So, you’ve hired a Social Media Marketing Agency (like us) to help unlock your company’s online potential—well done! We know the industry in and out, and we’re ready to hit the ground running when it comes to managing your social media presence.
We’re here to help you reach your goals in any way possible, and now we’re going to let you in on a little secret: the more you help us, the more we can help you achieve those goals! Check out these nine tips on how to become your Social Media Manager’s favorite, and give your social media a boost in the process!
1) Send Photos
Humanizing your brand should always be a top priority, and posting photos taken on site is a great way to give your page a personal touch. Whether you send over a photo of a smiling service manager, or an Instagram-worthy #NoFilter sunset pic, your Social Media manager will cry tears of joy each and every time.
2) Send Videos
Video views across every platform are skyrocketing. If a photo taken on site is pure gold on social media—then a video taken on site is pure diamond.
3) Keep Us Informed
Nothing warms our hearts more than when a client sends over a list of current incentives, offers, or events out of the blue. You may know that your business is hosting a charity gala next week, but if you don’t tell your Social Media Manager, they won’t know and your audience won’t, either.
4) Document Events
Your charity gala may have been a huge success, but without photo evidence no one will ever know. Even a few photos snapped on a cell phone can go a long way!
5) Provide Clear and Consistent Feedback
If we’re always posting cat photos, and you hate cat photos—let us know! We always want our goals to be lined up with yours. By the same token, if there is something you want to see more of, we can do that too!
6) Be Responsive
It makes us sad if you don’t respond to our emails or answer our calls.
7) Share Ideas
If you’re sitting there one day and suddenly have a brilliant idea for a social media promotion—let us know! It’s the sudden sparks of inspiration which often develop into the most successful campaigns.
8) We’re Partners
Don’t think of us as just another vendor—think of us as your partner. Our number one goal is to drive the success of your brand, and trust between both parties is integral. Don’t be afraid to bounce ideas off of us. We love working hand-in-hand to come up with a social media plan catered specifically to your brand.
9) Smiles Come Standard
Your business is serious, but our relationship doesn’t always have to be. We love jokes, and we strongly believe in the power of a well-placed gif.
At the end of the day, we are here to help you reach your business goals. We are experts in the field and know how to use your content in the most strategic way possible. So let’s work together and watch your business multiply!
