How to market yourself on social media

 

1. Use The Right Platforms

There’s plenty of platforms to choose from, but it’s important to select the right ones for your audience. If you’re serious about promoting yourself on social media, you should build a presence on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, while considering media-based platforms such as YouTube and SoundCloud.

 

2. Set Out Your Goals

If you don’t know where you’re going, you’re going nowhere. Before figuring out how to promote yourself on social media, it’s important to sit down and lay out your overall goals: what do you want from your social media campaign, and how are you going to achieve it?

 

3. Research & Prepare         

You might be full of social media promotion ideas, but if you don’t undertake any research or make any preparation, your campaign is unlikely to be effective. Do some research into your target audience, find out what kind of content is likely to generate engagement, and prepare accordingly.

 

4. Use a Content Calendar

The content calendar is one of the most important tools in effective social media promotion. A calendar allows you to keep track of events relevant to your promotional goals, while creating a detailed schedule that ensures you’re never short of content when you need it most.

 

5. Share Quality Content

This is a fundamental rule for anyone looking to maximise their social media potential. If your content isn’t top-class, engaging and relevant to your audience, it doesn’t matter how much effort you put into promotion: your audience won’t respond and you won’t achieve your goals.

 

6. Use Technical Tools

Though professional social media agencies have access to the most effective technical tools used in social media promotion, there are many that casual users can take advantage of. Google Trends is a great place to start, offering free and date-specific metrics on search volume for any term entered.

 

How we approach social media promotion

CREATIVITY

A key part of our strategy is creativity. Social media promotion ideas that are creative, original and out-of-the-box are more likely to capture the attention of your audience, ensuring that your account becomes memorable and popular. We craft creative content that includes engaging editorial, imaginative imagery and viral video, ensuring that it’s relevant to our client’s audience and aesthetic.

PREPARATION

Promoting your account, growing your following and boosting social media presence doesn’t happen overnight. Successful social media strategy takes careful and considered preparation that includes research, planning and expert knowledge. Every campaign we take on is meticulously prepared through detailed action plans before the very first post even goes live.

ANALYTICS

We use a range of technical tools to measure and analyse your social performance. Prior to the start of our work together, this helps us prepare, but most importantly it allows us to adapt our approach as we progress through the campaign. By analysing metrics such as engagement, reach, impressions and click rate, we can gain detailed insights into what works and what doesn’t.
