3 C’s in Social Media

3 C’s in Social Media – Community, Customer Service, & Consistency

I had the pleasure of speaking to a local mastermind/business networking group for 10 minutes! I quickly dove into my top recommendations for this year which includes: community, customer service, and being consistent.

“…over 53% of the world’s population on social media, it’s critical that your business has an effective social media strategy that helps you reach your intended audience.”

Community: Your Facebook Groups

“The Facebook algorithm prioritizes posts from Groups users care about, so a post that gets amplified in a popular Group by enthusiasts and fans is likelier to earn more reach.” – Hootsuite article.

Focus on growing your business by actively participating in your local town’s Facebook group.( i.e. Moving to and Living in Johnson City, Kingsport, and Bristol TN) and actively posting when the rules permit which is currently “Small Business Saturday” each Saturday with that being the hashtag.

I also recommend to search for key topics or keywords relevant to your industry by using the magnify tool on the top. I can actively engage with previous posts.

I am a big fan of Gray Bird Boutique which is an online boutique that grew from a Facebook group community and now has an app along with its website. The owner, doesn’t always talk about the clothing but actively creates fun posts such as this one shown. She goes lives to show her makeup tutorial, she recently went live to share her Oreo dip recipe. I really enjoyed the high school picture posts because it had over 80 likes and several comments by brave women who shared their 80 hair high school pictures!

Customer Service is Strong on Social Media

Answering a complaint on social media can increase customer advocacy by 25%. (Convince & Convert)

79% of consumers expect brands to respond within a day of reaching out over social media, but average brand response rates across all industries is lower than 25%. (Sprout Social)

Make sure your bots or messenger on social channels is set up. Personify your messenger app, create FAQs, make sure those business hours are updated in the About section because of the different types of messages that your customers can receive (that you have to set up on the advanced settings).

Be consistent!

Post. If you don’t want to show up in the picture or video come up with content using your product or service as the prompt. I recently did an Instagram Reel using the books that I have recently read as a post. Always taking the time to be present for your audience is vital. Find a system or 3rd party scheduling system to make sure you anticipate posts before going on vacation or expected busy timeframes.
