There are over 14 BILLION active social profiles
Every business can benefit from using a good social footprint as a method of visibility and communication. The bottom line is a business without a social media presence can look dated. Consumers expect to find brands on the major social sites, often using social profiles to gauge whether they can trust the business or not.
Some social media users find their favorite brands on channels like Instagram and Facebook, only visiting the website later on. And since it’s now possible to make purchases directly from the social sites, some consumers will not even visit your main website. Social media is not the only factor in the success of an online business, but it’s certainly something few businesses should ignore.
How can your business benefit from using a social media management agency?
There are many compelling reasons and advantages of working with a social media management company. Here are a few of the top reasons you may want to consider social media services from a professional team like Chicago SEO Lyfe:
Get industry-leading expertise
While social media management isn’t rocket science, it does take a good deal of time and resources to learn the best tips and practices for all the social channels as well as implement from the creation perspective. You can leapfrog ahead of the trial-and-error learning curve with consulting or services from our experienced team.
Maximize in-house resources
Month-to-month it takes a significant amount of time for a business to develop, launch, monitor and maintain a social media content strategy in-house. Partnering with an experienced provider of social media services is a smart (and easy) solution
Access advanced marketing software
Purchasing marketing automation software can be a significant investment for an individual business. But for companies that want to succeed online, it’s a necessity. Chicago SEO Lyfe offers some of the most unique and user-friendly software that aids in the creating, approving and reporting processes involved in social media marketing.
Improve time management
Most business owners don’t have time or knowledge to manage social media on their own and can greatly benefit from trusted pros who can take that task of their plate so that they can focus on what they do best. Other companies may have in-house marketing teams. In order to provide the same level of service that a professional social media agency provides you would likely need to have at least one dedicated employee to manage your social alone. Even at a level of $1,000-$3,000 a month for our services, you would likely to be paying an employee more in salary and benefits. While having in-house staff can be great expertise and ability to streamline processes with techniques and technology we can free up your staff to focus on other tasks.
Increase social media marketing ROI
With experience comes results. Since social media is constantly changing, we stay on top of emerging social media trends and technologies so you don’t have to. We integrate the new discovered elements into our solution before the competition does, giving you maximum visibility to your customers you’re your competitors.
