Are you ready for Google’s Page Experience update?

One of our favourite questions to ask clients is: “What results would determine success for you in this project?”
Traditional business goals, such as a 25% increase in website traffic or a 50% boost in profits don’t translate easily to a social media campaign, so we have to take an alternative route to goal setting.
Social media websites are growing exponentially, so you can harness this rapid growth to connect with customers, boost awareness of your brand and start meaningful conversations about your business in the most engaging manner.
1.Create an engaging profile
Take a look around Facebook and Twitter, particularly at well-known brands such as Red Bull, Coca Cola, Bulmers cider or Warburtons bread for examples of good design and layout practice. Don’t copy them exactly, but take inspiration from the elements you like and implement something similar on your own page.
2.Have some personality
No one wants to talk to a faceless brand, so change your profile picture to something more personal and use your own voice when writing Tweets and Facebook updates to engage your followers in conversation.
Don’t interrupt your conversation with too many hashtags or external links either, use both sparingly and only when they can add value to your post – when you’re live Tweeting from an event, for example.
Schedule Tweets and updates using Tweetdeck once a week instead of constructing and writing each morning. Then set aside some time each day to reply to direct messages and answer questions. Work smart, not hard!
4.Set goals and measure your success
Want 100 new followers in the next six months? Three meaningful conversations online each week? To respond to customer enquiries on the same day? Then set that as your goal, stick to it and pat yourself on the back when you’ve achieved it.
