What is Organic Social Media Marketing?
In the world of social media marketing, there are are countless routes you can take to achieve your goals, whether you’re focused on website traffic or brand awareness. At Starlight Social, we help promote our clients through organic social media marketing which means we get your customers/clients/followers to find you naturally over time rather than “artificially” through paid marketing. This creates a follower base that follows and interacts with your brand’s content on a more personal level.
So, when is it most strategic to choose organic over paid marketing?
While paid marketing will give you faster results, those don’t always convert to followers or new customers. This could be due to a number of things, but generally because of your paid marketing brought in single time traffic rather than recurring traffic. The main cost of organic marketing is time, but when you invest the time it will ultimately yield more authentic customer engagement and more accurate SEO (link to terms blog post) results.
For small businesses, who often don’t have the budget for paid marketing, but understand that an online presence is a must in today's current society, will reach out to firms such as ours. After a brand meeting to learn more about who they are, and through an ongoing personal relationship with them, we help share the content they create or content that aligns with their beliefs/business in an effective and fruitful way, while they focus their time and energy on non-social media business growth.
