5 Social Media Marketing Tips To Boost Your Business

Over the past couple weeks at my new job as Director of Social Marketing at Maker Maven and Literacy for Texas I have learned so much! I wanted to share five of my favorite takeaways that I have learned so far.

1. Push Your Handles

Sharing your handles is great for boosting followers! You should include your handle anywhere and anyhow you can. Yes, it may seem a bit overt at times but the pushing of your handles will gain you serious followers. 

2. Use Weekly Hashtag Themes

I absolutely love using hashtag themes for the week. It helps to build social media following by showing your active in the community. You may be pleasantly surprised by the loyal audience that social media traditions have. 

3. Hold Contests And Giveaways

Who doesn't love free stuff? Bring some friendly competition to your followers by offering fun contests and giveaways. 

4. Pin Your Own Images

I absolutely love Pinterest and think that it is sometimes underestimated. Posting things such as templates, infographics, and other awesome content on Pinterest is great to reach a large audience. Make sure to link pictures to your webpages for some serious traffic.

5. Know What Your Competitors Are Posting

As with everything be sure to know what your competitors are doing. Do things such as look for patterns and test similar materials to see what works best for your business.
