A good social media campaign will maximize results while also helping with brand awareness and trust! So, let’s break it down, what makes a good campaign?
Setting Attainable Goals
The first step in making a good campaign is all within setting goals for the campaign. These goals can range from brand awareness, to leads, to pageviews, to link clicks!

Once you know which direction you are going with your campaign you will have to set actual campaign goals. These will include actual conversion numbers that you are trying to reach! Be sure to set goals that are attainable for your business. If your goal is to increase your page likes by 5k over the course of a one week campaign, although it’s not IMPOSSIBLE – you’re better off to keep your momentum going by setting some more realistic goals for your business that will point you in the right direction with your business.
