Some businesses or industries seem to have a much easier time coming up with fun or exciting social media campaigns to help promote their products or engage their audiences. Even if the products you sell are average items and don’t necessarily scream excitement or fun, there are still certain strategies you can employ to succeed on social media platforms. Follow these steps to keep your social media audiences engaged and informed.
Focus on Information or Education
Not all social media posts should be goofy or fun to drive engagement. Depending on your industry, your audiences may look to you as a vital source of information for products or services that are available within your industry. In fact, most informational or educational posts will perform just as well as fun posts if your audience is right for your particular industry.
Latch on to Trends or Influencers
One easy way to gain exposure for your business is to find current trends or influencers that would work well for your particular products or services. This can be an incredibly effective strategy for getting your name out to potential customers you may not have been able to reach previously. Influencer marketing has grown in popularity in recent years and nearly every industry could benefit from this practice.
Humanize Your Business
One of the easiest ways to build customer loyalty for your business on social media is by humanizing your business. Instead of being a faceless company, try to interact with your audiences publicly without the legalese filter. It is much easier to form a bond with a company as a potential customer if you are actively responding to their concerns or questions on social media platforms.
Share Relevant Content
In a recent blog, we talked about the difference between curated content and created content. It is important to remember not all the content you post has to be original. By posting relevant information, you can establish your business as an informational hub for your industry. Just try not to promote a competitor or their products in the process.
