Times have been difficult lately for everyone involved. Let’s talk about what you can do for your friends and colleagues in business.
Right now, it’s even more important to support others that are finding it difficult, and there are many ways we can do this. One quick and easy way, is through social media…which is exactly where everyone is hanging out.
We all know what the power of social media can do – when people see something you have taken the time to endorse yourself, it not only helps people out by keeping them top of mind with others, but improves the algorithm and increases the trust factor as well.
When you like, comment and share other people’s posts, they are more likely to reach new prospects who may not have known about your friends business before.
The more visibility you can provide, the easier it will be to gain momentum when the time comes once again. Simply commenting on a post using a few words and some emojis encourages is all it takes to spread the word quickly.
Another great way to encourage visibility is to tag a friend.
Tagging a friend who could use a particular service, or who would enjoy a post can help a small business extend their reach. With more and more businesses adapting their own business structures to accommodate more of a social presence while working remotely, creating more engagement will allow those businesses to continue to grow and thrive.
Today, I want you to do the 2, 2, and 2 rule. (Yes, I completely made that up ;))
2, 2 & 2 rule
The 2, 2 & 2 rule is a simple method that will increase the visibility to new and potential customers.
Here’s how you do it.
- Take the time and share 2 posts to your network that could help out another business.
- Comment on 2 posts from someone else’s business, and last but not least,
- Tag 2 friends in business on a post that they could benefit from.
By extending a hand for two minutes a day to help others without expecting anything in return, you will help others stay top of mind while offering friends new businesses to check out and list as their own favorites. It’s a win-win!
Try it an let me know in the comments how you make out! If you need more help to clarify how YOU can become more visible, reach out – I have a few ideas that might just be perfect for you.
