Tips to master branding and social media management
- Study all platforms and their algorithms
Living in an age where Instagram is all the rage, you might be aware of how its algorithms lately have been making everyone change the way they create content. If you know this, then you know how important it is to study the algorithms of different platforms and the platforms themselves. So, thorough research will help you create content appropriate for different platforms and something that will suit their algorithm too. This is one of the most important ways to grow your brand’s social media presence.
2. Learn and define your target audience
You need to determine what your audience wants. Once you know what content your target audience likes and engages with and, voila, you have found a way to attract them and keep them hooked. So, the first thing you will need to do here is to define who your target audience is and then move on to posting experimental content to test what they like and dislike. Once you have that data, no one can stop you from taking your social media management game to the next level.
3. Bring your brand to life
This means, humanising your brand. This will give the brand more authenticity and a better connection with people. Nowadays, we all want to see more authentic things, especially on social media which is filled with people’s highlight reels. By humanising your brand, people see your brand not just as a brand but as an entity. This helps you seem more appealing to people’s emotions and feelings and take your brand a notch above the plain tag of being just a brand and helps you in building a unique social media presence.
4. Use the internet to your advantage
Thanks to the internet, our lives have become so much easier and more convenient. We have access to all sorts of tools and software to make processes simpler. Use these tools to your advantage. Wherever and whenever you can, use different tools to make tasks easier for you and your team. This will allow you space and freedom to not be worried about managing everything and focus more on being creative. For example, you can use SocialPilot, a post-scheduling tool that also allows you to evaluate the results with their analytics. These types of tools can contribute highly to your brand’s social media growth.
5. Don't be afraid to make mistakes
Social media is all about experimenting. This has its pros and cons. Sometimes, your content will do great but sometimes it won't, it’s a gamble. But this is a risk you should be willing to take; otherwise, you will never know what works and what doesn’t. So, if a post doesn’t perform as well as you thought it would, take it with a pinch of salt, apologise to your client if needed, and move on. Take this as your learning experience and learn why it didn’t perform well. This will help you learn what works for your brand and help you get all sorts of information on the kind of content that your audience likes and dislikes. So, in a way, it wasn’t a mistake, it was an experiment.
6. Do a thorough analysis and build a social media strategy
This simply means researching and analyzing the kind of content your audience likes or dislikes. What kind of people engage with your content? How much should you post in a day, etc. Answering questions like these will help you prepare a proper plan and social media strategy for your brand. This strategy will allow you to always stay one step ahead and plan accordingly.
