Making social media work harder for small business

Do your social media channels connect you directly with your target customers? Do they show your business at its best? Do they generate sales leads or bring you customers? Here are some of the ways we can help you achieve all this and more.

01. strategy

Concerned that social media can cost you time and money to not much effect? A clear, actionable strategy will target the right audience, setting out where and when to find them on social platforms. It will reflect your company’s personality and values, and use a tone of voice that suits your business.  It will complement your other marketing materials and methods and set measurable goals.

02. being sociable

Becoming a sociable brand makes all the difference. Social media is exactly that – social! Engaging with and relating directly to your potential customers and relevant collaborators is what turns good content into great social marketing. We can take care of this for you – or train your team to do a fantastic job of creating genuine leads on social media.

03. content

If, like many small and medium-size businesses, you don’t have the time or budget to keep creating expensive content, we will devise a content plan that’s both practical and manageable. Engaging content will show your target customers that you understand their interests and needs, creating genuine connections  – and making them, in turn, take an interest in you.

04. testing & responding

Do you feel that social media changes too fast for you to keep up? Staying on top of algorithm changes and trends – and reacting accordingly –  will keep you in front of your target audience. We can manage your channels and report back; provide training so that you can monitor your own activity accurately; or provide regular audits to help you stay on track.

solving the social media puzzle

Do you know which social media platforms are best for your business? Do you know who your target customers are and where and when to find them online? Can you see what’s working well (or not so well) and how to make it better? At Wordstar we clear a path through the social media jungle and build your steps to success. 

why Social Media matters

 Only half of small businesses use social media daily as part of their marketing strategy, but 83% of UK adults use at least one platform – and for many, finding out about products and services is a key reason for going online. Isn’t it time you stepped up on social?
