Do you feel like you’re pouring your heart and soul into Instagram and other socials, but getting nowhere? Are you spending hours creating and posting content and getting minimal return?

Okay, so there may be several reasons why you’re not selling as much through social media and it’s hard to pinpoint exactly without seeing your strategy but, you need to remember that social media is just that and your main focus is to sway your audience through social media to your website where you can get their full attention and convert them.

Having said that, social media is a very powerful tool for reaching and engaging with customers, but it is a very crowded and competitive space.

Have a read on some points I’ve addressed for you below, you might just need to tweak your strategy to get it on track.

You may not be giving your audience enough information on your posts.

Provide educational content such as how-to guides, tutorials, and industry insights. This will help them learn new things and expand their knowledge, which in turn builds trust and shows you know your industry, leading to becoming an authoritative in your field.

Create entertaining content such as memes, quizzes, and interactive polls. This will keep them engaged and coming back for more, got to have some fun.

Share customer testimonials, case studies, or success stories. This will also help to build trust and showcase the value of your product or service.

Always be responsive to your audience. Engage with them by responding to comments, messages, and reviews. This will help to build a sense of community and encourage more engagement. It also shows you care and appreciate your audience.

You may be showing all features and no benefits.

Show your audience how your product or service can make their life better.

Highlight specific ways in which your product or service solves a problem or improves a certain aspect of their life.

Use customer testimonials and success stories to show how others have benefited from your product or service. This will help potential customers envision themselves using it and experiencing similar results.

Always be transparent about the features and limitations of your product or service. This will help to build trust and credibility with your audience.

Are you posting random things just for the hell of posting?

Please don’t do this. If you start confusing and alienating your audience with unrelated content, you can kiss them goodbye, you need to keep the connection with you and your brand.

It is important to keep your social media content aligned with your brand and consistent with the message you want to convey.

Use a consistent brand voice and visual style across all of your social media channels. This will help to create a cohesive and recognizable brand identity.

Use analytics to track engagement and adjust your content strategy as needed.

Your website is slow to load or looks terrible on mobile.

Almost everyone on socials is viewing it on their mobile, if your website is not mobile friendly, too long to load or they have to zoom in to press buttons then they are going to simply exit out.

With the majority of internet traffic coming from mobile devices, it is important to ensure that your website is optimized for mobile viewing.

To improve your website’s performance and mobile user experience, you can:

Use a responsive design that adjusts the layout of your website to fit the screen size of different devices.

Optimize images and other media files to reduce page load times.

Test your website on different mobile devices and browsers to identify and fix any issues with functionality or usability.

Use Google’s PageSpeed Insights to check your website’s load time and to get suggestions on how to improve.

Make sure your website is fast and accessible to all by following web standards, such as accessibility and web performance standards.

By addressing these issues, you can improve your website’s performance and mobile user experience, which will help to keep your audience engaged and coming back for more.

And finally, which can make a huge difference to your bottom line is…..Your followers are not the right people.

If your followers aren’t buying from you, it might just be that they have no need for what you do or sell. They may have followed you for a completely different reason or maybe they’re just following you from a previous viral post you did.

If your followers are not interested in what you have to offer, they will not be likely to engage with your content or make a purchase.

To ensure that your followers are the right people, you can:

Clearly define your target audience and tailor your content to their interests and needs.

Use social media analytics to track engagement and understand who your most active followers are.

Use targeted advertising and influencer marketing to reach new audiences that are likely to be interested in your products or services.

Engage with your followers by responding to comments, messages, and reviews. This will help to build a sense of community and encourage more engagement.

Use social listening tools to track mentions of your brand and related keywords, in order to understand how people, perceive you, and what they expect from you.

Use retargeting to reach previous website visitors who showed an interest in your products/services.

By focusing on reaching and engaging the right audience, you can build a loyal following that is more likely to be interested in what you have to offer.

These are just some areas that may be lacking but if you start working on these points, you should see a big improvement in your bottom line.

Done right, you can grow your business, crush sales and rival any of your competitors.
