Roofing and Siding Contractors Alliance – Social Media for Marketing for 2019

Act I 

Setting

Social Media networks have been around for over a decade, yet companies are not using these networks to the fullest potential.

Role

As business owners and sales professionals, you need to communicate and educate your customers on how to buy roofing, siding, other services. Social media networks are TACTICS for communication.

Point A 

Call to Action

Point B 

Most businesses treat social media marketing as a single discipline

My goal is help you understand how social media could fit into your 2019 Marketing Plan.

BUT social media marketing is really four equally important parts – The Social Success Cycle

Act II

Key Point (5 minutes)

Explanation (15 minutes)

Detail  (45 minutes)

The World that I operate within:

The PESO Model, the Marketing Funnel, and Social Success Cycle

What CONTENT do you want to share?

It is all about good CONTENT – Original, Earned Media, from other sources.

Because your projects require significant investment…

PESO Model to/from the Marketing Funnel

Content is AMPLIFIED

Content is key to keeping TOMA as prospects enter and exit the Marketing Funnel.

Earned Media is PR, a source of content – e.g. TV, print, radio, awards, etc.

 “Social Proof” is more powerful than paid advertising because it comes from an outside source

Now, let’s talk about how the PESO Model interacts with The Social Success Cycle.

OWNED Media is a Press Release/blog post about a topic concerning your business

Shared Media is Social Influencing. This establishes your authority in construction.

Social Selling is generating leads and sales from existing customers and prospects

Social Listening is customer service to be moved to a private channel, such as email.

Social Networking – Build multiple networks on multiple platforms and connect them!

Social Selling – How do you generate sales on social media channels? You don’t (not directly)

Use a value-first strategy to generate leads and sales. What does it mean to you?

Who Owns Social Media? They Do. Don’t build your brand on rented ground. Move prospects from channels you don’t own to channels you do own (email list)

People Buy… From People They Know, Like, and Trust. Give your social media followers a reason to know, like, and trust you.

LinkedIn

Your Personal LinkedIn Page – Give followers a reason to know, like, and trust you

Exposes You and Your Company Brand to People Searching for Your Services
