Ask an Expert: Navigating 2022 – Why Your Social Strategy Matters
Business leaders from across Simcoe County are invited to join us on March 30, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. for an Ask an Expert session on why your social media strategy matters. Join us to gain enthusiasm and excitement for social media, as you learn tangible strategies that you can begin to implement that will support your business goals.
The session will be led by social media experts and will break down three strategies to help your brand and business stand out on Instagram:
- Step one will focus on how to introduce yourself to your audience. It all starts with your Instagram bio. Ask yourself, when was the last time you updated your bio? The seasons of our business change so our bio should reflect that. Session experts will share quick techniques to create a bio that connects, resonates and focuses on the ideal clients and customers you hope to serve.
- Step two will touch on your business message strategy and imagery. Gone are the days when you can get by with just posting a beautiful image. Users of the platform are looking for more than a pretty photo. Session experts will discuss some of our proven strategies for creating captions and accompanying images.
- Step three will touch on the importance of video as part of your social strategy, with a focus on getting started with Instagram Reels as well as the other video features that may best suit you and your audience.
