Social Media;

Social media can be your best tool in terms of generating an audience. The number of people using social media is rising reasonably quickly. For example, in 2010 there was 0.97 Bn people using social media. Only two years later in 2012, there was 1.4 Bn people and another two years later in 2014, there was 1.87 Bn people using social media. It is estimated that in 2016 there will be 2.22 Bn people using social media and the numbers are estimated to rise even further by 2019 to 2.72 Bn people.

Them statistics alone go to show why social media can be a businesses best tool if used properly. Not only is social media free to use but you can engage with social media users instantly. This is good news for businesses who are wanting to maximize their online presence and get more attention from a wider audience.

In the past, businesses faced the problem of reaching more people to generate more customers. It proved costly and there was very rarely quick results. However, that has all changed; With the use of social media, content sharing is now much easier.

Social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook have key features in helping you push your business in the online world and become recognized by people from different towns/cities and even countries! An example of one of their best features is the hashtag. For this you simply put a hashtag(s) in relation to what you are talking about and customers can then search this and find what they are looking for. Simple!

 

Social media positives:

* Quick to engage with customers

* Free

* Options to pay for advertising

Social Media negatives:

* Can be difficult to build a following

* Big businesses dominate social media

* Not all content will relate to customers.

 

Mobile phones and internet users;

This is another important thing for businesses in modern day as it is estimated that there is 3.79bn mobile phone users. This means you can target your customers via a mobile version of your website or an app in one of the stores (Apple App Store/Play Store). The sheer volume of mobile phone users means you have a relatively large base to attract followers. So making a customers experience of your business positive is really important. More and more businesses are beginning to exploit this gem; There has been a steady increase in businesses creating mobile apps and mobile versions of their websites. However, this can prove difficult for small businesses whether it’s due to money, knowing how to and many more reasons.

The number of internet users is also at a remarkable high of around 3.419 Billion internet users. That is almost half of the world! This means you have the potential for a huge number of online customers. However, due to the high amount of social media users, large businesses have also jumped on this. Which unfortunately means it can prove difficult for businesses to get noticed online without the need to pay for advertisement.

 

Mobile phones and internet users positives:

* Large audience

* Easy to target customers

* target users on the go

Mobile phone and internet users negatives:

* Can be hard to compete with large businesses

* Can be costly; creating a mobile version of your website is not cheap

* It can be difficult to make an impact with users.

 

I have only touched on these but you can see the impact that social media can have for your business. If you use social media right, you can massively reduce your advertising costs.

Splitter HQ is used by businesses around the world. From Co-Ro in Denmark to TheSantaVideo based in the UK. Every business that uses Splitter HQ uses it for different things. During this post we will explain to you how businesses use our features and show you how we could possibly be of assistance to you.

Social Media

Many businesses use Splitter HQ for social media posts. One of our core features is our URL Shortening service. When Splitter HQ first started, this was our only product- Link Management.

Portuguese betting company Bet.Pt used our Short URL’s on social media channel such as Facebook.

They could create Short URLs and monitor the URLs progress via the dedicated Analytics page. From the Analytics page Bet.Pt could see;

How many users had clicked the URL, Where they were located, What device they used, What time they clicked and What platform they were using.

Bet.Pt also found their Click-Through-Rate was improved using us compared to Bitly.

 

Advanced Targeting

 

Also we had UK based TheSantaVideo use Splitter HQ for their paid adverts on Facebook.

TheSantaVideo actually used an Advanced Targeting Short URL- Time and Date Split.

This enabled TheSantaVideo to direct their customers to a certain page for a specified duration of their choosing up until Christmas. Once Christmas had been the destination page automatically changed.

TheSantaVideo’s marketing did not lead to any dead ends. The bestscreen-shot-2017-05-27-at-18-55-07
thing is, they can use the same URL every Christmas- meaning any paid marketing does not go to waste and can be used year on year. Splitter HQ helps businesses get a better ROI on their marketing.

 

 

 

 

Splitter HQ was also used by Zenko Properties in Leeds.

This allowed them to create clean looking Short URLs and QR Codes for their properties.

Being able to customise them and track the URL/QR Codes performance helped keep it organised and realise where their customer base was.
Zenko were able to simply share the QR Code on their marketing leaflets for the property of the month.

No matter what industry you’re in or what your business offers, a carefully planned marketing strategy is key to growing your customer base. One aspect of your plan should involve location-based marketing.

 

Why is targeted marketing important?

Targeting your potential customers based on location is hugely important to grow your customer base and boost your business sales. There are things you can do that are straightforward and easy to implement, and will pay dividends for your business in the long run. Here’s our four-step process for getting started:

  1. Monitor your sales

The first step to targeting customers based on location is doing research. If you offer different products and packages, monitor which performs best in certain countries or regions. This information can then inform any changes you make to content and the way you market to certain demographics.

  1. Localize your website

Does your website only speak to people in one location? Does it contain relevant information for customers in different countries or regions? Creating localized content is the next step in creating a great marketing campaign. You need to generate content that will be interesting and engaging for potential customers in each region or different. This could include changing the wording, using specific information about dates and locations, or changing your promotions.

  1. Concentrate on mobile

Mobile marketing is an increasingly important part of any strategy. Optimise your mobile plan to target users in different locations and you could see a boost in sales. When it comes to mobile marketing, recent research shows that over 40% of consumers feel that marketing communications they receive on mobile devices are not relevant or useful to them. With such a big market of unsatisfied customers, businesses that concentrate on their mobile marketing communications can stand out from the crowd. Targeting notifications so that they are sent at the optimum time to the optimum people is key to getting localized marketing right.

  1. Use Splitter

Splitter is the ultimate tool to accompany your localized marketing strategy. With just one simple link, you can direct customers to different webpages. It goes hand in hand with your new, updated, localised website to increase your customer base and boost your sales. You can find out more about how Splitter works by clicking here.
