How will creating content improve my business?
There are a number of benefits to ensuring your social channels are producing content. Not only does content increase your exposure, it also creates brand awareness, demonstrates your expertise, generates consumer confidence and acquires new customers for your business.
There are over 2 billion people on social media – potential customers just waiting for you to connect with.
Who posts the content on social media?
We do. Sometimes it’s automated and depending on the content, we sometimes post in real-time. We like the human feel to the delivery.
However, in some instances the client wants post content themselves and that’s no problem either.
Do you answer the comments I receive on my social media and the messages?
Yes we do. According to Facebook, 87% of companies don’t respond to comments and messages on their business page.
We find it incredible that most companies have missed this key opportunity to have a dialogue with their customers. So we deal with it.
If you run my companies social media, what is my return on investment going to be?
Yes, this is a question we’ve had. We rejected working with the company further! Seriously, not having the best possible social assets is business suicide. Why? Because when a potential customer hits your brand in any capacity, you need to ensure there is no confusion in their mind. It’s not about return on investment, this is mandatory stuff.
Who owns the content The Magic Octopus produces?
You do, it’s yours. We produce content that you can be proud to associate with your brand – so go ahead and show it off!
Can you build me a website?
When you say you inject ‘love’ emotion into what you do, what are you talking about?
Love is the most powerful emotion in the universe. When undertaking anything, our mindset is one of ‘love’ for the task in front of us, no matter how big or small.
Our belief is the end result if ‘love’ is the feeling when we create it can only be harmonious, and if we don’t think we can ‘love’ it, we won’t do it.
Why don’t you have a twitter account?
Because we are going to leave that up to Donald Trump!
It’s our personal opinion that as a business you don’t need every social channel just because it’s there.
For sure we could put the time, money and effort into building one, but currently it’s not important to us.
The Magic Octopus’ focus is on Facebook and LinkedIn. We of course run all kinds of social channels for our customers.
How can you help create traffic to my site?
You don’t ‘create’ any traffic. The traffic is already there and you simply tap into it.
Our products are designed to do exactly that – ‘tap into traffic’.

Yes we do! Contact us straight away and let’s work together!
