6️⃣Simple Ways To Optimize Your Social Media Profiles
Globally, an estimated 5.5 billion people use social media regularly, and that number continues to climb. With so much social activity, it’s crucial to engage with your audience on social platforms to build your Personal Brand and advance in your career or business.
Unfortunately, most people do not optimize their social profile . An unoptimized social media profile fails to drive traffic and does not tell users anything about your brand or who it caters to, which hurts its growth.
Here are Six easy ways you can optimize your social profiles today to build a better Personal Brand and get greater success in your career or business.
Clarify Your Brand Name
The first thing that will catch a user’s attention when they see you on social media is your name. You need to add your brand name so users both old and new can easily identify you and engage with your content.
It might seem like a good idea to have a unique name on social media, but in reality, this only hurts your SEO and conversions. If people can’t recognize your business, they won’t bother to engage further. Additionally, search engines can’t index your social content if it’s under a different name. Make sure you stick to your brand name across all profiles to ensure they’re getting the most engagement possible.
Upload A High-Quality Profile Picture
People need to put a face to a name, whether that’s a logo, a persona or a real person in your company. Consumers today want to feel like they’re engaging with humanized brands that value personalized interactions. But that’s difficult to achieve if you don’t have the appropriate profile picture.
Your profile picture should represent your brand and make it easy for new users to identify your business. It’s also important to use the same image across all social media platforms to ensure users can find you anywhere they search.
Create and Use an attractive Cover Image
When people visit your social media profiles, one of the first things they’re going to see is your cover image. Given this, it’s important to use that valuable space on the top of your profile to make a meaningful statement that your audience will remember.
you should use your cover photo to show some personality, and give visitors an idea of what to expect from your brand and social feed. This is why it’s so important to use a custom image that reflects your Personal brand - no one’s going to stop or remember you for a stock photo.
Take the time to create something that’ll make people want to keep scrolling and stay with your content for a while. You can also use it to have some fun - unlike your profile picture, you should consider changing your cover photo frequently. Because of its prominent position on the page, your cover image can be a great place to plant a CTA (call to action). Your cover image is also a great place to promote new products and services.
You can use a simple free tool like Canva to create an attractive cover image.
Update Your Bio With Relevant Information
New visitors check out your profile because they’re searching for information about your brand. They want to know what you do, what you sell, who your audience is and if you have what they need. However, it’s difficult to figure that out without an optimized bio section.
In a few sentences, your social media bio needs to be clear about what your business is and what it does. It’s important to add relevant keywords so your target audience can find you in search. When users look up your brand, you want the right information to pop up so they can go straight to your content.
When crafting your bio, aim to sound natural and let your brand personality shine through. The unique elements of your social media profile will grab your audience’s attention and persuade them to convert.
One way users find relevant brands and products is by searching for hashtags. Hashtags are keywords people add to social media content to sort it by category. So, when you search for something on a social media engine, relevant content pops up in the results.
Use your profile to add brand-related hashtags and promote your business. It’s easier for your target audience to discover your business when hashtags put your content on the radar. That way, it can get the engagement and attention it deserves.
Link To Your Website
As you build brand awareness on social media, more people will become interested in your business. When they come across your profile, it’s the perfect opportunity to lead them directly to your website. From there, they can browse your content and learn more about your company with little to no effort from you.
Some platforms have a section where you can plug your website, while others let you add it to your description. Make sure you add this information to your profile as soon as you create it to lead as many people to your website as possible. From there, they can engage with your content, browse your products and service, and subscribe to your email list.
For your Personal Brand to grow, you need to invest in social media marketing. It’s where your future employers or customers hang out, search for products and discuss experiences. If your personal brand isn’t visible, then it’s also missing out on sales, email signups and more. So optimize your Social Media Profiles today!!
