In today’s socially driven consumer-base, Social Media and content marketing have become a vital point of marketing. Most business owners have heard “you HAVE to be on social media.” While that’s true, the key to success in social media isn’t only that you use it — it’s how you use it.
As a small business owner, you may struggle to find the time to manage your social media marketing as well as think of amazing ideas for your social media content; such as what to post and when to post it.
We are sharing a series of engaging post ideas to help you get a jump-start on post creation for social media to engage your fans and followers - and ultimately, boost sales and profits.
These ideas will ignite your creativity and ultimately increase your followers, build your credibility, keep existing customers coming back, and gain new customers.
Content Idea #20: Reward Your Fans & Followers.
Speaking of giveaways, give a small token of appreciation to your superfans and followers. Take notice of the customers who are actively engaged with your pages and show them that you appreciate them. For example, a San Antonio, Texas spa offered 500 points in their free loyalty program for checking in at the spa on Facebook. By appearing on customers’ Facebook walls, this promotion was a great way to create exposure for their brand while also promoting their loyalty program. Win-win.
Take Action: Write a post now offering a giveaway for customers that "like" or "share" your post or simply just reward the ones who are actively engaged with your pages to show appreciation.
