Social Media Optimization

Social Media Optimization (SMO) is the use of social media to optimize awareness, visibility and engagement of an event, brand, product or other item.

In its most effective form, social media optimization is perpetual; it’s not something ever fully achieved.

People change, trends evolve and news happens. For this reason, if you are using SMO to accelerate your business, you should never be headed for a stopping point. Similarly, you should never assume that your social media campaign won’t ever need a tweak for full effect.

You should always be testing the waters around you, researching what your followers are talking about, and looking for what interests them. Is there industry news that might impact your followers? Let them know. Is there a challenge to which your brand/product can provide a solution? Fill them in. While your posts should in some way tie-in to your expertise, they don’t always need to be directly about your brand. Solve problems, entertain, and provoke thought, interaction and dialogue.

With social media, you are vying for a coveted spot in the personal life of your chosen audience. When you campaign for a “like,” “follow,” or other social media action, you are asking to be let into a person’s digital community. While it’s a common request, for many people it is a significant request. In the same mindset you have in putting your shareholders, customers, etc. first, you should also value your social media followers. This is the root of SMO.

You’re already more familiar with brand awareness than you might think. What’s your favorite brand of soft drink, athletic shoe, car, shampoo, streaming content provider? Chances are, you first tried those brands because of their awareness strategies. Whether it was word of mouth or a TV commercial, Facebook post, billboard or coupon, that awareness peaked interest, triggered a purchase reaction, and ideally built customer loyalty.
