Most campaigns have a recommended minimum spend of £1500 to have a successful impact.
Social media advertising is a way of increasing a company's brand awareness, sales and orders, by using adverts on popular social media platforms or by communicating with current followers through regular and interesting postings.
The great thing about this type of marketing is that you are able to target a specific audience by location, age and interests – meaning wastage is minimal. With this form of marketing, you really can be highly targeted and specific.
Paid for adverts will appear on a target market's newsfeed in the form of posts, videos and photos - you basically pay a set amount to gain more exposure.
You can also look at promoted or boosted posts. Furthermore, there are the options of capturing new “likes” and “followers”, driving clicks to your website, creating email lists and more, through targeted campaigns. All these options mean you can build new and also manage ongoing consumer relationships.
Retargeting also works very well, meaning that people near you (or who know of you) and have already looked at your products (or similar ones) can be tracked; this means that your advert will appear in the feeds of people who will have a strongly likely interest in what you are offering.
This high level of targetting means that this form of online marketing is extremely cost-effective.
The simple answer is yes, providing you put the right product or service in front of the right people, at the right time.
Obviously, there is no point in trying to advertise something unsuitable, so it is important to do your research and get a clear understanding of your target market. If you are uncertain about who these may be, contact us and we can help carry out research or offer some professional advice.
The second most important thing when creating social campaigns is making sure your advert looks both professional and engaging, it needs to stand out from all the other information, comments and news appearing in newsfeeds – you don’t want to get lost or fade into the background. You need to be relevant, engaging and interesting.
Our designers at PromoMedia are able to create content for ad campaigns that draw an audience's attention and encourage interaction. Competitions or blogs also work well in driving engagement and interaction - after all social media to many is a fun outlet and not a sales platform.

The costs for advertising on social media varies depending on a number of different factors but the true beauty is that budgets can be easily set and managed.
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the main other platforms, are not all owned by the same company. They also have different “reaches” and types of users, so the cost of their ads varies greatly. The main contributing factors to costs include:
The social media platform you want to use
The Length of the campaign - basically how long you want it to run
The number of people you are trying to reach - whether you are trying to reach people in a small geographical location, or on a national or even international level.
There are many benefits to this form of marketing. One of the great things is that you can set "spend limits" on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, so there are never any nasty surprises.
Another great benefit is that campaigns are continually optimised, so the longer they run often the more successful they become. This is obviously unlike most forms of advertising, for example, you can't change a static billboard when it is in place, or amend a radio or TV when it is being broadcast.
Another benefit of social media advertising (and general online marketing including SEO and online search) is that most budgets can be catered for. This is why this form of advertising is carried out by most companies to some extent or other.
Finally, with this form of marketing, if the campaign isn't working, you can pause or reduce spending, likewise, if it is, you can up the spending and target even more people. It's totally flexible.
There is no set answer for this - as with any marketing medium it depends on what you are selling, however, we always advise that when selecting which social platforms to advertise on, put yourself in the mind of your customer. Think about what social media channels they are using, for example, LinkedIn appeals to professionals in their 30s and 40s, Twitter has a massive following with those in the 20 and 30s, Facebook is great for almost anyone.
Don’t just think about the one that you personally use, that may not always be the most suitable and is a common mistake.
In recent years there has been a huge rise in the use of social sites.
With this growing year on year and users based all over the world, it is important for businesses to consider advertising online (or at least having a strong online presence) and through these popular channels. Social is a great way of revealing "the personality" of a business. A website is great but it only really gives off factual information about what you have to offer. Social can incorporate a range of messages; some fun, some information as well as up to date to news and comments.
At PromoMedia we keep up to date with all the latest trends in online and social marketing and we do this by working with online specialists based across the world; this we believe keeps our clients up to date and ahead of the game. Social and online is the fastest developing form of marketing - when you think about it, it didn't even exist 15 years ago!
Our specialists provide bespoke services to help you create engaging content, competitions, promotional offers and increase likes and followers from people both nationally, internationally and in your surrounding area - whatever you are looking, we can cater for.
To find out what options would best suit you and your company get in touch.
As with most form of advertising combination marketing works wonders; no effective advertising campaign can be run through one marketing medium. The beauty of social media is that it can complement any other kind of promotional platforms, speak to our media planning teams.
if you want more info but we find that social works well with:
Outdoor Advertising - highly-visible, outdoor ads reach a huge amount of people but they often don't have time to take in all the information if driving past a billboard on sitting on a train, but with interest stimulated they often look up a company or product later on - often finding these brands and companies via their social or website.
TV ads - similar to outdoor, these ads can hit millions of people, however, a 30-second ad only carries a certain amount of information, so a potential customer will undoubtedly come looking for more information online - make sure you are there.
Radio - often listened to when driving, at work or generally busy, consumers again come back when they more time to absorb information.
Contact us for more information on any traditional form of advertising.
As with any forms of marketing, we take a few simple steps before moving forward with your campaign:
Identify your target audience - Who are they? Where do they live? How old are they? What are their hobbies? Put yourself in their shoes.
Research which social media platforms your audience uses the most - this will be determined when you have identified a strong target audience.
Decide which is the best way to reach them – posts, adverts, “Likes”, competitions, offers etc. What do they like? How do they typically interact with social posts etc?
Suggest a budget - you can set one or we can suggest. This will all boil down to how many people you are looking to reach, the time scale and your general aims and ambitions.
We launch the campaign - off we go! We will launch and continually review to make sure that it is performing, keeping in contact with you, let you know how it is going, and tweaking aspects if necessary.
Our experts are always happy to help, so if you have any questions or queries please get in contact, one of our friendly team will provide more information on the services we offer to and how to make this work for your company.
