Whether you are a start-up or established small business owner, social media can be an enormous asset to your business. However it can be time consuming and overwhelming thinking what, where, why and when to post.

These 5 quick social media tips will help optimise your time and your business message.

1) Identify your goals

What are your marketing goals for your business and how can social media help you achieve them? These goals will help you to communicate the right messages to the right audience using the right platform.

2) Choose the right platform(s) 

Don’t feel obligated to have a presence on every platform. Focus your time and efforts on creating good content most relevant to your target audience and engaging with them.

3) Think before you post

Before posting, ask yourself:

  • Is this helpful?
  •  What value am I adding?
  • Is this relevant to my customers’ needs?

4) Plan your content

Being consistent with how often you post will help your followers build and maintain trust in your brand. Using a scheduling app or timetable will help you to post varied and valuable content throughout the month.

5) Build relationships

One of the greatest strengths of social media is it enables you to engage in a dialogue with your audience. This enables you to keep adding value through your expertise and build a strong following.

Keeping these five quick social media tips in mind will help you deliver a clear and consistent business message to your audience and boost your business.
