Orlando Social Media Marketing Tips

social media management in orlando florida 32803

Social Media Marketing is a key part of marketing. Most people are connected via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Having a Social Media presence creates brand trust for your business by allowing the community or consumers to connect personally with your business, values, products, and goals.

If you own a business in Orlando Florida, you have an advantage when it comes to Social Media Marketing. Why? Because Orlando is a popular city due to the high population, defined business district, and appealing tourist destinations. How does this benefit your business when marketing on social media?

  1. High population: Orlando has approximately 2.52 million people living within it. If you are a local business, that is a huge consumer pool to narrow down to a healthy sized target audience. A target market is important for social media marketing. Without an affective one, you can waste your marketing budget completely. Another consideration is the diversity of the Orlando population. Orlando has a spanning variety of social media users with many variations of targetable demographics and interests. This is a big deal when you consider that for smaller cities, narrowing down an audience may mean you end up with only 100’s of people seeing your ad instead of 100,000.
  2. Hashtag Usage: Hashtags are an added bonus for those marketing in Orlando on social media. #Orlando, #OrlandoBusiness, and more locally used hashtags has a prominent following on social media. Hashtags can be used as a form of “free” marketing when included in a post made on any social media platform, but they are most poplar on Instagram. Users who search or follow a specific hashtag may see your post if the text includes the hashtag. Hashtags are not suggested as a “stand-alone” marketing method, but they can be beneficial, and don’t dip into your marketing budget.
  3. The “Districts”: Orlando has an established downtown business district, as well as an industrial district, and several defined tourist areas. This is a huge benefit when considered within your social media marketing strategy. Each of these areas can be specifically targeted. On Facebook for instance, if you sell business insurance, you could specifically target social media users who are located in the business district. If you sell vacation properties, you can target people who are visiting the tourist areas and are at least 100 miles from their home. Being able to target in this way highly increases your ad engagement and effectiveness.
  4. Tourism: If you have a business that provides products or services worldwide, then Orlando is a great spot to have your home location. Orlando is built for tourism. Florida had 95.8 million visitors from January through September in 2018. This tourism gives your business the opportunity to connect to worldwide consumers personally. Because you can specifically market to people visiting the Orlando area, you have an advantage over the competition who are not located in highly traveled destinations. This is especially true for businesses that sell products locally and online. People are more likely to buy from a business they have had personal experience with than a random online business.

The other part of social media marketing is the marketing itself. Having all these benefits don’t help if they are used in inadequate marketing. Social media marketing is far more than posts to Facebook or a well organized Instagram feed. Most people think that it is as simple as setting up a page and the followers and likes roll in. This is completely unrealistic. You do not go from 100 to 100k followers in a week. The average business account gets 5 to 10 new likes/followers per week, when they post the correct content. Followers and likes are great because they give you a “free” audience to market to, but in social media marketing, this is not where most sales come from.

Most conversions come from paid ads on social media, and any marketing plan should include the implementation of paid ads.

Paid ads come with multiple objectives, based on which social media platform you are using. There are a few things you should understand before trying to do your own social media marketing, or meeting with an Orlando social media marketing agency.

  1. Facebook Boosting is not the same as an ad: When you make a post, Facebook often sends you a notification that you can boost your post to reach more people. Boosting a post means that Facebook will show the post to people who are outside of your group of followers on your page. This sounds good, but it is relatively pointless if you use the automatic recommendations. In most cases it is much less effective to boost a post than to run an ad. They are two completely different things. Ads allow you more options to target, pick your objective, and modify placements (where your ad will be shown). A good marketer will rarely use post boosting in most cases.
  2. Instagram Promotions: Instagram promotions are the same as boosting a Facebook post, technically. The difference is that Instagram is more of a visual venue. Promoting a post on Instagram can be beneficial if you are looking for new followers or likes on a particular post, but you cannot promote posts that have products tagged. This means that to buy your product, the user would have to see your post, click to see your profile, then find your link in your bio to visit your site and search for the product. Most marketing companies use Instagram promotions strictly for brand awareness, unless you offer a service or one product.
  3. Paid Marketing: Paid ads are those you see on your social media feeds that say “sponsored”. Facebook offers many options for ad creation, including “automatic” tools, such as placements and quick ad creation. These are usually a waste of time and budget. Many people try to do their own social media marketing using the automatic tools and recommendations and horribly fail. This leaves them with a bad impression of social media marketing all together. If you are going to try to market on your own, avoid the automatic tools. If you decide to hire a professional, they will likely construct goal specific ads that are targeted to reach a broad audience. They use the first data collected to build a more specific audience which increases the effectiveness of the ad to reach your selected goal. Social media marketing involves constant monitoring and adjustments.

Thank you for improving our SEO. You were upfront (which is more than i can say from our last agency) and honest. Thank you for pointing out the mistakes our last agency made using tactics frowned upon by Google and getting us back on the right track. 7 months with you guys has been better than the last year and a half with 2 other agencies.

I am glad i found you sooner rather than later our PPC spend was out of control and yall helped me increase sales while decreasing spend. I knew something wasn't right and yall quickly turned it around. I'm not going to try and do the "marketing" stuff on my own anymore.

Thank you to Kyle and his team for their hard work and dedication. Kyle literally spent the first 3 months being my main point of contact and he is the CEO! With a large budget like we spend its nice to know the owner of the company is available to take my calls and meet with me. He was in the office everyday we dropped in and our new account manager Ryan is just as good! The positive ROI has been amazing and i can't wait to bring my new start up on board from the begining when it launches in December of 2018.

Top notch customer service and very knowledgeable when it comes to PPC marketing. Austin is our PPC account manager and he is always available to take my call. Our business has tripled sales over the last 5 months. I highley reccomend you contact them the consultation was free and they are very laid back and not some huge 500+ employee agency that never has time for you.

We went through 4 "marketing agencies" before we finally had results with Website Marketing Company. All agencies are not created equal and we learned you get what you pay for. Other agencies locked us into a contract and charged extra fees we were not aware of before signing up. All of that is a thing of the past now with y'all. You were upfront and honest, no extra fees, no contracts and i feel at home. Prompt replies to my emails and a detailed breakdown in easy to understand language.

Our business has significantly improved due to the marketing strategy that you implemented. We even had a last minute change that needed to be made and we were able to call our account manager Austin on Christmas and he had the changes implemented the same same day! Thats customer service and can't wait wait for 2019.

This company was originally helping us with our SEO and website improvements, but they have now progressed into assisting us with our social media presence. I was completely oblivious to how effective social media can be for leveraging new customers. Over the past few months, they have been very successful in attracting and influencing new customers and building our organic presence. I’ve learned a lot about the right and wrong ways to improve our business thanks to Mike and the marketing team. Thank you for your honesty, transparency, and guidance! I look forward to a continued and prosperous partnership between the both of us. Best Regards,Angel

I have a very busy schedule. Therefore, I do not like to spend my free time hassling my marketing company for updates regarding work I’m paying for. I had that issue with a few other marketing companies before finally migrating over to this company. They are organized and it shows because my status report at the end of the month is always detailed and pinpoints exactly what kind of results were achieved during that specific month. So far, they haven’t missed a month. My SEO has drastically improved and I’m looking forward to running more campaigns as they continue to prove they are capable. Special thanks to Austin and Peter for being consistent and personable to do business with.

If you’re looking to explode your rankings, this is the right company for the job. I own a dog sitting business and I’m partnered with corporate partners like Rover, but despite that, I knew my business could be improved even more. I handle my own social media marketing, so I really only needed this company for Google ranking purposes. They skyrocketed me to the number 5 position in my niche and city in just 2 weeks. I was probably on the 3rd or 4th page before that, so they really worked their magic. What’s crazy to me is, this is JUST the beginning of what my business’s rankings are capable of!

Highly recommended!! Jess and Austin are amazing account managers and have been working with our company for over 3 years. They must not have a high employee turn over rate because we have been able to talk to them for the past 3 years and that speaks volumes to their knowledge of not only our business but the marketing agency as well. I am looking forward to continued success and sorry it took us 3 years to get to writing this review.
