If you want to get the most from your social media, you need to create outstanding profiles that get noticed for all the right reasons.

Here are some simple ways to boost  up your business social media profiles and create an impressive representation of your brand.

1. Post Original Content

How to Use Social Media to Get More Visitors

There’s nothing wrong with a share here and there but you will make much more improvement when you post unique  content to your social media accounts.

You want people to come to your page/ stream and see things they have not already seen elsewhere. 

You want to give valuable content that makes them want to come back again and also to share with their friends.

All you need to do is get creative. For instance, it wouldn’t take long to take a few FAQs and turn them into a quick (and highly useful) blog post.

If you do share, make sure you attribute properly and do not infringe upon the rights of others. This includes all types of content- articles, quotes, photos and more.

2. Optimize Your Profile

Marketers have a short time frame to impress audience. Photos do speak volumes on the social scale. Visual marketing creates a resonance that often will cut through the noise. Yet, it takes a brand or business persona to get through the social clutter.

First and foremost, the ultimate goal of your social media efforts is to generate leads, and you can’t accomplish that if you’re not being found online.

You can improve how your brand ranks by making sure your social profiles are optimized for maximum impact. This includes filling out all your contact information and using targeted keywords in as many places as possible. 

If you want your social media profile to stand out from the many others in the average social media user’s stream, then a professional photo might be just the way to do it.

Using a professional photo of a person who leads the company is often better and more personable than using your company logo- but again, it depends on the business, the social networking platform and your branding.

Images that resonate and compel your readers to take your call of action also help promote a sharing effect.

Images can tell a brand story, share news and even link to a creative promotion or giveaways which will invite participation. The key is to target these images towards an audience that cares.

A value proposition is a promise, and it is important to be clear and consistent about that promise across platforms.

The first thing one must do is understand and define the brand identity clearly on social media as well as within the organization.

Who are you? The answer to this question gives a unique identity to the brand, creating awareness and shaping the way you respond or share information. 

Identify how customers will make their choice between you and your competition. Determine their decision-making process.

Review all of the things they may consider. Think about how you are ranked as they progress through that process.

Determine how to communicate value as they are deliberating. You will either adjust your product or adjust the way you communicate with customers.

Please understand that the hundreds of networks available are not all worth your time. It’s important to know which medians appeal to which demographics and use them to overlap your target audience accordingly.
