1. Optimize Your Bio

Your bio should be optimized to reflect your industry, products/services, and location. Although bio format varies across social media sites, all your bios should remain consistent in brand message, values, and voice. Keeping a condensed bio will help with searchability within the platform and on search engines.

2. Sprinkle in Hashtags

Think of hashtags like you would keywords. Hashtags will allow social media and search engines to sort and categorize the content. This will enable users to find your business, products, and services easily. Each platform uses hashtags in different ways; make sure you use them strategically for each platform and based on the type of content you are creating.

3. Create Strategic Content

Creating content for social media should always be driven by strategy. Your content should align with your marketing plan and boost traffic to your website. Blog posts, videos, infographics, and podcasts are proven to be more engaging and generate more leads than traditional content.

4. Utilize Links

Links, links, links! Best practice suggests utilizing links within your content copy and social media bio whenever possible. Every bio needs to link to contact information and your small business’s website. Adding a link to a custom landing page is a great SEO tool if you release a monthly blog post or video. Not only will a unique landing page include multiple links that are customizable, but it will bring all the traffic to your site. Meaning you can track customer conversions directly from the landing page!
