Sometimes it feels like the digital world is leaving us in the dust! Don’t worry, we can feel it too. We’ve put together some tips for increasing your digital presence this year. Let’s dive in so you can catch up!
Video as a Storytelling Tool
Have you ever signed on to Instagram or TikTok to quickly catch up on current events and realized an hour had passed without you noticing? That’s the power of the algorithm, baby. Companies and brands have hopped onto the video production bandwagon, and it doesn’t look like they’re getting off anytime soon. Video is a powerful storytelling tool, which is what marketing is all about. By spending time brainstorming, following video trends (think trending dances and audio), and producing videos, you can get in front of your audience through Reels, TikToks, IGTV, Lives, and Stories.
Engage Your Followers
Every other day it seems like the social media gods are changing the rules. However, one tried-and-true method to increase our digital presence nowadays is to engage with your followers. Before. that used to mean just posting and watching the likes and comments roll in. Would you say something to a friend and listen to their praise and thoughts? No. You would have a conversation with them! Engaging with your followers is similar; you want to create a dialogue. Before posting, try committing 10-15 minutes to engage with your followers through liking, commenting, catching up on your DMs, and searching hashtags. Need more followers?

Video & Email Marketing

Showing up for your target and current audience through video and engaging with them has become essential to please the algorithm.

You have the tools needed to make 2022 your best year in the digital world.
