Social media management is the management of your social media profiles with the aim to create and maintain your brand presence on social media channels by distributing high quality, relevant content, growing followers and engaging with them.
Why is social media important in the travel industry?
Social media is one of the most successful ways to market travel services, with more than 50% of direct bookings coming from social media accounts. In addition, 52% of travellers are so influenced by social media that they change their original travel plans!
Facebook is shown to be one of the most successful social platforms with 71% of travel brands on Facebook finding that they have better engagement and conversation with their customers.
Why should you outsource your social media management?
Managing social media profiles is very time consuming and expensive for you to do yourself. It can also easily distract you away from other important business activities. In addition there are so many different social media platforms that it is a challenge for most businesses to keep on top of managing them and maintain up-to-date knowledge and expertise in these social networks.
Outsourcing your social media provides a cost effective, high quality solution to managing your social media presence and ensures that your activity is always in line with the best growth, engagement, lead generation and traffic strategies for each social platform.
