Everyone uses social media platforms. The choice may vary from Snapchat to Facebook. Every platform has a different user who is brand loyal. Gen-Z prefers using Snapchat while the mature audience is seen using Facebook or Twitter. The business community prefers LinkedIn and online shoppers prefer Instagram. As a Digital marketing agency, you need to have a diversified presence across all major social media platforms for maximum exposure.

3- Competitor Analysis:

To stay ahead of the curve, it is important to know your competition. The best way to get inside-out information about your competitor is by using the Google search engine for your business-related keywords and skimming through all top 10 listings. The best way of knowing your competitor is using Ubersuggest. It’s a cloud-based application that lets you analyze your competition and the services they provide.

4- Target Audience

It is very important to identify the targeted audience. For whom the campaign is focused? Is that campaign targeted towards people under 20 years of age or a mature audience, is that for the real estate or the education sector? Without identifying the target audience, the campaign will never yield good results.

5- Populating Content:

A Digital marketing agency needs to populate all content across all platforms. The best outreach medium is video, particularly the shorter version. TikTok has orchestrated ways for huge organic outreach of short videos. A video recorded in vertical format in under one minute can fetch high views, as huge as over a million. Agency should focus on creating visual content for their clients by building a story, eventually leading to a call to action by a viewer.

6- Advertisement:

Advertisement is the backbone of sales and sales is the backbone of any organization. A digital marketing agency needs to spend money on different social media platforms, primarily using videos as creative assets to escalate the chances of maximum exposure and result in more leads and sales. Remember, lead is a preliminary step that converts to sales.

7- Conversion Funnel:

Once leads are generated after paid advertisement, the next step is to mature them into sales. A funnel acts as a pyramid that reveals a complete process from establishing a footprint to creating content and eventually maturing leads into sales. I’ve personally used Getresponse and the results are amazing.
