Are You Social Media Satisfied?

 

social media fitnessIs your social media out of shape? Do you feel like you spend hours on it without ever getting the results you seek? Do you dump thousands of dollars into it with no profitable ROI? You are not alone.

Only 5% of companies are satisfied with their social media campaigns (based on a 2012 survey of more than 2,700 social media professionals conducted by Ragan/NASDAQ OMX Corporate Solutions.)

Of those respondents in the survey, many said they just don’t have time for social media. 38% of marketers spend 1-5 hours weekly on social media, 26% spend 6-10 hours and 15% spend more than 20 hours each week on social media. Despite this, only 5% said they were satisfied with their social media campaigns.

So what gives?

Isn’t social media supposed to be easy?

There are so many different social networking sites, marketing methods, rules to remember and procedures to follow that it can feel like taking on a second job. But it doesn’t have to be this difficult.

What is one reason so many brands struggle with their social media? They don’t have the right goals and they don’t have a plan. Too often people chase their tales, following after some one number or statistic or another, none of them really meaning anything. They're worried about who has the most Facebook fans or the highest Klout score. They're tracking metrics that don't matter. 

Why? Usually because some "expert" told them to. 

What if I told you that you could manage your social media in as little as 30-60 minutes per day and still be successful?

Social media has taken off in popularity over the past few years and it’s no surprise that business owners are all looking for their own way to profit from the use of it. If “everyone’s on social media” then of course brands want to be there as well. The problem lies in the fact that most social media experts don’t know the first thing about marketing. They may know how to build followers and fans or engage an audience but they don’t know how to turn that into sales leads, improving customer retention or growing the business.
