Social Media Ideas To Learn By Heart

Almost everyone is on social media – it has become a space that’s more than just connecting (reconnecting) or making friends,  social media has become a wide cork board-filled events, business ads, leasing and job hunting. Social media has become a venue for budding artists, their pages and account serve as portfolio given creating customized website can be time consuming.

Sure, there are customizable site like wix that has templated background and menu preset to choose from but the point in this day and age is to be relevant, in a social media space, whether it’s twitter on Instagram , it allows you to develop your audience and at the same time get the knack of what sells and what works.

But what does it take for one to thrive and succeed? The only answer I can think of is to stay relevant – be updated with trends and they’re quite complex and elaborate at first but you’ll get the hang of it so we’ll break down ideas to learn by heart to kick off your road to success

Conceptualize Your Posting plan

What posts will you come up with? Photos, livestream, videos, or GIFs. Creating a set of content posts like updates with  scheduled social media activities at a certain time period helps a lot to build to reach your potential market.

Create a Brand Aesthetic

It helps your users get an idea what kind of social media page you’re running. For example, a budding photographer ideally creates a specific tone or specialized service, like say you work on event photography,

Reach out To Your friends and with Established pages

Staring from the ground can be a huge challenge and that’s where your friends come from, asking out one or two to share your page helps boost follower, and combined with teaming up with similar brands on social media definitely helps, an endorsement from the latter legitimizes your work.

Influencers

If done right, these people could have twice the charm as you are especially the number of followers help, they’re constant social media activity gives your brand a presence and exposure for your page to be known – influencers in a way, are manifestation of your brand and gives an experience to their followers why your brand is something to be sought out.

Engage With Your Customers

Schedule a live video on Instagram and Twitter, it helps you interact with customers real time and gives you a full picture of the trends – going onto research helps but hearing and knowing what your customers and target audience give you a full picture of building your content, it helps you understand and know their perspective, and looking on this approach would definitely help you to come up with creative ways rather than beholden on what the other sites say because they can only produce so much information, and another bonus on engaging your contacts is that it allow you to think outside of the box and internalize what’s on their thought – needless to say, it’s a combined effort of search, customer engagement and a little amount of empirical research. Having a community presence doesn’t only benefit your end, but also consider your page as a way to connect other people.

Use the best Hashtags

It started on twitter, and it became a phenomenon and later on influenced other accounts to incorporate hashtags, as cheesy as they sound especially on wedding ones, it helps you track down which hashtags work, what people frequently use, this also tracks down other users who use the same hashtag and allow you to adapt.

Grammar and Punctuation Matters

This may sound condescending on the importance of grammar, having a uniformed wording phrase along with basic subject verb agreement becomes a measure of your ability to communicate concisely, clearly to your customers, some may be challenging . On the basis of subject-verb agreement, gives a coherent thought of the messages you construct, it allows user to have a complete train of thought of what you’re talking about, to make sense of what you’re saying.

SVA on grammar works like bread and butter, it makes the thought in the sentence consistent, unified and it gives a basic rundown of a series of thoughts put in the text in an organized matter.

Aside from grammar, punctuation goes hand in hand with grammar in a sense that we use apostrophes in common words like its and it’s, the former describing the subject, and second  describing the subject itself, oftentimes spellcheck are a common issue which is inevitable.

5 Social Media Myths To Consider

Social Media has been a staple in in our lives in this day and age: we use mainly to communicate, share our activities, sometimes we keep tabs on posting jobs since most employers have been scouting for potential employees suitable for the job.

Business outfits and budding entrepreneurs has used social media as a home to promote and sell their product and thanks to messaging features, it has become accessible to communicate, social media has becomes closer and for that notion is a curse, and myths that create assumptions and entitlement of closeness, the idea of people would follow you just because we amazing content or something witty to say.

Myth in Roland Barthes terms are a set of commonly assumptions draws from societal and cultural context, and in social media terms, having an account validates one’s existence and that’s why people within that space are consistently active and unfortunately, it takes one to succeed for social media.

Here’s 5 myths you want to consider:

 

  1. Having the need to create a lot of social media accounts

The agony of having multiple social media accounts is the pressure of creating to follow people and to stay relevant, you’ll be wasting a lot of time keeping tabs on others’ activities, and honestly not everyone spends a lot of time on social media as much as you do – others may have the same sentiment as yours, some keep these accounts for job and career reasons, it may be true because it happens their co-workers and colleagues communicate for status report of their work.

The solution to this dilemma is to take around 3 accounts that people commonly use.

  1. A Huge Amount of Followers is equal to Success

Virtually, you can have thousands of friends to invite to like your page or follow you, numbers should project that you are successful and relevant and from a business or career perspective, it’s the demographic or target audience that needs to be focus in order to meet your goals and fully actualize your endeavors.

  1. Big Results will come out in 3-6 months

3 to 6 months has become a running gag these days, projected expectations are at high if one forget its demographic by setting goals and expectations. You have to ask, who is your audience? From there, you can definitely have an idea what kind of material you’ll be posting, your general followers come and go but your target audience will remain and anticipate your material that you’ll be posting.

  1. You Got The Right Demographic/Target Audience!

Congratulations! You’ve hit the jackpot but not close enough. Upon realizing your target audience, you have an edge but here’s the catch: trends change, fads change and technology changes every now and they, say in a feature of creating a content for social media requires understanding its updates, knowing what’s in or  new. Needless to say, it’s a combination of research and adapting to technology which you should Utilize.

  1. Feedback

There are thousands of comments that sprung from your followers, it’s hard the fact you have to follow each of them and sometimes we to ignore them and just move along. Listening to your followers may do you a favor on using those words as an idea of things to consider on creating content and who knows, their output would definitely motivate you do more and succeed! Customer is always right is the motto that is brutally honest.

To close the discussion regarding myths, social media’s ability to connect with the world is we forgot and we must make the most to communicate with the tools in disposal. We must not rely and depend, be beholden on set-ups, expectations, templates that shackle us and struck with default workload but instead, work on goals that work and engage people.
