4 tips for creating the best social media content


Social media marketing is crucial to any content management strategy.  Regardless of what industry your business is in, there are many ways to use social media to increase your brand reach; improve brand awareness; and communicate your brand message and identity.

With so many different social media channels and the oversaturation of the social media landscape with marketers, it’s difficult to make your company stand out against the competition.

Here are four tips for creating the best social media content that will help you make the most of your social media campaign.

1.    Plan your campaign: Good social media content starts with a good social media campaign. First, you need to determine the goals and objectives of using social media. Next, you need to decide what social media platforms will best benefit your business. Finally, you will need to create a schedule for your social media blasts. Here is a great overview of how to create a great social media plan (Hootsuite).

2.    Tailor your content to the market: Every social media platform has a different user base that will respond to different social media content campaigns. Do some research into your particular followers and the potential followers you can garner through a targeted campaign. Once you understand the platform and its utility, it is easy to create engaging content that will trigger action.

3.    Optimise your content for the medium: Depending on the social media platform you use, you will need to tailor the content. If you are using Instagram or Pinterest, make sure that you have high-quality, eye-catching photos. If you are using Twitter or Facebook, make sure you incorporate attention-grabbing copy. Finally, consider diversifying your content to include infographics; video; and both long and short form blogs. This way you can engage your readers in a more targeted way.

4.    Measure the effectiveness of your content: A much-overlooked aspect of creating the best social media campaign is measuring the effectiveness of your content. This will help you understand what your base responds to and what types of content you should focus on creating in the future.
