Choosing The Right Social Media Platform For Your Business

Social media is a great digital marketing tool for businesses. It’s free to use and can let you connect directly with current and future customers. The latest data shows that over 77% of UK population uses at least one social media platform. 

The real question for businesses is not “should we use social media” but instead “which social media should we use”. With several major social platforms, it would take a huge amount of time and effort to create content for each of them. Only the largest companies like Coca Cola can have a presence on every platform. For a small to medium sized business, it’s ideal to focus on one or two platforms which suit your brand’s message.

The Importance Of Conversion Rate Optimisation 

In digital marketing, the conversion rate is the rate at which visitors to your site ‘convert’ into either paying customers or qualified leads. So, if your site had one hundred visitors, and six of them filled out the contact form requesting a call back, your site would have a conversion rate of 6%. 

Conversion rate optimisation refers to all the design changes you would make to your website to increase your conversion rate. Page headings, images and call to action buttons are all examples of things you might adjust to see the effect on your conversion rate.
