Social Media

Organic Vs. Paid Social Media

In this post, we will have a glance at Organic and paid social media posts. What is the difference between the two? And which among them is best for business.

If the first social era was intended only for interaction with friends and family, then acquisition, and conversion is a new era objective. In early days of business, social posts rise much faster than retail e-commerce. In 2014, the top 500 retailers gained $3.3 billion, up 26 percent. Most retailers we work with see greater rises in customer traffic than any other medium of social driving.

If we talk about twitter, twitter isn’t just about chat and content; it’s now a built-in tool for the acquisition, remarketing, and retention of existing fans and consumers. Compared to search and email marketing, it can be fairly new. However, it is a medium in which most eCommerce teams ramp up investment.

Define the use of organic and paid social media


Use free tools from each social network to build and interact with a social community, share messages, and respond to customer comments.

For starters, Hootsuite or Buffer is organic for scheduling and publishing tweets on Twitter. You can pay for a Hootsuite or Buffer license, and there is no fee for the publication of your tweets by Twitter.


Pay to display ads or supported social network users using a profile, e.g., demographics, for any medium (text, picture, video, carousel, etc.). Depending on the type of ad planned, a cost is incurred; many ads, for example, cost per click (CPC).

Organic Vs. Paid Social Media

The two sides of the same coin are organic and paid social media. One just doesn’t work without the other.

Your organic contents are all your Twitter tweets, Facebook posts, or Pinterest pins. It is the basis of your efforts in social media. It is the driver behind the commitment of the community. When you remove this strategy, you remove a large part of your social media activity. So your ads fail when you do that.

You may wonder how, especially if you are implementing advertising targeting and bidding. Shouldn’t people see my ad, press, and keep returning? Of course, people can see your ad and click, but they won’t stay around if they find that you have a minimal organic social presence.

How can you take your content a step further?

Through synchronizing paid social media and organic social media approaches, you optimize your total engagement. Bio-based social media is designed to raise awareness about your brand, but it is a great task to improve loyalty. Actually, the two go together.

Let’s assume that somebody will discover your brand via a Facebook ad; then, the user can search your different social media profiles. In short, the ad has increased your brand’s profile, and a strong organic presence is a strong link to your customers.
