If you’re a small business owner chances are you don’t have a very large social media marketing budget but you also realise that putting your brand on the digital map isn’t an option anymore. It is a necessity. How can you go about doing this without burning a massive hole in your pocket? We’re here to tell you that it is possible and here are few tips to get you started:1) Be prepared Create a bank of content in advance. Do your research and create content that could last you, for say, the entire month. That way, you don’t have to scramble around at the very last trying to create content. Simply pick a post from the bank that you have created and post as and when required. 2) Schedule Chances are, as a small business you’re also strapped for time. Scheduling your posts beforehand will save you so much time. Facebook has a scheduling option that lets you schedule your posts for even up to a month. 3) Think of your target market When talking about social media marketing, there is no one size fits all policy. You need to identify your target market before you start working on strategy and creating content. Your target market will determine the course of communication that your brand will take going forth.4) Engage with your customers Aside from regular posts, make use of features like Facebook Live and Instagram Stories to give your audience a day-to-day update of what your brand is up to. Do behind-the-scene videos and share stories and pictures of your employees. Let your content reflect emotions and humour, those are two things that almost always work. 5) Sign up for the digital marketing course at Bootcamp These tips were but a small glimpse into the vast world of social media marketing.
