What is SMO or Social Media Optimization?
Social Media Optimization (SMO) and Social Media Management (SMM) are two marketing strategies that share many objectives, control the Social Media aspect of your business. Lets dig into the first one:
So, what is Social Media Optimization? Well, SMO is basically using social media channels as a catalyst to grow your company’s online presence. Where some businesses tend to just set up a profile on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter to be where their customers are, SMO is about strategically creating, building and maximizing your social media plan to connect with your target audience.
It is about the development of strategies focused on your business profiles on social networks, with the aim of using the different platforms available on which we can promote your content such as videos, blog posts, news or articles.
Just as SEO tries to optimize your website for search engines, Social media optimization increases the visibility of profiles on social networks, as well as the content published on them, always seeking to be found by users who are looking for information and resources related to your business.
Any SMO strategy needs an audience interested in the content you share. No matter how much we post, if the strategy and analysis is missing, the published content will not work well. However, if we focus your content well, and apply the BausLabs strategy, we can provide good audience levels and generate a good amount of traffic without spending money on Ads.
The communication that any business or brand publishes through its profiles in social networks is more important than one might think. A well-defined strategy helps the company easily achieve its outreach goals. These strategies must have cohesion between the different social networks and the business objectives.
What is SMM or Social Media Management?
Also called Social Media Marketing, Social Media Management is the process of analyzing social media audiences and developing a strategy that’s tailored to them, creating and distributing content for social media profiles, monitoring online conversations, collaborating with influencers, providing community service, and monitoring, measuring, and reporting on social media performance and ROI.

Choosing the Social Media Network?
Did you know that social media can help you improve your sales by almost 50%? Therefore, it is important to know which of them to take into account, depending on your type of business.
Seven out of ten people declare themselves a fan or follow certain brands through the internet, according to the latest report from the Annual Study of Social Networks carried out by IAB. In addition, around 25% recognize that if said company does not have a profile on any platform (be it Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) it inspires distrust.
But this does not stop here, more than half of the users affirm that, before buying a specific product or service, they first look for information on social networks. So, if your business doesn't have social profiles yet, what are you waiting for? In the middle of the digital age, being present on the internet has become essential.
The most important thing to take into consideration is choosing the social networks to promote your business, you have to take into account several factors:
You must nurture that community with valuable content. It is useless to have a profile in which you do not post anything, have no interactions and there is hardly any activity. On the contrary, move your social networks, it is essential to carry your business forward.
You will be present in the networks that you can cover. It is not necessary to create accounts on each and every one of the different platforms. It is always better that you have fewer social networks and make good use of them than to have a presence everywhere and not upload content or respond to enquiries.
If a social network does not fit to promote your business or the audience you are looking for is not on it, it is not necessary to create a profile. Spending effort, work and time in creating content that is barely effective for having a presence in a social network is not worth it.
Think about where your target audience is and act on it. Before creating your profile, study each and every one of the different platforms to know where your target audience is and thus be able to promote your business in the best possible way.
Do things with love… and you will get positive results! Having desire, contributing ideas, enthusiasm and being motivated is something essential that will be reflected in your social networks. Never forget that, currently, we live in the digital age where a large part of your audience will find you through the internet.
