Following are few key tips to make your brand consistently visible in the social media landscape. These simple yet effective tactics can seamlessly help your brand to become recognizable globally.
Share Inspirational Stories:
Sharing is the key on any social media platform. Don’t feel shy to share your achievements. Let people know how your products/ services have been appreciated by your customers. If you are in a lifestyle businesses, share posts and photographs of happy and satisfied clients. This technique adds more social proof to your business.
You cannot grow a business if you don’t offer your product or service to your customers. Until you have a significant brand recognition, you may need to make special offers so people will consider your service without the social proof. Everyone loves a free or discounted offer. As a service provider, it is essential to have happy customers happy who provide great testimonials. Other than giving seasonal discounts, gift them little things on special occasions. These small tokens will build a strong bond between you and your clients.
Exchange Stories that Connect:
Always thinking from a business perspective won’t deliver results. Try to connect emotionally with your customers. Social media is the strongest tool to express your feelings. Share posts regarding personal stories or other community spirited activities or charities that you are involved in. These factors portray your identity not as good business women but as a good human being.
Address Your Client’s Pain Points:
Addressing your prospective customers’ pain points is a way that allows them to open up about their own problems. For example, if your business offers services for young first time mums, asks them about what keeps them up at night or what their quick and healthy go-to meal is for their family. These strategies not only help to know your customers’ preferences but also help you to come up with new ideas.
