It is easy to see the influence of social media. Millions of people turn to social media for news, products, reviews, and community. Entrepreneurs use social media accounts to market their businesses. Without a social media presence, many businesses would have a difficult time getting new customers.
The world is increasingly digital, and business owners have to keep up with social media trends to stay relevant. Many business owners understand the importance of social media, but they don’t have the time to create timely, meaningful posts. These entrepreneurs turn to professionals for help with content creation. If you are debating whether you should hire a professional to help you increase your online presence, the following should help you decide.
Is your staff equipped to handle social media?
Some business owners either take the responsibility of social media themselves, or they delegate the task to a member of their staff. It can take anywhere from 30 to 40 hours a month for a midsize company to manage their social media channels. Creating a concept for a social media campaign requires time and creativity. The person responsible for posting should have a firm grasp of digital media and the knowledge required to boost organic reach.
Can you recoup the costs of hiring a professional in increased revenue?
Companies handling social media in-house should evaluate whether delegating the task is a good use of company resources. If you allow a member of your staff to drop these duties, could they spend more time doing another necessary task instead? Could you bring in more clients and increase customers satisfaction by gaining a higher level of service?
Determine how much you could bring in through clever social media marketing. Compare the costs and time of keeping social media within the company to outsourcing the job to a professional marketer.
Finding the right person to handle your accounts
Social media marketing allows you to communicate your brand message and voice online. It is important to hand this duty over to someone who understands your mission and feels passionate about your company. Every company can be marketed online. Whether you’re a restaurant or dentist’s office, there are ways to market your business online. You need someone with the knowledge and experience necessary to show your business in the best light.
Before committing to an agency or consultant to manage your social media presence, make sure they know about your industry. You will need to teach them about your customers and your unique marketing goals. If you are ready to hire a professional, consider our team at Circles Co. Collective.
