Think Videos

A quick 10 second video is great for your business because it puts a ‘real person’ to the business. They are also quick and snappy to grab the attention of someone scrolling through social media, or a website. What can you do a video about?

Use Influencers

Think about those people on social media platforms that influence and inspire you. Chances are that they are influencing and inspiring others. Start to build a relationship with these people, over time your relationship will grow and as they engage with you, their followers will too.

Live Videos

Grab the LinkedIn Live, Periscope and Facebook Live opportunities to chat to your audience in the here and now. This is a great way to engage with your audience, to tell them what is new, for them to ask questions and to add personality to your business.

Deals and Promotions

Buyers love bargains, especially online deals and promotions. Think about the deals and promotions you can offer and plan them out for the year ahead. Think about times when certain products or services are popular and plan deals and promotions around these.

Be Personal

Do everything you can to create a personalised customer experience for every user of your website or buyer of your service or product. Personalised experiences are what will really work for your target audience in 2019 as it is what consumers are crying out for.
