Share Video

There’s no hiding the fact that we like to watch rather than read when we are on social media. A change to human nature so make sure you gear your social media content accordingly. Create some video of your own. This could be Facebook lives, pre-recorded interviews with yourself, a guest or one of your employees or create videos around what you do –  a sneak peak of a project you are working on or a how-to video. Ask your social followers about what information would be most valuable to them.

Tips:

  • Keep your videos under 3 minutes in length for maximum viewership – we have small attention spans!
  • Tell a story in your videos and explain why it’s important to them or why they need it.

Schedule Your Content

Take a look at your audience analytics and determine the best time they want to view your content. Schedule your content according to when you are best to catch them with a few extra minutes. Use a scheduler like Buffer or Hootsuite, if you want to make sure you reach them when you can’t post ie. You are in a meeting or it’s in the evening when you aren’t working.

Tag People You Mention

Whether you have a guest on your blog or you were with other business owners at an event – why not tag them and connect with them with their social accounts. Not only does this go out to your followers but also theirs’s as well which will increase your reach. People naturally want to be recognized, give them a little credit and that warm and fuzzy feeling.

Share Other’s Content

You’re the expert in your business, and your following will trust the content you share whether you write it or not. If you find content that would be valuable and resonate with your followers but you didn’t write – there’s nothing wrong with that! Share and inform.

Tips:

  • It’s okay to share other expert’s content but be aware of how often you share content that isn’t yours.
  • There are many recommendations out there with regards to the ratio of curated content vs. your own content. At the very least consider the 90-10 rule – 90% your content and 10% curated content from someone else.

Evoke Emotion In Your Headlines

You want people to read your posts, right? The way your headlines are worded are going to be the difference between someone reading them and just passing them by. Providing them with value and what the desired result they need will surely increase shares and potential click through if you linked to a blog.
