Marketing Advice from a Pro Agency

Some advice from Crown Social http://crownsocial.com/ a social media agency

“Pay attention to the audience to which you post stuff on social media.
Be real and be non-promotional and know who you are trying to target.

Start Instagram and Vine accounts. The more of these social media accounts you have the better Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Vine and Snap Chat are both super fun, but really new to the game so they really hit younger demographics. Not many people are doing campaigns with them yet, but it could be a fun way to get engagement.
Pinterest is a great platform to focus on.

If you are trying to gain traction with your brand then reach out to influencers in a non-promotional way. Casually liking their stuff or leaving comments on their posts. Once you have built up a relationship, introduce your product.
If you are trying to sell your products its always interesting to look at case studies of who is doing it right. Social commerce is growing a lot and I know Pinterest is great for that. Etsy might also be good to be on.

I don’t know if you run facebook ads, but if you do, creating multiple ads and testing what imagery and copy runs best and then refining from there is best practice. People typically relate more to ads with people in them, tho I know that’s not your main subject matter.

Also, if you can fine a create way to get their email address, email blast are typically the best way to cut through all the social media white wash. I think FB only serves up like 30% of user generated content, so often it is lost in the mix.

Also, taking a look at your analytics is a good idea. I know there are some good tools for social analytic online, but most of them cost a pretty penny. It just depends on how serious you want to be about it πŸ™‚
There’s no good free tumblr or pinterest analytics tool. Simplymeasured.com has some decent freebies for facebook, twitter, and instagram. The best free facebook analytics are the ones that facebook already provides. Twitter requires a lot of different tools for good free analytics: followerwonk, twittercounter, and tweetstats are some of my favorites.”
