Top 10 Social Media Tips for Small Businesses:
Decide on which social media platforms are most effective for your business. If you don’t have a lot of time to give to social media then do not try to spread yourself too thin over the platforms!
Discover the best times to promote your businesson each social platform. The type of business you are will affect the time that your customers are most active online and therefore most likely to notice your content. Articles from websites like ‘Sprout Social’ provide updated information on this.
Use relevant hashtags. Check to see how much the hashtag you are about to use is in use. If it is trending, send that tweet out quickly to maximise your impressions!
Interact with your followers. The more supportive you are of your followers, the more likely that they are to support you in return which will lead to greater overall statistics.
Look into Twitter hours. This aspect of marketing could introduce your services to the local community.
Make sure you always include photos or videos in the content that you produce. This can enhance your engagement.
Don’t be afraid of injecting a little personality into your content. This will help you stand out.
Read up on UTMs. Once you have this extra tag added to your URLs, it will help you track & figure out what is working and what isn’t with your audience.
Make sure your posts are short and concise. Give your audience a taste of what you have to offer and then signpost them back to your website for more information.
Don’t just post to constantly sell your product. Look to inform, engage and entertain too.
