SOCIAL-ETC by Thulani Ndzotyana

Social Media is a place where our brands can become businesses. If you have an audience and great content you can actively work on social media, as a brand.

We all easily gravitate towards a certain social media app. As I wrote that I am sure your mind went to one. I love Instagram, usually. I’ve always felt it’s an easy app I can keep up with and it is generally positive.

Other people like TikTok whilst others might prefer Facebook or Twitter. I’m here to ask if you’re as consistent on your favourite app as your least favourite app.

It is important to reach different audiences on all your apps. Fortunately, we have insights that gather our engagement. Therefore, utilise your insights but remember to rue consistent on all your apps.

Curate content for the different apps, using the correct frame sizing and jump on the correct trends on that app to grow your audience.

Don’t be afraid to do something outside your comfort zone, like creating a reel or TikTok video you wouldn’t usually do.

Social Media has the power to open doors for you, treat your brand like a business.
