On the second day of Christmas, we celebrate the following we have on Selesti’s social media accounts. It may be that you found us through your twitter feed, our Facebook page, or even on Google Plus; however you got here, we just want to say thanks for showing your interest and support for our award winning digital agency!
At the time of writing, we have 204 Facebook likes and 2716 Twitter Followers. If you’re one of them, cheers, but if you’re not, why not? We’re the Stand-Out Agency for 2013, in the Future 50, so come on, what’s not to like? Our social media keeps you up to date with some of the latest in web design and development, along with providing some light reading just like this!
You may be thinking, why put so much effort into something that people use to share baby pictures, or just keep up to date with the latest from Joey Essex? Well, Social media has really grown in importance over the last year, whether for retail platforms to shift their wares - 21% of Pinterest users have been shown to buy items after pinning them in the US - or just to grow a brand’s online presence, digital marketers now use platforms like Facebook and Twitter more than ever to interact with their audience.
The benefits are twofold as well, as Google has also made more of what they call ‘social signals’ in their algorithm in recent years. The impact of shares, likes, and especially Google +1s have been shown to have a real effect on optimisation. It’s all about showing authority with SEO, and if more people are seen to like your stuff online, you will look like the true genius in your field. Makes sense really.
We’ve not only pushed our own social media this year, but also stepped up our efforts for some of our wonderful clients. This has included creating social media plans for The Health Insurance Group and designing a new theme for them consistent with their website branding, to ensure visitors that catch them on social media immediately understand their offering. We’ve also helped to brand up the social media accounts for Support Adoption For Pets, providing them with some pretty infographics that help their followers keep up to date with their charitable efforts, and theming their social profiles for crimbo. Go on, give them a like for Christmas...
We know you like us, so keep it right here on the Selesti blog to hear more about our world in 2013 and all things digital throughout the twelve days of Christmas. So far the Selesti song has some fantastic gifts from our ‘true love’, whoever that is...
