Social Media Brand Awareness Strategies
Creating your own memes, entertaining graphics, or jokes that have to do with your business is a good way to connect with your audience. People are more likely to share posts that make them laugh. If your goal is to reach more people, using humor is a great way to grow your audience.
Prospects want to know who they would be doing business with. Showing the faces behind the business is a great way to build rapport with new customers. You can do this by asking employees to take a before/after photo with their work or snapping candid shots around the office every so often. Social media is primarily about being social, so introducing your team is a natural way to create a solid presence on these platforms.
Content curation is sharing content that isn’t yours while providing proper credit to the original creator. (After all, stealing content is wrong, illegal, and we would never suggest such a thing.) This looks like sharing a Facebook post from your manufacturer, adding an Instagram Reel to your Stories, or sharing an article on Twitter and tagging the author. The creator might give you a shoutout or you might acquire new followers by simply using a different feature (like Stories.)
Social media is used by businesses large and small to grow their brand. Growing means reaching new people, and these strategies listed above will help you attract new followers to your social media channels.
