The products or services will be more familiar to existing and potential customers.
2. Brand loyalty will increase
Brands that uses social media as their channel to the world are most likely to have customer loyalty because they are more connected to their leads, potential leads and customers. Social media has this open strategy of morphing customers to be brand loyal because one they follow the brand, it will already be their custom to patronize the brand because it’s what they have used and proven with good quality.
3. Opportunities of conversion
Social media marketing uses social media as a platform to convert potential leads into customers through posts and following options. When leads saw your post and got interested to follow you, they will immediately have the access to your products and services and will be able to see your new updates. By then, they will also see your old and recent customers’ feedbacks which can encourage them to try your products. They will have interaction. Not all interaction leads to conversion but it increases the possibility.

Brands act like people in social media and they do the business with customers virtually. They are more likely to try the brand of the effective ads that convince them.
