Over the past few years, the explosion of various social media platforms into the planet’s largest and most diverse communication hubs has been both exciting, but in a marketing sense, a little confusing for some.

With social platforms, actual engagement numbers can be a little more vague, so it’s not just about choosing the right platform, but also designing adverts and wider campaigns ideal for your setting. That’s where we can help you be most effective.

Types of social platform

While there may be plenty of overlap, each of the main social platforms has slightly differing target audiences, dominant content and best methods for advertising. Some of them allow for more specific marketing than others, some are more aimed at building brand awareness, others at generating sales and others at business-to-business (B2B) connections.

We won’t go into detail on each social platform here, as we have dedicated pages for them elsewhere on our site, with our key social advertising services including:

Types of social advertising

There are a variety of different social ad options you can take advantage of, with our team able to assess which would work best for your available budget and target audience. Each of them have their own strengths and weaknesses, with the ad types being:

  • Text Ad: This is a text based ad, with paid placement or promotion on a social media feed. It may be a standalone tweet, a link to a blog or an offer listing. Text ads are still highly utilised across many social platforms, with the focus on being clear, engaging and saying something that will connect with your target audience.
  • Image Ad: A lot of social platforms have their main advertising built around image ads. Whether it’s showcasing a product, offering a thought-provoking question or providing a humorous moment for your audience, there are many ways to construct an image ad that has potential to generate leads and turn viewers into customers.
  • Video Ad: It’s become increasingly accessible for even small companies to produce high-quality video ads that really command attention and communicate the best of your brand. Whether you’re trying to get your name out there as a trusted choice, advertise a new product, recruit staff or garner a little brand awareness, you can use a host of video techniques, from animation to infographics to stop motion.

Our social advertising process

While each and every client we work with receives their own personalised social advertising strategy, there is a general process by which we assess each client and determine their social advertising needs. Key stages include:

  • Getting to Know You: We’ll put the time in to understand what your business does, your key products/services and what the main goals of your social advertising would be ie. clicks through to your website, social engagement, brand awareness etc.
  • Getting to Know Your Market:  We’ll examine similar businesses in your field and audit the social media accounts of those who are doing well to see what they’re doing to operate successfully in communicating with your industry audience.
  • Target the Right Demographics: Using information we’ve gathered by researching your audience, we’ll setup targeting for your upcoming social adverts. Depending on the social platform, that may be based on job role, spending, location etc.
  • Content Management: Based on all of the research on you, your industry and your audience, we’ll build a content strategy full of ideas for different types and topics of content which our content team will write and our design team will visualise.
  • Schedule Posting: We’ll use our insight gained on each social platform, alongside research on the specifics of your industry to decide the optimum time for your posts.
  • Analysis and Review: Once the ads are live, we’ll review how the content is performing in the 24-48 hours after posting to see if it’s having the desired effect.
  • Ongoing Optimisation: Based on our analysis and review we can then make any necessary changes should there be any refinements needed for the campaign.
  • Detailed Reporting: Once the ad campaign has ended, we’ll look to offer insight on future direction by providing a detailed report with key advertising measurements.
