Take a look at these 5 fun social media marketing ideas that will help you spice up your online presence!
1) Hold a Contest or Giveaway
Everyone loves free stuff! Contests and giveaways are a great way to engage with your audience while increasing awareness for your brand. There have been many reports that Instagram accounts who run contests and giveaways on a regular basis will grow about 70% faster compared to other accounts who don’t. Not only does this create an opportunity for new content for already existing followers but it also creates an awesome opportunity to increase awareness with new audiences.
2) Create “Tag a Friend” Content
Posting content that you think your audiences friends will enjoy helps build brand awareness. This allows followers to get a feel for the business & brand without feeling overwhelmed. Furthermore, friends are more likely to check out a brand that their friends recommend rather than them discovering it themselves. Additionally, the more people that are tagged in your “Tag a frend” post, the more engagement the post will get!
3) Post Behind the Scenes Videos and Pictures
This is a more intimate social media marketing idea. It helps your audience witness behind the scenes shots of your company while giving them a better understanding about your processes and culture. For example, an idea of behind the scenes content that you can post is content in regards to the entire process of fulfilling a product or service. This gives your followers a chance to see what the company looks like from the inside and reassures them that their work is in good hands.
4) Use more Emojis on Social Media
According to Hootsuite, using emojis in tweets can increase engagement by 25.4% and using them on Facebook can increase engagement by 57%. However, if you plan to use emojis make sure you are using relevant emojis that go with your content. For example, adding emojis makes your content more creative and catches peoples attention.
5) Create Polls On Social media
Polls are another great way to increase engagement and learn more about your audience. You can create polls on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and this is a great way to find out your audience’s opinion. From this information, you can modify your strategy and create content that your audience wants to see! Check out this recent poll we ran for DigiHype Media on Twitter!
