Here are 4 tips for a successful social media marketing campaign.

1. Keep Communicative for Social Media Marketing Campaigns

Communication is a must when running a successful campaign. There are two main strands of communication to keep on top of:

Communication with Influencers, Stakeholders, and Content Creators

Your campaign will rely upon keeping in communication with everybody involved.

Social media moves fast. You need to be ready to make swift changes in order to achieve your marketing goals. This means keeping in contact with everybody that can help you make changes quickly.

Business owners often think they can hand everything over to someone.

But in reality, they must communicate regularly with their social media marketer. Depending on what type of business, it could be weekly or monthly.

Communication With Audience Members

One of the defining features of social media is the reciprocal nature of communication. Unlike traditional campaigns, social media campaigns demand a dialogue between subject and author.

As a matter of fact, engagement is a key component. Engagement is needed for a successful social media campaign today.

Without it, your social media posts cannot go viral.

2. Multi-Platform Market for Social Media Marketing Campaigns

Do not just focus on one social media platform. Spreading your campaign widely over multiple platforms can help you reach a more diverse audience.

Hence, this will aid you in identifying new markets for future campaigning.

Remember to link all of your marketing materials on social media together for the best results.

3. Centralize Your Administration

Running a social media marketing campaign can be a huge headache. There are all sorts of tasks to get on with, and if they do not all get done on time then your campaign might crumble like a house of cards in a stiff breeze.

Multitasking is a huge part of running a campaign, but you can save yourself a great deal of hassle by centralizing all your administrative tasks.

Communicating with influencers, scheduling posts, creating content, and delegating tasks should all be done in one place.

4. Do Not Forget SEO

Search Engine Optimization is the practice of making online content visible through search engines. Therefore, search engines like Google rank web pages by relevance.

Relevance is calculated using a number of factors. For example, factors may include content quality, keyword usage, and link connectivity.

However, SEO is often ignored by novice marketers looking to run a social media campaign. This is a huge mistake.

Even though plenty of traffic will come internally from social media, a great deal will come externally.

External traffic comes from people searching on websites such as Google. However, don’t forget SEO best practices when running a campaign.

Focus on using keywords and images cleverly to gain the favor of the algorithms. Next, keep up on the changing algorithms and SEO updates.

  • Hi Lisa,
    I am new to blogging and am being tutored by Glenn Shepherd who suggested that I take a look at your blog.
    I have read your post here about successful social media campaigns which delivered some great information as I have been struggling a bit with this in the past.
    I have particularly taken onboard your information around spreading the campaigns over several social media platforms as in the past I have only been using one at a time.

    Regards, Peter

    • Hi Peter, welcome to Inspire To Thrive. How nice of Glenn to recommend me to you. We bloggers do help each other out 🙂 Yes, especially today with the fluctuations of the algorithms of the social networks. What network were you using? Thanks for coming by and have a great weekend.

  • SEO is big Lisa because social media traffic and profits can be quite volatile, really fickle, even if you are a credible social media manager. Even if you engage frequently on Facebook, Twitter and IG, their algorithms seem hard to predict as far as being a reliable traffic source that keeps increasing. Google traffic feels more steady and reliable as you become skilled at optimizing blog posts for search. Drive social media traffic when running a campaign but never ignore Google traffic. Super tips in this post.

    • Hi Ryan, I agree with you on SEO. Not just Google but Bingo and DuckDuckGo as well. I’ve noticed traffic from those search engines more this year than ever before. Thanks for your input on this one and have a great weekend down there in paradise Ryan!
