Missing the mark. fail your plan. This is particularly true when it comes to developing a social media strategy for your company and actually attracting new customers, clients, etc. You need a strategy if your company wants to make the most of social media marketing.
Here are 13 recommendations from industry professionals that have helped our thousands of clients succeed on social media!
Part 1 of a summer social media strategy guide: Keep Facebook Ads Fresh
Keep your ads up-to-date and pertinent. Keep in mind that advertising on social media is advertising. Commercial, print, and social media advertisements are everywhere. Update them on your social media platforms, please!
Customers want to see new things, so keep in mind the importance of variation and aim to incorporate it into your Facebook advertising campaign. Be original!
2. Use fresh Facebook ad formats.
Facebook Lead Ads—have you heard of them? Without requiring consumers to leave Facebook, lead advertising automatically captures client information. No matter where your advertisement is viewed, your clients will have a user-friendly experience thanks to the advertisement’s mobile-first design.
3. Properly track your Facebook ads
You can identify which efforts are effective by monitoring the results of your Facebook Ad campaigns. This is possible with Facebook conversion pixels, which track website leads in your Facebook advertising manager and let you create bespoke website audiences to reach customers more effectively with promotions and offers that are more specifically tailored to them.
4. Effectively utilize online video ads
Avoid posting YouTube videos directly to your Facebook profile, even though it might be tempting. Sharing in this method results in a post that is choppy and unprofessional. Post your videos directly to Facebook instead. They automatically start playing, look better, and get more clicks.
5. Regularly check for comments on advertisements
Without follow-up, an advertising effort is essentially pointless. The effectiveness of a commercial depends on how consistently it responds to inquiries about it. Although comments on ads may not show up on your timeline, they may contain questions about your goods and services. As part of your Facebook marketing strategy, review your advertising for leads and comments.
Online Reputation Management Tip #6: Get Favorable Comments on Important Websites Like Google
Consumers who study a company online before making a purchase utilize Google in 89% of cases. Customers will still see reviews of your company even if they aren’t actively looking for them because Google now displays reviews from throughout the web.
One of the most effective ways to maintain your internet reputation is to search for and view your company from the perspective of a potential client. Look for keywords that people might use to reach your company or group, and keep in mind that a good internet reputation is an insurance for whatever money you spend on marketing. A full-time career could involve administering, enhancing, and watching over your social networking and review sites.
7. Keep an eye on Yelp and take advantage of check-in offers to get more reviews.
Millions of people read reviews on Yelp. When Apple customers are looking for directions to your company or group, they will also see your Yelp rating because Apple even features Yelp ratings in its Maps program.
Another piece of advice is to use check-in promotions to make your positive Yelp reviews “stick.” With upgraded Yelp profiles, you can restrict competitor advertisements from appearing on your page and better promote your company.
8. Avoid trying to manipulate the system.
Negative reviews are never welcomed by a company, but getting more positive ones will “push” the poor ones to the bottom. However, the good ones must be trustworthy. In fact, providing gifts or any other form of payment in exchange for evaluations is prohibited. Another temptation would be to hire a business that provides this service or make up fictitious consumers to submit fictitious reviews. Yelp and other review sites are too savvy for such strategies, and your business will suffer as a result.
9. Regular Website Checking

Publish & Distribute on Social Media
10. Maintain Relevant, Up-to-Date, and Error-Free Content-Free
Keep it tidy. Avoid using jokes (that maybe only you find humorous) or religious stuff that could be seen as even the slightest bit divisive. Keep the information current and fresh as well. Include your most recent offers, promotions, and regular activities.
Keep in mind that visitors may assume you are out of business if your content is outdated. Verify the veracity of the information. Before posting, make sure to double-check your work for accuracy and presentation.
11. Commenting on Posts Generates Leads
The main focus of social media is engagement and communication. If you don’t check your posts for comments, how will you know if someone is inquiring about the automobile you’re selling or the course you’re offering? Comments can be leads. Avoid developing a reputation for being unreachable. You also don’t want any comments, positive or negative, to be disregarded! Recall to express gratitude to those who provide positive feedback and address the issues raised in the negative feedback by taking the topic offline right away.
12. Carefully promote posts
Post promotion is a fantastic strategy to increase revenue-generating content for your company. Although Facebook has an auto-promotion tool, it is not advised to use it as not all content will link back to your company.
Examples of posts that aren’t about business include: – “It’s reading month. Check out these wonderful books to enjoy during the summer!
Promoting these articles won’t bring customers back to your store. Content that includes links to other websites will, in fact, only help those websites. In the worst-case circumstances, these promoted postings can send visitors to a different website that has rival advertisements on it! Make sure to only share content that has a link back to your company.
13. Check to see if your images are clear and the right size.
The last piece of advice we have is to make sure your business’s photos and reels are clear, informative, and branded. Make sure to change the image’s size if you decide to use it on Facebook, TikTok, YouTube, or other social media platforms. Test the image frequently to see it from the perspective of a different client. Change it if it appears unprofessional. Additionally, bear in mind that everything you publish will have your profile image connected, so try to present yourself in the most professional and recognizable way for your company.
