Social Media Management

Many small to medium sized businesses are incredibly active on social media. Their Facebook pages are actively posted on, they use Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, YouTube and other platforms regularly to inspire and educate their communities and customers.

But for many, it’s an activity that gets largely neglected.

Understandably, a lot of business are more focused on dealing with the day-to-day pressures they find themselves under, and haven’t the time to build their presence within social media. Others, of course, are not entirely convinced that social media is the right vehicle for them, and don’t view it as a worthwhile investment of their resources. However, social media is certainly a worthwhile investment for just about any type of business.

Social media can work hard for you by:

  • Increasing loyalty to your business
  • Building greater engagement with your audiences
  • Improving your search engine rankings
  • Increasing traffic to your website
  • Increasing sales

Don’t just take our word for it

More than 60% of the UK population regularly use social media, according to www.statista.com. That’s 40 million people. In some countries, the percentage is even higher (almost 75% in the USA, for example). Many of these users are young people, of course, but don’t be fooled into thinking they are all spotty teenagers, and irrelevant for your business. Facebook’s demographic spread alone indicates that almost 39 million of its UK users are aged 25 or over. They are very much the consumers of today. And, just as importantly, tomorrow.

The average user of social media logs in for nearly 1 hour and 40 minutes every day, or 12 hours a week, according to www.mediakix.com. Millennials (born between 1982 and 2004) watch more YouTube than TV, and Facebook’s 1.4 billion active users around the world spend an average of 20-plus minutes a day, every day, 365 days a year, on the network.

Just Us deploys as many channels of communication as are necessary to achieve the results wanted. But the simple fact is; traditional outbound marketing communications created by an organisation are not as effective as the word-of-mouth recommendations one receives from one’s peer group. Social media is capable of influencing people’s views more readily and more quickly than any number of adverts placed, and at a fraction of the cost.

It is little wonder that social media now drives more traffic to websites than search engines.
