Today I’m sharing with you three tips that you simply MUST be thinking of in your business social media marketing.

But before we get to that – have you got yourself a copy of my marketing book – Small Town Big Impact?

If not, head to my website and get yourself a copy www.socialmediaandmarketing.com.au – there’s 107 different marketing strategies in there – it’s well worth the read.

And plus if you really don’t want to read it all – you don’t have to. Just flick open a page, have a read of a strategy and if it’s right for you, test it in your own business. Simple!

Ok, here are three things you need to be keeping an eye on this year in your marketing:

1. Audiences are Dead!

Or at least they are dying. Seriously, if you are consistently chasing an audience rather than building a community, you are going to find it harder and harder to survive. An audience is something you talk AT, a community is something you are involved in, and your community interacts with each other. You are the leader 100%, but you are creating a space for others not just throwing more content down their throats hoping they will buy.

2. TikTok and Reels – hate to break it you but they aren’t going away any time soon.

The dancing, singing and producing content to “trending music” is certainly not going to help you build your community much any more but showing up, using these tools with strategy, and showing your thought leadership, your expertise, your “you” – that’s the way to use these strategies in 2024. If it’s overwhelming then think two things (a) is my audience actually watching them and if yes (b) think how you could make a series of content rather than just random content. Videos that have a continuous theme work well – especially on TikTok because that’s how the algorithm works. Of course, if your people aren’t watching reels or TikToks, then enjoy them in a personal context instead of spending lots of time/money on making them for your business. (Can I just say here, never assume though – do your research before you snob the platforms).

3. Two words to live by – repurposing and retargeting!

Repurpose your content, especially if you’ve been content creating for a while! You don’t need to produce more and more content, especially if some content works for you. Make your life simpler and look at what you can repurpose. And retarget, where’s your warm traffic and how can you remarket to them. Some ideas would be to have an email marketing strategy, get them on a list and remarket to them that way, or upload your email list to Meta and serve and ad direct to them or run google/meta retargeting ads for traffic that’s been on your website.

Remember, you need to ask for help to get help!
