What is social media asset management?
The rise of social media has forever altered the way users consume content online. With an ever-increasing amount of content being fed to users everywhere and the ability to reach an unprecedented number of people, it's no wonder that social media marketing has been growing steadily over the last few years. But with so much content being pushed online at any given time marketers need to cut through the noise and reach consumers with relevant, high-quality, brand-consistent content that resonates with their audiences.
Each social media platform plays by its own rules. Each demanding a specific format, creatives are often burdened with creating video and static content that fits every channel and screen size, while marketers struggle to populate channels correctly and keep track of what assets and campaigns belong to specific platforms.
Social media asset management is a class of software that allows creatives and marketers to create and share content faster while safeguarding brand consistency and reaching audiences effectively. The best social media asset management systems combine creative automation templating tools—that allow creatives to boost social asset production—with a central repository from which marketers can easily collaborate on, share, and distribute assets effectively.
Bynder's social media asset management system and creative automation tools help creatives and marketers meet the growing demand for video, dynamic, and static social content. Entirely cloud-based, they ensure seamless collaboration across remote teams, secure and streamlined communication with external stakeholders, and automated distribution to populate the right channels, at the right time.

What are the challenges of social media marketing?
The goals of social media marketing are varied: from building brand awareness to finding new customers and engaging them regularly while distributing relevant content. But social media marketing is extremely fast-paced. With less than two seconds to grab a viewer’s attention and a never-ending supply of visual content, posts become outdated in a matter of minutes.
The challenges that social media marketers face more often are:
- Very short production cycles
- The need for endless content variations
- Maintaining consistency across channels
- Communicating effectively with external agencies and stakeholders
- Meeting the demands of creative optimization
- Populating channels manually
