Social media algorithms

Social media is one of the most powerful tools that your business could be using. While you may have already signed your business up to social media business accounts, you’re probably not using them to their full extent. Business accounts have more features that you should be keeping track of, and also allows you to see how well your business is doing with your fans/followers. Another useful thing that will most definitely help your business is by learning social media algorithms. Each platform works differently, and what works on say Facebook, won’t work on Twitter or Instagram. While they all have similarities, some platforms are best used at certain times of day. Taking the time and effort to learn social media algorithms will make the world of difference to the exposure your business has.

You may be wondering how you’re going to manage keeping on top of your business and social media? Luckily, there are two options for you to try so that you can get on with other important tasks:

  • Use a scheduling app to post for you and at the right times (once you know them). While these are a fab way of keeping on top of social media posts, it is still very automated. So, if a customer wishes to get in touch, they’ll be waiting a while for a response and this can reflect badly on your business.

  • Hire someone to manage your social media accounts for you. This would mean your social media accounts are more active and available to interact with your customers. It also works perfectly if you have a website that you want to promote alongside it too.

Training in new programs

The whole world is becoming more digitised, and it’s made business much easier than it’s ever been. Now you are able to get programs that can make all of your mundane tasks much easier and faster. Consider training in new programs such as Microsoft Excel so that you’re able to keep track of administrative work such as bookkeeping. As tempting as it might be to try and teach yourself how to use these programmes, It’s certainly easier to learn Microsoft Excel in a nurturing environment. Invest in training so that your business is able to grow and thrive and also make your life much easier.

Marketing strategies

One thing that all businesses need is some form of marketing so that people are able to find you, remember you, and use you when they next need your product or service. We mentioned social media earlier, and while it’s a very powerful tool, you should also be looking into other avenues for marketing purposes. Other sides of the internet, magazines, newspapers, TV adverts and banners still have a very big effect on people’s minds. Don’t just explore one or two, use them all. Take the time to learn about how each strategy works and how it will benefit your business. So, if you’ve got a law firm for example, newspapers and TV adverts are likely to be one of your best avenues.

Learn in depth about these three things and you’ll soon find that you’re able to apply them to your business and watch it grow even bigger! Good luck with your enterprise!
