Is Your Facebook Content Truly Social?

Imagine yourself in a real-life social situation. Will you stand around and talk to others in the room even if they aren’t listening or seem bored and disinterested? Umm, awkward. It’s no different in the online world, but many of us don’t realize it. If your Facebook posts are talking but nobody is listening, your social content is not doing a very good job.

Whether you are communicating through Facebook posts or other social channels, your content must add something of value to your audience. Make them think. Get them smiling or even laughing! Encourage them to comment and share your posts. Ultimately, your social content must serve to support your business goals through increased interaction with your customers and prospects. The more users that engage with your social content, the more your content will gain visibility.
You want your audience to like, comment, or share your posts. How can your brand get more interaction on Facebook? Here are our best tips.

Ask a Question

Sometimes, the best way to kick off an active post is to ask for opinions or for information. Ask your audience:

  • Do you agree with …..?
  • Why do you use our brand?
  • Why do you enjoy ….?
  • What do you know about….?

Respond to Your Audience

Once you start to get engagement with your audience, reciprocate. People want to know you are listening. Respond to user’s comments. Offer content based on their answers to your questions. If you went to an in-person meeting and no one responded to you, you probably wouldn’t go back. Talk to your audience. Start a conversation on social media.

Focus on Quality, Not Quantity

People scroll through digital content very quickly. They’ll pass up content that isn’t professional and interesting. Use high quality photos. You can produce good pictures with your own smartphone. You just want to check that your photos look nice for social media. Double check your grammar and spelling. Even the best copywriters can sometimes make mistakes. It doesn’t take much time to get a second set of eyes to review your posts.

Collaborate with Another Brand

Disney and Hulu paired up to get more users. Taco Bell and Doritos teamed up to grow their market. Find a brand with an audience that doesn’t overlap yours and collaborate to grow your audience. Share posts from other popular brands to reach a bigger audience. Social media success can happen when you partner up.

Use Analytics

Assess how well your content performs. Learn when and how your users are responding. Test different posts to see what users like. Use the engagement metrics instead of reach. Reach is like a person who is window shopping. Engagement is the person who actually comes into your store. Using Facebook Insights can help you be more effective with your social media posts.

Be Consistent – Post Regularly

Once you start getting more engagement, you must keep it up. You want your audiences to expect to see content from your brand. If that sounds like a lot more work, you can get help from a content agency to manage your social media marketing. Our SEO writers will create quality Facebook posts that will help grow your engagement on the platform.

And the Perks of Gaining SEO Insights!

How do you measure the ROI when it comes to SEO? If you’re looking at the number of visitors to your website, you might be doing it wrong. The number of people who visit your site could be in the thousands, but if your content doesn’t convert, what difference does it make? Content isn’t cheap to create. The number of visitors to your site doesn’t tell the real story. Here are three metrics you can use to evaluate how your content is performing and whether your content marketing strategy is garnering its money’s worth.

Why Your Content Must Be the Burning Question for Your Audience!

Google is constantly adding search features that help users get relevant information quickly. The “People Also Ask” feature has been around for a while, but it seems to be gaining traction as it’s being used in more searches. PAA boxes are another type of digital real estate, increasing your reach on a particular subject if you can get featured as an answer to a PAA question. Make it part of your content marketing strategy, even if you don’t rank for it immediately. The results might be slow, but they are worth waiting for.

And Why It's Important!

Featured snippets on Google are valuable digital real estate for your content marketing assets. These snippets are quick answers to search questions. Although snippets are designed to provide answers for the user without having to clickthrough to the page, Hubspot found that content with a snippet had a higher click-through rate of 2x or more, making this search feature important to your SEO strategy. If you can get your copywriting featured as a snippet, it builds your authority and visibility.

Use the Right Content Nails!

‘Cinderella' is the classic rags to riches story. Her sisters wanted to marry the prince, but just dressing up as princesses wasn't enough. Nothing the sisters did could make the prince choose them. The glass slipper had to fit. The real match happened when the slipper fit perfectly. Content marketing is much like that fairytale perfect fit. Personalized content can be that perfect fit. Here's how to use the data you have about your customers to make the content fit.

Don't Rely on Endless Spreadsheets for Keyword Optimization

Phil Frost, Founder and COO of Main Street ROI, says, “Successful SEO is not about tricking Google. It’s about PARTNERING with Google to provide the best search results for Google’s users.” Google indexes information to provide relevant search results, not to make marketing easier. When you keep that in your mind as part of your content marketing strategy, you can use keywords to support your SEO strategy to provide engaging content that delivers value to your audience.

What You Need to Know

If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that Google is going to update its search algorithm. Some experts estimate that Google makes 500 to 600 updates annually, or once or twice each day. Most of these changes don’t have a significant impact on your SEO strategy, but every now and then, one comes along that can have serious repercussions.

Google, one of the largest companies in the world, relies on artificial intelligence for hundreds of it projects. It can seem a little hypocritical for Google to tell businesses that they can’t use AI-generated content on their website. Back in 2010, Google’s John Mueller said that using automated translation tools to create content for your website “could be viewed as being against our Webmaster guidelines.” Here we are, over 10 years later, and Mueller just tweeted that “content generators have been around since the start of the web…Most sites…don’t need help creating low-quality content.” There’s a big discussion in the SEO industry about AI-generated content.
