This week’s episode is all about social media. I’m joined by Gerard Murnaghan, General Manager & Vice President of Sprout Social, a business that offers a suite of social media solutions that supports organisations and agencies in extending their reach, amplifying their brands and creating real connections with their audiences.
Why social media?
Social media channels are now essential to a businesses digital profile. The pandemic has fuelled the online presence of businesses, causing everyone to adapt so they would be left behind.
We go on to speak about there being a lack of appreciation for how much effort that goes into it and the perception of finding the job done faster and at a cheaper price. Time is a key element when it comes to content creation as this gives you the opportunity to get creative.
Think outside the box and create authentic content that resonates with your audience. This is what will set you aside from your competitors generic content.
Your audience will know if you’re not putting any effort into your social media. It will come across to them that you as a business don’t care. When they get this impression they will be more likely to shop around.
If you really want to make it a success you should be putting as much attention, awareness, results and money as you can.
I hope you all stay safe. Enjoy the episode!
