Consumers nowadays are digitally dependent and smartphone-savvy with a social-first mindset. As a result, many brands have begun investing in a global social agency to guarantee effective bespoke social media strategies to tap into this new consumer trend.
Social media agencies are made up of digital and creative experts who live and breathe social media. They are an amalgamation of insider tips, tricks and insights that can craft high-impact campaigns and long-term strategies that accurately target specific demographics’ needs and demands – no matter how large or small.
While you can find marketing insights online, if you have limited social media experience and resources, you will benefit from the services, tools and resources a global social media agency can provide.
How a social media agency will benefit your business
Access to exclusive resources and insights
The social media landscape is complex and constantly changing. Social media agencies have access to industry-specific and best-in-class tools and resources to help monitor and adapt to the changing landscape. With these tools, agencies can listen to organic social conversations, analyze sentiment, monitor industry trends, and so much more. Working with an agency with these tools means your social strategy will be based on real-time, relevant insights; these insights and mentions can also help guide reactive content that puts your brand at the heart of now.
Deep audience understanding
Social media agencies are social experts. They stay up to date with the latest trends, happenings and news that could impact your business. This includes understanding your audience’s wants, demands and content consumption preferences. With this understanding, social media agencies can create localized or global content that will resonate with your audience on platforms where they live natively. Producing relevant content presented to your audience on a silver platter will help build your online presence and community quickly.
Natural and fast audience growth
Social media agencies understand audiences and how to grow them. By combining organic and paid social content, social agencies can build a global community for your brand, full of relevant and engaged audience members. With effective and consistent community management and engagement, social agencies can help personify your brand on social media, helping audience members create an emotional connection to your brand.
Seamless adaptation to changing algorithms
Part of the constant evolution of the social landscape is platforms changing their algorithms. Although this doesn’t happen all too often, it can be a big shake-up when it does. Social media agencies are always-on-top and on the lookout for any algorithm changes that may impact the engagement on posts. Social agencies can put your brand ahead of the rest by catching and understanding the algorithm change early.
Implement long-term strategies
While social media can be used for one-off campaigns, the most impactful (and time-consuming) strategy focuses on the long-term. This sometimes means setting your brand upon a platform from scratch. Doing this on your own can take up an enormous amount of time and money. However, while an agency will cost money, using one also means continuing with your other business priorities.
Regular activity reporting
Working with an agency means you will have frequent activity, engagement and campaign reports. Social media agencies are constantly monitoring your brand’s mentions, engagement and sentiment. Agencies understand the importance of reporting and analyzing results—each result can be a make or break for future campaigns. As a result, they can quickly assess whether a strategy is working well or not and make the appropriate changes to ensure the highest impact.
