The ability for businesses to create a presence online has been one of the most revolutionary aspects of the Internet. Thanks to the internet, we now have the ability to reach millions upon millions of people across the globe without having to spend so much on TV or radio ads.
However, if you’re running a small business, choosing the right digital marketing strategy can get a little challenging. After all, how do you know which one will work best for your business?
Thankfully, social media marketing is a low-cost and highly effective way to get started with online marketing for your business. If ever you’ve considered using social media marketing, but are not quite sure what they entail, then read on.
The goal of this article is to give you an overview of what social media management is and what it takes to make the most out of social media management services:
What are the Different Types of Social Media Marketing Services?
There are several types of social media marketing services that you can choose from, but they can be categorized into two main approaches: managed and non-managed.
A managed service (or social media management) includes posting and scheduling content, driving engagement, and monitoring the performance of your social media accounts overall. The best management services will also give you detailed reports on the performance of your social media accounts against competitors.
A non-managed service approach, on the other hand, will help you optimize your account, and create and post content on your behalf, but you will have to monitor and schedule posts on your own.
Both may include content audits, strategy, content creation, and content scheduling.
How Much Does a Social Media Management Service Cost?
Services can vary depending on the service provider, but social media management services generally start at around $600 per month.
It’s important to remember that this is just the cost of basic social media management services and doesn’t include charges for additional scope. The price also depends on the project’s complexity, the number of accounts you want to manage, and how much time you want to invest in managing your accounts.
What are the Drawbacks of Social Media Management Services?
As with other kinds of digital marketing services, there are no one-size-fits-solutions regarding social media management. In other words, whatever worked for one business may not work for yours, which is why you need to find a provider that matches your needs.
Another thing that you may want to consider is that social media marketing takes some time to build up. It could take at least six months to see results from your efforts.
But the good news is, social media marketing works best for the long-term, which means that if you start today and consistently build your brand on social, the rewards will pay off and eventually snowball in months, even years to come!
