8 Tips to Grow Your Business Using Social Media
In today’s market, harnessing the power of social media is a must if you want to grow your business and grow your brand. Here are 8 tips to Grow Your Business Using Social Media
From myInstagram posts to my Twitter announcements, I have found that there is no end to the new opportunities that a carefully managed social media campaign can bring.
With this in mind, any entrepreneur or aspiring entrepreneur who has yet to try out the power of social media needs to start working on creating a stronger online presence.
It’s something that I have seen bring great value to my own business and great value to others I have worked with in the market.
Through my experience, here are eight of the top tips that I have found can help any entrepreneur looking to expand their social media presence and their business.
1. Be Consistent
When it comes to your posts, your message and how frequently you use social media, keep consistency in mind.
It is truly the key to success with any social media campaign.
Make a plan for what you’re going to post and how often you’re going to post, and stick with it.
This should ideally be a few times a day or a week, depending on your goals and your following.
You can’t go from posting once a month to five times a day and then back and expect to have an engaged following.

2. Use all social networks.
You may have a social network that you prefer over others, but it doesn’t mean that all of your followers feel that way.
If you want to be successful with social media, then you need to post across all networks.
This means having and maintaining an account with all of the big social media sites, including Twitter,
LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram.
3. Format content to optimize for each platform.
Maintaining accounts across all of the major social media platforms doesn’t mean posting the same thing on four different sites every day. It means formatting content specifically meant for each platform.
You need photos for Instagram, long posts for LinkedIn, videos and memes for Facebook and short and snappy announcements for Twitter. All of your posts should be different, even if they are delivering the same message.
4. Push on those networks that really work well.
There are some networks that are going to work better for you than others. When you find that network that really works for your specific type of business and your specific type of customer, then you need to really push on that network and take advantage of the opportunity.

5. Make sure that your content aligns with your message.
When it comes to building a strong social media presence, getting likes and follows is great. However, it’s about more than just the number of responses each of your posts get. You may be tempted to deliver a post that simply gets a lot of attention, but that will do nothing for your brand if you don’t make sure that the content aligns with your message. Everything needs to fit within your brand identity and promote what it is that you’re trying to say to the world.
