What’s better than promoting your unique personality and specific special skill set? Doing it for FREE!!
Social Media platforms have exploded in the past 10 years. Every month brings new updates and features that make online networking more engaging and entertaining. Whether it’s promoting a house or getting your personal brand out to the world, social media can put not only the right audience but a specific audience in front of you.
It’s important to remember that the average person’s attention span lasts only seconds for any given post. In order to multiply this time it’s important to use fun interactive features specific to the platform, you are promoting on.
Here are 3 great examples!!
Polls: A poll is a great way to get people’s opinions. People love the opportunity to talk about themselves and it’s always fun to see how many people agree with you! You can also include a call to action anywhere on the post. Tie the question to what you want viewers to walk away with about yourself.
Quizzes: Let your audience know a little more about you and your industry. Instagram’s multiple choice question feature is a great way to get your viewers to stop and read what a post has to say. You have the option to leave 4 possible answer choices and be as creative as you want. Ask your viewers fun trivia questions to test their knowledge or ask another opinion question to see what kind of content they are more likely to watch in the future!
Contest: Contests are a great way to bring new people to your profile! With contests, you can also be as creative as you want. Engage your viewers by having them share your post on their story, tag their friends, and comment. Create easy guidelines/ rules for the contestants to follow and watch your number of views go up! (Don’t forget to offer a prize!!) It’s also important to remember that the point of a contest is to bring more awareness to your brand. Developing a relevant hashtag or a shareable graphic will help new viewers quickly understand what you have to offer.
