Being a founder is hard, we get it. Your todo list is never ending and social media can seem like a a task thats not super important.

We’re unfortunately going to have to reprioritise this (pretty quick and easy!) task on your to do list. Engaging with your businesses audience directly through social media can significantly impact the growth and visibility of your accounts

People like people, so the more you put your face and voice behind something the more it will grow. The more you speak authentically, the more people will be drawn to your brand (and thats the goal right?). So in addition to the general posts on your social media account, you sharing directly also helps!

We’ve broken down how easy it is for you to share with step by step instructions below.

Summing up our top tips:

  1. Set a reminder in your calendar: Even if it’s once a week you share something, we promise it will make a difference. Set a recurring 15 mins in your calendar to go over your companies accounts, post one of your favourite things with a quick caption and voilà!
  2. Get the conversation flowing: If you have time, engage in your followers in the comments and have a conversation with people commenting. Social media is all about connection and community
  3. If you’ve got time, interact with other businesses: If you have time, like and interact with other business you partner with, come across or have worked with in the past/present. Social media is all about networking and you never know the relationships you can build online and where they’ll get you!
