Some data about the use of FB

In March 2019, over 2.38 billion Facebook users were active monthly in the world and every day over a billion and a half people connect to the platform. (Source: Facebook)

In Italy, however, about 35.7 million users are active on Facebook as recently released by Agcom; another interesting fact sees that thr 81% of Internet users, aged between 16 and 34, use the platform, especially to share moments, inquire and read reviews. (Source: Report Digital 2019 – Hootsuite)

Viewing these data, it is not surprising that companies have decided to exploit the platform for their online visibility and for the promotion of products and services and that Facebook has committed itself over the years to providing increasingly sophisticated tools to meet the needs of commercial realities present on social.

But being present is not enough, if badly managed, the online presence on Facebook can prove to be a real “boomerang” producing more damage than benefit, for this reason it is important to rely on professionals who know well the medium, its functions and its internal mechanisms.

How much it costs to manage a corporate Facebook page

A Facebook page is generally managed by a Social Media Manager (SMM), who is a technician specialized in social media, with strong communication and web marketing skills. Generally the SMM is supported by a Graphic Designer and a Copy Editor, who respectively take care of the graphic and textual part of the editorial plan of the page. For more complex projects and more demanding customers, an Account Manager and a Media Planner can also be added to the team, who respectively coordinate the activities and plan the advertising budget. From these indications it can be deduced that the cost for managing a page varies greatly depending by the team allocated and the quantity and complexity of posts that will be created, but in any case it is between a few hundred and a few thousand Euros per month. To this amount must be added the budget to be paid to Facebook to activate advertising, essential for fan growth campaigns, post promotion, event sponsorship, lead generation, etc.

Phases of the projects

1. Sector analysis

In this phase, the Social Media Specialists structure an in-depth benchmarking within which they analyze the customer’s fan page, the main trends in the sector, the most relevant competitors, and finally identify the macro topics outlining the strategy to be adopted to maximize the user involvement.

Timing: 7 working days (to be confirmed based on the specific project)

2. Company fan page creation (optional)

If it does not yet exist, we proceed with the creation of the company Facebook fanpage, inserting a profile image, devising the best format for the cover and the main information requested by the channel, all in line with the corporate image.

Timing: 7 working days (to be confirmed based on the specific project)

3. Editorial plan

The main tool used to manage communication on Facebook is the Editorial Plan (PED), created by the Social Media Manager, containing all the post proposals to be published on the customer’s fanpage. Each proposed content uses sector-specific creative codes and languages ​​with the aim of expanding the fan base and improving the customer’s brand image through emotional communication and careful programming of posts that are coherent, interesting and non-repetitive, and that push users to interact and share content. For this reason, communication “streams” are created based on macro themes to be proposed periodically, consisting of thematic posts characterized by a common thread and a common and recognizable graphic layout. The number of weekly publications is determined by the plan selected by the customer (1-2-3 or 5 posts/week – excluding production of original content, photos and videos). The graphics for the cover image of the fanpage are also designed and created, periodically updated. The PED is submitted to the customer for approval with an agreed procedure.

Timing: 7 working days (to be confirmed based on the specific project)

 

4. Post publication and interaction management

Once the client approves the PED, all content is scheduled and then published. The daily monitoring of comments, likes and interactions with the published contents (during working hours) is also carried out. The management of social interactions is structured through specific procedures agreed with the customer, as well as structured through an Interaction Management document and F.A.Q. (Crisis Management excluded).

Timing: daily activity
