Have you ever considered how spending time on social media can benefit your business?
It’s no question that social media rules the world, with over 4.2 billion daily social media users worldwide. Having a good social media presence is oftentimes the best first impression a brand can make. Having social channels that accurately represent your company's voice is not only the best way to drive new business but makes working for your company highly attractive.
Take Tate McRae for example, she understood the power of social media when it came to launching her career as a musician. She became a Gen Z household name when her song ‘that way’ had a resurgence of virality on TikTok, earning itself over 200 million Spotify plays.
Tate went on to become the youngest person ever to be named by Forbes on their 30 Under 30 list in the music category and now has over 19 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Tate is a perfect example of how marketing your brand through social media, in this day and age, can be the key to success. She continues to pre-launch her songs on TikTok, giving snippets that go viral before the song is even published, something we see more and more artists doing.
200 million Spotify plays might not be your social media end goal, but having a social presence can make all the difference for your growing business. Exposure is everything, so here are three reasons social media is the key to helping your brand stand out. Don’t just take our word for it 😉
- Subtlety Of Subconscious Selling
