There are several brands out there who began by posting content on social media platforms such as TikTok, LinkedIn, Instagram, and more. Let’s dive into some highly effective ways to create a solid social media post to engage traffic.
1. Keyword Research
When it comes to creating good content on social media, keyword research is one of the most crucial aspects of your success. Essentially, keyword research consists of researching specific words and phrases to see how much traffic they get online. You will see how many individuals search these words. If you are just starting out in your business, it is a great idea to lose ultra specific words with less traffic. This is because keywords with a lot of traffic also means that they have a lot of competition. As your company begins to grow, you can consider using keywords with higher traffic. Base the titles, descriptions, and content around these keywords.
2. Adding Value
If you are creating a social media presence for your business, then it is extremely important to constantly be adding value to your viewers. There are several ways to convey your value to your audience. First and foremost, you need to have an eye-catching title and description to your posts. At the same time, the content of the post has to add value. This will welcome new viewers, as well as keeping existing subscribers coming back for more. If you provide value through your content and posts, your audience will be far more likely to purchase your products and services.
3. Do Your Research
There are several types of research you can conduct to make you social media posts the best they can be. One is to make sure that you do as much research on your market as possible and determine what type of content will provide the most value to your audience. At the same time, researching other influencers in your market is a great way to make good content. Do not copy anything from influencers, but learn from their work and incorporate similar ideas into your content. Look at what posts increase the most traffic. If you are creating a post to market a specific person or business, then conduct thorough research to make sure that you know as much as you can about them.
4. Call To Actions
Call to actions are a crucial part when it comes to posting content on social media. A call to action is a link that directs your audience to your website and products. You can also include calls to actions to other social media pages and/or videos. Your call to action should provide value to your audience and feel free to include more than one. If you are posting a video, then you should talk about the call to action during it and instruct your viewers to click the links.
5. Effective Images/Videos
Images and videos are one of the most important parts of any social media post. If you are creating an image to post, you need to make sure that it is engaging and eye-catching to your viewers. Incorporate colorful images, and if you are an influencer you should showcase your face to your audience. If you are posting videos, then they should be entertaining, creative, and add value. While creativity is very important, it is far more important that your video adds value to your audience to keep them coming back for more.
