Ways To Make Social Media Fun
My guess is when you created a personal Facebook, Twitter or any other social networking account it was to join your friends in all the social media fun. The thought of marketing yourself or your business was not your main concern. You had one goal: socialize and have fun with your friends in the newest form available.
Where You Turned From Fun To Business
After realizing the potential to reach clients for any business you were involved in you quickly shaped up your act, began carefully editing any post you created and eventually transformed your wall into a digital sales pitch. Before long you could see your page views and interaction begin to shrink when it came to your updates about your business.
Why Social Media Fun Is Still Possible
Don’t worry, the fight for interaction on your social media accounts is not over. Once you understand that social media users are flooded with sales pitches every day you will realize you are just another company sending them offers for free or discounted products. Too much sales pitch-type content will likely trigger users to shrug you off until you eventually disappear. However, you can create social media fun with only a few tweaks.
Hook Them Once Then Keep Them Coming Back
One way to spur social media fun is to join a trending conversation or topic. See a local topic getting some traction early in the day? Like/Favorite, Comment and Share/Retweet so people who join the party late can see you are a part of it.
Another strategy to create social media fun is to stop talking about your business, or business in general, for a few days. Post a funny or inspirational quote, make fun of your industry’s quirks or go completely random with a funny video or picture. Who knows, your post could end up getting viral traction by the end of the day.
How To Make Social Media Fun For You
Try thinking like the people you are targeting with each post. Does your picture immediately catch your eye? Are you being quick and to the point in your wording? Small changes have a major impact on your social media feed and can help you bring your business accounts more traffic and, ultimately, more customers.
