May 14, 2024 Team Beyond words

Social media: a treasure trove of potential customers, brand awareness, and booming sales. But how do you crack the code and unlock this goldmine? Beyond Words is here to equip you with the master keys! 

Key #1: Know your audience.

Tailor your content to their interests, platforms, and online behavior. Did you know that Gen Z spends an average of 2 hours 43 minutes a day on social media? Knowing these habits allows you to target them on the right platforms and at the right times.

Key #2: Compelling content is King (and Queen).

Eye-catching visuals, informative captions, and engaging stories will stop the scroll. Studies show that tweets with graphics garnered 89 per cent more favourites and 150 per cent more retweets. Furthermore, tweets with images receive 18% more clicks than those without. But visuals are just part of the story. Craft informative captions that tell a story, ask questions, and spark conversation.

Key #3: Embrace the power of video.  

Social media loves video! In 2023, Wyzowl reported that 86% of businesses use video marketing. From bite-sized product demos to behind-the-scenes glimpses, capture attention and boost engagement.

Key #4: Be consistent, not frantic. 

Regular posting keeps your brand top-of-mind. But quality over quantity! Plan your content calendar with a mix of post types and schedule them for optimal reach.

Key #5: Paid Ads can be your ally. 

A strategic social media ad campaign can supercharge your reach and target laser-focused demographics.

Key #6: Listen and respond.

Respond to comments and messages promptly. Show your audience you care! When reaching out on social media, 16% of consumers expect brands to respond within minutes, while 69% expect a response within the first 24 hours. 

Key #7: Collaborate with Influencers.

Partnering with relevant influencers can introduce your brand to a whole new audience and boost credibility. Micro-influencers (with 10,000 to 50,000 followers) often have higher engagement rates than mega-influencers (1,00,000+ followers), according to Influencer Marketing Hub.

Key #8: Analyse and adapt.

Track your results! Use social media insights to see what's working and what's not. Analyze engagement, clicks, and reach to understand what resonates with your audience. Be ready to adapt your strategy for continuous improvement.
