Organic Reach Isn't What It Used to Be

Remember the good old days when your Facebook posts reached a wide audience without much effort?


Spoiler alert: those days are long gone...


Social media platforms have significantly reduced the organic reach of posts, pushing businesses and individuals to invest in paid advertising to gain visibility. It's a harsh reality, but it's essential to understand the game has changed.


Algorithms Rule the Social Media Kingdom

Behind the curtain, algorithms hold immense power over what people see on their feed. Platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter use complex algorithms to determine which posts to show each user.


It's not just about the number of likes or followers; these algorithms analyze our behavior, interests, and previous engagement to curate a personalized feed. Understanding this can help you tailor your content to increase your chances of visibility.


It's All About the Content Strategy

Posting all willy-nilly won't cut it anymore. Successful social media is built on a well-thought-out content strategy.


Without a solid content strategy, your efforts may strike out.


Authenticity Trumps Perfection

While there's no denying the importance of high-quality visuals and polished content, authenticity holds greater value. Followers crave genuine connections and real stories.


Followers interact with accounts they relate to or with content that resonates with them personally.


Can you relate to everyone? No. And you shouldn't try to!


Determine who your ideal audience is and create connections with those who want (or need) to hear from you.


Trying to be overly perfect or polished can come across as inauthentic and detached. Social media experts recognize the power of vulnerability and personal connection, so don't be afraid to show your human side.


These "secrets" are not rocket science. But, they are imperative in understanding how to increase your social media presence.


Remember, building a successful online brand requires more than meets the eye. Be strategic, authentic, and adaptable to stay ahead of the ever-evolving social media landscape.
