What type of social media platforms do you prefer to advertise on?
Our clients see the best results from Facebook and Instagram advertising. The capabilities are robust and the targeting is exact.
What type of results can I expect?
This is all based on your goals and KPI's (key performance indicators). The KPI's we look at are website traffic and conversions. We will evaluate how much traffic your website is receiving, and how many people actually converted into the desired result.
How much traffic can I expect?
The amount of traffic each month will vary. It depends on 1) how effective we make your campaign and 2) your advertising budget. The more fuel we have in the tank, the more results we can generate for you.
How many conversions can I expect?
The amount of conversions will also vary. We will be able to track the amount of conversions from our ads. This will allow us to use performance data of our ad campaigns to make gradual improvements. In consideration of this, we believe your conversion rate will increase over time.
However, it is important to note that there are external factors that impact conversions that we do not control. This includes the price, product quality, website destination, and market you are competing in.
Who will I be working with?
You will be assigned a dedicated social media manager. This person is trained in social media marketing and is likely to have experience working with clients similar to your industry. This person will be your main point of contact. In addition, each social media manager reports to a Director, who reviews all deliverables before it is sent to you. This is to ensure that you receive quality work and to resolve tough situations.
How will you learn my business?
Before anything, we do an audit of your business. Then, we will schedule a kickoff call with you to discuss your business and goals and any additional questions may have about your business. After the kickoff call, we will do more research and develop a strategy that is specific to your business.
How will you create ads that fit my business?
In the Kickoff call we learn more about your ad preferences. In the strategy we develop for you, it will specify the advertising approach that we will use for your business. If you approve this approach, we will start developing the ads in an ad calendar. You will have an opportunity to review all advertisements in advance before it is published.
Do I have to provide you with content for the advertisement?
No, you do not have to provide us with content. However, if you have content, we are happy to use it.
Your paid search manager can develop unique advertisements that fits your brand. We have access to stock photography, simple design software, as well as relevant news sources. We can even create content for you. We can use this to develop advertisements to engage your audience.
Will you monitor the ad campaign to make sure we do not waste any money?
Yes, your social media manager will be monitoring your advertising campaigns daily. If ads are not performing well, we will pause them and tweak your campaign.
In addition, your social media manager will be optimizing your campaign as time progress. In most situations, we are running A/B split tests in your ad campaign. This is the process of testing multiple variations of your ads, and the audiences for the ads. By testing different combinations of ads, we are more likely to identify areas of efficiency.
