Establish Yourself on LinkedIn
LinkedIn is a great opportunity for you to show off your brand and establish professional credibility.

Be Strategic in Your Social Media Efforts
Don’t try to spend all day concerning yourself with your social media efforts; if you do, you won’t get any work done anyway and all of your efforts will be lost. Start with two or three social channels making sure they include your target audience and build outward from there. This will ensure consistency and your ability to stay active on your social media channels without becoming overwhelmed.
Develop a Strong Content Strategy
The best way to level the playing field and stand out from everyone else is to develop a strong content strategy. Your strategy should include how often you post as well what type of content you post. Remember, content doesn’t just mean the written word, it can also include videos that you post on YouTube. Play to your strengths and make the decision as to how you will post to your audience and then develop a strategy that works for you.
Schedule Time for Social Media
A strong content strategy is a start, but it’s only effective if you schedule enough time to execute it properly. Be sure to consider when and how you will create and post the content and commit to it. If you are unable to commit enough time to your social media campaign, hiring a social media management firm could be your best option.
Incorporate the Human Element
By incorporating the human element into your social media campaign, you can better relate to your target audience. Social media is about people, relationships and the common bonds we form so show off your personality, share some things about yourself and tell others what makes you and your business unique.
Many times, businesses will become less and less effective in their social media campaigns because they lack direction or they just don’t know where to start. Following these simple tips will send you in the right direction and make you much more efficient at establishing your brand online.
