Tips on Tuesday

It is no secret that 2020 has been at best challenging.

Coffe break

At this time of year we would usually be giving the advice that it’s important to be taking a break if your sector permits, and despite everything that has changed life to a “new normal” we think the advice is just as pertinent as ever.

2020 has been stressful, tiring and demanding.  It is ok to have a rest and take some time away from your social media channels.  In fact, looking after YOU and your employees and making sure they have a break is probably the best contribution towards marketing you can make.

If at all possible Take some time off to relax, recharge your batteries and ensure you’re refreshed to move into the final quarter of 2020!

Tips on Tuesday

Remember in order to have a successful social media presence, you need to get social (yup, the clue is in the title!)

Conversation

The way we market our products and ourselves is ever-evolving.  When we used traditional marketing methods such as print, television and radio we were talking at people.  Now we have channels where we can talk with people; the aim is to create a place where mutual conversations can take place!

At a time when online conversations are more important than ever, have a think about how you can start some meaningful interaction.  Something as simple as asking your clients how they are, whether they need anything or how they’re coping with lockdown can make an important impact.  Why not ask for opinions on your products; try a poll and ask for the favourite between two items etc.

Whilst you can’t see your customers face to face it is vital that you keep that online dialogue open and flowing!

Tips on Tuesday

Clients often ask me if there’s any point them being on Instagram because they don’t believe their business lends itself to the channel.

Polaroid

My response is, if you can take a picture of something related to you or your business then get on Instagram!

I love Instagram to have a bit of fun with, to really show the personality behind the business.  As we all work towards a new normal, why not try using Instagram now.  Share some images of your new work-mates, your new workspace.  Keep the team together whilst they can’t actually be together!

Tips on Tuesday

Did you know it is just 10 weeks tomorrow until Christmas Day (sorry….sorry!)

Christmas

Use your time wisely! Make sure you have relevant social media goals for the next 10 weeks with a firm idea of what you want to achieve before Christmas.  As always given the time constraints, make sure your goals are achievable!

Don’t be afraid to share your company’s Christmas traditions across social media – giving yourself a little more personality at this time of year can be a really good thing. 

It is also important to schedule in a break! Don’t be afraid to take some time off from your social media schedule over the festive season, with a view to coming back refreshed and ready to go in January!

You have 10 weeks….how are YOU going to use them?

Tips on Tuesday

Remember what is the ultimate goal on social media – regular engagement from your followers to create a really strong online brand.

Message

An important consideration when dealing with your social media schedule is how you are going to manage your notifications.  Whether you receive a message, or someone comments on one of your posts it is important to respond in a reasonable amount of time.  Even if you choose a tool like an automated message response on Facebook, a timely reply from a real person is still important.

If you don’t want notifications turned on – which is understandable if you are getting a large number – why not set aside some blocks of time each day to deal with and respond to notifications? 

You can also use the various analytical tools to monitor which of your posts gets most interaction, which will enable you to manage notifications more thoroughly.

Tips on Tuesday

Back with a slightly more sensible Tip on Tuesday than “don’t break your foot” but one that can be applied to all your social media channels.

Image of all social media icons

Every message you send out is marketing.  You might not think it, especially if you’re not directly advertising a service, but each time you make a comment on any of your social media channels you are representing your business and therefore marketing it.  With that in mind make sure your messages are well presented and structured and make a valuable contribution. 

Remember though, contribution isn’t necessarily directly about your business, simply a valid and relevant or even personally interesting comment.
