Why Your Company Needs Social Media Advertising
Social media advertising describes the paid efforts that a company takes to market their products and services on social sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. When you see a post that says “Sponsored” on these sites, you know that’s part of a social media advertising campaign.
But why isn’t organic reach enough on social platforms? We all know it’s free to post on all four of these social sites, so paying to boost posts may not seem necessary. However, social media advertising is one of the single most lucrative methods of paid advertising on the web.
First off, the new, non-chronological algorithms on these social platforms make it much more difficult to gain organic visibility. This means that even the people who follow you may not see your content. But with social media advertising, you can reach users who aren’t even following you in the first place.
And not only can you reach more users, you can tailor your reach to specific audiences, targeting users based on their geographic location, personal interests, gender, and age. Having this level of control over who your marketing efforts reach is virtually unparalleled.
