Growing Your Social Media Community

Written by Shannon Vogel on . Posted in Community Growth

One of the most frequently asked questions we get is: “How do I grow my social media community without paying for social advertising?!?”

Here’s a list to get you started:

  1. Tell your staff to mention or encourage customers to join your social communities.
  2. Add your social media icons and social links to everyone’s email signatures. Get your icons here: http://www.creatingyourspace.com/smicons
  3. Add your social icons to your business cards. Got too many to print? Try these: https://www.jakprints.com/favicards.html
  4. Put up signs in the showroom for your customers to see and as a reminder for your sales people. Put the signs anywhere a customer might have wait time. (*Comment or email us and we’ll send you a sign to print)
  5. Send out an email blast to your email database asking people to join your social community.
  6. Add your social icons or mention your social media sites in your traditional advertising. For example: At the end of a commercial, add “Find us on Facebook at facebook.com/yourusername.” *If you need help with the lingo, just ask!
  7. Add a line to your hold message about joining your social media sites. (they are already on hold, with time on their hands to like/follow you right then)
  8. Make sure your social icons are on your website and your mobile website.
  9. Add your social media icons on your Shop At Home vehicles or delivery trucks.
  10. Add your social icons to invoices, quotes or any other paper materials that leave your store!
