Understanding a customer’s journey through the sales funnel is essential for reaching your company’s sales goals. A major part of the sales funnel today that wasn’t present several years ago is social media. Consumers look for social media content to help them make purchasing decisions and they also want to learn more about your company. Being active and engaging on social media is critical today and here are a few ways you can do so to increase your sales.
Engage With Potential Customers
Consumers today will often go to social media before visiting a company’s website if they want to learn more about them or reach out to them about something. When you are active with social media marketing, your company will seem more approachable and your engagement will increase. But even if customers aren’t actively reaching out to you, your social media marketing efforts should include content that compels them to engage with you. Whether it’s providing support for your product, answering questions, or simply responding to a customer’s post, engaging with customers can lead to product sales.
Understand Your Audience Through Social Listening
The unique aspect of social media and marketing is sometimes taking a step back and listening to your audience, which can be more valuable than anything else. With social listening, you can watch conversations with your target audience and even competitors to find out exactly what your customers want. The more insights you can have with your customers, the more targeted your social media marketing efforts can be and the higher your conversion rate will be.
Post The Right Content At The Right Time
Timing is everything with social media marketing. You can come up with the best social media content, but no one will see it if you don’t post it at the right time. This involves collecting data on when your audience engages most with your posts. Every audience is unique, so think about the type of social media content you’re posting, when you’re posting it, and how your sales changed resulting from a post. Social media marketing is more about quality than quantity and you can make each post more meaningful when it’s made at the perfect time.
