Below you’ll find several tips you can use as the basis for your social media posts, along with ways to craft your posts for maximum impact.
Social media is a powerful marketing tool, and it’s crucial to be able to effectively leverage this resource in today’s market. One effective way to use social media is through engagement posts.
Typically, an engagement post involves a thought-provoking tagline connected to an eye-catching image or infographic and highlights a simple, direct message relevant to your reader. The goal is to open a conversation on a topic relevant to your audience.
Know your purpose. What’s the message you want the reader to walk away with? Your central message (the takeaway) should be clear and easy to remember.
Know your audience. Put yourself in the reader’s shoes. Whom are you trying to reach? What affects them and what matters to them? It also helps to think about your own habits as a consumer; what’s true for you is likely to be true for others as well.
Keep the conversation going. Provide a concrete way for the reader to engage by asking a direct question or extending an invitation to learn more.
Customize the content. Some templates need additions or changes before they’re ready to be used. Before posting, check your template to see if it needs any customization like contact info or brand name specification.
Leverage hashtags, tags, and mentions. Hashtags are especially essential to increase the reach of your post.
Emojis are 🔥. Today’s communication is increasingly image-based, so emojis can be an effective tool when used in moderation and good taste.
Make it your own. The most effective content always has a personal touch. A customized post sends a subtle but powerful message that you’re confident, competent, and professional.
