Social media is an effective outlet to promote your business, engage your target audiences and drive prospects to your webpage. To be assured your business is maximizing their presence within the social media channels, take a few minutes to refresh yourself with these simple social media tips.
1. Posting Schedule Social media is a channel where new information quickly becomes old information. If your business wants to make a presence in this network, it is important to keep your information up-to-date so those who are following you know exactly what is occurring within your business at that given time. Your followers want regularity, so provide them with consistent updates. As a business, determine how frequently you want to post new information. It can be three times a day or once a week. Regardless of what is appropriate for your business, allocate enough time into your schedule to be consistent for your followers.
2. Concise Create content for your followers that is short, yet very descriptive. Social media isn’t an appropriate channel to elaborate every specific detail, so don’t even attempt to do it. If your message isn’t direct and clearly stated, your audience members will not take the additional time to explore the content to see what it is that you are trying to achieve and tell them. Your followers are busy, so respect their time and deliver quality content that can be comprehended quickly and at a glance.
3. Engage The level of engagement you actively carry out with your audiences is an important component to maximizing the opportunities that are possible in all social channels. This is your opportunity as a business to show your customers you are interested in the contributions they have to make and that you appreciate their patronage. Ask your followers questions regarding your services, and when you receive feedback from you audience members respond promptly. The responses don’t need to be entirely formal, as this is social media, but they should be consistent representations of your business.
4. Assess Take time every few weeks to evaluate which posts your followers engage in the most. This can be determined by the amount of “likes, “retweets” or comments for the posts you upload. Once you are able to determine the type of content your followers tend to engage in, create content that is specific to them while continuing to deliver content that is suitable for your audience members who are submissively engaged.
