We want to share some tips that will help you use social media effectively to market your business. Often, this requires more of an investment of time than budget!
- Be A Resource – Even if you have nothing concerning your own business to post, don’t let your social media platforms fall flat! A good way to keep your audience tuned in is to give informative posts on the industry itself. Any sort of topics that concern your business are a great way to fill the gap on your social media and have consistent posts.
- Build Relationships – Social media is easily one of the best ways to connect with other businesses. Having relationships with other businesses can boost your audience and give you a stronger presence online. Commenting and liking others’ posts are two good ways to build and maintain these work relationships throughout social media.
- Gage Your Audience – Knowing your audience on social media is imperative. Take notice of what posts get the most likes, comments, and general feedback from clients and other businesses. This will help pinpoint exactly what to post and when.
- Hashtags – Hashtags on social media are there to connect one topic together with others in a timeline of posts that relate to each other. This is a great way to connect with an audience and other businesses specifically about one certain topic. They will aid in getting your business name found when potential customers search for a specific hashtag.
- Videos, Images, and Links – Visuals are crucial for social media success. Your posts should stand out. Give your viewers something to remember whether it’s a short video, an image, or a link to interact with. This can give a new perspective on your business and make you memorable as well as interesting and interactive.
- Have A Plan – Having a thought-out plan for your business and your social media can only help you on the road to success in this marketing channel. Providing goals, calendars, and structure for all your social media platforms will give you a sense of what you need to accomplish in your posts and how you’re going to do it. Every post should have a general goal of what the audience will take away from it.
