It was our privilege to speak today at Robinson Chamber‘s luncheon. We shared our 10 tips to stay ahead of the competition on social media.
Make a Plan
- Decide how often you want to post on social media and schedule your posts accordingly.
- Consistency is the key with social media, slow and steady wins the race!
Make Every Post Count
- Choose QUALITY over QUANTITY!
Look at What’s Working
- Monitor your social media presence to see what is working and reaching your customers (and what isn’t).
- Don’t be afraid to make changes (or even drop a platform) when your plans aren’t getting you good results.
Keep Everything Updated
Make sure that all your accounts stay updated with your latest:
- Cover Photo (or video!)
- Profile Photo (use your logo!)
Use Logo and Consistent Branding
- Use your logo on your social media posts.
- Your offline (print) advertising, website, and social media should all have the same branding and feel.
Keep It Short and Simple
- Posts under 140 characters have better engagement.
- Post with emojis get higher engagement.
- Use short (under 45 seconds) video to engage with your audience and tell your story.
- Post about the people in your organization.
- Your followers love to see the people behind the company.
- Share fun facts about your employees (and the company).
Link Back to Website
- Link back to your website in posts to give more information and drive traffic to your website.
