Social Media’s Future – Beth on Business 2 Community!

I was recently included in Business 2 Community’s article on the Future of Social Media in 2017! Here’s my advice:

 

  • We’ll see an increase in videos on social media platforms, specifically Facebook Live events. More companies are using this tool to connect with their fans and followers in real time, while also demonstrating their product, discussing news or providing a behind-the-scenes look at an exclusive event.
  • Images on social media will become even more important, as visuals are an excellent way to connect with followers and tell your brand’s story using more than words. Bonus points go to companies that use images that share people’s faces, which are prioritized higher on social algorithms,or to businesses that use visuals to showcase their employees, letting their audience get to know their team members on a more personal level.beth-mc-business2community-socialmediafuture-12-12-2016

Here’s my insight:

“Adan likes Canva for its user-friendliness, saying that it’s a “simple way to add text or graphics to an image without having to use a bulky program like Photoshop.” Photoshop and InDesign each have their own place in visual design, but you don’t necessarily need all those tools for simple projects.”

Here’s my tip:

“To integrate your content marketing with SEO tactics, it’s important to follow this rule,” she said. “You’ll want your brand to be a resource for your fans, so make sure 80 percent of the content you share is be non-self-promotional — facts, memes, industry articles, humorous content — while 20 percent of updates can be directly promoting your brand.”
