How to Start an Effective Outreach Program - With a Message that Really Works
Optimize Your Social Media Outreach
For your presence on social media to be effective, focus on several critical elements:
Make a Good First Impression
Provide your visitors with useful information that is up-to-date, accurate, and relevant to why they would come to your site.
Be sure your content is clear and useful, with a positive viewpoint. Keep a focus on quality, and useful content.
Use SEO Best Practices – Be Creative
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is important. If visitors can’t find your message, they certainly can’t act on it.
Use relevant keywords that will help them locate your content, rising to the top of search engine results.
Keep it Coming
Update your social media content frequently and regularly, so that regular visitors find updates and more useful information. Be sure your social media outreach is never stale or outdated.
Social media sites are somewhat predictable, making timing important for your postings. You can reach a larger number of viewers through updating media such as Twitter when more individuals tend to be online and reacting to tweets.
Promote Yourself – Know Your Target Audience
Make it easy for visitors to share posts with co-workers and friends, to extend your outreach. Use effective, meaningful hashtags that are easily remembered.
Utilize the networking functionality of social media to your advantage in networking with peers, prospective employees, and customers.
Focus your efforts on media popular with the audience you’re trying to reach. Business contacts may be more reachable through LinkedIn, with its capability to make connections. Facebook may be a more effective presence for consumer outreach.
Leverage Digital Technology
Put technology to work for you in your social media outreach. Create groups and generate invitations to join them. This is an easy way to expand your regular visitor base and broaden your audience through automated email messages.
Monitor results and respond to emails or queries quickly and courteously. This is valuable in developing relationships, promoting goodwill, and promoting your brand outreach.
