To integrate social media marketing with our overall marketing and business strategies
Social media marketing is not a stand-alone practice! It should be fully integrated into not just our overall marketing strategy, but also our business strategy
Why Social Media? ... to get MORE BUSINESS ... and SALES!!!
Whether we are using it to learn more about prospects/TA or to raise awareness for our products and services, it all falls down into getting MORE BUSINESS - directly or indirectly
To achieve this, we need to implement S.M.A.R.T business goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound)

Be Active Rather Than Passive
Social media is not a "set it and forget it" type of medium! We have to stay on top of our prospects’ minds
If we are not constantly asking questions, providing value, helping prospects, replying to requests…etc, then we are not using social media in its appropriate form
It is minor actions that seem irrelevant to most and that we do each day that will land us that major media appearance, big clients or whatever opportunity that will literally move our business to the next level
It is been proven many times that prospects need multiple exposures to brand messages before they decide to take action whether to contact you, buy from you etc
Engage Rather Than Sell
Social media marketing mostly lies in the “Not So Direct” approach to selling. There are ways we can make direct sales on social media
These ways are not restricted to - the messaging, the tone, the type of content…etc
Content is what really matters when it comes to selling on social media. We can’t just post on our Facebook page that we have this awesome product which we want our audience to check out. It has to be consumer relevant
The right way to go on social media is to build excitement for our product first so people get curious about it. Then we share interesting stories/case studies of people who have used it and liked it.
We can run some contests/sweepstakes to spice up our promotion even further and get more eyeballs to our products.
We can also set up groups, do webinars or Google hangouts if we want more engagement with our fans and followers.
By the time we launch our product; many people will jump on board because they now know us, trust us and want to buy from us
Consistency Is Key
Social media is not a “Set It and Forget It” approach
We can’t blast our followers with great engaging content today and take a break a week after
The rule of thumb to social media success is whenever our prospect thinks of our industry, we should always come up at the top of the list
How to make a room for our brand in our prospects minds? We need to be unique, creative, interesting…and all those stuff that will set us apart from the competition - ON A CONSISTENT BASIS
Tracking Performance
This is where all of our efforts come into judgment. The only way we can improve our performance on social media or any other medium is by tracking what worked and what didn’t
Unless we do this, we will probably be wasting lots of time on tactics we think would work, but they don’t
There are many sophisticated tools in the market today that can give us exactly which tactic is contributing to our business’s bottom-line and which isn’t
We can also make use of the most basic form of tracking by monitoring clicks and seeing how many have translated into leads or sales.
Google Analytics
is most suitable for such tracking, and so far it’s been really flawless in terms of tracking what converts and what doesn’t
Final Thought
As we must have noticed above, social media is always about people and never about the tools. We could have an arsenal of super sophisticated tools that can do all sorts of different stuff, but it won’t make a difference in our business if “people” aren’t at the center of our strategy. Our mindset should be clocked along with people’s needs and problems. If we maintain that simple principal, social media will be the best thing to ever happen to our business
Spur acceptance of Latina Flavors and create an emotional connection between the brand and consumer
