Twitter’s been through dramatic amounts of change over the years, from 140 characters to 280, to housing rants from the President of the United States – we’ve seen it all! As a channel for businesses, it’s still the perfect place for viral content and keeping up with the latest trends.

YouTube looks set to continue to take over TV, allowing businesses and individuals to showcase their skills and products to the masses. We can help you craft ideas and strategies to create consumer facing content that’s genuine and engaging.

Business doesn’t have to be boring! LinkedIn is fast becoming the advertising platform of choice for a number of businesses who want to find better ways to connect with the audience that matter to them. Whether you’re looking to drive website traffic or generate leads, we’ll make sure your message is put in front of the right people.
We believe that no one knows your business better than you. You work in your company every day and can spot the smaller happenings that make for a well-rounded social media feed as well as being able to immediately answer any questions and take any feedback you get through your social channels.
It’s for these reasons that many of our social media clients choose to use us for strategic consultancy rather than full social media management. This means we provide you with the roadmap – what to do on each social media channel, when to do it, and how – so that your internal marketing teams can implement our recommendations.
We also provide social media training to help your team (the person managing your social media and the wider team if appropriate) to understand how social media fits into your business’ marketing efforts.
Our social media strategy services typically begin with a project where we assess your marketplace to design the initial strategy, which might be laid out by date if relevant or by phases to allow you flexibility. A typical strategy comprises:
Social activity tends to differ depending on the industry in which you operate. We'll provide insight into which channels typically work in your sector to guide you on the channels you might choose to use yourself.
If you've been using social media already, you'll have data about what has worked, and what hasn't, with your own audience. We'll review the analytics of your social profiles, in line with Google Analytics, if you have it, to assess which social platforms contribute to your overall goals.
Reviewing the social media activity of your competitors can give you an insight into what works, and what doesn't work, for them, allowing you to learn from their efforts to further inform your own.
Our analysis contributes to the strategy which we'll lay out for you in line with your resourcing and budget considerations. By presenting a phased approach, we give you the roadmap you need to follow to achieve your social goals and let you implement this in line with your own internal timelines.
Social Media Training
Implementing your strategy can seem a daunting task. We can spend a half day, full day or more with your internal team to teach them how best to use each of the social media channels we recommend. We’ll also provide an overview of all other social media channels and best practice therein, so they’re well placed to continue to develop your social strategy in the future.
Our training is designed bespoke to your business and strategy, so can be directed at all levels of experience and social media knowledge, from your marketing manager to your graduate assistant.
