Have you ever heard someone say, “We’re living in a noisy digital world” and wondered what they meant? Well, it can easily be defined as all the challenges and distractions that prevent your social media message from grabbing the attention of your target audience.
All social media marketers are trying so hard to be heard. We focus on creating great content and campaigns in the effort to create brand awareness and persuade buyers. In a rapidly changing digital world, it can be difficult to stay relevant and know what’s effective and what’s not.
The challenge for any social media marketer is to stand out above the noise and be market smart, not loud. So, the question is, how do you get people to listen to you in a noisy world? Here are some tips to help you stand out.
Content is king
Consumers bring an emotional perspective to brand preference, meaning that they buy what they relate to, like and trust. The proliferation of screens in our daily environment demands more quality content from marketers. The key to good content is a good story. Stories that intrigue, captivate and charm are also stories that people love, tell and share.
Always keep your core values top of mind when creating content and when managing your social media platforms. After all, consistency leads to reliability, and reliability leads to trust, and trustworthy brands always stand out.
Have conversations with your customers
Active social media listening is one of the most important things to do in order to get to know your customer. It takes more than just listening. You have to have open two-way mutually beneficial conversations. Your customers will begin to see you as helpful, responsive and someone who cares about them and their needs.
Leverage social media automation tools
A powerful feature of marketing automation is the ability to accurately capture data that can help you build a deeper understanding of your customer profiles and gain better insight into the customers’ journey. These insights can then be used to get the right content in front of the right people at the right time.
When you are able to put all or some of these tips together, you’ll begin to create a better top of mind association with your customers and will have no problem conquering the noise on social media. Let us know what else you’d add to our list.
