Keeping up with the ever-changing social media world is challenging. Automation and disconnection are plaguing the SMM world with the rise in social media schedulers and other automated tools. If you are worried about maintaining your following and growing your brand, fear not! SMM is still a great way to do that.
Here are some facts about social media management to put you in a good mood.
Putting the “Social” in Social Media
While posting on social media is easier than ever, engaging with your following is still priority number one. We get it, you are a busy person. You do not have time to answer DMs, reply to comments and share posts. That is where an effective social media manager comes in. Your SMM should be doing more than just posting. Your SSM should manage your online community, too.
An essential part of being an SMM is engaging with followers. They “like” people’s posts, share them, give colleagues a shout out and reply to comments. Engaging shows your followers that you care about their opinions and want to connect with them. The more you engage, the bigger your online community will be.
Research and Relevancy
The social media world is changing constantly. You do not want to seem out of touch or irrelevant online. Who has the time to research new social media trends and features? Your SMM, of course! Good SMMs work tirelessly to stay on top of the latest app features, trends, hashtags and memes.
Showing your followers that you are staying relevant and willing to try new ideas is vital. Potential clients will see that you are not afraid to take risks. Also, staying relevant on social media helps expand your scope. Take Instagram Reels for example. Instagram now has a special tab just for watching reels, in addition to them showing up in your main feed. The more reels you like, the more show up in your feed.
Knowing What’s Next
On top of staying up to date with current trends, your SMM should also know what is coming. With their knowledge and insight into social media, they should be able to predict what to focus on next.
Planning ahead and strategizing for the future is critical for maintaining your brand relevance. While most SMMs use schedulers, knowing what comes next will allow them to adapt and change posting strategies if necessary.
