Social media and Kardashians go together like peanut butter and jelly, and their social media presence has contributed significantly to their success in connecting with and growing their audiences. So, what exactly is it about their media postings that gain so much attention?
Here are the 5 things they’re doing right:
1. Locate your audience
For Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie and Kendall their audiences are primarily on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. However, look at the demographics and engagement levels on each of these platforms and determine if they are worth the time and investment if your audience is not actively engaged.
2. Don’t just post about yourself
Looking at the Kardashian Clan’s social media presence, their posts are related to news articles, new or upcoming product launches, and promoting shared interests (such as fitness, shopping or makeup). Given that your audience may not want to see 4-5 posts daily of selfies, provide content that may be a shared interest between you and the audience.
3. Link your profiles together
Ensure your audience can follow you on all channels, so link and display your snapchat username to your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages and visa versa. By allowing followers to choose their favorite form of social media, it increases awareness and the odds of having consistent engagement.
4. Be platform specific
Ensure that if you have followers on all your social media sites, they are not seeing the same content. Mix it up a little and post different content on different sites!
5. Find your voice
The Kardashians are not afraid to post a meme about themselves or each other, as long as it follows their voice. Find the voice for your company, and post content according to your values.
In the end, these 5 tips from the Kardashians will help you utilize social media for your business (or your personal profile), but no guarantee that you’ll gain 88.9 million followers. That kind of social media fame is reserved for dedicated selfie celebrities.
