Social Media Engagement is Not a Strategy

Social meida marketers are keen to drive engagement but it may not necessarily be a viable strategy. In fact, it comes at a cost.
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Mark Schaefer has a great point: we often confuse the means with the end.


In a blog post that I wrote a couple weeks ago, I explained why I thought social media publishing was dead - as we know it. One of these points was that the impact of publishing on social media for our goals is the combination of volume, quality and engagement. As Mark explains, engagement is only one variable in that equation.


So how can you convert your social media activity to make it count towards your goals? 


One of the important basic first step you can take is to make sure you publish through a content hub that you can make your own and from where you can convert visitors: to subscribe to your content, to reshare your previously published content or to sign up for whatever pre-sales activity makes sense in your business.

How to get more engagement on Facebook: a data-driven answer from 1bn posts

BuzzSumo analyzed over 1bn posts from 30m brand pages. These slides summarise the key findings and insights for content marketing and social media marketers.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

When you look at the data rather than follow opinions, there are always great things to learn. And also some counter-intuitive surprises. Who would have thought hashtags reduce engagement on Facebook for instance?


These slides give a great summary of the key learnings Neil Patel and Buzzsumo put together.


I highly encourage you to read them but there's also an important point to keep in mind: engagement should not be your end goal. As my friend Mark Schaefer once put it, social media engagement is not a strategy. To have a positive impact on your business, your content and social media efforts should ultimately aim at driving conversions, leads and customers - not just likes. And here as well, the data shows high engagement posts are not necessarily the most performing ones. A lol cat will generate likes but does it educate your potential customers toward realizing they need your product?

Here's the huge risk you're taking if you put all your eggs in your Facebook basket

Yesterday a strange thing happened; the popular site SocialMediaExaminer.com lost their Facebook page. Why? No one seems to know why the page went down; and ...
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Don Purdum makes an excellent point in this video, reacting to the fact ScoialMediaExaminer, an awesome online publication with great valuable content, lost their Facebook page for a while. 

 

You can't put all your content eggs in the same basket, ie a Facebook page you don't own.

 

We started to make this point a while ago and advocated using a content hub to host even your social media content. If you don't believe a blog or a website is needed, this video and the SocialMediaExaminer scary hickup should convince you. This is where you should host your content. 

 

But even if you do already, think about all your social posts such as your images or your witty tweets and commentary such as the one I'm making right now: they also deserve a long lasting life, be archived and help your SEO.

 

If you're thinking about building your content hub, here's a great ebook by Barry Feldman on that topic.

A step-by-step process on how to validate your social media marketing strategy
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Ian Cleary from RazorSocial outlines a few simple steps to audit your social media marketing in a few simple questions and assess whether it's time to change something or not. 


The most important question is probably #2: are you attracting an audience that converts? 


I remember we had this debate with @Ally Greer in the early days of our community management: we realized that posting pictures of cats or inspiring quotes from famous people would get us a lot of likes on Facebook. But what good did it bring to us as a business? Not much... 


Now a lot of businesses don't even stand a chance at converting social media traffic because they're mostly just sharing links and not directing traffic to their own websites. While they direct traffic to their websites when they share their own blog posts, they fail to do so with the content they curate. The first step to consider to convert social media traffic is to create a hub for your social media content and your created content: your blog is probably the perfect candidate for that (if you're wondering how to do that, check our guide to adding curated content to your blog).

8 Ways to Integrate Social Media and Blogging according to Guy Kawasaki

8 Ways to Integrate Social Media and Blogging according to Guy Kawasaki | Social media publishing and curation | Scoop.it

A few years ago, blogging and social media were separate. Blogging was long-form, serious, and crafted. Social media was short-form, personal, and spontaneous. Some people predicted that social media would replace blogging because of declining attention spans. Now blogging and social media not only amicably coexist; they complement each other. The trick is to use a blog to enrich your social media with long-form posts and to use social media to promote your blog.


Via Jeff Domansky
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Last year, one of our most successful blog post was titled: "Social Media Publishing Is Dead (as we know it)". Its premise was that because of declining organic reach for brands and pages on Facebook (that the company was open about and that in fact is impacting all other social networks), social media could no longer be considered as a standalone publishing activity. 


What do we mean by that?


Historically, many brands and companies have considered their Facebook, LinkedIn or Google+ pages as some form of web pages they could maintain by publishing content to it and generate engagement, independently of their main website. Community Managers who were independent from Content Strategists were managing these pages with different objectives than the ones being defined for the company's Content Strategy.


This doesn't work any more as many now agree, including Guy Kawasaki, the well known evangelist and author of the Art of Social Media.


Blogging (which is one of the main pillars of a successful content strategy) should be integrated with social media to form the company's content hub. The blog posts should of course be distributed on social channels and content curated by community managers or social media marketers to be published on the social channels should be hosted on the blog where they can generate engagement and conversions for the company from a web property it controls.


To do that, the basic ideas and principles are described here but Guy Kawasaki also gives 8 more interesting tips to optimize that integration in this post

Is Brand Engagement Over on Facebook?

Is Brand Engagement Over on Facebook? | Social media publishing and curation | Scoop.it

The news about Facebook lately has been pretty grim. The Wall St. Journal recently ran a piece on how smaller brands are seeing sales generated from Facebook in “the lower digits” even on pages with tons of “likes”, and Facebook recently announced that starting January 1 our newsfeeds will see even less of “promotional posts”

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

The decline of organic reach on Facebook is continuing as I observed last year calling social media publishing dead (as we knew it). In this post, @Janet Fouts describes how it's going to be even worse in 2015.


As I explained back then, the solution resides on using social networks not as your real estate but as distribution channels for content placed in a hub you control. As CMI's Joe Pulizzi also puts it: "don't build your content marketing on rented land". Even if social media is your most important activity (as a community manager for instance), if you're just sharing links, you're missing out: you should use a content hub. This can be a blog, a mini content site (such as a Scoop.it page) or something else but this needs to be a pace where you can convert your readers to either subscribe, learn about your product or engage with you directly. 



more...
Janet Fouts's curator insight, January 27, 2015 11:37 AM

I completely agree. Social media sites can't be just real estate. Get a billboard! Brands large and small will have to work a lot harder to be able to reach their network on Facebook, that means they will have to engage them, use other platforms to drive discussion too.

Instead of thinking of Facebook ads as a whole additional platform to manage, try thinking about it briefly as an additional way to promote content. As this post points out, the magic happens when readers are brought back to your site where your lead generation forms are in full force.

How to create a social editorial calendar in 4 simple steps

How to create a social editorial calendar in 4 simple steps | Social media publishing and curation | Scoop.it
Social media content calendars can help your save time and maximize your marketing efforts. Here's a simple, 4-step process to create your own social media calendar.
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Being consistent is often the key driver of success in many activities and it's definitely true with content. 

 

Michael Patterson of Sprout Social articulates nicely why and how creating an editorial calendar is a must-have to reach that consistency. 

 

But he also points out another thing: content is just one of the activities that social media marketers have to run. Listening, engaging customers are probably even as important. The consequence is they need to be very efficient with the content part so they can make it fit in their busy schedules. 

 

So here are some additional tips for them:

 

1. Automate content discovery with curation tools.

 

2. Don't use spreadsheets for your editorial calendar. Use a smart calendar system that not only schedules your content automatically based on your objectives but also keep this calendar updated in real time. 

 

3. Don't work in silos. Make sure your blog, video channels, ebook and any other content channels are integrated in the same calendar as your social channels. 

 

4. Leverage the distribution reach of your team by integrating them in your social media distribution plans. Here are 3 easy ways to make that work.

Social Media Tips to grow your Content Marketing

Social Media Tips to grow your Content Marketing | Social media publishing and curation | Scoop.it

As Social media is the most important marketing channel right now, for several brands content marketing has extensively replaced advertising as the most prominent tool to make an impact on new and old followers and customers. However, still many small businesses and individuals struggle to fit social media into their content marketing policy. In-order to enhance the reach of your content, social media enables you to control existing networks; moreover it furnishes a testing ground for broad marketing campaigns, and a lot more. 

Ally Greer's insight:

Although these ideas are far from new, they're still three important tips for anyone getting started (or not getting started) on social media.


I'm a firm advocate of #2 - reusing and resharing content. For SMBs who don't have time or resources to create an entire suite of content that will fill up social media channels for days, weeks, or even months, resharing the same content in different contexts is the way to go.
