Can Social Media Marketing Be Outsourced?
 

Can Social Media Marketing Be Outsourced?

Social media plays a very vital role in the online presence of a business or the brand, and more and more consumers are turning to these outlets to connect with brands they like. Social media is the best way to actively engage with your customers both active and potential, and if done cautiously and correctly, can of great advantage to your business by targeting a specific audience for your brand. So, it is safe to say that using social media as part of your business marketing plan has become sin qua non in an ever increasing digital world.

A tweet on Twitter, a status update on your Facebook page; a post on Google+, a picture of your product on Pinterest, is it that simple? Actually "NO." It is much more than that. In order to derive the benefits out of your social media marketing plan, you need to dedicate a large amount of time and resources for this activity. Social media requires you to be actively engaged in the community in order to keep yourself visible and always in touch with your audience. Well, let's analyze how the Social Media Marketing works for the benefit of your business.

Like traditional advertising, social media marketing only works if it's engaging and relevant to your target audience. Specifically dedicating your social media posts or tweets to selling a product or service doesn't create a long term relationship with your audience. Because people don't come to you just for seeing your products and services you are offering. Even the catalogs can serve the purpose, you need to understand that people come on social media for keeping themselves connected with people and things they love. So, you cannot publish the same content and pictures on all your social media channels, every channel you use has a different purpose, so it is really very important to vary the message from platform to platform, much like you would with radio, television, or print. An effective social media marketing campaign requires the time, knowledge, and consistency for which you need to have an eye for looking what do your audience want and expertise to serve them what they want from you. In order for your social media marketing campaigns to be effective, an overall knowledge of how customers interact with your brand on a certain social platform is required. Chances are, neither you nor anyone else in your business has an extensive knowledge of social media networks, and even if you do, you are tied up in other responsibilities to effectively utilize your skills. All this requires a specific skill set.

And speaking of social media marketing, don't forget online marketing sites. You can visit 40billion.com which is a fastest-growing network of entrepreneurs and crowdfunders. They specialize in promotion of small businesses by broadcasting and promoting to its large network of several million users across the most popular social networking sites for small businesses - including Twitter, LinkedIn, 40Billion, and even Facebook. Innovative services such as promoted company listings were created for small entrepreneurs to tap into a growing, active network online without spending thousands on pay-per-click ads or traditional advertising. They also offer crowdfunding promotion and promote crowdfunders and their campaigns/projects.

In these cases, outsourcing the Social Media Marketing is the best option. A good Social Media Marketing Agency can dedicate the necessary time and resources required to constantly serve your customers and keep you always in the social stream and maintain your social presence. They do charge a monthly or yearly fee for the service. But if you don't have enough money to pay to the Social Media Marketing Agency, you can look for a
Professional and Experienced Social Media Marketer, who can work for you on Freelance basis and would charge you comparatively very less than the Social Media Marketing Agency, and he/she would also deliver you better results than the agency, for the simple reason that he is dedicatedly working only for you unlike the Agencies who work for various clients at the same time.

So, Good Luck, make the Best Use of Social Media !

The Real Reasons Why VC Investors Delete Your Emails
 

The Real Reasons Why VC Investors Delete Your Emails

What should you include in an introductory email to a potential VC investor if your goal is to actually get them to open it and read it? Although every investor pitch and every investor is different, these 4 blunders are common to most of the unsuccessful ones:

1) The email has a worthless subject line.

Too often, entrepreneurs use boring, worthless subject lines in their investor pitches. Your subject line is your make or break. If it's interesting and relevant, the email gets opened. If it's vague, the email gets deleted without a second thought.

Make sure your subject line is specific, concise and relevant to the recipient. Even better if you can make it interesting. Think objectively... Would you open this email?

2) You didn't ask for anything.

It may seem obvious, but ask any investor how many pitches fill their inbox with specifying what the sender wants. Your pitch needs to request something that is relevant to what your recipient specializes in.

Whether you're seeking advice about an industry that the recipient recently invested in, seeking an introduction to a potential partner, or seeking a lead investor in your next fundraising round, latch your company or product to something the investor cares about.

Go back and read a few recent comments or portfolio deals that the recipient participated in. Check out their social media accounts too.

3) Your message is too verbose.

You need to respect the recipient's time (or lack thereof). The longer it takes for you to effectively communicate your pitch, the higher the likelihood your email will get deleted. Think, short sentences, small paragraphs.

Even better... Condense your email into just a few lines. This is easier said than done, but, for an introductory email, sometimes that can be an effective teaser. Keep it short and simple.

4) There are no links.

Never send unsolicited attachments, such as 50-page business plans. Instead, give your recipient the ability to learn more with relevant links to stuff that's actually useful. Put yourself in your recipient's shoes. If you're interested, what more would you want to know? Be clear about what each link leads to - for example, "For some screenshots, go here" link, or "For a demo, go here" link.

And to keep the email clean, use shortened links or just hyperlink action words, such as "go here."
