5 tips for your social media presence
Good planning is half the success: set measurable goals, such as a certain number of posts you want to create each month. When defining your social media goals, use the SMART principle – goals should be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time bound. Also, plan your posts in a well-structured content plan. There are numerous templates online for this.
Selecting the platform: determine which social media platform is best suited to your business. Perhaps it’s just one, but maybe several or even all of them.
Allocate responsibilities and tasks: getting started is easy, but carefully consider the maintenance and upkeep of a social media channel in advance and nominate a person in the company who will be responsible for it. The good thing about it is there are many tools to allocate the responsibility and the posts.
Pictures and videos are popular: use pictures, videos and graphics whenever possible. Tell your stories and let your customers participate. However, just make sure that the visual elements are relevant to both the content of the post and your target group.
Social media is not the same as advertising: most of your social media content should not market your business, but add value for the target group. This is exactly how you can present yourself in a more personal way and show your services to your customers.
