Being accessible to your customers – and your prospective clients – via social media is a vital means of developing relationships with them and helping them through the sales funnel.
Answer: Success is measured using the same metrics you use for any other marketing activity: traffic, leads, and customers. Counting the number of fans or followers you have can help you understand your social media reach, but the bottom line that determines its success is how many people it drives to your site, how many of them are qualified leads, and how many of them actually become customers.
Answer: One thing is for certain – social media marketing is never free. Whether you’re spending your own valuable time on it, asking an employee to add it to their workload, hiring a social media employee, or outsourcing to a marketing firm, there is always a cost. The key is to get the maximum ROI out of the time or money you put into it. It’s important to remember, however, that ROI doesn’t have to mean revenue. It can, but it can also mean meeting other objectives, such as getting new leads, increasing email subscriptions, or even boosting customer satisfaction. The ROI you end up with is the direct result of how focused your social media marketing strategy is.
Answer: Yes! A blog is one of those non-negotiables. Apart from all of the benefits it provides on its own, such as increasing your credibility as an industry expert, and providing fresh, keyword-rich content on a regular basis to please the search engines, a blog is a vital component of social media marketing.
One of the most effective types of content to post on social media is a link to a blog post. Without fresh blog posts being shared on a regular basis, you won’t have nearly as much to talk about with your fans, and you won’t be driving as much traffic to your site, either.
Answer: It’s important for both, but in different ways.

Answer: LinkedIn has over 467 million users. It is a great place to share your credentials with the world, but more importantly, it’s the perfect place to interact with your audience online. Using LinkedIn Groups, you can answer questions and contribute to discussions in order to demonstrate your industry thought leadership as well as your willingness to help others generously.
Answer: Though it started out looking promising, Google+ is one platform we don’t recommend using for marketing purposes anymore.
Answer: Videos are becoming more and more important in the world of social media marketing. YouTube gets over 4 billion views per day! Promote your brand’s image through a video, let your audience have a peek behind the scenes at your business, or make a how-to video.
Answer: Guest blogging is one of the most effective and widely discussed methods of outreach, but social media can help your outreach efforts significantly, as well. Connect with other influencers in your industry via social media, and then build relationships with them through conversations and helping them to promote their content. Building a relationship in this way before reaching out to ask for a guest blogging opportunity can boost your chances of success greatly – and when your audience sees that you regularly converse with other experts via social media, they’ll see you as an expert, too!
Answer: Taking “control” of your brand isn’t really possible anymore, thanks to social media. Whether you’re in the conversation or not, people will talk about you online, and there’s no way for you to “control” what they say. But what you can do is join in those conversations, and influence them by being a part of them. From negative reviews on Yelp to customer complaints on Twitter, the way to influence your audience’s perception of your brand is to participate in the conversations, and steer them in a direction you’re happy with.
Answer: A company’s social media activities don’t have to all come from the same place – but they do need to be coordinated, and that can be hard to do when each department is doing their own thing. Sending differing messages causes more confusion to customers than anything else – consistency is key.
Answer: Timing is everything in social media marketing. The good news is, by using social media you have the opportunity to reach your specific audience in real-time. But even though there are many tools you can use to schedule and automate posts to save some time, you’ll also want to keep track of the activity on your social media accounts throughout the day, so that you can provide timely responses to audience questions and comments. Between strategizing, creating and posting content and images, responding to your audience, and checking analytics, social media done right can be a full-time job.

Answer: When people talk about “mobile,” they may ask you if your website and emails are “mobile friendly” or “mobile responsive.” This is basically a technology question that addresses how different platforms and devices display content.

As noted above, the key is to send mobile-friendly communications to your readers. Next, invest time in the mobile search. Claim your listing on search apps and websites. Finally, enlist your readers to do mobile marketing for you. Encourage them to use their phones at your business or events to take photos, write reviews, and share with their networks.
Answer: These are two important email marketing metrics that should serve as the initial measure of your email marketing success.
Email deliverability rate (or acceptance rate) is the success rate of getting an email delivered to a person’s email address. To find out the deliverability rate of your email marketing, you simply take the number of emails delivered and divide it by the number that were sent.
Answer: Spam reports: how many times your emails were marked as junk mail/spam by recipients.
Answer: Unsubscribes: how many people unsubscribed from your emails.
Answer: Inbox rates: how many delivered emails actually made it into someone’s inbox (rather than their junk folder).
Answer: Bounce rates: the percentage of emails that were rejected by recipients’ mail servers.
Answer: Over time, you need to track your email marketing efforts alongside your larger goals, whether they’re direct sales (like B2C retail companies), website traffic and conversions (B2B or B2C with long sales cycles) or referral business.
Answer: Similar to the best day/time to send an email, this question can also be a bit slippery to nail down. It’s like comparing apples and oranges. Even if two people in the same industry sent the same email at the same time with the same content, they could have very different open rates due to factors like list quality and personal relationship.
Answer: Once a month is fine for keeping your name in front of someone. Two-three times a month leaves enough time in between emails so you don’t become a nuisance. Obviously, four times a month gets you to a weekly consistency. Essentially, you can keep increasing your send frequency as much as you want, but be conscious of your open and unsubscribe rates. When your engagement starts to decline, you know you’ve taken it too far.
Answer: The jury is not as undecided on this as they are on the best time and day to send emails. The optimal frequency to contact your customers is one to four times a month. This is the frequency we use for our customers, and our clients see great results with a twice-a-month schedule.
Answer: Early mornings and weekends … but also says those days/times are also the most likely to get you unsubscribes and bounces.
There are many right answers to this question. If you’re looking for a fairly safe bet, try Wednesday afternoons around 2 p.m. But every person, recipient and email list is different. Try different days and times and find what works best for your audience.
Answer: You have only 3-4 seconds before someone decides whether or not they are going to open your email, so it’s important to make an impact.. Best practices for subject lines are debatable, especially when trying to compare different industries and topics. However, there are some ballpark best practices for subject lines that you can feel confident about following.
Fifty characters is generally a good, safe rule of thumb to follow. However, people have seen great success with subject lines over 70 characters and less than 49, so feel free to experiment. Other tactics that work well in subject lines include asking questions, numbered lists and personalization.
The best email subject lines tend to be specific, short and compelling. Set expectations up front and let the email content do the rest.
Answer: As I mentioned above, it’s good to email people you personally know. However, some email lists might include people from bought lists or lead gen services (which you should generally avoid). We don’t recommend buying lists because there are laws in place to protect people from receiving certain types of unsolicited communications.
Answer: If you’re not writing something that your audience cares about, you won’t get their attention, even if you do land the email in their inbox. The emails should be directly tied to the subject line and written in a short, consistent way that makes it quickly readable and easily digested.
