Over the last 3 blog posts I have given you a combined 26 powerful tips on how to do social media marketing effectively. On today’s blog post, I will give you 12 more powerful strategies that will enable you to become a master at social media marketing. These strategies are the best I have found and if you implement them you will generate results.
Tip #1: The “What If” Game
With this strategy, you play a “what if” game in your posts. Sample posts could look like these: “What if you won the lottery tomorrow. What would you do?” Or “What if there was no social media starting tomorrow. What would you do?” These kinds of scenarios will get your audience to want to participate in the conversation, thus creating the kind of engagement you seek.
Tip #2: How I Messed Up
People like to follow someone who is real. Therefore, make sure you don’t reveal yourself to be some type of “mr. or ms. perfect.” Don’t be afraid to reveal some of your flaws or daily mistakes. Tell them how you messed up today in your daily routine. Also, tell them how you were able to resolve the situation.
Tip #3: Share Funny Things
All your posts shouldn’t be strictly about business. You need to add some form of entertainment into your social media marketing campaigns. Share short, funny jokes. Share memes or other funny stories. These will encourage people to share your posts, giving you more exposure as a result.
Tip #4: The Weird Things About Me
The next tip is to share weird things about you that few people know about. This is designed to allow you to create an instant connection with your followers. Turn it into a top 5 list of weird things about you that very few people know about. Invite your followers to share their own list.
Tip #5: Share Your Pet Peeves
Tell your audience what your pet peeves are. Maybe you can’t stand people who are late, or maybe you don’t like it when people are disorganized. Tell your audience to share theirs as well.
Tip #6: Create Lists Of Your Favorite Things
People seem to love lists. You can make a list of your top 10 movies, your top 5 favorite crime thriller books, or your top 10 music artists. It doesn’t matter what the list is about. Just come up with interesting ones and invite your followers to do the same.
Tip #7: Take Them Behind The Scenes
People like to know more about the people they are following. This is why celebrities are always taking people on a tour of their glamorous homes. You should do the same. Take people behind the scenes, showing what kind of environment you operate in.
Tip #8: Share Your Typical Day
Besides taking your followers behind the scenes, you also want to share what your typical day looks like. Take your listeners through a tour of your daily experiences in life. This, like the other methods listed above, is intended to create a connection.
Tip #9: What Would You Do?
Ask your audience what they would do in the event of certain scenarios taking place. Examples are: “What would you do if you had a magic wand that could give you any life you desired? Or “What would you do if you had the power to cure only one disease?” You get the point.
Tip #10: Show Them Your Past
Show people events and photos from your past. There was a time, for example, when I was severely overweight. In my case, I want to show old photos of what I looked like when I was overweight, leaving people impressed at the change I have made. What has dramatically changed for you over the last few years and how have you gotten better in life? Share this as often as possible.
Tip #11: Your Embarrassing Moments
Share a list of your most embarrassing moments in life. We all have these moments. Don’t be afraid to reveal them for they will make you more human. Challenge your followers to share theirs as well.
Tip #12: Your First Time
In order to show your audience that they can relate to you and your experiences, share the first time you did something in life and how the overall experience felt. Examples could be your first kiss, your first date, your first customer, or your first anything.
