7 Ways to Increase Your Social Media Outreach!

One of the major problem that companies are facing nowadays is to perform well on social media. All brands want to experience good volume of social media publicity, and get lots of repins, retweets, and shares on Facebook, and LinkedIn votes. Furthermore getting social media publicity can easily boost the online reputation of a brand, and even improve the conversion rates. Many companies are now considering online reputation management very seriously, and are using social media to track their social reach.


Mentioned below are 7 ways to grow your online outreach and improve your social media presence.

1. Humor Plays a Major Role

People love sharing entertaining and funny jokes, videos, and pictures with their friends and family members on social media. Companies who know how to smartly integrate humor into their social media posts will be ahead of others who merely post the promotional stuff.

It is however not advisable to use over humor, as it might backfire. It is also recommended to avoid posting on sensitive topics such as racism, politics, religion, etc.

2. Be Bold, Be Different!

It’s all about being different, and appealing to general public; for instance, take car business, where there are several other distributors who sell the same car. Make sure that you offer the product with unique selling proposition. Ensure that your brand has a different appeal; otherwise you’re sure to get lost among thousands of other similar businesses on the Internet.

3. Ask Questions

Ask questions to lead people to offer their comments on the social media pages. In this manner, you can also make the posts interactive. You can post the images of two different brands on Facebook and ask your audience to comment on those posts or create a simple poll to engage the users. The ultimate goal is to inspire your audience on social media page to explore your offerings, and build rapport with them.

4. Life is Incomplete without Images!

As the good old saying goes – “a picture can speak a thousand words” – it’s very much true when it comes to social media. But, you need to make sure that the visuals that you post help in brand building.

5. Turning the Negative Comments into Positive Feedback

reputation managementMany times, you’d come across negative comments on social media, but never commit the mistake of deleting those, because it’d only result in more negative publicity. You should rather take this as an opportunity to do the needful quickly, and impress those who had been unhappy with your services for a reason. And, by doing so, you can potentially convert the negative comments into strong positive feedback within no time, and not only retain a valuable customer, but also get a few referrals from him/her.

6. Branding with the Season

Timely articles and promotions will always get lots of attention, so it’s imperative to do the branding according to the season. For instance, offering X-Mas and New Year Deals not only allows you to promote your offerings during the festive season, but also a chance to interact with potential audience by greeting them, and then letting them know about your seasonal offers in a non-promotional manner.

7. People Love Giveaways

Giveaways and contests are the most common types of promotional techniques, which never fail on social media, but you need to target people from the right demographic to get good results.

In a Nutshell

You can increase the social media mentions very easily by following these basic tips. You just need to have a unique approach in promoting your brand in the market and growing its reach on social media. You just need to post regular updates, relevant videos, pictures, and interact with the target audience on a regular basis.

    Hey Enstine,
    I was wondering why I ain’t seeing much of content from you these days. And there you are with an awesome post delivered :) . Congo bro, you made it a killer one.

    Humor – Well that’s a great idea. Lemme definitely try that one.
    Asking questions are also something worth doing. I use to start a poll and ask my readers about the new post I roll out and it kinda works fine.

    The best tip you shared here? That would be number 5. Turning negative feedback into positive.

    Thanks a lot again Enstine. Keep up the good work.

    Enstine, I love your one on the negative feedback, it’s means they care and you can turn that into a postive. It’s better than apathy. I’ve found giveaways to be touch and go. I’d love to learn more about some that really work well. Sometimes asking questions can be risky if no one responds but usually it works well. Excellent points!

    Hi Enstine

    Good points. About the “negativity”, my Dad – very successful in off-line business, said making a mistake didn’t matter as much as putting it right quickly!

    Using social media for business is very important to helping a business grow but just like blogs, they require time to attain that. Many social media platforms are also trying to make their platform very flexible and this would really help businesses.

    In the case of this post, I like the part where you pointed out about turning negative comments to positive feedbacks. Like I do tell some friends: “Not everyone would like you at a particular point in time. Only the true people would tell you why”. That’s just how it is. Negative comments are ways to tell you what a particular person feels about your business or content. They stand as a building step to buckle up.

    I think humor can play a big role in your social media outreach. I know a lot of us can be so serious, at least I can, but you notice that people can be more responsive when you can give a little humor from time to time. This lets them know that you can be more approachable. Thanks for sharing a great list here Enstine!

  19. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from
    someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
