SOCIAL MEDIA FAQ

"What is social media marketing and why does my company need it?" 
 

"What is Instagram?"

Instagram is a photo and video-sharing social media application that allows users to find topics by searching relevant hashtags and following their favorite companies or brands. 

"Why does my company need Instagram?"

Next to Facebook, Instagram is the most popular social network for time spent on the platform. Unlike Facebook, Instagram does not use software that limits the visibility of your brand, which means you have a better chance of getting in front of your audience. 

 

Simply put, visual marketing drives sales. Since Instagram is such a visual platform, followers are more likely to engage and share the content, which turns into selling points.

 

"What are Facebook Pages?"

Facebook Pages are public profiles specifically created for businesses, brands, celebrities, causes, and other organizations.

 

"Why does my company need a Facebook Page?"

By creating and populating your Facebook Page with relevant and valuable content, you can reach more people and engage with potential customers who are searching for the type of services you offer. 

Due to Facebook's algorithms that put limitations on who sees your content, it is most effective to pay for ads to get in front of the audience and demographic you are after. The good part? Facebook ads start at $5. 

 
 

"What is YouTube?"

YouTube is the second largest search engine website worldwide (Google is number one). It is a video sharing platform that allows billions of people to discover, watch and share originally-crafted content.

"Why should I create a YouTube account for my company?"

Visually compelling content allows your audience to see what you have to offer, and often determines whether or not they want to use your services. Using the right video tags can also alert new consumers to your services. 

 

With more than four billion videos viewed daily, more than one billion people who view the site each month, and built-in analytics, the possibility to get your content in front of the right audience is much higher than other platforms.
