Social Media Marketing 101
While some may think of social media marketing as scrolling feeds on Facebook and Instagram all day, those of us in the industry know that it’s so much more than that.
From content to community management, to strategy & metrics, there are many essential facets of social media.
However, the one thing that will make or break your brand’s social media presence is content. What you post on your channels is what drives all the other pieces of the puzzle, so you need to make sure you’re putting out the best content possible.
But what makes a great piece of social media content different?
Below I will break down the key pointers for creating successful social media content.

- Be Authentic, Authenticity is crucial for having a successful social media presence. Brands need to make sure they’re authentic in two ways: being authentic to themselves as a brand and being authentic to the channel on which they are posting.
