Have you ever thought about the quality of the human connections you make via social media? It's easy to get lost in the numbers, or to get over focused on followers, likes, shares, views, listens - and the list goes on.
As marketing leaders, we need to remind ourselves that behind every click, share and subscribe is a person, a human being. It's the humans behind the clicks and actions you want to connect with. It's the humans taking the action that will make or break your business.
People buy from people. People invest in relationships with people. It's not a robot that's handing you a credit card, signing a purchase order or mailing you a check, it's a human that makes the decision to invest in you and your business.
Marketers need to use data and social media insights to connect in a more human way. We should use data to build more quality relationships and emotionally connect with the people we want to do business with. Data can help us deep dive into factors that enable higher quality of everything including relationships. The focus should not be just on quantity of likes and followers.
Success in business utilizing social media and digital marketing requires both art and science. Learning how to connect with your audience in an authentic and human way can help you stand out from the crowd, rise above the noise and build a relationship with your audience and customers that only you can do. Humanizing your brand enables you to build a relationship built on trust, authority and human connection that can be felt in the heart.
Social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn offer a goldmine of data and insights that can help you learn about your audience, understand their behaviors and empower you to connect with your audience in a unique, relevant and human way.
