Lisa Kalner Williams, Product Marketing Manager at Agorapulse, joins the Social Pros Podcast to discuss using the scientific method to test social marketing experiments.
Experiments in Social Marketing
Start with a question, form a hypothesis, perform an experiment, analyze data, repeat. This is a basic summary of the scientific method. It probably brings to mind images of white lab coats, glass beakers, and Bunsen burners.
What if this was also how you described your day to day approach to social marketing? That’s exactly what Lisa Kalner Williams is doing at Agorapulse, and it’s all for your benefit! That’s certainly not to say you shouldn’t be performing your own experiments though!
When it comes to social, what is effective today will most likely be ineffective or out of style in less than a year. By consistently investigating and testing out new ideas, you can learn what’s working, what isn’t, and why, so you can stay on top of the trends and keep your business winning.
In This Episode
- Why anecdotes do not equal data
- Why effective ideas can become ineffective and vice versa over time in social
- Why captioning is so important with video
- How Instagram stories have become the place for authenticity
