1. Sharing is Caring
It’s not nice keeping things to yourself; share your experiences with the world! Your followers are already interested in your company, so show them what they want to see. The closer they feel to you, the more they can relate to you, and then more they trust you. Do you have a current promotion running? Post it across all of your social media pages. Did you have a fun fact you thought your staff would enjoy? Well, your followers may enjoy it too. Give an insider’s perspective on what it’s like behind the scenes when you’re doing what you do. Ultimately, you’ll wind up creating a strong connection with potential clients.
2. Be One with Your Followers
Using image marketing to grow your business is proven highly successful. Seeing that visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text, you really can’t go wrong. The images that get the most engagement on social media are the, what we call, personal posts. These posts contain images of personal events that happen within your company. Let’s say a staff member has a birthday party at work– post about it! Have a new team member on board? Announce your excitement to the world, while also creating a fun a friendly working environment. The goal is to be personable to catch the eyes and trust of potential clients.
3. Play Tag
There are several ways to reach a wider audience, with one of them being tagging. Whenever you create a post, with or without a picture, you have the ability to tag. This can be a person, company, or phrase. When you tag a person or company, their followers can then see your post, thus strengthening your reach. This can drive more traffic to your page and open the door to more engagement. The other way of tagging is through hashtags. The old-timers call the hashtag symbol a pound sign, but boy does it carry an entirely new meaning nowadays! Hashtags are used to enhance your post by linking to all other posts using the same hashtag.
