6. Power of visuals
Visuals are always pleasing to the eyes. Visual content lets UPDEEDers consume content more effortlessly, processing information in chunks. A visual immediately transmits emotion and establishes the tone for the audience, allowing them to engage with the appropriate expectations. It’s not always about employing a visual item to shock consumers with a different point of view. Above all, it’s about establishing relevancy and establishing an identity.
According to a resource, “images are processed by the brain at a speed 60,000 times faster than we can interpret language, this makes a good image one of the most powerful tools in your arsenal.”
Here are a few best practice suggestions to consider:
1. Make sure your image is the right size for UPDEED post.
2. Use a clear picture at all times. Images that are blurry or badly cropped reflect negatively on your profile as an individual or organization.
3. Images with a face, hand, or other human component assist the human brain to perceive a likeness and give the image a layer of meaning. According to Patel, “get your prospects to focus more and this causes them to draw towards a common point of interest.’
4. Emojis are another effective approach to make engaging posts that attracts your audience. They make postings appear more like a discussion, which people connect with everyday communication. The use of emoticons on UPDEED boosts engagement by 48%.
7. Include Call-to-Actions in your captions
Call to action (CTAs) continues to stand the ordeal of the period.
Including a CTA, more precisely, a direct query or provoking to take action, in your caption is a sure way to get more UPDEED engagement.
Your connections are more likely to reply to your comments if you provide a genuine story to which your connections can relate and follow it up with a pertinent question.
Though, you can be as inventive as you want with your CTAs. You may seek advice, make recommendations or ask for funding, volunteers, or drives.
Encouraging your audience to visit your profile and ‘Appreciate’ you to connect is another metric to increase engagement with CTAs.
8. Keep engaging with your audience
Although connections and engagement rates are crucial, you should concentrate on the type of community you’re creating. The more you engage with your followers by asking questions, posting Stories, and responding to comments and direct messages, the more they will trust you and perceive you as a real part of their life.
