In the fast-paced world of corporate communication, effective social media advertising is no longer an option but a necessity.  As per Statista, the graph below provides insights on the forecasted social media advertising spending worldwide from 2021 to 2028.

These statistics signify the efforts that are required in the present in utilizing the most effective social media advertising techniques. In this blog post, we will explore key social media advertising techniques for 2024, enhancing corporate visibility and driving website traction through strategic SEO (Search Engine Optimization) implementation.

Personalized content:

As of January 2023, Facebook was the most common social media platform among marketers worldwide. According to a global survey, 89% of responding social media marketers used the network to promote their business, while another 80% did so via Instagram. In the light of this increasing trend, it can be predicted that in 2024, personalization is the essence of successful social media advertising. Craft tailored content that resonates with your audience, leveraging data analytics to understand preferences and behaviors. Personalized ads lead to higher engagement rates, fostering a connection between your brand and potential clients.

The power of short form videos:

Video content continues to dominate the social media landscape, with short-form videos taking center stage. Platforms like TikTok and Instagram Reels offer a unique opportunity to convey your message briefly yet clearly and creatively. Engage your audience with visually appealing, bite-sized content that communicates your brand message effectively.

Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) integration:

The evolution of social media advertising hinges on immersive experiences. Embrace the cutting-edge realms of Augmented Reality (AR), which overlays digital elements onto the real world, and Virtual Reality (VR), which transports users to entirely virtual environments, to craft interactive content that not only engages but thoroughly captivates your audience.

Influencer collaboration strategies:

Influencer marketing remains a powerful tool for authentic audience engagement. Identify influencers whose values align with your brand and learn to negotiate partnerships effectively. 

In the meantime, one of the best ways to engage your audience is by providing them with a compelling reason to share your message with their networks. Around 90% of people believe what their peers have to say about a brand. According to the annually updated Edelman Trust Barometer consumer trust evaluation with brands, only 48% of the respondents said they trust businesses. Consumers value word of mouth recommendations from friends and family 41% more than social media recommendations.

Cross-platform advertising strategies:

Market leader Facebook was the first social network to surpass one billion registered accounts and currently sits at more than three billion monthly active users. Meta Platforms owns four of the biggest social media platforms, all with over one billion monthly active users each: Facebook, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Instagram. In the second quarter of 2023, Facebook reported over 3.8 billion monthly core Family product users.

Accordingly, diversification is key when it comes to social media advertising. Tailor your strategies to suit the unique demographics and behaviors of different platforms.

SEO integration for website traffic:

As per the research conducted by Marketo, many marketers use their website as the ‘home base’ for their marketing activities, driving visitors to their site to engage and eventually convert them. An important part of getting people to your website is your ranking in organic search results, which is where search engine optimization (SEO) comes into play. SEO is a strategic activity that can help marketers bolster their organic search rankings on search engines like Google. While social media and SEO may not directly work together to build your website’s page ranking, social media is one of the easiest and most effective ways to push out your content. The incoming links from your social media shares can impact your bounce rate and time-on-site engagement. Also, if your content is good and people stick around to read it, those engagement metrics communicate value to search engines.
