In this episode…
In a world where the public increasingly demands transparency from companies, social media platforms provide a window into a business’s personality and values. This information helps consumers decide whether to work for or do business with a particular organization. However, in terms of reaching an audience, is social media a sales or marketing tool?
Social media manager Katrina Syrris explains that social networking provides brand awareness but still supports conversions. Nevertheless, using social media effectively is crucial to achieve your desired results. If your business’ conversion rates continue declining, the next step is to start tracking analytics or refine your strategy. Social media is a powerful tool to position your brand as a cultivated thought leader and build a relationship with a desired audience. When used correctly, these platforms exhibit a company’s significance in the community. Additionally, social media allows brands to interact with the public and gives them a voice to address positive and negative feedback. Social media is constantly evolving, so adapting your strategies as needed is essential.

Katrina shares strategies for successful campaigns, preferred management tools, and discusses the differences between using social media as a marketing tool and as a sales tool.
