Social Media Marketing

Your customers are talking. Are you listening?

Get social with your customers

Social media websites are seen as the authority by search engines and can affect the consumer’s perception of a business, product or service. Don’t ignore this channel, thinking your brand or product is boring or that you may not have anything interesting to say. People are searching for products and services like yours on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and whatever hip new platform hits the market. Don’t miss out on reaching your target audience.

As search engines put increasingly more weight in social, your customers are too. Let us help you develop a social strategy by listening to your current and potential customers and engaging with them in a timely manner. We can develop strategies for your marketing team to implement or manage your entire social campaign for you. Either way, we’ll make sure you’re always operating under all social media best practices.

Integrated Social Branding

We can help you maintain an online integrated marketing communications strategy by designing a unified brand image across all of your social media channels. Research suggests that images shared throughout all marketing material have a greater impact on advertising response and retention rates. Help your customers recognize and remember your brand with Evolve’s integrated social branding strategy.

Social Media Marketing Strategy

With well over 75 frequently used social networks online, developing a social strategy can be a daunting task. The key is to set (and stick to) specific goals that are measurable, attainable and time-bound. We’ll begin with a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis of your current social activities and focus on areas that need immediate attention first. Then we’ll research the conversations already taking place online in your industry to gain insight for the overall strategy. Finally, we’ll develop a social persona related to your brand’s image for use throughout the campaign.

Social Media Editorial Calendar

A comprehensive social media editorial calendar is the road map of your campaigns. Managing posts across several different platforms doesn’t need to be challenging. A schedule of post types for each platform is your guide to populating meaningful, sharable content that can be scheduled out weekly. Each social platform presents exclusive social marketing opportunities for your brand including a large cover photo, innovative ways to post content and the ability to attach images and video. Evolve is here to help you manage your editorial calendar at any level. Whether you would like help with development of a calendar, implementation, or an educational session about how to post, where to post and when to post, Evolve is always here to help.

Social Media Reporting

Social media marketing efforts are measurable when a social media campaign is well planned before execution. It is crucial that goals are specified and benchmarks are determined prior to launch to properly measure and report results. We will review your analytics and work closely with you to establish measureable goals and objectives. We will also determine what tools we will use to monitor and measure your campaigns to provide the most accurate performance data. You will be provided with easy-to-read, up-to-date reports that will include important analytics and statistics from all of your social media channels. Our customized social media reports can be completed monthly or quarterly. Year-end reports can also be completed to aid in the development of the upcoming year’s strategy.

Social Media Community and Crisis Management

Social media requires care, constant attention to detail and swift action, if needed. We know that managing a social media community can be a daunting challenge. Especially for a small to mid-size business with a team of one or two individuals, we can help.

Monitoring the conversations that that take place about your brand, product or service are critical when growing your online community. This will show you what your audience is doing, thinking and feeling about you, and how they will respond. You need to be actively engaged in their conversations. We will help you develop and manage your community with our four-step plan:

  • Listening
  • Interpreting
  • Preparing and Reacting
  • Monitoring

Amber Bacon - Great Lakes Cheese

“In the beginning, Great Lakes Cheese had zero social media presence; then we partnered with Evolve. Our partnership started with a sole focus on establishing a social media footprint to increase company visibility for new hire candidates. Evolve did just that.

Todd and his team devoted much of their time learning our complex business to make sure we differentiated ourselves from industry competitors, and stood out as the employer of choice.

The team overall is a joy to work with. Everyone is knowledgeable, committed, and in high spirits at all times. I would recommend Evolve Creative Group to anyone in need of best-in-class website design or online marketing.”
