Never Creating Marketing Goals
Before we dive too deep into Facebook marketing, it’s important to ask yourself what your goals are. You might ask yourself the following questions to start
- Do I want to get follows and likes for vanity purposes?
- Is building audience engagement my top priority?
- Is social media a listening or customer service tool for my brand?
- Do I expect social media to build awareness about my brand or is it merely a tool to convert sales?
Take a look at your goals from time to time. Make sure you’re on the right track and if not, assess what you can change about your social strategy.
Never Creating a Content and Marketing Strategy
It’s vital that businesses come up with a content and marketing strategy that outlines tone, audience, content, and consistency. Some quick tips on content:
You Need to Know Your Audience. If you want to create advertisements on Facebook, it’s absolutely necessary to know your audience. Details such as age, gender, location, and interests can all contribute to a more targeted marketing campaign and can even save you money by narrowing your audience down to the people who would be most interested in what you have to offer.
Feature Rich Images & Video. If you don’t already have a portfolio of attractive images and/or video, plan to start one. Create visuals using applications like Canva. There’s no excuse to post low-quality content in 2019.
Decide on Tone and Purpose. Your Facebook page shouldn’t only include posts about your brand’s awards, news, and events. Give your audience a reason to like the page and return. Most brands accomplish this by posting content that is informative, entertaining, or both.
Lack of Resources
The most common resource issues include lack of budget and lack of high-quality content. However, one resource few businesses seem to consider is manpower.
Never Checking Facebook Insights
Facebook Insights offers an incredible wealth of data about your customers and page. Insights provides information about things like:
- Engagement over time
- The best days and times to post
- Your page’s responsiveness to messages
Using this information, you can make educated calls about what changes to make to your page and social strategy.
You Post Too Often or Too Little.
The brute force approach to social media very rarely works. In fact, this might lead to unfollows and negative feedback from users who get annoyed by it. In an effort to maintain a constant stream of content, quality may even decrease.
