Have you ever taken the time to craft a unique campaign for your business’s social media channels, only to have no more than a handful of people like, click on, or even see your posts?
If you have, you know about the heart-rending disappointment that I’m talking about.
And it’s pretty disappointing. Isn’t it?
On the bright side, it’s good to know that you’re not alone and that poorly performing content is more common than you’d think.
Fortunately, you can remember a few tips and tricks to create better content and boost your brand’s social media engagement levels.
Below, we’re exploring a few simple tips for boosting engagement from your followers on social media!
Study Your Target Customers
If you want to create and sell products that fly off your shelves. Then you’re going to need to learn as much as you can about your target audience.
Essentially, the more you know about the people that you’re trying to sell to, the better you’ll be able to craft your ads and marketing campaigns to resonate with them.
Think about it this way; imagine that you own a company that sells sneakers and running shoes.
If you’re able to get into the minds of the types of people interested in these products, you’ll be able to get better ideas on how you can sell to them effectively.
For instance, by learning about your customers, as in people interested in sneakers and running shoes, you might find out that a good majority of your target audience is sports, exercise, hiking, or even nutrition.
These are just examples, but the point is that these are all topics that your target audience will be interested in.
In turn, knowing this information allows you to use these topics in creative ways to help connect your business with its target audience.
The better your content, the more people will like it. And the more people like your content, the more engagement you should receive.
Recycle Old Content
Sometimes it just happens that you create your posts too quickly and miss out on information, images, or ad copy that could have helped it perform better.
That’s why, rather than discounting your old content that didn’t do great. It might be worth taking the time to repurpose that content by adding new content to it.
You can simply re-share the posts, or maybe you’ve already created a few posts about the different types of athletic footwear your store has available.
Instead of leaving it at that, why not revisit those posts. Even if they’ve already been published for some time, and see how you can improve them.
For instance, you might add more content to the existing guide, or you might choose to add images or videos to the posts, links, or anything else that will offer even more value to your followers.
And don’t forget to ensure that your content is appropriately branded with your business’s logos and graphics. That way, your readers and viewers will be more likely to connect your business with the quality content they’re reading.
Every marketer knows that ads and copy aren’t complete with a call to action of some sort.
After all, how are your readers or viewers supposed to know what you want them to do unless you tell them?
When you create a video or piece of content for your brand, it’s essential to include a CTA or call-to-action at the end. Essentially, this tells your viewer or reader precisely what it is you want them to do next.
For instance, you’ll often see YouTube videos that end with a call-to-action asking the viewer to like the video and subscribe to the channel.
However, you can craft your CTA in any way, shape, or form that you feel will adequately resonate with your target audience, as well as the overall goal of your content.
In other words, CTAs aren’t only used to ask viewers or readers to subscribe.
You can also use them to ask your readers to share your content on social media. Share any comments or questions they might have, or even click through and read other content on the same website.
Just make sure that you make it obvious!
