Like many business owners, you’ve probably spent a lot of time creating your social media marketing strategy, then spent just as much time implementing it.


If you have the resources, you may have even hired a social media specialist to run your various profiles.  But is your strategy really working?

5 Common Misconceptions of Social Media

Many businesses may be a bit skeptical about social media. A lot of questions may run through your mind when wondering which social media is the best for you company.

Does it cost? How many posts a day? Some may even think they don’t have time for using social media.

Here are 5 common misconceptions of social media.

1. It’s free.

Social platforms are definitely free but if you want to be successful on social media you have to want to invest money on it. If you want to use organic reach just know that it’s extremely limited if you want to get noticed. Imagine you are at a concert, the people who are all the way in the front paid a lot of money to be there, then there’s the middle part of the concert venue where it wasn't as expensive but it’s neither free and you can still see perfectly. Then there’s the free ticket that doesn’t exist unless you win it but that winning ticket is one out of who knows how many others. In the end it’s better to invest in order to be seen on social media platforms. The days of free-and-easy organic social media exposure is long gone!

Are You Measuring Your Social Media ROI?

Do you know if the time and money you’re investing into social media strategy and management is paying off?

Here are three ways for you to measure your social media ROI in Google Analytics.

Hashtags, are defined as a # sign followed by a word or phrase; when the two are combined, it becomes a link you can click on to see other posts that include the same hashtag.

Want to see public posts for a hashtag? Copy and paste these links into your browser and replace “Bloominari” with the hashtag of your choice:

Why Should You Use Hashtags?

  1. Your readers understand what your post is about. For example, “We’re excited to bring #DeepDishPizza to our #LaJolla location!” makes it clear that you’re talking about a specific product and a specific location.
  2. You improve the chances that people outside of your immediate network (i.e., people who are not yet following your social media account) will find your post. Your post will appear with all the other posts that include that hashtag.

Use hashtags sparingly and only for the key topics or phrases — especially on Twitter! (Remember, those # signs still count as characters.) Instagram has a limit of 30 hashtags in a comment.

What Hashtags Should You Use?

When posting, think about including hashtags for:

  • your brand (e.g., #bloominari)
  • important services (e.g., #socialmediamarketing)
  • relevant events or holidays (e.g., #thanksgiving or #SDCC)

Depending on your industry, there may be specific hashtags that you may want to include that are unique to that community.
