Ryan Pena’s Approach to Social Media
Ryan Pena is known as an innovator and digital strategist with over 10 years of experience in his field. He’s worked with several organizations over the years, including MentorMate and Capella University. With a reputation for inspiring change, Pena is always looking for the best ways to create and sustain genuine relationships online.
Some digital marketers focus on simply blasting out as much content as possible, but Pena understands that finding success on social media is about making a difference in the lives of your target audience.
A great photo or video may get you some likes, but this relationship will only last if you form a two-way relationship with the user.
Pena talks regularly about showing the human side of your social media campaign, focusing on shared interests with your target audience, and being as open and transparent as possible.
Navigating the Modern Social Media Landscape
Apps like Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram are changing fast. These companies haven’t been around long and they’re always looking for ways to improve their features and services, particularly those for small businesses and digital marketers. After all, these companies make almost all of their money from advertising.
But keeping up with the latest features and upgrades can be a challenge. Marketers need to stay on their toes without losing sight of the big picture. They also need to use their time wisely by taking advantage of new features and the latest social media marketing tools.
But it’s not just social media that’s changing. The digital marketing landscape is changing business as usual in many different industries, particularly healthcare.
During his time at Be The Match, Pena has helped the company navigate these changing times. He’s optimized the company’s social media profiles and campaigns for peak engagement, while focusing on the company’s main objective by encouraging visitors to sign up as blood marrow donors or register as patients.
He’s helped the company create content that appeals to the emotions of its target audience. The company’s posts emphasize the connections between blood cancer patients and their marrow donors, resulting in emotionally satisfying content that appeals to a wide audience.
Pena has also shown the company the power of user generated content. Instead of manufacturing original content, the company regularly highlights photos and videos from some of its users, including blood cancer patients and donors. This gives the company’s followers a chance to learn about their users’ experiences, while staying invested in what’s happening at the company.
Ryan Pena loves talking about and sharing his experiences as a social media stringiest, while helping aspiring digital marketers achieve their goals.
