Incorporating Entertainment into Social Media Marketing Strategy

In its 26-year journey, social media graduated from being just a communication tool to a potent full-fledged marketing powerhouse. This evolution changed the game for marketers significantly, thrusting an entirely new set of responsibilities on them. With the rise of social media as an entertainment hub, brands quickly discovered the value of infusing the delight of entertainment into their social media content strategies. The objective of this article is to guide brands on how to exploit the entertainment aspect of social media to encourage better engagement and customer loyalty.

Social media platforms have transformed beyond simple modes of direct communication, stepping into the realm of brand awareness builders. The visibility of posts has become a game of algorithms, depending on multifaceted criteria like user behavior, engagement, and relevance. Brands realized that mere product-centric content could not guarantee visibility or engagement. The new approach demanded masterful storytelling, rich in entertainment value.

The COVID-19 pandemic nudged this approach further, necessitating a move towards low-fidelity (lo-fi) and personality-driven content. As the world moved indoors, average time spent by US users on social media understandably soared. Big brands led the shift, with the likes of Oreo capitalizing on lo-fi content’s charm, sparking creativity in advertising like never before.

Changes were also palpable in audience preferences. The pandemic heightened the audience’s desire for entertainment and storytelling, tipping the scales in favor of authentic, real-world, human content. This newfound affection for real faces and people behind brands was a shift credited to the prolonged state of quarantine, distancing them from human interaction.

This shift was effortless for some brands with a sense of adaptability. Prominent examples include Warby Parker and their #WearingWarby campaign, where they engaged their audience by sharing their customers’ pictures wearing their glasses. Nike, too, exploited the entertainment route with their “You Can’t Stop Us” campaign, creating inspirational content that garnered significant interaction.

Strategically incorporating entertainment into social media engagement is a reliable route to solidifying brand loyalty. Successful brands have demonstrated this by marrying their product messages with engaging, entertainment-rich content that resonates with their audience’s evolving tastes.

The key takeaway for brands is this: being resilient and adaptable, understanding the social media landscape, and effectively leveraging the entertainment element is crucial. Navigating these changes would not only establish a loyal customer base but also keep the brand relevant and resonant in a fiercely competitive market.

Incorporating the right digital tools, innovative ideas, and of course, keywords like brand awareness, community engagement, storytelling in marketing, and lo-fi content into your strategy will go a long way. Continuously measuring the impact will provide useful insights to finetune your social media strategy and meet evolving consumer needs in this digital, entertainment-led era.

Further optimizing your title tags, Meta description, and headers with these relevant keywords will enhance your brand’s search engine visibility. Including internal and external links will bolster your article’s authority as well as back up your data and statements. Above all, keeping your audience informed, interested, and on their toes with your engaging and informative content will be your coup de grace.

When adapting to the entertainment aspect of social media, remember that relevance is key. In the world of social media marketing, engaging entertainment isn’t a frill—it’s a necessity.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
