Always bespoke to your audience

The key thing is that our activity is always bespoke to your audience – we’ll never use a one-size-fits-all approach or copy-and-paste templates.

Frequently asked questions
What makes Hallam different from other social media agencies?
We’re an award-winning agency with years of experience helping businesses to improve their brand awareness and create long-lasting relationships with their customers online. As a full-service digital agency, we know that successful social media relies on a range of disciplines, which is why we work closely with other departments. From content marketing and digital PR, to creative and SEO, we build an integrated approach for maximum results.
What is the difference between paid and organic social media?
Simply put, organic social media is the activity on a brand’s social channels which is posted directly without advertising spend or paid boosting. In essence, the posts are free. Whereas paid social media is backed by an advertising budget – targeted to reach those in your audience demographic. With organic social you are talking to those individuals who already follow you.
What are the benefits of organic social media?
As an essentially-free digital marketing channel, organic social media allows a brand creative freedom, an area for experimentation and even testing. Some benefits of organic Social Media include:
- Brand building and awareness
- Brand values and aesthetics
- Driving key sales messages
- Building your brand community and growing your audience
- Sharing industry authority and expertise
- Providing customer service
- Encourage web traffic and assist conversions
How do you measure organic social media success?
Organic social media is about brand building and delivering value to an audience which already exists. Admittedly, measuring its success can be tricky, as output is often more qualitative or subjective in nature. That being said, there are metrics that give a good indication of the success of your organic social media activity, including reach and impressions, engagement and audience growth.
How does social media impact SEO?
Organic social media is geared towards content sharing which, in turn, drives traffic to your website and helps to improve your SEO. A strong social media following can also boost keyword rankings, website authority and your social media profiles on search engines results pages. There is also more and more evidence to support the concept that search engines are placing increasing importance on social media profiles and activity, adapting their results to reflect this.
