Yet managing a social media outlet like Instagram may be beyond your current skills. Have you seen your MSP business going in circles or bogging down entirely when it comes to launching and maintaining a successful social media campaign? Your company’s not alone. Many MSPs end up crashing and burning when it comes to social media marketing.
A lack of planning plays a big part in the struggles many MSPs face when it comes to social media. The following reasons also play a significant role in why many MSP keeps running into a brick wall when it comes to their social media efforts.
1. Failing to Understand Its Power
Many MSPs don’t understand how to use the reach of social media in promoting their company and the services they offer. It’s an opportunity to connect to customers and make your brand distinct in a sea of competitors. You can use to help build a qualified sales list for your company. MSPs who continue ignoring social media’s potential end up missing a chance to showcase the strengths of their company to a wide audience full of potential clients.
2. Not Incorporating Different Platforms
Social media offers a variety of different platforms that MSPs can use in social media campaigns. Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitch…the list goes on. Many MSPs fail in seeing the big picture in how these seemingly fluffy outlets could boost to their ongoing marketing efforts. Social media for an MSP can’t just start and end with building a static Facebook page.
3. Giving Up Too Quickly
MSPs who attempt to work with platforms like Twitter may grow frustrated when they don’t find immediate success by amassing 100,000 followers right from the start. They end up neglecting or entirely abandoning their efforts when expectations for ROI don’t pan out within the first few months.
That lack of patience can end up costing your company long-term. Not having an active makes it harder for potential clients get a real sense of your company culture when they’re in the market for an MSP and doing online research.
Here are three ways MSPs can break the stagnant path they’re on and start revamping their social media marketing efforts.
