Social Media ROI – How to Achieve: Reach

    By The Wishpond Blog | Small Business

    What is reach?

    Reach is the number of unique individuals who have seen content published by a brand on a social network. For example, if you post a status update on Facebook and 700 people saw this post, you have a reach of 700. This means that you were able to deliver the specific update to 700 potential customers.

    What is the benefit of reach?

    Increasing your reach on social networks is crucial in raising brand awareness and continuously fill the top of your sales funnel. Keep your audience interacting with your online presence by running contests on your social channels and grabbing user’s attention by sharing enjoyable and entertaining content that is tailored to their interests.

    Starbucks is a great example of a company that executes effective social media marketing strategies to build a strong online presence. More than half a million fans follow Starbucks on Facebook and the fan base grows daily thanks to its Facebook promotions that help increase traffic. Starbucks regularly runs photo and essay contests to entice its fans to get actively involved and share content. To enter its latest launched contest, Starbucks asked all Facebook fans to submit a new name for its Blond Roast in order to win a trip to meet for coffee anywhere in Canada. This is an efficacious way of generating audience participation as the fan engagement was overwhelming.

    User-generated contests are a great tool to raise brand awareness that will help reach new customers and lead to a meaningful number of sales. A contest should always influence positive vibes toward the promoted brand in order to convert fans into buyers
