Bonus social media writing tips
These tools are amazing for upping your social media game, but remember that any great post begins between you and the keyboard. Here’s some tips to help you start with great material that will bring in the customers.
Keep on top of trends
Keep an eye on what’s trending in your industry. Do you sell custom jewelry, and are pieces made with dollhouse pieces trending? Get in on the conversation, and you can gain new fans, followers and customers with ease.
Check, check, and double check
Google the phrase ‘social media faux pas’ and you’ll find thousands of results that will probably make you never want to touch your Twitter account again. However, 99.99% of issues can be avoided by reading your posts over before posting them. Remember, nothing written in anger should ever be published, and comments written down often don’t come across the same way as they would when said aloud.
Have someone else read your posts
The best and easiest way to spot errors in your writing is to have someone read it aloud. Listening to your writing, you can hear problems easily and fix them before publication. It also helps you check the tone of your posts before they go live, helping nip any potential issues in the bud.
Check your images and hyperlinks
When you’re at your busiest, you’ll be working across multiple posts at once, pasting in links and images as you go. However, before that post goes live, make sure your images are relevant to your post, and check that the links go where you want to send your customers. Nothing’s worse than receiving a whole slew of messages from people who’ve found that your link goes nowhere.
These tools and tips are great guidelines to getting started with social media, but only you know what really makes your business tick. Who are your customers, and what do they want from you? Carve out your own niche online by creating relatable, engaging content that your readers will want to share, and you’ll see success in no time.
Good writing is a huge part of successful social media campaigns, so it’s vital you get it right. Use these tools to improve your writing, and you’ll see that anyone can become a master writer with a little bit of time, effort and hard work.
