One of the biggest challenges of social media marketing is that engaging in a conversation and participating in a social network, let alone multiple social networks, can take time. The process of identifying opportunities within social media, and then creating content that fits the rules and appeals to the proper audience, can be daunting.
In addition, it’s essential to measure the effect of social media marketing, which also can be a bit tricky. Since you’re engaging with audiences on a closed platform, you’re often limited to their analytics and reports provided by that social media network. Therefore, you have to be prepared to use outside tools and services to develop a method to measure the impact of each channel on your bottom line.
