Vishal Dutta discusses some of the key social media management challenges faced by businesses today, and how his venture DrumUp can help tackle them.
Hundreds of millions of professionals and businesses worldwide lose precious man-hours each day searching for relevant content. Whether the search for content is to stay updated with the latest trends and news, or to curate content for social media and online presence, the problem is a difficult one to solve. Searching on the web, browsing through select publications and discovering content on social media is both effort intensive and time-consuming – basically inefficient!
DrumUp attempts to solve this problem through an intelligent content discovery engine that employs advanced machine learning, data mining and natural language processing algorithms to build personalized content streams of high relevance for the users. The content discovery engine is supported by a social media management and publishing platform, which connects to major social media channels to help businesses boost their social media presence effectively.
Key social media management challenges faced by businesses and professionals:
With billions of users on social media platforms and millions of businesses trying to engage them on these platforms, maintaining a strong presence on key social media platforms is a no brainer for businesses. Social media is undoubtedly the quickest and most efficient way of reaching out to your target audience at scale. Yet most small businesses find it difficult to optimize their social media presence. Here are a few common challenges that they face:
Finding relevant content
So, you’ve set up a Facebook page and a Twitter handle. But what next? Businesses often feel stumped when it comes to generating share-worthy content. In the context of social media marketing, and content marketing at large, relevance is key. But sifting through the multiverse of information on the Internet is no mean task. If you want your social media marketing efforts to have a positive impact you’ll need engaging and relevant content.
Managing multiple channels
Building a presence on multiple channels means sharing more and more content. It also means logging in to multiple accounts individually, posting content manually and tracking engagement individually. Clearly, doing these tasks manually eats into the precious time and manpower of your business. In worse cases, it could even dilute the focus on core business activities.
Social media management can be a big time and resource drain, which is often the biggest pain point for businesses when it comes to building and managing a social presence. Small businesses and professionals don’t even have the kind of resources available at their disposal. The result is often neglected social media accounts and pages.
Consistent activity is key when it comes to social media presence. To see a stable growth in followers, and in turn, conversions, businesses must continue to stay active on social media. Publishing and monitoring social accounts daily requires a lot of attention and discipline. But the good news is that social media marketing automation can help.
