Tip One: Develop a social media strategy
Have a basic game plan. Create long-term goals to guide yourself and make sure you have a clear idea of what you want your social media presence to be like. This ensures that your brand is recognizable and you’re able to create a unique digital reputation for yourself and your company.
Tip Two: Make it a priority
Social media users are able to tell when businesses make digital marketing their last priority. Hasty, irregular posts, blurry photos, and captions with typos and misspellings will only alienate you from the people you’re trying to reach. Prepare posts in advance and make sure that you’re paying attention to the engagement and reactions you’re getting from your audience.
Tip Three: Keep it personal
Interacting with a business on social media can be daunting, especially when people don’t know who’s behind an account. Being open and clear about who you are and what you do can help demystify and strengthen your relationship with your clients. Having content that shows what happens behind the scenes can make your social media presence more authentic.
Tip Four: Be consistent
Unreliably posting once or twice a week in this digital age shows that social media is not a priority for your business. It’s important to keep your audience updated on what you’re doing and stay consistent with your posts instead of leaving people hanging for days on end.
