Here are some tips we’ve prepared for you to keep up with modern SMM trends:
Advertise your brand in ‘Stories’
This is the most consumed type of content from smartphones in social networks. Users are scrolling the news feed less and less, so brands must rely on advertising exactly in stories.
Separate accounts to engage local audiences. Create local accounts to promote events and office news.
Custom content to motivate subscribers. Analyze your efforts and create content based on user behavior.
Play with your target audience
People like to play with brands. So, look for an interesting format for gamification:
Game creatives. Interactive mini-games require simple but fun activities from users. For example, go through a quest or solve a task. It is not only entertaining but also motivating to interact with the brand.
Masks on Instagram with reference to the brand. This is a free distribution of product information. The more interesting your mask, the more people use it.
