What should you post?
What should you post?
Photos and videos are most engaged with and reach the most people.
According to the Social Media Examiner, research shows that in almost every industry, photos have more interaction than statuses, links or videos. Photos often get from 5 to 20 times as much interaction as any other type of Facebook post.
Write shorter posts: posts with 80 characters or less have 27% higher engagement rates
No hashtags - research shows they have no or even a negative effect on your posts
Social Media Strategy
Twitter Etiquette
Check and respond often
Happens in real-time
You have 140 characters but 120 characters works best for retweets
If you retweet someone, use the word "RT" or "retweet"
Follow strategically. You don't want to have huge following numbers compared to followers
Twitter users see the best results when they send original tweets 1-4 times per day.
Why Google+?
Similar to Facebook, but with no ads
You start with a Google+ "profile," can create "pages"
The language is a little different:
You organize your "people" in "circles"
You "+1" instead of "like"
Features others do not have:
Hangouts - video chats with up to 10 people
Tailoring who you send posts to
Using Google+?
You must have a personal and business page
Hashtags work!
Very visual platform
Photos and videos work well
