Knowing which Social Media platforms to reach your audience on is essential to getting your message, service, or products noticed. This is why it’s important to pay attention to audience trends. For example, it has recently come to light that Facebook usage amongst younger audiences (teenagers and young adults) is in a steep decline.
A lot of the time (especially if you’re just starting to build a Social Media strategy) brands and businesses assume being on more platforms is better; which makes sense in theory. However, trying to be on every platform at once can stretch your time and resources thin. Instead, conduct audience analysis and create a persona. Does your audience really spend that much time on a platform like Facebook? If the honest answer is no, then channel your efforts into a platform they actually use. This will lead to more engagement, leads, and sales.

Remarketing or retargeting is an underrated marketing tool that too often gets overlooked. If you’ve been overlooking this tactic, here are four reasons why you might want to consider incorporating it into your strategy.
Consistent customers mean consistent revenue. Developing and maintaining a good relationship with people that have already shopped with you before will lead to more loyal customers that you can rely on. Existing customers are also more likely to spend more and try new products and services from your brand/business. Also, not every lead is going to become a customer the first time they visit your website. Giving them a gentle nudge or reminder that you exist could be what they need to commit to purchasing next time. Lastly, returning customers behave differently than new customers as they are more trusting. Interesting in learning more about the power of remarketing? Click the link above.
