The beginning of the year is a great time to review and brainstorm on new ways to build on your B2B social media strategy. Nowadays, every generation is using social media—it’s is a daily habit for most of us. It helps us keep up to date, communicate, and can also provide a little escape from the day-to-day.
Below, we discuss what’s new for 2020, as well as tips and tricks to get your social media imagery looking professional, and on point. We’ve included image sizes for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and LinkedIn to help you stay current for 2020.
Tips for the year ahead:
Imagery and video still prevail
Video is the most engaging format across social media channels in 2020. Video tells your brand story quickly, making it easily digestible by consumers. Users are attracted to the movement and stick around to see how your brand story unfolds. Written content takes longer for our brains to process, so while content is important when it comes to first impressions and telling a story quickly, imagery and video are still dominating the world of B2B social media in 2020.
Don’t feel obligated to be on every social media network
What works on one network, might not on another. So, have a game plan for what types of content you’ll share on each platform. Each platform has its own guidelines, different post types and different audiences. Doing this will help you stay true to your brand, and better establish your social media voice and tone.
