  • What kind of content should I share?

After you have figured out what your brand voice should look like you should aim to structure your content around these four pillars Educational, inspiring, promotional and entertaining.

Educate your audience about your products and how you are solving their most common pain points. 

Do not be afraid to sell. However, it should be done subtly without coming off as being too sales-focused or spammy. Promote your products, and give offers to your clients that way they connect with you more.

And talking about connecting with your audience there is no better way to connect with your online audience than through entertainment, sharing funny, relatable content, you can test out physical events to nurture and build your community online so you transform them from just followers and subscribers to loyal fans.

Finally, make sure your content is inspiring. 

Choose the right platforms and know what consistency means for you

You must not be everywhere at the same time. Yes, you can have a presence on various platforms but your time will be more well spent if you focus on one and then build something around it so it becomes a source that trickles down the other platforms.

Consistency is not the same as fluency. Consistency might mean you are posting stories every day or making sure you reply to all comments and chat on your major channels. It is beyond just posting daily, therefore figure out how consistent you want to be on your channels and implement it.

In the end, you could read all this and still take no action. You could watch a thousand YouTube videos about this topic and you will still do nothing about it. You will not grow if you act that way.
