Social Media Marketing Services
You might have joined Facebook to connect with old friends or make new ones. However, today, you are using the same platform to know more about trends and news. Memes interest us more than what happens in a stranger’s life. Many of us also end up shopping here. Every social media user follows at least one brand, influencer, or news platform. So, as a brand, if you haven’t explored social media marketing yet, it’s high time you do so!
Social media is not all about posting anymore; it is much more. Any good graphic designer can give you an aesthetically appealing post. However, it is the message that you portray through your post that matters. Social media does more than help you reach out to people – it helps you connect with them. As content creators and marketers, we strive to provide you with a campaign that engages your audience and makes them wait for more.
Why Use Social Media to Promote Your Brand?
Do you see the hoardings on your way when you’re going to work or coming back home? Let’s say you do. Can you recall any one ad that you see? In a rare situation, you might remember one – either because it was in your interest or something extraordinarily unique and creative.
On the other hand, if we ask you about a meme or joke you saw on Instagram in the morning, you’re more likely to remember. Isn’t it? This is the power of social media – people who are interested in your brand or content are the ones who will be able to view your post in the first place.
The audience you can explore on social media is vast. Here are some reasons why every brand needs social media marketing:
Various Social Media Platforms

Difference between Social Media Optimization and Social Media Marketing
To put it in a single word, the difference between the two lies in money. You don’t have to pay the social media platform for optimization, but you’ll have to invest a bit for marketing. In social media optimization, we make a schedule for making regular posts and putting up stories.
We get our reach to the audience through the use of hashtags. On the other hand, in social media marketing, we invest money, define the audience we want to reach, and decide on the number of days our ad is supposed to run. This can be in the form of a post or a story.
To sum it up, the following are the differences between social media optimization and social media marketing:
Point of Difference
Social Media Optimization
Social Media Marketing
Regular posting and putting up stories.
Putting up a story, image, or video ads for a brief period from time to time.
Using hashtags and keywords to promote a post.
Defining your audience and investing money to promote a post.
It should be regular.
Usually done only when necessary.
To increase reach and keep in touch with your audience.
To increase reach, engagement, leads, or sales.
Does not require much investment as posting is free.
The more you invest, the greater your ad’s reach.
Which One Should You Go For?
Ideally, it would be best if you had both. Both social media marketing and optimization have their pros and cons. Paid ads give you a much more extensive reach than hashtags cannot. However, those ads are only visible to your target audience when you’re running them. They won’t make up your profile.
You need social media optimization to maintain consistency and keep in touch with your regular followers. No matter what your brand might be into, you’ll need a mix of everything – graphics, videos, reels, and stories.
Usually, we recommend you to go for paid ads when you need to push your sales. It even works well when your page is new, and you need a lot of followers. However, running an ad every day is neither feasible nor intelligent. Thus, to maintain a social media page and grow your audience, you need a mix of both optimization and paid advertisements.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Facebook has the most users, followed by YouTube, WhatsApp, and Instagram. However, the audience you wish to approach varies on each platform. For instance, if you’re targeting the US, you’ll get more engagement from YouTube than from Facebook. If you’re targeting a younger audience, you’ll get more engagement from Instagram. For B2B marketing, LinkedIn is the best platform.
A social media post doesn’t merely comprise the visual. The concept of the message it conveys, the caption, and the hashtag together make up the post. A good post is unique, relatable, engaging, and easy to remember. Its caption is optimized to 50 characters and has the correct distribution of hashtags.
The ultimate goal of any social media page is to increase sales eventually. When starting with social media marketing, you must experiment a bit. We get a good strategy when we start planning according to the results we obtain from each month’s activity. It is designed according to your needs and past experiences combined, speculating promising results.
In the beginning, it is ideal for making one post every day. Some brands even post multiple times a day. Eventually, as your page gains popularity, you may or may not choose to reduce the frequency. However, it is more important to maintain regularity in your posting so that your audience doesn’t forget you.
When you’re creating an ad, the social media platform does show speculation of the reach you’ll get. When you increase the amount of money, the reach increases too. However, that does not imply that money is the only factor affecting your ad. The most crucial factor is the target audience you create and the content you provide them. They have a significant impact on the reach as well as conversions.
