(Luckily you also get a blog with Go-do.it) Try making a showcase out of your products and give your customers more in depth information. Link them directly back to your sales page. Or take your products on a test drive and show how people could use them day to day.

Contests!

Running a contest can help raise awareness around your products and help extend your reach. Hold a contest and get people to follow and reposting your competition can really help drive traffic. It can even help add more followers to your social media allowing you content to reach even more people.

Create a social media strategy!

Each social network can be a different nut to crack so only concentrate on ones that you feel will be best for your brand. Instagram the social media giant have introduced a way you can create shoppable posts. You can create amazing images of your products then link them through to your site with a simple link. You could even create a shop story on your profile so new customers can easily find your products. Facebook and Twitter are great for raising brand awareness and can be real revenue drivers through ads. Even pinterest has its own way to sell products now. It really is about experimenting and seeing what brings back the best results, taking that information and building a plan!

User generated content!

Use a specific hashtag on social media so when customers get their products or use a class you can find what they are saying quickly. Then you can repost your customers’ experience over social media. This helps to further grow your community but also gives your customers the sense of being a part of your brand!
