Whether your Facebook marketing efforts are failing, or you simply find that you are in need of direction, getting social media help is the best way to prevent your efforts from being wasted. While some businesses seem to have no trouble getting increased engagement and followers, you may often find that they have help behind-the-scenes. After all, unless your primary business is in social media, chances are good that you are too busy running your own business to make time to update Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube.

The good news is that once you get the assistance you need, you will be able to relax and focus on your many other things to do, with peace of mind in knowing that an expert is on hand to provide help with your social media marketing strategy.

How to know when it’s time to get social media help

How exactly do you know when the time has come to seek social media help? You can look out for these warning signs for starters…

  1. You are battling to develop a strategy. If you are struggling to work out of a plan of action, it may be time to seek help. One of the best ways that a social media consultant will help is to provide a strategy that can be put into place across your social channels. Without a strategy, it will be very hard to find direction and develop a cohesive presence that is geared towards providing real value to followers.
  2. You have run out of things to post. If you battle to think of anything to share on any of your social pages, it is time to get help. This goes hand in hand with strategy to help you develop a social media schedule. With a schedule, you will always have things to share, without being unsure of what to add on the spot.
  3. Your profiles have not been updated in ages. If you can’t even remember the last time you looked at your Facebook or Twitter page, let alone what you did with those YouTube logins, it is definitely time to get help. Regular, consistent content is crucial to succeeding in the social space. You cannot afford to let your pages go stagnant.
  4. You are not seeing any engagement. If, on the other hand, you are posting every day but never get any comments, shares or reactions, it’s also a sign that help is needed. Engagement comes down to the type of content you share, and how you share it. A strategy can go a long way in boosting engagement.
  5. You are not sure what to do to grow your reach. If you are struggling along, posting now and then, getting one or two comments but still feel unsure of how best to grow your following and align your social media goals with your business goals, it is time to get help.
