In both of these instances, you may want to try out the delivery service or do some more research on it. At the very least, you’ll be more aware of your delivery options and the brand that posted the article or ad.

There’s a reason over 90% of businesses use social media for marketing. Social media has 5 billion active users, and 74% of shoppers use social sites when making purchase decisions.

The benefits of social media for delivery services

Social media is a versatile and valuable platform for delivery businesses, especially with a smart social media strategy in place. There are several social media advantages and disadvantages, with the pros far outweighing any cons.

Here are some of the top benefits of social media for food delivery services and other delivery businesses.

  1. Increased brand awareness: Social media is excellent for establishing your brand and increasing brand awareness. Creating a consistent, relatable brand can help you connect with your audience. Think of each post as a chance to cement your brand’s persona in people’s minds.
  2. Enhanced customer engagement: Social media is interactive by nature, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to engage with your current and potential customers. This engagement can help keep your company top-of-mind and increase brand loyalty.
  3. Quick communication with customers: Social media can also be an effective customer service channel. If someone complains on social media about an error with their order, you can quickly respond and correct the mistake, which protects your reputation. You can also quickly respond to positive comments, which helps to amplify them.
  4. Increased visibility: Social media offers lots of opportunities for people to discover your delivery company, including through your organic posts, ads, and interactions with other users.
  5. Increased website traffic and conversions: This increased visibility can eventually lead to increased traffic to your website or increased downloads of your app. Ultimately, this can lead to increased conversions and revenue.
  6. Cost-effectiveness: Social media is a powerful, cost-effective marketing tool. You can create a profile and post for free, or create affordable social media ads to increase your reach beyond organic posts.

Organic social media posts vs. social media ads for delivery services

Organic social media posts and paid social media ads typically look similar, but they differ in a few key ways.

Organic posts don’t require any payment, and your social media followers will see them. You can target paid ads, on the other hand, to specific groups of users, including people who don’t follow your business.

For more insight into social media posts and ads, check out the following examples.
