With Brooke from Villa Management
We’re big fans of using social media to really build and connect with our audience here at YO&O. The thing is, so many people have NFI how to actually use it. It isn’t a case of ‘here office admin, post a picture‘ which is what we see so many people doing. It actually takes a fair smack of work and understanding on:
- Seeing what your people do
- How they use the platform
- Who they’re engaging with
- What they like
- What they don’t like
So we decided to bring in an
Coincidentally, we met Brooke through Instagram. We loved the way she authentically connected with her people and there was no salesy crap. She is completely herself in every way and showcases how real conversation builds real engagement, which in turn can convert to cash money (we know, we’ve done 2 rounds of her membership and are about to sign up to round 3. More on that below). For now, let’s get stuck into it.
1. So Brooke, how do you think brands can really use social media as an advantage for their business?
Social Media provides a connection that a website/flyer/radio/tv/print ad never will as it allows for an instant connection between the business and the customer! That’s why it’s so special! AND IT’S FREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
2. In your opinion, how do you think the marketing landscape has changed and why do you think social media plays a big part in it?
Consumers are sick and tired of being advertised to and with the rise of reality TV, they’re wanting to get to know the people behind the brands more than ever. Social Media allows brands to share the BTS of their biz with their customers in real time to build up that relationship. Consumers want to be part of the process of your business growth like never before and that’s where Social Media comes in; to drive and maintain that constant connection.
*Preach it sista*
3. Where do you think most people go wrong with socials?
TOO MUCH SELLING! Nobody wants to be sold to. Stop focusing on a sale and start focusing on building a connection with your followers. Use your content to provide value in order to earn their trust. That trust is what will eventually drive the sale.
4. How can they build real relationships from social media?
Realise that your followers are real people who want to be heard and appreciated. Don’t ignore their comments.. don’t be
