Outstanding analyzes on all major German cities can be found here in our Social Media Marketing Report.
Abbreviation for fast use in professional and everyday life
Abbreviation can be the word quite simply as SMM. This abbreviation use many, even in the literature.
Automation / Software / Tools / Development
Does SMM work automatically? Yes and no. With expert help, you will be able to access different networks without having to spend a lot of time and effort every day. In some cases, however, there are boundaries or grauzons. Even though networks offer development interfaces (APIs), everything that is possible can not be done. However, you can also profit from automatisms up to this graze. There are software solutions that facilitate management, as well as communication with fans and customers, as well as the amount of postings and the interaction in the networks.
Importance of marketing measures in social networks
From a philosophical point of view, SMM is a tool that brings enterprise reach. It can also have negative influences on society, as we see on the latest news about “Fake News”. Through the paid, targeted diversification of information, within a medium which I trust in which I meet friends, opinion can greatly influence. This is why social media managers should stick to a code. You should not use your talent to send incorrect information.
Occupation of the social media manager in companies
I can promise one thing for newcomers: the profession is incredibly creative and very strategic. Good, interesting content is just as much a part of success as skillful and accurate planning of methods and resources.
Advice and specific recommendations from the expert
Business consulting is a new, individual challenge for all project managers for each individual project. Not only is the different parameters and target groups of each advertising campaign different, the budgets and regional preferences are always different. While in traditional marketing the most common form of the campaign has been realized within a city, digital campaigns are rapidly transnational. Anyone who wants to take advantage of the consulting services of an agency should therefore go with enough budget into the conversation. It is also important for agencies to have an overview before giving concrete recommendations for action for companies.
Application in a social media agency
A tip: In your applications, it should always be clear that you are yourself active and know the networks. Especially older participants in the market have an extreme knowledge of the business in classic markets, but they can not connect themselves to young networks, simply because they themselves are not on Snapchat, Instagram, etc. A high affinity therefore helps with the applications for jobs in SMM.
Opportunities and risks in concepts and strategies
The balancing is simple: chances! They increase communication with customers, are more present in everyday media and pay little money. If you create clever content (photos, vides, etc.), you can build up real-world scope. Risks are solely negative comments and evaluations by, for example, competitors or persons who do not like their own company for subjective reasons. This is a difficult business. My recommendation: Most frequent contact attempts. If you do not have direct relationships, it will be very time-consuming to find a contact person. You must not give up, is important, often ask. So long until someone feels responsible. Constructive feedback from customers always helps with the improvement of products and services.

Concept / Instruments / Ideas / Channels / Mix
It is worth in the concept always several channels to use. Different users are registered in the various networks. While Snapchat has a super young target group, one finds on Facebook older persons. Youtube use all, while Instagram is very trendy. The decision is, therefore, also falling with the concept around the channels.
Customer loyalty in social networks through permanent ads
Social media management is particularly suited to customer loyalty. Through the permanent and target audience accurate placement of advertising, you can remind people on Facebook, Instagram, Youtube & Co. daily of your brand. The same effect arises in classic marketing in inner cities. If we see a promotional poster for a long time, we’ll take note of it. If it does not change immediately after a few days, the brand remains in our memory. The same concept can, of course, also be used to coin corporate services or to offer offers for existing customers.
The communication policy is always based on the classic transceiver model. In other words, who is talking to whom? Depending on which, which group communicates with which and which contents are exchanged here, the communication policy changes. Even situations change the policy of language and content to the outside. It is important for brands and companies to have their own statements always at a glance. The more employees and people involved in projects, the more essential a well-defined and well-known definition of the statements becomes. Communication policy is part of the classic marketing mix and, of course, is also used in the social media.
KPI / KPI / Success Factors / Monitoring
Through the different analysis possibilities within the social networks and their special advertising areas, campaigns can be very precisely evaluated. While success factors in the form of KPIs (key performance indicators) are difficult to comprehend in many classic measures (such as posters). A lot of successes, especially on these key figures: Clicks (forwarding to the desired content), leads (predefined deals), shares (shared content), Likes (Likes).
Exclusive watches, expensive hotels or chic sports cars. As an agency, we are already dealing with the first days with high-quality brands. Especially in the field of fashion, we have developed competences that we actively bring into the market every day. For luxury brands there are special bids, on the one hand is “less more” and on the other hand is “more, more”. Few content, exclusive and with credo “wow, I want that too!” Or “so I will live also!”
Or Social Media Marketing Modebranche – As already said with the luxury brands, we have special expertise here. Fashion itself is something extraordinary, trends are constantly being reinvented.

Anyone who wants to show up with his company in social networks, of course, is always in the spotlight. That is, people take you more true than before. Social networks, through their relative anonymity, always provide a platform for negative utterance. What is an advantage can thus also be a negative example. However, one should always take advantage of the possible dangers and you will see that the advantages of communication in social networks always prevails. In addition, you have the opportunity to learn from constructive criticism of your fans and users. The findings of individual persons often help to solve problems of larger groups. So criticism also ensures growing success – if you are open to it.
The measures are very suitable for new customer acquisition! There are different possibilities. On the one hand postings spread through divided contents or also Likes. Here, the person’s joy will see your content and become fans. If you invest additionally in ads, you can win new people for you by means of strategies like the Look-Alike Audience.
Newsletter are out! Because of … newsletters are still one of the most popular communication media of marketers. The opening rates of newsletters are still very high and are only topped by a few systems such as SMS marketing or Whatsapp marketing. Even young online marketers, who founded their busniess on affiliate marketing, set up a newsletter to build their funnels. Conversion options and the perfect description of headlines enable the success of the newsletters to rise quickly. Through A / B testing and other methods such as the setting of pixels, newsletters are also becoming an absolutely effective tool in the sales process in social media marketing.
The prices differ extremely depending on the conditions. It depends on whether you want to advertise regionally, nationally or internationally. Also, you have to pay attention to how many variations there are. This means: Are several products advertised? Are A / B tests running? Etc.
Platforms / Facebook / Instagram / Twitter / Pinterest / Youtube / …
There are many different platforms where social media managers are on the road for companies and businesses. The first networks (myspace, etc.) knows no one today. Platzhirsch has been for years Facebook. Also through acquisitions like Instagram. In addition, Google plays a major role, less by Google Plus, Youtube is here market-shattering for videos.
Have you ever heard of “Fake News”? Social media marketing can be used postitively but also negatively. Online marketing for politics therefore always has a special “taste”. In principle, however, the same opportunities exist for the poetics as they are for fire.

Vs Traditional Marketing
Traditional marketing does not exclude modern online marketing. Both areas complement each other and can quickly benefit from each other thanks to their synergies. The larger a company is, the higher the advertising spend. If you only advertise at the POS (point of sale) or as a brand with stores only on digital advertising crashes, will never reach all customers. From certain ranges spreading advertising is important – while many young companies try to avoid spreading losses. Many areas cover each other, and actions can be combined. An example would be ‘Midnight Shopping’: A special and unique sales campaign is advertised via social networks. Users are made aware of this and they make their way directly to Facebook via Facebook, Whatsapp and other social networks. So you simply move your online users to the shop in the shopping mall.
