Everyone spends about 144 minutes every day on social media and messaging apps. Statistics show that by 2023, there will be about 4 billion people actively using social media, an increase of 2 billion from 2017. Yep, that’s incredible!
Think of the volume of content created every day by 4 billion consumers. About half the global population regularly participates in some form of social media content sharing. The Content Marketing Study found that 45 percent of marketers regularly write over 11 social media posts and more than five pieces of content each week.
The following are the top five social media tactics for the year 2023:
An objective was set, and it was successfully completed.
Setting your social media strategy’s goals and objectives is the first order of business. To achieve success with your social media strategy, it is important to first narrow your emphasis to the end result. In addition, if you know what you want to do, developing a strategy to get there should be much less difficult.
It can be difficult to measure the success of a social media campaign without first establishing clear objectives.
Create a name for your product
Millions of individuals check their feeds throughout the day, making social media the ideal platform for spreading brand awareness. If you want to increase your conversion rates, this is a must-have objective. Before pulling out their wallets, consumers need to be familiar with your company and its offerings. It’s a fantastic method of getting your message out and inspiring consumers to identify with your brand, product, or business.
The goal of every piece of content you create should be to get people talking to you. Your responsiveness and commitment will be greatly appreciated by both potential and actual consumers. Relationship building is a useful skill to have with any audience. Develop posts that will increase interaction on your social media platforms, since this is an excellent method to begin nurturing leads.
Accelerate the rate of conversion
Every action you do on social media should be seen as a chance to bring in more potential customers. Consider every social media post, whether it’s an image, paragraph, video, or carousel, as a chance to bring in new leads and forward the sales process. But at this point, brand requirements cannot be ignored.
Find out who you’re talking to
The majority of customers (56%) agree that brands should learn more about their needs in order to better serve them, as stated in The Marketo Engagement Gap research. Five-hundred-and-one percent of consumers in the Marketo survey agreed that brands share too much irrelevant content, which annoys them.
Delivering relevant information to the right audience at the right time is the crux of any successful social media strategy. Making material that appeals to everyone is an impossible task.
Choose the appropriate social media platforms
Aims have been established, and your intended audience has been identified. Now is the moment to choose which social networks are best suited to promote your brand. To attract the attention of your target demographic, tailor your messages and content for each individual social media platform.
If your target demographic is professional and business-minded, publishing a Video on LinkedIn probably wouldn’t be the best idea.
Make material that others will read and enjoy
See it as a person who frequently posts on Facebook and other social networks. Which would you rather watch: a 15-minute film with a static frame describing the new iPhone 13, or a 5-minute video reviewing the three most recent iPhone models, including live testing on each device and a summary of their key differences? Probably, you’d choose the second one.
That right there is what we call interesting and useful stuff. It ought to be enlightening and motivating, as well as amusing and informative. Make material that others can’t help but notice. Provide something fresh to your readers, or give them a new take on something they already know, but make sure it’s something they can relate to.
Put together a schedule for your social media posts.
In case you didn’t pay attention in the previous paragraph, I’ll summarise the significance of social media calendars for your future social media efforts now.
The development of the calendar itself can now commence. The first thing to do is plan ahead. The major and minor holidays (including Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Thanksgiving, etc.) should be circled. Then, consider upcoming events that could be significant for your business, such as International Coffee Day, your brand’s anniversary, employee anniversaries, and others.
Engage key opinion leaders
Attracting influencers to participate on social media is becoming a viable marketing tactic, as you may already know from reading about influencer marketing (you can skip the introduction). If you don’t have your seatbelt on, do so now!
Using social media users who have a big number of followers and are seen as experts in a given field to promote a product or service is called “influencer marketing” (beauty, lifestyle, sport & fitness, and so on).
We’ll start with the first myth: just because you partner with an influencer doesn’t mean your business will see a spike in revenue.
OK, that’s it for now. You should start using the most effective social media methods right away, since you now know what they are. When you read this, I’m picturing you diving headfirst into social media marketing; nevertheless, it’s important to remember to keep an eye on analytics as well. I hope your social media efforts go swimmingly!
