What is Social Media Optimization
Social Media Optimization is a service that using social media as a catalyst to grow your company’s online presence with multiple techniques. Where some companies tend to just set up a profile on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram, in order to be where their customers are, SMO is about strategically creating, building and maximizing your social media plan and targets to connect with your real audience. SMO allows you to:
- Generate leads from different channels
- Strengthen your brand awareness
- Get more traffic to your website or app
- Connect directly with your audience
Why SMO Is Important
Social media marketing and search engine marketing are becoming increasingly blurred and most of the times confusing. Until few years ago these two were looked at as separate and distinct aspects of marketing. But the reality is that they’re more intertwined today than you might think. A nice example is a post on Instagram or twitter. You may get 1,000 retweets or 1,000 likes but this won't increase your actual business website performance if it's not correctly coordinated with the SEO. A recent article from SearchEngineLand.com verifies that more than 50% of the companies that are having issues with SEO don't integrate the correct social media strategy.

If you ask any of our clients how they felt when we changed their social media profile, you'll understand exactly what we mean. While it seems very easy for someone to have the right profile on any social media account, more than 98% of the businesses have faulty profiles and information, giving a really bad impression for the business overall.

Last but not least is the content that you post to your social media accounts. The world's most legendary marketers swear as to how important the content itself is. If you don't know how to write, then just hire someone to do it for you! There are so many brands that have been completely destroyed from a single wrong tweet or Facebook post. People are reading out there, be aware! Content optimization requires 2 type of content, original and curated.
Original content is content that’s specifically created, written or made for social media and is usually part of one or more campaigns. For instance, when Netflix launched its #NetflixCheating campaign, they created original graphics to share on Twitter.
Curated content is content that’s shared from 3rd party sources around the web and is way more than just tweeting out links. In order to optimize it for the best results, you should only share content that’s valuable and relevant to your audience based on the initial strategy. Quality always beats out quantity. We are always able to determine what content your audience finds the most relevant by measuring the engagement for each post, experiment and make each post better than the one before.
