With the bevy of information available though social media, it’s important that an online business ensures that their social media stands out. Here are five ways to improve your online business’ social media campaign:
The content of your business social media campaign content, from Facebook status posts to your social media blog, needs to feature proper spelling and grammar. Errors and Internet slang/netspeak such as “lol” and “gr8” will only make your business look unprofessional and amateur. This might sound obvious, but many businesses have suffered a tarnished reputation for this very reason.
2. Optimize Material
Some online businesses also make the mistake of neglecting optimization. Even if content reads well, a lack of keyword phrases, hashtags, and editing (for organic searches) can damage a business’ social media standing. Social media optimization can be tracked using analytics to determine your content’s effectiveness, allowing you to make changes as needed.
3. Incorporate Images
Social media content is powerful, but may require graphics and/or photos to get a point across—which makes sense, given that the Internet is a visual medium. That said, only add images when appropriate; going overboard can leave a page looking cluttered and the content hard to read.
4. Determine the Most Successful Time(s)
Time is an important element of any online business, as there are always ideal times to update, post content, or otherwise work on your social media campaign. For example, many researchers suggest Facebook is best updated in the early afternoon to get better click-through rates. All social media sites are different, though use research and, if need be, trial and error to determine what times are best for your own social media.
5. Update Constantly
Social media is not static, changing constantly to match current technology and trends. Keep an eye on these changes and see what tools are available to you, including analytics programs or graphics software. It might seem challenging, but it’s a vital part of maintaining a tight social media marketing campaign.
