There's no doubt that great content is a key factor for brands to stand out in social media, but even if you have it, your social channels won't reach full engagement with your audience unless it is paired with a great and consistent administration. That's why today we are going to introduce you to community management.
Something all brands should aim to acquire in the online world is an engaged community. Online communities consist of a group of people from your internal audience (employees, partners, and team members) and your external audience (fans, consumers and followers) that feel a connection with your brand, based on their shared interests and characteristics. Your community’s sense of belonging is what will generate steady and authentic interactions with your brand, both online, and in person.
Nonetheless, a committed community doesn't grow overnight. It needs support and ”maintenance”. These tasks require mindfulness to follow a strategy, that's why there are community managers. A community manager is an expert on social networks and the person in charge of digital strategies and arrangements. These professionals help to develop and nurture your brand’s online community.
Community management allows your business to explore different opportunities, here are a few that you might find useful:
Obtain feedback and gather information from your community members through genuine conversations.
Learn about your audience's expectations and needs in terms of content, service, and products.
Boost customer interactions, conversions, and sales.
Provide value to your customers beyond a product or service.
Increase brand and product awareness among your target audience.
“Brands need to hire community managers because they’re the tone, voice, and human element behind your brand.” -Krystal Wu, Social Media Community Manager, HubSpot
Sounds great, right? The best part is that community management is a broad term, meaning that there are different types that could help your business, using a personalized and integral methodology that adapts to your goals and needs.
