12 questions to social media experts at Sendible

If you publish as much as possible, the content of your social media will be more visible. Right? According to Veronika Baranovska, Inbound Marketing Manager at Sendible, most social platforms will penalize you for your frequent publications. Frequent publication does not translate into higher commitment. In fact, by adopting some key tactics, you can see more social success by posting less, says Baranovska. Veronika and the Sendible team - a social media management solution - shared these tactics, as well as ways to creatively couple your social media strategy with your email marketing, during our recent interview with them. . 1.

To break through, you have to stand out from the crowd. It will take time to learn how your brand can do it, but you can start with these four basic principles: Set goals for your social media plan and align it with the goals of your business . Always focus on one goal at a time to get the best results. Decide which networks to focus on. Less, that's more, and it's impossible to have multiple flawless flows without a great team or agency behind you. Stay true to your brand. The wrong tone can alienate your target…
