How can social media benefit my business?


Social media platforms are household names – and they provide great opportunities for businesses to create brand awareness, reach new audiences and drive sales.

Around two thirds of the UK’s population are social media users – so whoever your target audience are, social media provides a golden opportunity to reach new people, engage your audience and eventually convert leads into new customers.

There are dozens of social media platforms out there, ranging from household names such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, through to more specialised sites like DeviantArt, SoundCloud and Flickr. Whatever your business niche and whoever your target audience is, at HeyYou! Digital we can help you to find the right platforms, create effective campaigns and get great results for your business.

How can social media benefit my business?

Social media is a fantastic way to develop awareness of your brand, build your audience and share your content more widely. It can be used in different ways depending on what your business goals are. Some organisations use social media predominantly to launch products and drive sales, whilst others are using their channels as extensions of their customer service offering.


Some of the benefits of using social media for your business are:

  • generating leads and sales
  • increasing the awareness of your brand
  • gaining more traffic to your website
  • creating better relationships with your customers, leads and audience
  • humanising your brand
  • offering increased customer support
  • reputation and crisis management
  • promoting your content

How can a social media marketing agency help?

To really succeed and develop a strong and effective social media presence requires a great deal of consistency and planning, which takes time. Outsourcing your social media management to a digital marketing agency like HeyYou! is like gaining an additional member of your team – without the usual price tag of adding an additional employee. It gives you the time back to concentrate on running your business, whilst knowing that your social media reputation is in great hands.
