Some of the most often post types you’ll see on social media are inspirational quotes. We love quotes. But are they an effective content source for your business?
The answer is yes, when used appropriately and sparingly – quotes can really engage your client base.
That said, whenever you use quotes, they should be directly supporting your business brand, mission, and vision. It’s not enough to generate a lot of “likes” if those people aren’t interested in what you have to offer. Getting “likes” is a type of vanity metric – it feels good, but it’s not contributing to the bottom line. Don’t just share random thoughts, or post quotes that appeal to you if there’s no strategy behind them. Like any other type of content (blog, email marketing, etc.) whatever you post has to support your brand purpose and the 'why' of what you offer – why you are unique, why clients should choose you over someone else, what makes you special (and you are!). Then your inspiration has a purpose: it’s targeted and focused and aligned to your brand ME.
Tips for Using Quotes:
1. If using images, use your own original images when you can. It sends a stronger message and helps people get to know you and identify with your brand.
2. Only use quotes that support your unique brand “ME” purpose and mission.
3. Don’t overuse. Use them in a strategic way, to support your other content and marketing message. Keep it strong and on target.
