When choosing a company, ensure training is part of your services. This is especially important if you barely know what Hashtag means. Next find out if you will have a dedicated account representative. The personal touch is valuable. Someone should know you, your product, and your marketing objectives. You need much more than access to a website with statistics.

  • Comprehensive social media marketing packages provide real-time access, and in-depth analysis to find out how far a post or tweet traveled from your site.
  • The software program can identify your fans, and determine if your fan base is growing.
  • It can even let you know the specific posts are they responding to, and thereby help you customize your approach.

When deciding which marketing firm to choose, especially when pricing and services seems similar, find out if it’s a branch of an established company or a newbie. Make phone calls to several companies and try to speak with a high level officer. This exercise will give you a feel for its customer service, and if you’d be a valued client or merely another sale.
