It’s no secret social media is a perfect platform to not only find, but engage with consumers. No longer can it be just posting a pretty photo and leaving it at that. Companies can choose their level of interaction from listening to consumers or driving the conversation. All companies should leverage the open communication social media creates and opportunity for consumer dialog and feedback that social media can offer. Social media marketing hinges on the ability to create worthwhile and engaging content for their audience.
Social Media Research
Prior to creating a social media marketing plan, Anvil accesses current social efforts of not only your existing platforms, but also your competitor’s. This begins by taking a snapshot assessment of your current audience, who is engaging with you, where your existing and target consumers are and if there are missed opportunities. When it comes to social media marketing, it’s vital to know what your competition is doing. Having consistent competitive analysis of social media profiles will help you understand how your own efforts stack up and keep your brand ahead of the curve.

Each of the world’s major social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Google+, Pinterest, etc.) has its own unique audience and purpose, and a company’s voice and strategy must be tailored to suit each one.
