship building and brand engagement. In fact, it’s effective twice as much as emails and four times as much as websites.

But aside from that, there are other compelling reasons why building digital communities are necessary, such as:

Brand awareness

With more and more people going online, you can increase awareness for the presence of your brands as well as the needs your businesses can address. It’s a great way to seek out potential customers and stay in touch with existing ones.

Learning opportunity

Making people engage with your brand takes much more than in-your-face marketing. You should offer them something they’ll want, such as a platform where they can communicate with other people who have the same interest in your brand and the niche it’s in.

Whether big or small, learn why social media is essential to be part of a business’ marketing strategy. Social platforms help a company connect with its customers, increase awareness of their brands, and boost leads and sales. With over three billion people using social media, it’s not a passing trend. Here are a few reasons why social media marketing is essential.

4 Benefits of Social Media

  • Cost-effective

    Social media is possibly the most cost-effective marketing strategy. Signing up and creating an account is free on almost all social media platforms. This marketing strategy is cost-effective and helps businesses attain a higher ROI.

  • Show Authenticity

    Social media provides businesses with a platform where they can show their brand voice. Additionally, they’re able to improve their brand’s personality.

  • Enhances SEO Rankings

    Social media is one of the factors used in calculating rankings. Today, optimizing a website isn’t enough. Furthermore, for a business to secure a successful ranking, it has to share content on social media.

To summarize, there is no doubt that social media marketing has several benefits. By updating the right social media marketing strategies, businesses can increase traffic and improve brand loyalty. To learn more, check out the infographic below from the good folks at PRDaily.

Reaching an audience through social media should be quick, entertaining, and fun.

Here are some tips to stay on top of social media and trending content:

  • Checking Twitter, Facebook, and Google Trends for trending topics related to your market and using that topic to create a post.
  • Making sure the post is proofread and accurate.
  • Submitting the post and staying active with the response it receives.

After the content is posted:

Study the analytics from your posts, and ask questions like:

  • What audiences did it reach?
  • What as the age range?
  • What was the gender?
  • What was the geographic response?

Capitalize on topics that were effective and ditch ones that did not create any buzz.
Most importantly, refine your posts over time.

Audiences will show what they liked and didn’t like, along with what’s working and what’s not.

The more successful the posts, the more the social network grows and that leads to more exposure for the brand.

The key is to really identify where you’re weak
and also where you are strong.

Smart business owners know this and do this.  They don’t take it personally, they understand this is part of growing! Once you identify those strengths and weaknesses you can easily begin to make the appropriate changes that will dramatically increase your success!

And if you are one of those business owners that still don’t see the validity in implementing these marketing strategies listen to a conversation I had this morning with an oncologist and my client who (at preschool while we were dropping off our kids.)  My client said to the oncologist verbatim…”The results from social media and working with Amanda have been dramatic.  Last year at this time I had 5 new patients for my practice and this month I have 30 new patients.”  (and the month isn’t even over yet.)

These are the results when done properly and consistently!

So, in short…this is what you need to be doing consistently.

1.  Building a massive email list of clients, patients and customers. 

2.  Writing 1-2 blogs per week and sharing via email and through all of your social networks.

3.  Consistently posting 3-12 times per day on all social media channels for your business with engaging content.

4.  Focus on building relationship with your fans, followers and clients that creates a culture and a loyal following.

5.  Create a free report, ebook and other written publications to help spread the word about your area of expertise as well as continue to grab the attention of new fans, followers and clients.  View TabSite eBook on Facebook Page Review Checklist >>

6.  Continue to learn new strategies and techniques for implementing these strategies into your business through online courses, consulting or seminars OR hire a talented person who can implement this for you. I come from the philosophy of do what you are good at and let others to the rest.

7. Create multiple streams of landing pages and websites that bring in new leads for your business.

8.  Develop a strategic plan on how you will achieve your business goals.

There you have it in a nut shell.  This is what you need in today’s world of marketing.
