Nine ways to vamp up your social media

Feeling a bit lost or dull with your social media marketing efforts? Don't worry! Here are nine ways to get up, dust yourself off and get back in the social media game!


  1. Create a social media voice that people want to hang out with. Make your brand sound like your customers, or more importantly, relatable to your customers.
  2. Make yourself and your team visible. Give a face to the name!
  3. Know your customers and what their day-to-day lives are about.
  4. Be an active listener. If you don't know your customer, get to know them and then get to know them again in a few months. Things are always changing and we have to keep up!
  5. Avoid too much branding or talking about yourself too much. 
  6. Instead, be more conversational and invite others to contribute to your story.
  7. Give credit where credit is due. This not only shows you are a respectable brand, but also gives you a chance to network with others.
  8. Lay off the #hashtags. #No one #wants to read a #sentence with too many #breaks! Be relevant in what you tag to get maximum results.
  9. Remember that numbers fans and followers are overrated metrics. I said numbers. Fans and followers matter when they interact with our brand. Just having them doesn't mean anything if they aren't being engaged.
Bonus idea: Have fun with it! What exists online is just a reflection of the real world. So just be yourself!
