Growing your business on social media is not easy at all but since it has millions and millions of users, it’s defiantly worth while. I think if you’re not using social media you are either weird or have some serious issues. A recent study shows people spend more time on social media than with their actual partners!  

So for sure there is no better way to promote your business other than on social media platforms.

This doesn’t mean that you only market your business on social media. However social media should have a fair share of about 60% worth of marketing. You will need to start networking with the right people and you will see your business transform. So as with everything we summed this up in 5 effective ways to use social media to grow your business 

5 most effective way to grow your business on social platforms

Know your market

Understand who your market is and who you are trying to reach out to. This will not only save you plenty of time but also save you the disappointment in feeling not heard.

by identifying your market you will be able to target the right people for your business. Its like trying to sell cars to people without Driving licences.. (waste)

Learn who your customers are and find out their interests so you are able to tailor your approach to increase engagement. For example Nike or Adidas will tailor their adverts to suit and feature teenagers IF this product is for teenagers etc.. The key is to understand what product or service you are providing and who is it designed for. 

Quality content

If you want post average work your will get average results if not worse. Value your work and represent your brand well. Don’t cut corners and bombard your followers with junk. Nobody likes junk and people will only buy into you if you are actually helping them.  

Take the time and effort before creating a post. Choose Quality over Quantity all day! Social media is not a numbers game and it takes one good post to help your business go viral. You will start to see that your followers will become much more engaged and responsive.

Network

Be their friend! Build a strong relationship with other successful entrepreneurs just like yourself trying to also grow their business and learn from them. Organise a coffee or even join some online forums and ask how they did it. The best lesson for growth is to learn from peoples mistakes.

Maintain a positive healthy relationship with all your followers and stay connected by commenting and sharing their posts. They will eventually return you the favour which will help you quite a bit. 

Consistency

I have always said that consistency is the key to success. Post regularly and consistently. This way your followers will expect your post and will actively promote it to their friends and family.

You will come to know the best or busiest time your preferred social media has most users. Once you know this key information, you will aim to post during the hour with highest level of active users to encourage more post exposure and engagement. Do not make your accounts private as you will compromise the number of audience possible. 

STAY POSITIVE

Life is tough so don’t be miserable. Be a ball of energy and encourage others to be positive. People don’t like miserable people. Promote enthusiasm in everything you do and you will see the quality of your work transform. Be Happy and you will attract the same positive energy back!
