Social Media Content Black Hole

by | Nov 27, 2017

There is an endless black hole otherwise known as Social Media Content. Its appetite for consumption is insatiable, and it serves as a good Social strategy for post-purchase consumer engagement and retention. It is NOT the best Social strategy for pre-purchase consumer Awareness, Consideration, or Conversion.

What many marketers are starting to realize is the platforms’ algorithms limit the exposure of their organic Content to a very small percentage of their Followers. A business may only reach 2-6% of their existing Followers with a Content message on a good day. On a great day, with really great and engaging video Content, that small percentage can climb higher, but it still doesn’t make for a great pre-purchase consumer target strategy.

Social Content is essentially preaching to a very small percentage of your choir for all of the creative time and effort to continuously churn it out. Again, it is a good post-purchase strategy to re-engage people who like your brand and product, but there are far better ways to utilize Social Media platforms to actually generate qualified leads and sales. At the end of the day, your marketing efforts need to drive sales and deliver a true Return on Ad Spend or Return on Investment for the effort and money spent.
