Five Content Forms that must be a Part of Your Social Media Marketing Strategy
Have you found yourself in a flux when it comes to chalking out a well-organised yet all-encompassing social media strategy that keeps you connected with your target audience?
In the present day, when millions of people are thriving on social media, Content is King! Good, enriching, entertaining and exciting content has the single handed ability to boost your organic reach by its thumb-stopping power. Here are the top five kinds of content that must be a part of your social media strategy –
Posts (Written or Pictures)
Medium: Facebook, Instagram
While earlier, Facebook only allowed you to share pictures, videos and write something, today we have the provision to check-in, share links, share our feelings and even sell something through a post. Sharing relevant content that your target audience will like to read regularly or creating attractive yet informational posts on Instagram is the key to maintaining a consistent social media presence.
The perfect way to create a large impact with fewer words is through tweets. With the use of only 280 characters, you can start a casual conversation with your target audience, tease them about upcoming products, services or events and even connect with your contemporaries to keep up with your competition.
