What type of content are you sharing on behalf of your business? Is it intentional?
At our Tech Talk in September, we discussed tips for creating and sharing online content, including social media posts, email newsletters, blog posts, photos, video, and more.
One of the most important things to remember is to have a variety of content and mix it up often, such as informational articles, business updates and promotions, fun and interactive posts, and staff or customer spotlights.
Don’t forget to use your content on multiple platforms to reach more people. A newsletter article can be turned into a blog post, shared on social media, and linked in an email.
Consistency is also essential. After you create your content, try to upload it at the same time each week or month. For example, if you share a #TuesdayTip on social media for a few weeks, customers will begin to watch for it, and will be disappointed if you don’t post. Or if you share your monthly newsletter the first week of each month, try your best to continue doing so.
When it comes to creating content, knowing your audience is key. Your message will get out if you know who are writing for, what type of content they enjoy, and how you can reach them. Most people enjoy stories, especially if it includes them or people like the, so once you find your audience, try to include them in your content.
Overall, content creation is an experiment. You must do your research and through trial and error, you can find what type of content works best for your business.
We will not have a Tech Talk in October, so our next one will be Friday, November 15, 8 a.m., at the Venango Chamber. Anyone is welcome to attend!
