Social media has become an indispensable tool for marketing businesses. It allows for connecting with target audiences, showcasing work, and building brand awareness. However, the psychology of social media goes beyond business promotions. It's about understanding human behavior and the need for a delicate balance between business-focused and personal content.
In this blog post, INGAGE’s marketing team will delve into the psychology behind social media and why every post shouldn't be solely business-oriented.
Understanding the Social Media Landscape
Before we explore the psychology behind social media content, let's take a quick look at the landscape of social media. Platforms like Facebook, Instagram, X (formerly Twitter), and LinkedIn have billions of active users. Each of these users engages with content on a daily basis, and their motivations for doing so are diverse. Some seek entertainment, others crave information, and many desire connection and...
Marketing In the AI Era: Why The Need For Human Creativity Will Always Prevail
In an era dominated by technological advancements, there is an increasing concern that artificial intelligence (AI) might eventually make us perceive human creativity as an “unnecessary skill.” In addition to this, some individuals already perceive creativity as inconsequential and irrelevant – especially in the scientific, legal, and financial fields. In marketing, this can be recognized in the way some marketing companies limit their strategies to a strictly analytical and conservative approach.
What people seem to forget is that a straightforward AI-generated pitch would never suffice to capture the attention and loyalty of consumers. In an era of constant digital noise, technological development, and ever-evolving consumer preferences, creativity has actually become more important than ever before since it plays a pivotal role in breaking through the clutter and establishing a...
In today's digital age, social media has become an indispensable tool for businesses to engage with customers, promote their products or services, and generate leads. However, finding the perfect balance in posting frequency is essential for maintaining a strong online presence without overwhelming your followers. It can be tempting to treat social media with a waterfall effect, posting in a stream of consciousness; however, posting too much can have a negative impact on your business.
Understanding Post Frequency
Post frequency refers to the number of times a business (you!) shares content on its social media channels within a given period, usually a day or a week. Depending on the platform, this includes posts with images, videos, links, or just text. The frequency of these posts plays a role in your marketing strategy, so it is key to find the sweet spot that garners the most engagement and potential...
I am Kyle Ean Haggerty, Director of Business Development with Ingage Digital Marketing and Public Relations, welcome to your MARKETING MOMENT.
Recently, I was in Orlando, Florida, teaching a workshop on Marketing and Public Relations and one of the business owners asked me a question that inspired me to make this video.
She stated and asked: "There are times when barely anyone visits my website, and then there are times when I have many visitors go to my website, but the potential clients are different from what I am looking for. Please tell me what to do.
Many business owners can relate to this, so I am giving you a quick checklist to consider when trying to raise the number of views on your website and attract more customers and the right clientele.
If the number of visitors to your website is low, add keywords that describe the nature of your business, products, and services. If you have already done that, then add words that are similar in...
