Have you heard this before?
“I want to explain my brand through this one fancy creative.”
“Do one infomercial post about the brand so people know who we are.”
“We are introducing a new product and we have to make one video about it.”
And more such examples.
But the bottom line is, the game of social media doesn’t work that way.
Keeping the algorithms of these various platforms in mind, and not to forget the attention span of the audience – considering the various amount of content they consume in one go…
It’s extremely difficult to focus on just one campaign, or one creative, or one video in particular that could make your case.
To be fair, there are a few that hit the mark but that’s because the brand is already built and people know it.
For everyone else, that one creative, even if it is a successful one, in terms of numbers, one cannot rely solely on it to get the true results.
True results is mainly getting the brand name out there, selling a product or a service, converting the audience basically.
Back to the topic of one creative, that’s not how one should approach it in the first place.
You have to think of it in macro terms. You have to think of the brand first, think of how the audience will perceive it and then plan accordingly.
Think if you’d be the consumer, and how you’d like to be told about this certain information. Are you focusing on this one-off thing or do you want to make it a long-term connection?
In terms of the latter, you have to know your target audience, know your product, provide value to them in terms of that, slowly and steadily, build your brand whilst the consumer themselves want to follow your content or buy your product or service in their own time.
Thinking of the macro, you have built your brand, built a community and also, sold your product or service.
The bottom line being, you cannot approach this entire process with one creative or one campaign being the only thing that would work for the brand.
