How important is Social Media in driving footfall to my landing pages?
The goal of social media is to generate awareness, so it needs to be perfectly executed from the outset. Here’s how:
Before you get posting, think about where fans of your brand hang out. We recommended focusing on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as these social media platform lend themselves well to consumer content.
Add value and be consistent
When posting, focus on creating helpful, engaging content, rather than self-serving drivel. To do so, be clear about the value proposition you’ve designed and demonstrate it clearly and consistently.
Be a perfectionist
Make sure you design your post to include beautiful imagery of your Appointment Bookings service or it’s benefits to your customers.
Posting content to the masses is great. But for extra personalisation and to spin challenges into positives, encourage your social media teams to include links to your Appointment Booking service in responses to customers with questions or complaints. For example if a customer is complaining on social media about a poor customer experience in one of your stores, apologise to them and include a link to your booking service, ensuring they get a better experience next time.
Using your social media channels to regularly post content ensures your message will be seen by high-volumes of your current followers. However, to get your content in front of wider audiences, you can use various paid advertising options across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to boost posts and specify the audience you wish to target. Remember to ensure a clear value proposition as there is no one size fits all – keep it relevant to your audience.
