16. Turn Customers Into Brand Ambassadors

Want to amaze your online community and potential customers? LISTEN TO THEM! Listen and respond accordingly, people enjoy feeling valued, and always have something to say on social media. Engaging with your audience will convert customers into brand ambassadors.

17. Start with Strategy

All successful things online start with strategizing offline. To start, I advise my clients and potential clients to step away from the social platform and ask themselves three very important questions:

  1. Why am I in this business?
  2. Who is my product / service for?
  3. How does my product / service solve my client’s problem?
  1. It is important to start with this because we often forget the answer. (Money is never the real answer).
  1. The answer to this should be a specific as possible. If you server a variety of audiences, you need to make a profile for each. This should include demographical data (sex, age, and location). It should also include interests, hobbies, clothing brands, etc. This allows you to clearly “see” your ideal client, establish which social platforms to reach them on and curate content they will respond best to.
  1. This is a two-part question as you need to know the pains your clients are experiencing. Then you can decide and describe how your product or service solves these problems.

These questions are the start to build a strategy, which will allow you to move onto goals, branding, and lead generation via social media. Companies that do crucial offline work risk wasting their time and money.

18. Understand Your Target Audience

Focus your efforts on where your target audience “hangs out”. (They also hang out in more than one place!) Understand how those you are trying to reach use social media at different points in the day. For example: Bob the business owner may check his LinkedIn and Twitter while at work, but when he gets home, he’s on Facebook and Instagram. You need to create content for all these social channels. Let’s say Bob is a huge sports fan, he might not be clicking on sports links on LinkedIn, but you can bet he is at home. By knowing your potential client, you can create content relevant to them!

19. Make Lasting Impressions

Focus on lasting impressions and genuine content over the long term. Avoid fleeting trends and slang. Your brand’s voice should be consistent and real and reflect the culture for which it speaks. Be authentic. This does not mean don’t embrace new things, just recognize the difference between meeting your clients needs at their level and trying to hard to be “Joe Cool”.

20. Work With Sales to Understand the Buying Journey

As with any marketing structure, the key is understanding your audience, especially in an enterprise market. Marketers should work with the sales team to understand the buying journey and various influences that are involved on the journey. Once the marketer understands this path, they should create content that fits the process.

An effective way for inbound lead gen, is to create content that either helps the reader do their job, saves the reader time during their job, or entertains the reader. This content should then be pushed out through the most relevant channels!
