Whilst most social media seems to be simple text or image posts, many forget the importance of videos. Video’s will capture your audience in just a few seconds, and if your content is interesting enough, the viewer is likely to stick around. With the rise of YouTube, TikTok and most recently Instagram Reels, many businesses now look to post engaging content for new audiences across these platforms. 
 
Videos allow you to create interesting, visually based content that is a lot easier to consume than written paragraphs or swiping across to view paragraphs on attractive infographics. Videos require little to no interaction from the viewer – they simply have to press play, or just stop scrolling due to the auto-play feature. If you take a look at some of the most successful companies on social media, they will often use videos, especially when they’re trying to reach new audiences. As long as you have a good idea about who your audience is, you’re likely to succeed.

As long as you have a good idea about who your audience is, you’re likely to succeed. TikTok is the perfect platform to try and reach a bigger audience – if a viewer is already interacting with similar content to yours on their personalised ‘For You’ page, then your video is more likely to appear in their streamlined timeline. This means you gain more exposure, new followers, and the more interaction your video gets, the more likely you are to appear on other people’s pages. 
 
 
 
If you’re looking for a way to build your audience on Instagram, then there’s no better way than using Instagram Reels. 
 
Instagram Reels generate 67% more engagement than standard Instagram video content, therefore it is important that you begin to utilise them as part of your Instagram marketing plan. Creating reels that will become successful will help you appear as a suggested account on Instagram feeds, which could help to bring in new audiences. It can also help you to position yourself as an industry lead within your sector, especially if you’re one of the first to begin using Reels. 
 
Looking to get started? Here are some tips on how to create Instagram Reels. 
 
 
 
Keeping on top of your insights on social media is important if you want to see growth across your platforms. Insights help you to plan and modify your content so that you’re getting the best results from your social media marketing campaigns. Facebook provides you with detailed insights across a range of important elements. 
 
If you’re not currently looking at your insights and using them as a guide in order to have a successful business page, here are some reasons why you should start. 
 
 
Instagram Reels offer anyone the chance to create fun and engaging videos to share with their friends or anyone on Instagram. Reels are 15-60 seconds, multi-clip videos that can have sound, effects, and music added to them. 
 
Reels is a feature created by Instagram and is becoming an integral part of Instagram’s business model. Reels provide you with an opportunity to be creative while being relevant. It’s a quick and convenient way to engage your audience and deliver your message. Instagram Reels also provide visibility for your account as they’re just another way to reach your target audience, more importantly users will be able to view and share them for a longer period of time. 
 
A public Reel will appear in the explore tab, sharing your content to many users outside your following. The explore tab is used to discover new brands and content, with more than 70% of users following at least one brand on the platform. Reels will also appear on the pages dedicated to the songs, the hashtags or the effects added in the video. 
 
 
 
If you’re looking to make your central business platform LinkedIn, you’ll be able to have the opportunity to create articles that express your opinions, expertise and knowledge to your connections and others interested in topics within your industry of choice. 
 
Articles on LinkedIn are like standard blog posts that you may post on your website. They can give your audience a closer look at your industry, allow you to explore features of a new product or service you have on offer or can simply be a place for you to re-post any blogs you have on your website as a LinkedIn article. 
Here are the benefits of LinkedIn articles, and how you can start writing them. 
 
 
So, you have social media accounts set up for your business – now you need to post on them. But working out how many times you need to post each week will help you create a good strategy and work out the optimal times to put your content on social media. 
 
Each social media site is different, and the volume of posts you put up per week will vary over all your accounts. Looking at the four main social sites for businesses – Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter – here’s some advice on how many times you should be posting. 
 
 
 
In the last year, video content has started making a huge impact on social media. Apps such as TikTok have given new life to a once formulaic, algorithm-based cycle that saw many businesses lose or find it difficult to get views online. By 2022, online videos are likely to make up 82% of all consumer internet traffic, which is 15 times higher than in 2017. Therefore, now more than ever is the time to start developing video content for your business. Here are just some of the reasons why you need to start producing content in 2022. 
 
If you’ve never created any video content before, the process may feel daunting. But you don’t need fancy equipment or editing software to make your videos creative, innovative and the go-to source for consumers in your industry. Long-form video content like we see on YouTube doesn’t always have to be the only option available either, with Instagram reels and TikTok allowing you to create videos under a minute that gain large amounts of engagement, reach and impressions. You want to keep the viewer engaged, and they’ll move on quickly if they’re not impressed with what you’re showing so don’t be afraid to experiment at first with how your content is produced. You should keep it in line with your brand values and reputation on other social media as this will create a consistency across platforms. 
 
 
 
 
If you know how to write good copy for your social media posts, then you need to make sure the images you’re putting alongside it are as equally engaging and interesting. With visual content being one of the main things you need to focus on when advertising on social media, you must make sure it is a good way to attract people to interact with you and follow you on social media. 
 
With images on LinkedIn having a 98% more engagement rate than plain text posts, getting your visual content right is important to sustain your social media growth. Here are some tips on how you can achieve this with your visual content online. 
 
 
 
Posting on social media is a good way to build brand awareness, but if you’re not getting any engagement from your followers, you may have to review the content you’re posting. 
 
Building your engagement can be a gradual process over time, as the larger your follower base gets the more engagement, you’re likely to receive. 
 
Here are some top tips on how you can increase your social media engagement.
