How to build your brand using social media - DEGOM Marketing

While social media rapidly continues to change and your brand with it. Social media algorithms prioritize content and the types of content users view when browsing, popularity of certain social platforms, brands need to recognize that businesses on social media are still built on communities and genuine human interaction.


Additionally, social media looks very different now than it did back in the day when chat rooms were the only factors of classifying a platform as a social one. People use social media for a few reasons, either to engage with our people/friends/family, stay informed, browse new products, get inspired and a HUGE factor is entertainment...or in other words escaping reality for just a bit.


With all this being said, being successful on social media requires humanizing your brand or anything you are selling. It always beats acting solely on a advertising mindset and your soul purpose is to sell. This logic will likely only become more important as social media shifts from mass communication style to focus more on one-to-one engagement.
