Post 2-3x Per Week

Use Custom Graphics
To set your business apart from your competitors, generic designs, clipart, and stock photos won’t help. You need custom graphics that tell your story, draw the eye, and communicate your key messages. Once you have a set of custom graphics, it’s important to learn how to leverage them in your media to create success for your brand.
Use Video 1-2x Per Month
If you’re scrolling through Facebook you’ll find that most of the content is video, and with video comes incredible conversion rates. Videos allow all types of users to access your information, it’s great for storytelling, and it’s easier for your audience to process than reading. Video is the most effective and powerful type of content for your brand, if you’re not using video, you’re missing out.
Comment, Like and Share
The more active your company’s account is, the more likely it is you’ll gain followers and exposure. Find other companies in your industry and comment, like, and share their material. When you post on your social media encourage your team to share your company posts and spread the word about your brand!
