Just a quick stats update today. We’ve been paying for a Facebook as for a few days now, at a cost of about £5 a per day, just to test the water really. It has certainly accelerated the liking of our Facebook page and, hopefully, we’ll reach the heady heights of 250 likes very soon!
We’re hoping to launch our PledgeMusic campaign soon, to pre-sell our upcoming album, hence testing out what generates the most response. You may recall, we boosted a post a little while back, without much noticeable impact. We appeared to get lots of activity but none of it translated into ‘Likes’. The ad is certainly proving more effective. Emma set up the ad so I’ll ask what sort of people she targeted and let you know.
Anyway, here’s our social media progress so far.
I’ll highlight a couple of things.
- We’ve slowed right down on the Facebook posts, which isn’t recommended. Two posts a week is really the target. Despite this, the ad has ensured we’ve generated some interest.
- Tweets has increased, largely because I’m playing catch up with this blog, and Twitter is the only place new posts get announced at the moment. This will change as I get more up to date and notifications will go out on Facebook, Google Plus and I’ll pin links to Pinterest. This activity has had no impact on the number of followers on Twitter. Although I often feel Tweeting i a bit like a drop of water landing in an ocean. The chance of it having much impact is very low.
