With algorithm changes, trends that come and go and the importance of creating content that resonates with each customer, social media can be overwhelming for any business owner.
Social media can feel like the Wild West because there are no hard and fast rules, only best practices and recommendations,
If you ask ten marketers how many hashtags you should use on Instagram, you will get ten different answers.
Let’s start at the beginning.
Is a social media manager worth it?
Before hiring a social media manager, you must understand what you want to get out of the relationship. Unfortunately, some business owners make the mistake of hiring a social media manager without understanding their KPI’s first, or they may have unrealistic expectations.
Will every single one of your posts go viral? No
Will they have a direct line to Instagram? Probably not, but if they do – please send me their contact information – thanks!

What are the benefits of social media marketing in Edmonton?
1. See more return on investment!
If you’re reading this, you may already feel that traditional marketing doesn’t work as well anymore. We are bombarded with print, banner, and billboard ads; we’ve become numb to them. But Social Media creates a different relationship with your customer. Not only is there a two-way conversation, but you can also get honest feedback from your customers in real-time, and at the end of the day, you’re able to track the traffic to your website from these platforms.
2. Get brand exposure to thousands of potential new leads every month.
What would introducing your brand to thousands, if not tens of thousands of new homes every month, cost in traditional marketing? With social media, you have entire platforms dedicated to the customer experience. Want a chance to engage with your audience, have meaningful interactions, and attract them organically!
Social media is one of the few ways to get your brand/products in front of many people, far and wide, without you having to spend a ton of money while avoiding the hard sales pitch.
3. Convert leads to sales even faster than before!
Social Media allows you to build the “know, like, and trust” before your customer even steps through your door or visits your website. If you aren’t actively spending time online, you miss many opportunities.
4. Stop spending your time on social and start growing your business instead.
You know your clients are spending their time on Social Media, and it’s a wise investment for any brand because it gives you a huge opportunity. But – if it’s taking you away from the money-making part of your business, it won’t work.
Instead, consider hiring a professional social media manager.
