Social Media Marketing and Citations

It’s no longer a question of “if” social media helps a small business. It does! The question now is, does your small business have the time and personnel to handle your social media effectively? If your answer is “No” then hiring an agency to do the work is definitely the right call.

dss solutions 18 can help your business create, grow and monitor your social media presence.

According to the Small Business Trends website, there are seven reasons why your small business should be looking to hire an agency to handle your social media:

  • Business Marketing. Marketing is the main function of a social media agency. These companies manage a brand’s presence on all social networking sites while working to get the attention of the maximum audience possible.
  • Building Brand Recognition. Social media agencies are dedicated to getting a brand widely recognized on all social media platforms so, it’s useful to hire an agency to take your brand to the next level. Social media professionals know where to start and which platforms to use.
  • Getting Clientele. No matter how big or small your business may be, a social media agency will concentrate on making your brand more accessible. The emphasis is on capturing visitors’ attention and turning them into buyers or permanent clients.
  • Projecting Brand Values. Social media agencies are skilled at projecting and maintaining the value associated with your brand. This includes promoting the emotional, practical and other benefits of a company, product or service.
  • Brand Promotion. Brand promotion is the top concern of any social media agency. And hiring an agency can be the most effective way of promoting your brand across all channels, not just well-known networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google+. There are many other channels like Pinterest, Flickr, Instagram and Stumble Upon.
  • Dealing with Competition. Social media agencies are skilled at dealing with competitive environments. Hiring an agency will help your business not only promote its brand, products and services but help place it ahead of other brands of similar or equal visibility.
  • Achieving Goals in Less Time. The ultimate goal of a social media agency is to help a business effectively promote its brand across social media channels more effectively in less time. This can ultimately save a business time and money by outsourcing a time consuming but necessary part of the marketing process letting the small business owner focus on what they do best; providing quality goods or services.

Hand in hand with a strong Social Media presence is being listed in as many online directories as possible. These listings are called Citations and with, literally, hundreds of online business directories out there your business must get listed to be found.

Directories help customers get instant information about any business including:       

  • NAP (Name, Address and Phone Number)
  • Business Location(s)
  • Business Hours
  • Products and
  • Photos (which help a customer get a feel for a business.)

Social Media Marketing and Citations are the new Yellow Pages of life and, if properly implemented, can grow your business by getting you more customers!
