Keep it original and customized
As much as all the digital innovations have made it easier to speak, it’s the emotion that we miss out on. By the term ‘humanize your brand’ we mean, transcend the glass tops of those digital screens. Show your audience what goes in your office, introduce them to your employees, and show the humans behind your brand. Remember that brand stories aren’t ads and sales pitches; they assist the audience to hook up with your brand. Your stories tell them what you represent; they display your culture also as your values. For instance, share your plans for Friday, share the fun team-building activities you’ve got, let employees take over the social media for once, and hook up with the audience.
Don’t overcrowd your graphics with text
Graphics are a great way to attract and keep a hold of customers. People tend to trust and attract more to graphics more than text and that is why filling text with graphics with text is a big no-no. Using illustrations, lines, and clip arts to explain your motive for the post. Adverts with graphics have a 20% more chance of engagement than text-heavy posts. Keep it simple and balanced!
Social media is not a burden, Have fun!
Social media is the place to tell people your story and stories are incomplete without emotion. People like a personal touch, not the graphically magnanimous posts which are lacking the ability to emote, anything which they relate and connect to. It’s a platform you require to tell why your product is a necessity in the life of the audience, Use it wisely.
