Our Social Media Strategy

Theme Selection
We determine core social media themes based on your business goals and objectives. These themes provide clarity for what type of content we’ll post for your brand and improves consistency amongst your social posts. It also gives a clear direction amongst the Agency and Client for the type of content that’s needed to garner strong engagement. Each brand is different so we develop core social media themes for each client at the very beginning of the campaign. Examples of themes would be employee showcase, sharing product or service expertise and client success stories (to name a few).
70-20-10 Rule
70% of the content we create for our Clients will build your brand. 20% of posts are content from other sources that we’ll share. The final 10% is self promotional content. Most prospects do not want to be sold via social media through organic posts. The 70-20-10 rule helps us create engaging content that’s informative and entertaining while keeping your brand top of mind.
Content Audit
We conduct an audit into the photos and videos you currently have. If you’re light on assets, don’t worry, our design and creative team is here to help. Heading into a campaign, it’s important that we understand what we have to work with from your team before providing recommendations.
Social Posting
We create a set number of social media posts for your business across the most important channels that will resonate with your target audience. Social posting includes the copywriting, graphics, scheduling of posts and boosting the posts for optimal exposure.

FAQ’s

Why is social media important?
Social media helps you connect with current and prospective customers. It gives your brand a personality and identity. It can help drive sales for your business while also providing robust customer service support. Parents, grandparents and CEO’s are all on social media. It’s no longer just fun and games. Social media is a serious revenue generator for all business types. There is no better way to get your message to the masses than social media.
Why use an agency for social media?
We hear from a lot of businesses that struggle to do social media marketing in-house. They either don’t have the time to implement the day-to-day. They could lack resources, like having someone proficient in Facebook Business Manager to serve ads and track properly via pixels or have a graphic designer to leverage for professional graphics. Having an outside perspective and a fresh set of eyes also helps. If you’re not driving new business or enough new business, an Agency like The Media Captain is what can help you take your social media to new heights.
How many post per month?
We average 25-30 social media posts per month for our clients. This varies based on the size of your company and your type of business. During the discovery process after you first contact our agency, we create a custom plan to solidify the amount of posts.
What Channels do you post on?
This depends on what type of business you have. For B2B businesses, we’ll be more aggressive on LinkedIn. For a restaurant, we’ll focus more on Facebook and Instagram. When we create our strategy, we solidify the best social media channels for your business. The most popular social media channels are Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Google My Business for our clients.

What defines success?
This depends. For an eCommerce business, it’s typically a strong return on investment where online revenue outweighs ad spend.

How do you go about getting content?

Do you have PR services to accompany social media marketing?
Yes, we offer public relation services. When you have a good story to tell, it’s important to get the word out via social media. Another avenue to take is to get media publications to talk about your story. We can help in this area with our PR services.
