Most people spend an average of 2 hours and 24 minutes on social media daily.
Social media participation has evolved from sharing photos with friends and family into a critical tool for public relations, search optimization, and brand awareness.
Many brands create an account and add a few posts in as low-cost a way as possible; even passing it off to an intern to manage it and make post decisions. The truth is, social media has become an integral part of a comprehensive brand strategy. It should be a dialogue with customers, not a monologue and should be considered an integrated piece of the marketing pie. The most successful companies are increasing their investments in social and gaining access to more qualified targeted audiences through traffic and subsequent analytics.
Identifying your audience and their social media usage is crucial to making your social media campaign a success. It goes beyond fan and follower acquisition, engagement, or pure sales metrics; it requires a strategic data-driven approach to activation with targeting, messaging, and KPIs that are tailored to a brand’s audience and objectives. A social media audit can provide valuable insights about your audience and the keys to understanding how messaging should be crafted to achieve your goals.
We do the research to understand your customers, their interests, behaviors and patterns, D2 tests and analyzes social keywords, different networks and types of content to uncover which sites and apps drive traffic, as well as which are most in demand from your customers or target audience. We can then build an effective strategy and define appropriate messaging for the right social platforms.
The most effective social media defines clear goals and builds an authentic, relevant story that aligns with overall brand strategy. At D2, our solutions are crafted around your specific needs and goals.
