We know consumers live in an omnichannel world and as digital marketing experts, we need to create a consistent user experience across search and social through the path to purchase. Search and social platforms provide unparalleled ad targeting and reach options while providing near real-time insights into your consumer. The trick is creating a framework that fosters the best of both worlds to drive ad spend efficiency.
The key to success is to create a continuous feedback loop between search and social. By beginning with what the consumer is searching (keyphrase research) or talking about (social listening), brands can create an integrated strategy across platforms. These ads should drive to consumer-centric content (text and visual), which is further optimized to improve quality score, CTR and bounce rates. Running search and/or social ads against this new content will inspire engagements (clicks, comments, time on site, shares). From analyzing the engagement, we can further refine our targeting, keywords and content which starts the loop over again. While in an ideal situation this process is conducted across both search and social platforms, brands or marketers can use insights from one platform to inform others ensuring both push and pull mediums are in sync.
