F.A.Q: Social Media + Digital Marketing for Business

Does every business need to use social media and digital marketing?

Many businesses have a limited presence online and do just fine. With that said, if you want the most efficient and effective methods of communications and marketing, you’ll want to take an integrated approach. That means  leveraging all the tools and tactics available online so you spend your time and resources on the stuff that gets you more consistent results, faster.

How much should my business spend on marketing?

It’s common to hear the recommendation of 5-10% of your gross revenue should be earmarked for marketing. 

Where will we get the most return on marketing spend for our business?

What we’re seeing in medium sized business is that they allocate the above mentioned budget, but have no idea where to spend it. Traditionally, it was common to spread marketing budgets across traditional methods such as T.V., newspaper, magazine or radio. In fact, I’ve spoken to medium-sized business owners who spend nearly $2k a month for ads on a major TV network (*not including the price to actually develop the commercial.) However, they had no idea whether it brought in new business or even created meaningful brand awareness. The amazing thing about social and digital marketing is that we know what’s working (or not) because we get information in real time (instead of blowing our entire budget blindly and all at once.) 

We’re so comfortable with traditional methods of reaching people that we don’t consider whether it’s still effective or not. With social media and digital marketing you actually have access to data and insights that can help you make better decisions with advertising dollars. Beyond being an additional way to generate ‘word-of-mouth’ buzz about your business, it’s a proven way for businesses to reach people they otherwise wouldn’t be able to and on a scale that wasn’t possible before. Using sites like Facebook, you can drill down to your ideal client type and focus on getting information to them using the right information at the right time (which is much more efficient than putting a blanket ad in a publication and hoping the right people see it!)

    I had the pleasure of working with Kat and the Rogers team earlier this year. Within my current role at LinkedIn, I help financial services teams better understand social media and how to leverage our platform to drive results. Out of the hundreds of industry leaders that I've met, Kat is one of the few early adopters that truly understand the value and necessity of leveraging social media. She’s extremely knowledgeable and passionate about social selling, and I highly recommend her as a thought leader and driver of innovation in the insurance industry.

    I was very fortunate to participate in some of Kat's facilitated sessions around social media usage and guidelines. I very quickly saw how it all ties back into the communication strategy and reputation of an organization and the far-reaching impact of it's use, or misuse. I found her sessions eye-opening on multiple levels; as a user, consumer, employee and HR professional. Kat's organized approach to delivery offers impactful relevant learning to individual employees and businesses alike. She has a no nonsense, practical approach that I can really get behind as an HR practitioner. Businesses and individuals alike need a trusted resource like Kat to help them formulate a strategy that aligns with their brand or objectives. I highly recommend (and personally) align with her vision and approach as a professional. The influence and impact of social media and communication is far too important to approach without a carefully considered and well carried out strategy, and as either an individual or an organization, Kat is definitely someone you want on your side to help build and execute yours.
