2018 August 02
Are you struggling to increase your followers? Is your online presence close to being non-existent?
It takes time to settle into your social media accounts. However, there might be something wrong if months go by without any noticeable improvement.
For starters, you need to ask yourself the following questions:
- What is the purpose of this account?
- Who is my audience?
- Have I been consistently active online?
- Do I interact with the followers?
- Have I been listening in?
- Am I sharing relevant information with them instead of just promoting my own business?
If you’ve answered with “No!” or “I have no idea!” to most of these questions, then you are in trouble!
Here are some beginner’s tips to get your social media strategy back on track:
Let’s start with the basics
Sometimes it is better to take a few steps back when things aren’t going well. That is why we need to clear up some essential things about social media management.
Here is what you need for successful social media marketing:
- A plan: Do not loiter in the social marketing arena. Arm yourself with clear strategies so you can come out victoriously.
- A voice: Social media is a medium where you can talk less and gain more. Use it to dazzle customers with a witty, funny side and a unique voice.
- A conversation: Your social media presence should have one main goal - to get connected. Therefore, it is important that you interact with your audience and make them comfortable.
Next up, we’ll look at the tools to help you build engagement.
