These days, social media is an automatic part of your marketing plan. But can you get more out of the hours you put into this constantly changing landscape?
Yes, and it starts with collaboration.
Social media has completely changed the way we communicate with one another. It has allowed us to connect and work with people around the world. Creating collaborative posts with other social media profiles is a smart move. All parties bring something to the table, and all parties benefit from the partnership.
Before you reach out to any other channel on the social-sphere, think about your brand.
Who shares your brand values?
Who reaches the audience you want to reach?
Who is using their social media effectively?
They can be a business across the street – or across the country. Follow them and start up conversations online. The more you build up relationships with different accounts, the more partnership opportunities will arise.
Not sure where to start? Don’t overthink it. The first one can be for practice. Maybe do a fun office outing and show off your internal culture? Or, partner with a vendor you often work with?
Still on the fence?
Here are several reasons why you ought to work with others on your social media channels.
1. Increased Reach: This is one of the most important benefits. You’re always trying to reach new people. When you collaborate with others, you get to tap into their audience. Through cross-promotion, you can increase your audience and reach people who might not have otherwise found you.
