5 Things You Can Do Right Now to Boost Your Social Media Platforms

April 10, 2020

“There are just not enough hours in the day.” Have you ever said that? Yeah, we have too.

We know you wear ALL the hats as a business owner & social media often gets pushed to the back burner. But we’ve got your back. Here’s a checklist of five quick things you can do right now to boost your social platforms:

  1. Make sure your social media handle is easy to find & search. Avoid underscores & long strings of random letters + numbers. Your handle should connect back to your business name. Example: Ours is @HumbleDesignShop on both Facebook & Instagram.
  2. Make sure your profile images are the same (or similar) across all of your social media platforms.
  3. Put links to your social platforms on your website & your marketing pieces.
  4. Connect with a few business people in your sphere of influence who are doing what you’re doing and establish a relationship. That could mean engaging on their content using your business profile or it might mean DM’ing them. These key connections can lead to opportunities for co-promotion! Think partnership — not competition.
  5. Follow people & businesses that inspire you & glean inspiration from them, even if they’re in a different industry. Look for areas where they are killing it on social media & think of ways to apply those same practices in your own business.

Implement these five things and you’ll see a boost in both your following and your bottom line.
