There is no doubt that social media, when used correctly, can be a very effective marketing tool. The key, however, to getting the most out of it is to ensure that you are engaging with your target audience. The best way of doing that is to create compelling, informative content.
Creating engaging content is not particularly hard to do. But, like doing anything, there is a particular knack to it. Some people have it, and some do not. But why is it important to engage with your audience? It's because it gets through on an emotional level.
What is engaging content?
Engaging content strikes a chord with the reader. It generates interest, sparks debate and can even make people chuckle or moan. When your audience enjoys what they read, they will look for more, and this takes us on to the next important point - regularity.
Creating a captive audience
Just publishing the odd article or blog now and again is not enough; even if it is engaging. If there is no regular follow-up with equally engaging material, your readers will forget all about what they have read and who wrote it. They will move on. Once you have lost readers, it's very hard to get them back again.
If you can maintain a steady, regular flow of content that connects with your audience, you will start to gain a regular following. Once you do that you are well on the way to acquiring a captive audience; one which will be like a ready-tilled garden, just waiting to receive your marketing seeds which will stand a better chance of blooming.
The problem is that many online entrepreneurs simply don't have the time to write regular content, and this is why so many are now turning to outside help. Of course, you have to find people you can trust.
