Is your business getting the most out of social media marketing?
Upside’s social media marketing consulting centers on how to use Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube to reach your audience and attain your marketing objectives both organically and through paid social advertising. We primarily help small business Clients with:
- Social media account set up (to get you up and running)
- Social advertising (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn advertising to reach specific conversion goals)
- Social Media content consulting (advising clients on content they should use)
- Social media website retargeting (how to reach website visitors on social to expand your funnel)
Social Media Set up
Many marketing experts agree that social advertising is still undervalued and relatively cheap compared to some other forms of advertising, and even though costs have risen in the last few years, paid advertising is a great way to make sure your message is actually getting out to the masses.
Upside creates a general social advertising plan for you to show you how to allocate your budget, set goals, decide which networks to be on and why, and map out how you will reach your specific audiences. We will also help you actually set up your ads and then manage your ads for you. Our ad management includes Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube. We will take your best marketing assets and put them to work for you. Video works miracles on social and is a highly advised media to leverage!
Should you use Lead Gen Form Ads or Message Us Messenger Ads? That’s all part of defining what type of plan will work for you and what type of interactions are of value to you.
Social Media Content Consulting
If you are looking for a meaningful way to use social media and perform well organically, you’ll need to develop a social media content plan that inspires community and resonates with your audience. But how do you do that and reach your business goals and financial goals? How do you do that and differentiate from local competition? Figuring that out is important because social media takes a lot of time and resources to do correctly.
In our experience, social media is used to connect, communicate, engage and share, not to directly sell. It can highlight aspects of your business where you excel but also create new ways for conversations to start. Brands who are successful understand how to use social as part of their larger marketing strategy and how to keep content centered on your Fans, not your promotions. And as a wise Client of ours has said, “be the movie, not the commercial.” By adding value and posting with “substance” you can still get organic success on social.
Social Media Website Re-Targeting
You’ve gotten people to your website, but how do you reach those same visitors when they later go to Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn etc.? Remarketing, or re-targeting is the missing link to so many small businesses’ strategies and can often get you new customers at a much higher conversion rate and lower cost/conversion, because you are marketing to prospects who have already interacted with your brand at least once. Remarketing helps you expand your funnel and create new touchpoints with prospects. Upside helps you understand how to do this the right way for your business and can help advise you and set it up.
At the same time, many networks have become “pay to play” and in order to reach your audience you’ll need a well crafted ad targeting strategy to reach your audience. Your business may be B2C but it may also be B2B, so your first step is understanding where decision makers spend time and which tactics to use to get in front of them. Upside will map out your overall plan and document which audiences you should target as well as help you understand what types of ads to use to reach your objectives.
The facts are important:
Hundreds of millions of people are on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitter etc everyday actively and the social media landscape continues to grow. Even if you are not involved on social media, your customers and your competition are probably active there. Social media marketing has already transformed the traditional marketing paradigm from a “marketing campaign” mentality to an ongoing relationship-building marketing model for small business owners.
Some benefits of social media marketing:
In addition to impacting your search engine rankings (SEO), social marketing helps achieve more direct marketing to your audience that is faster than an email blast, cheaper than advertising and more powerful than print because it allows you to do something few marketing channels did in the past: one-on-one, real time marketing with your audience.
Four key questions to ask:
1. Can I find a meaningful and profitable way to get my business involved?
2. What do I need to do to make sure I have an effective social marketing strategy that aligns to my marketing goals?
3. How can I reach my audience of decision makers?
4. How will social work in my overall marketing and sales funnel?
Don’t jump in unprepared. If you have questions about Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Blogs or other social media, it can be very helpful to sit down with your web marketing consultant and develop a social media roadmap. Click here to contact us today!

Social Media Optimization (SMO) / SEO for Social Marketing Sites
The difference between being invisible online or one page one can be whether or not your social media e.g. Facebook business page, Blog, LinkedIn account, videos etc. are optimized.
Social Media Optimization (SMO) is an important part of your entire Search Engine Optimization (making sure your business is on page one of the search engines for your keywords) program. SMO is the process of making sure that all of your social media channels, business profiles and internet marketing assets are optimized for visibility (not just your website) in the search engines and that they are strategically utilized in your linking and back linking SEO strategy.
Considering a Pay-Per-Click online advertising campaign on Long Island or NYC? Do you have a Google Adwords Campaign that is under performing? Or, perhaps it is not being used to promote the most profitable areas of your business. We can help.
