Do I really need 30 mins a day per platform?

We are asked this question daily! In order to explain what happens during the 30 minutes we spend on each of your social networking platforms, we have put together a table of activities that your social mediator will conduct for you.

Facebook

Minimum posts per day: 2

Daily Management - Sharing your news and photos, responding to notifications, welcoming new businesses, adding trending content, interacting with other business pages, following business pages, adding regular polls, adding your events, creating videos, pinning posts adding to Stories and more.

Brand Awareness

Implement a growth strategy - We have many strategies to grow your network. We keep updated on Facebook algorithm changes as they happen so we are ahead of the game. We also work with Facebook Ads Manager's advanced features to run specific Facebook adverts, which ultimately grow your network with ease.

Beans on Toast - Of all the platforms, Facebook is where "Beans on toast" (or behind the scenes content supplied by you) is most essential. We will post the photos of your birthday celebrations, those award dinners, client training sessions, the baby who comes to visit, the mad person who has just completed a skydive for charity etc. Facebook is all about creating a community and without this element it will really struggle.

Twitter

Minimum posts per day: 6 tweets

Daily Management - Adding trending content, implementing a pinned post strategy, topical industry news, sharing your news, retweeting content, following your target audience, controlling your lists, responding to direct messages and more.

Brand Awareness

Implement a growth strategy - We abide by having a healthy follower / following ratio on Twitter, therefore we use other methods rather than just following lots of people to get your numbers increased. We implement a strict "notice me" strategy that works brilliantly, as well as utilising Twitter lists to maximise growth potential.

Beans on Toast - "Beans on toast" or real life, behind the scenes information is crucial for a successful Twitter account.

Are you celebrating client wins? Have you won awards? Have you attended any events or been networking? This is the type of feedback that your social mediator would expect to receive from you each week.

What's all this "beans on toast" stuff and what does it have to do with Social Media?

We stumbled upon the answer to achieving engagement quite by accident.

Julia, our founder, was in the iCon café and ordered her regular lunch - beans on toast with cheese on top.  She took her lunch back up to the office and was just about to dig in when Mark said “Julia, that is totally wrong.  The cheese goes underneath, not on top” – everyone in the office got involved and the conversation became quite heated.  Julia liked the cheese to melt into the beans, whereas Mark thought that it should be cheese on toast and the hot beans melt into the cheese.

Anyway…

Julia took a picture of her lunch, posted it on the Facebook Page and asked the audience to back her up… Should the cheese be on top or underneath?  She finished her lunch and didn’t think anymore of it until checking the Facebook page an hour later!  Ping, ping, ping – comments galore! People were really passionate about this and the online conversation continued for about 3 days!

Due to Facebook's algorithms, our 20% Content (the "salesy stuff") was seen by more people because we had received interaction and engagement on the beans on toast post.

But what about the “Social” in “Social Media”?

We all know that just producing content for your network is NOT what social media is about.  The key to social media success includes four stages.

Stage 1Build Your Platforms – Before we agree to work with you, we will look at all of your social media platforms to make sure that they are branded and indexed correctly.  Are your profiles complete?  Have you added milestones, hashtags, and verified your accounts?  Is your LinkedIn personal account linked to your company page, and have you activated the review feature in Facebook? We will check it all for you and make any adjustments necessary (with your approval of course).

Stage 2 Grow Your Network –  Who are your clients, your competitors, your prospects? Have you defined your target market and followed these people online?  Without a network, you are really just talking to yourself and we all know that this is the first sign of madness!

Stage 3Implement an engagement and listening strategy – Once you have grown your network you then need to implement a strategy to engage and talk to your network. This is where the real magic happens.  Getting involved in the conversation and finding out what makes your audience tick!

Stage 4Measure the results – As with any type of marketing, you need to measure your results.  If you do not measure your results then how do you know if you are a success?  It is important to measure, tweak and grow your social media strategy on a regular basis.
