Using Social Media Polls
On social media, polls help amplify engagement for your business while getting to know your target customer and what they are looking for. This gives your followers something to respond to with the simple interaction of a click.
Keep your polls fun and easy to use! You don’t always need to make it “all about you” so give them something to enjoy. When creating a poll on Twitter, be sure to add relevant or trending hashtags.
Some example polls to use are:
- Getting feedback on new features
- Push traffic to your website
- Create an invitation to a company event
- For research purposes like choosing the fans favorite product or menu item
- Get to know the content they like
- What services are they looking for
While memes have been around for quite some time now, they can pack a serious marketing punch when used well. Marketers need to know their audience language and sense of humor. Well executed memes are memorable, highly viral, and speak to their audience. A good meme will make your followers react and share, and their friends may have a similar reaction.
Share a GIF
Everyone loves a good GIF. These are guaranteed to create a good laugh, a comment, a tag, or even a share! Forbes reported that “100 million daily active users now request a GIF from Giphy.”
