CREATE TARGETED SOCIAL ADS
Social advertising is a powerful way to amplify your efforts on social media. But spending huge amounts of budget blindly isn’t a smart move, especially if you are targeting the wrong audience!
Targeted ads are essential to see results and generate leads on social media. Your database contacts are aware and interested in your brand, so stay connected by setting up a series of social ads.
Uploading your database .csv file to Facebook will allow you to create Custom Audiences for future ad campaigns on Facebook. Getting in front of these contacts will prove much more profitable and help you make the most of your social advertising budget.
SHARE VALUABLE BLOG CONTENT
Producing high-value content will help establish your brand as an industry leader. Blogs are a fantastic platform to promote your expertise and keep your website up-to-date.
Increase traffic to your website by directing your database contacts to topical blog posts. Consider what questions clients commonly ask and find ways to address these in an upcoming blog.
Get contacts clicking by sending them a personalised email promoting your latest blog post. Your database is more likely to do business with you if they are aware and interested in what you do. Assert your company’s skills and expertise in written copy to build brand awareness and rapport with potential clients.
