Have you started your company’s social media profiles months ago and still only have your mom as a follower? All you want is for your Instagram pictures to hit over 100,000 likes—is that too much to ask?
Social media for businesses is the newest platform to search for products and services. It’s crucial for your company to be active there. If you’re looking for some social media tips, start first with these not-always-so-obvious social media no-brainers. If you’re missing these, there’s really no way to reach your #socialmediagoals.
Social media marketing is evolving every day; there are always more ways for you to reach your customers. If your presence online is dull or only reaching two people, start looking closely at what you’re doing. The most obvious mistakes on social media could be keeping you from reaching new consumers.
Hashtags are the newest in search keywords, working to filter and group worldwide conversations. Using hashtags is a social media no-brainer.

Hashtags can also help people find you more easily. If someone is looking for #Pupcare and you’ve been using the same hashtag, they’ll be more likely to find you and become a customer. Make brand-specific hashtags for your customers to connect with you.
Avoid hashtags that are too broad, like #hair or #coffee. These saturated hashtags will give you less of a chance to stand out and be found.

To get your consumers to visit a website or view a new product, give your posts direction:
Calls to action like these can lead to more social engagement. It’s a social media no-brainer, but unfortunately, many people forget their importance.
