13 Jul Take Branding into your Own Hands + Social Media Strategy for the New Normal
Staying up to date on Social Media is Overwhelming.
This is coming from someone who up until COVID-19, had so much content to post, so much to share, etc. I am active on Instagram and Facebook, but I was falling behind on posting, and didn’t know where to pick back up. When events stopped, I was tired of using the same photos and basic boring graphics over and over. I also didn’t want to do multiple photo shoots to create content. Even if I did, what would I even take pictures of?! SO MUCH WORK. Then I stumbled upon one of those “Work smarter, not harder” situations. I am talking about something called Pixistock. I have been using it for a few months now and had to share with you guys how much easier this has made my life and kept my business showing up online, better than ever before.
Where do you Start?
There is a lot more to creating a successful online brand than just posting a picture whenever you feel like it. It is more important now than ever before, especially if your business is on hold, or being affected. Don’t lose the interest of your clients and customers! Having a free Canva account also isn’t enough.
- Creating captivating content all the time is hard. Having tools and outlines done for you to customize to fit your social media is so easy.
- Have an Eye-Catching Aesthetic – This isn’t done on a whim. It takes planning. Again, thinking about it is hard, but having templates and access to thousands of images is so easy! Look at my instagram for an example of what this means: Sarah’s Instagram
- Captions – what do you write to capture the audience? Are you tired of trying to come up with what to say everyday?
- Hashtags – what will help your brand stand out? How do you even begin to choose!?
- Scheduling – How often do you post? We know consistency is the KEY to creating a successful online image and standing up to that tricky, every changing algorithm.
You shouldn’t have to be doing coming up with all of this on your own, and you shouldn’t have to hire a social media team to do this for you when you don’t have a budget for it. I found all these resources in one place! It is not only easy to do yourself, but it doesn’t cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars a month.
Challenging Times Call for Changing Strategies
- Remember to show the human side to your brand.
- Focus on your client. What do they need from you and how can you help, not the other way around.
- Add value to whoever is looking at your profile. Throw in tips, tricks, shortcuts, etc.
- Customize everything to be cohesive and very clear on what you do.
