Choosing The Right Digital Channels For Your Marketing Need

 

There are tons of different digital media channels in the world now and they differ geographically, language wise as well as usability. For a company that wants to make use of these digital channels to help increase their visibility there are a few questions that need to be answered first.

  • What is the aim of this marketing approach?
  • What is the demographics that is been targeted?
  • Where do your target audience consume contents? Is it online? On mobile devices or their desktop computers?
  • Which of the social media are they mostly on?
  • Are they mainly drawn to visual content or text alone or a multimedia mixture?

Putting all these answers together help with the marketing strategy that will be executed.
Let’s use a phone company in Nigeria, West Africa as an example on the digital channels that will aid their marketing strategy.

Nigeria is a country where 65% of its population are young people under the age of 35 years and of this 65%, about 85% are connected to the internet via their mobile phones and they are connected to at least four social media network on their devices. The major social media channels been used in Nigeria are: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Whatsapp and sometimes 2go.

The phone company will generate the following types of contents that speaks to the target audience on what is so special about their own device that other phone companies do not have.

WEBSITE: This is the first thing that the company need to have. This is where all the information regarding the device specifications will be on. Also there will be information about the company, the people behind it, the vision and mission of the company and all the products details will be there. All the digital media platforms will be integrated on the site and that means with the click of a button you can move to the different social media pages from the website.

FACEBOOK: On this platform, you put up infographs, graphic contents embed with messages and clear functions of the device. Also community engagement is very paramount here, like asking teh audience what they think about the device, what do they want to be improved on, etc. Also there can be weekly sweeptakes and giveaways where you reward loyal fans with different gifts and can be accessories from the phone.

TWITTER: You can make use of graphic contents highlighting the benefits and uniqueness of the device. Pots pictures that were take with the device to show the camera quality of the device. Also you can decide to do a tweetchat to promote engagement with your fan community. More importantly is to create a unique hashtag on Twitter to track all conversation around your product as well as the ability to respond to customers complaints.

INSTAGRAM: Use this channels to post different high definition pictures of the unique functions and usability of the device. Also put pictures of brand ambassadors up on the channel. You can put together a contest by asking you community to take pictures with teh device and post on instagram using a specific hashtag.

YOUTUBE: Short videos about the products as well as review videos about the products will be uploaded. Videos created with the device should be uploaded with a hashtag to help with the curating the related contents.

Note that this is in respect to Nigeria, it is likely to be different for you. What do you think will work for you?
