Social media marketing in Abu Dhabi is the strategic use of various social media sites and platforms to promote a business or service. Although the terms digital and e-commerce marketing is generally dominant in academic circles, social media marketing has become more popular among researchers and practitioners for several reasons.
- Firstly, it provides a relatively low-cost platform to advertise businesses and services to a much broader audience. This type of marketing also offers a higher return on investment (ROI), since the reach of users and their interactions can be much wider than traditional advertising venues such as newspapers, magazines, etc.
- Moreover, social-media marketing campaigns that are conducted by an SEO agency in Abu Dhabi are easier to track and measure. Since audiences are typically grouped into groups based on their interests, demographics, and social activities, advertisers can tailor their offerings and reach their target audience more efficiently by identifying where they will be most likely to respond.
- An advertiser might find that young women are more likely to respond to a commercial while men are more likely to respond to articles or videos about their favorite sports team. By understanding the interests of their target audience and analyzing their response rate, advertisers can fine tune their campaigns based on their understanding of their audience’s response to different types of media.
- As a result of its low cost and accessibility, social media marketing has been widely used by companies in different industries as a means of reaching out to target customers and maximizing return on investment (ROI).
- For marketers and advertising agencies, social media advertising is a relatively low-cost option when compared to other types of digital and/or e-commerce advertising. Advertisers only have to pay for the time slot a user spends on a site versus paying for media exposure over many days or weeks.
- Media exposure can take many forms, ranging from short video clips to lengthy articles. The advertiser only pays for the time the user spends viewing their advertisements and therefore does not incur any additional costs for media advertising when a user clicks an ad campaign.
- However, social media marketing should not be considered a silver bullet. Rather, it should be seen as a complementary marketing tool to other online marketing strategies.
- Using it alongside more traditional forms of advertising such as pay per click (PPC) and e-mail marketing can help to enhance the return on investments. Social media websites are generally easy to monitor and should be included as an active part of a business’s website monitoring and optimization strategy.
