5 Ways to Make Your Social Media Posts Stand out on Facebook
Posted by Meredith B on 06 July 2020 03:39 pm

How do you reach your target audience on an ever changing social media platform? How do you get the results you’re aiming for? Here are 5 ways to make your social media posts stand out on Facebook.

Get To the Point

People don’t want to read a blog when they’re looking at your business Facebook page, that’s what a blog is for. So keep Facebook posts short and sweet. Think of social media as a social event, small talk. Make a point, draw them in, and get out! Maximum engagement for a social media post on a Facebook page happens at 40 characters according to Buffer.

Use Images

It doesn’t matter how great you are with words, your posts NEED to have an image. Posts are visually appealing. You don’t even need to be a professional photographer. Just be relatable. Studies have shown that posts with images get more interaction.

Tag Brands

Using social tagging will bring others in. If you tag your supplier, or a brand you use or love, it allows you to reach them and their followers! This grows your organic reach!

Ask for Likes

Just like you ask for reviews, ask for likes. When someone interacts with your post and they don’t currently “like” your page, ask them to. If you click on the link next to the list of reactions to your post, it will bring up a list of everyone who reacted to your post, and include whether they like your page already. If they don’t; simply hit invite. This is a great way to invite followers of your product or brand who might not be aware that they’re not already following your page.

Begin a Conversation

When you talk to your followers, it builds a sense of community. Pose a question, encourage them to interact with you. This will increase engagement, and make posts more successful.

We have always said it’s important to have a presence on social media, but these days, with more people being at home, it’s even more important. If you need help starting your page, or just want to increase your social media presence, give Tim a call at 727-386-7216 X 107.

Flash is in the Past!
Posted by WDS on 24 March 2020 09:47 am

In the past, many older websites relied on a program from Adobe called Flash Player to run graphics. Often it was used in homepage pictures, sliders, and all over. Website owners could rely on Flash Player to display information on their business website. But no longer!

Flash Player

As of the start of 2020, Google Chrome has joined the ranks of browsers which no longer support Flash Player. In the cutting-edge world of web design, technology changes and best practices are updated. With newer web development platforms like WordPress, the need for our beloved Flash Player fizzled out. Flash held on as long as it could, but it’s time to remember it fondly and move towards the future, or in this case, the present.

So, what does it mean if you’re still rocking Flash Player on your website? Let’s say you’re using Flash Player as an image or video slider on your homepage like most folks. Now, when someone visits your website, instead of that slider, they’ll see a whole lot of nothing! Is your logo in that Flash file? Do you have important sales information in there? Well, your website visitor is none the wiser. Time to bring your website into this century, or decade at least.

Contact us today to get a free quote on updating your website. A new website will not only get your site up to date, it will help your customers move more easily around your site, and be able to contact you more readily. Not to mention the search engine gains you can receive.

Are you experiencing financial struggles during the era of COVID-19? We’re here for you at Webtivity Marketing & Design. Ask us about how to get monthly terms, and how you can pay off your new website in easy, low, monthly payments.

Activate Your Customer with Content
Posted by Meredith on 28 February 2020 11:33 am

What does it mean to activate your customer? It means getting them motivated to make the next step in the customer life cycle. This could mean visiting your website, clicking on an ad, sharing a social media post, and hopefully making a purchase. To activate your customer with content, you need to make them feel attached to your brand, your business. How do you do that?

Activate Your Customer

  1. Create content that resonates with your customer. To do that you need to know who you’re trying to reach.
  2. Know what your customers biggest problems are, and be the one that can solve them.
  3. Know not only your customers biggest fears but also their biggest dreams! Let them know you can conquer them both!
  4. Show your customers that you’re different from the competition. Show them what makes your business unique.
  5. Why would choosing your company create a new opportunity for them?
  6. What makes you the best option? Are you the most efficient? Are you the fastest? Are you the least expensive in town? Are you the closest to them?
  7. Give them proof of what makes YOU the best option. Keep showing them why.

In the digital age, there are so many opportunities to activate your customers with content. Content can be created through blogging, social media, videos, pictures. And these are ways to activate your customers:

  1. How to videos
  2. Tips and tricks
  3. Contests
  4. Ads
  5. Newsletters
  6. EBooks
  7. Infographics
  8. Case Studies

Each customer is different, and each one has a problem that needs solving. By creating all of this content, not only are you activating your customer, but creative content resonates with consumers, so implementing these tips should improve your marketing strategy and help to out perform your competitors.

Your company’s branding and marketing strategies must span consistently across all media channels—and be designed to drive traffic back to your website. Contact Webtivity Marketing & Design to schedule a consultation.

Promote Your Small Business on Facebook
Posted by Meredith on 21 February 2020 11:13 am

If you have a small business and it’s not on Facebook, then you’re missing out on a bunch of FREE advertising. Yes, free advertising! Of course, like Google, there are opportunities for paid advertising on Facebook. But every small business should be on social media, especially on Facebook. The most common age of Facebook users is between the ages of 25-29 at 29.7% of users according to Zephoria. This is also the most targeted age for marketers. So why don’t you promote your small business on Facebook? Here’s how to start.

promote your small business on Facebook

First of all, create a Facebook business page. Add all of your important business information; name, contact info, hours, products, website if you have one. Make your profile picture your business logo, and add a cover photo that accurately reflects your business.

Once you’ve created the Facebook page, you need to update it regularly. That means at least once a day. Users like to see behind the scenes photos too, such as employee photos, anniversaries, and things that show off your business. They like pictures and videos, just keep them on brand with what you’re trying to promote. Use Facebook’s free tool “insights” if you’re unsure of what and when to post.

Friends of Fans is Facebook’s “word of mouth”, so encourage people to “check-in” or to tag your business in a post. You can do this by having them check in to receive a discount or tag to enter a contest. When a fan does this, their friends will see this and see your business. Free Advertising!

Create events! Whether it’s a grand opening, a sale, a special tasting, whatever it is, create an event. That event will show up in the events tab, and people will see it. When people are interested in it, or check that they’re going to it, their friends will see that too!

Engage with your fans as well as with other pages. Be sure you’re responding to questions and comments on your page. It’s equally important that your page is interacting with similar pages, as well as local businesses. These actions will help get your business name out there.

If you need some help getting your business set up on Facebook or other social media outlets, Webtivity Marketing & Design has got you covered, reach out to us online or give us a call at (941) 753-7574!

5 Ways to Build Online Credibility
Posted by Meredith on 18 February 2020 09:39 am

What is it that makes a business credible online these days? When businesses are competing for the same space in Google’s SERP’s, often it comes down to which business is more credible. So let’s break down some ways to build online credibility.

Build Online Credibility

Search your business profile online and make sure that not only are all elements filled out accordingly, but that they match, and that they’re interesting to read. Add elements that would make you feel like the business is trustworthy if you were searching, such as pictures, logos, or an address. Include your staff if you have any.

Yes, we’ve said it before but blog. Become an authority – an expert in your field. Don’t just blog, but blog often. Not only does blogging increase your online search engine traffic, but it can also increase your leads, and help to back up your sales pitch if necessary.

Get active on social media accounts. More often than not, after someone finds a business online, they go looking for that business on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. If they find an active social media presence, that business automatically gets a leg up on the competition. By being social, you create trust and connect with your online audience. Be authentic, transparent, and be sure to listen and to respond to comments, questions, and reviews in a timely manner.

Highlight what it is that makes YOUR business unique! What makes you stand out? Whether it’s your standards, your warranty, or your timeliness. Whatever it is that makes you different from your competitor, show it, improve upon it, and make sure your customers feel good about choosing your business over another.

Nothing stands out to a potential buyer more than proof of credibility. Proof of credibility can include testimonials from previous clients, any awards your business has received, memberships/badges with credible associations, endorsements from credible sources, and even degrees from academic institutions. The more sources you provide, the more confident you will make potential consumers trust in your business.

If you need help increasing your online credibility in the Bradenton or St. Petersburg area, give us a call or reach out to us online!
