#1 Leveraging Links with Visual Content
If your main social media goal is to convert… then why are you still sleeping on the power of linking? Visual content can act as a “gateway” to more valuable content.

This secret will undoubtably help you drive more traffic back to your website, products, services and more!
#2 The 80/20 Rule
Your team is posting every day on social media… but how often are they directly interacting with your customers and other brands? You should only promote your business and own content 20% of the time, while the other 80% is all for interacting. Not many brands know about the 80/20 rule, but once they do, they never go back. Follow this rule of thumb, and we promise your content will soar with success!
#3 Actionable Hashtags
We all know and love hashtags… but are you truly using them to their full potential? The most powerful hashtags are ones that build communities around specific actions. This tip is great for running campaigns, hosting contests, sharing content and even cross-pollinating your message across platforms. When using hashtags, actionable ones are always the way to go!
#4 Twitter Testing
You use Twitter… but are you using it to test out content ideas? If not, you’re missing out.
