“The power of visibility can never be underestimated.”Margaret Cho
As the digital landscape and social media continues to change, it seems like there are always new ways to use it. You may be able to think of a few brands that have an excellent, stand-out social media presence, while others take a more middle-of-the-line approach. And some companies don’t use social media at all.
In our blog, we’ve previously discussed many of the benefits of using social media effectively, as well as strategies and tactics to bolster engagement, brand awareness, and loyalty.
However, we understand that many of our clients and followers face social media content creation from a unique perspective due to the nature of their industry. An international pizza franchise or a cutting-edge technology company may have more bandwidth for creativity regarding tone and content, among other things.
But for European industrial engineering brands – like our clients – much of the conventional advice about social media might not ring true.
If you find yourself in a similar category, you might wonder if it’s even worth it to keep up with social media. If it’s worth it to continue expending the time and energy. What about when the best practices don’t apply?
At Brieffin, we have an opinion on this. YES, it’s worth it to keep a social media presence.
Even if you don’t have the best, most exciting content in the world. Even if you think no one is seeing or engaging with your posts. Even if you might think it’s a waste of time.
Here’s something important to understand. Social media, among other things, is a strong tool for visibility.
Even if your Twitter feed isn’t full of fantastic, groundbreaking content, don’t worry. It’s not about that. It’s about getting your message out there. Consistently.
Because it’s likely your competitors are doing it. And the truth is, in 2019, brands – no matter what type – are expected to have a social media presence. The presence itself says just as much, if not more, than what the content says.
What does the content say? Well, if you feel like you’ve already said everything there is to say, there’s something else you can do. Re-purpose. It’s a key ingredient in content strategies, and it helps you share a consistent message in a different way.
So even on the days where social media feels like an uphill battle, remember the reason why you’re doing it. Because it keeps your brand visible, post after post, to your followers. Because it shows regularity and attention to detail. And… because it’s expected.
As social media content creators for industrial brands over the past 8 years, we’ve had our share of challenges. But we’ve always come out stronger on the other side.
