Social Media 101

What Social Media platforms should I be using?

With so many social media platforms available, it’s easy to wonder which one you should be using for your business.

The most popular platforms for social media marketing and your business growth include:

  • Instagram
  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn
  • TikTok
  • Pinterest

Your best bet is to choose the platform that your customer base is using and that best fits your brand. That’s right, go to where the party is! Start off by assessing the platforms to see if your customer is there, whether they’re actively engaging with brands, and if it fits your brand personality.

Now that you’re committed to adding at least one social media platform to your business marketing, you’re on your way to increasing your brand exposure.

Plann’s integration with these platforms give you complete social media planning, scheduling, analytics and strategy suite that is visually focused, just like your customers to ensure your absolute success on social media.

How do I use hashtags?

Once upon a time, the # symbol was a simple pound sign or hash. Fast forward to the era of social media and that humble hash is an online sensation!

A hashtag is a keyword or phrase preceded by the hash symbol (#), and is included within a post or comment to allow the post to become searchable. Put simply, they were created as a way to organize the massive amount of content across social networks – and by including hash marks in your post, they become discoverable to everyone, even if they’re not your followers or fans. Hello reach!

We suggest adding content based, trending or brand-based hashtags.

Content-based hashtags are closely related to your product, service or area of expertise. They are closely related to the content that is being published.  For instance, at Plann we primarily use hashtags related to social media such as #socialmediamanagement, #instagramforbusiness, #socialmediaguru and #contentstrategy

Trending hashtags are those existing hashtags that have grown popular among millions of users. Generally these hashtags are a lot of fun and can range from holiday to random games. Before using these hashtags, make sure your post adds value to the ongoing conversation.

Branded hashtags are unique to your brand and can be used for general branding, promotions, events, contests or marketing campaigns.

When you choose the right hashtag, you can greatly broaden the reach of your social media posts to thousands of potential followers, fans or customers.

Plann makes hashtags management easy with unlimited customizable hashtag sets, automatic and first comment posting and done-for-you hashtag post ideas.

What should I put in my caption?

Social media is a visual platform, but your words count too! Captions are prime real-estate to build your brand personality and connect with your audience.

Writing engaging captions for your social media accounts that drive interactions on your post is the best way to increase your audience’s engagement, and reach new viewers. Use this opportunity to tell stories about your business, ask questions and entertain your community.

Plann has lots of social starters to keep the conversation going! Helpful, done-for-you captions are ready to use so you’ll never run out of ideas to post again.

How often should I post?

There is no such thing as a ‘size fits all’ marketing strategy. Instead, we say aim for consistent posting of good quality content. Yes, quality over quantity!

The best way to find what works for your brand is to try, test, review and then repeat. It may seem simple, but this is a growth marketing principle that has helped us to grow our app super fast!
