Nathan Chan, CEO and Publisher of Foundr, joins the Social Pros Podcast to discuss powerful strategies for organic social media growth.
Reach Your Audience Where They Are
When you’re starting a business, you won’t find anyone who tells you that social media is optional. Regardless of your personal affinity for it, it’s undeniable that social media is an essential asset to growing your business.
That’s not to say that blindly firing out content on all social channels is the way to go. There is certainly strategy involved and not every avenue is right for your business. It might take a bit of testing and plenty of trial and error, but you can find where your audience is hanging out and focus your efforts.
That’s the idea presented by Nathan Chan, CEO and Publisher of the aptly titled Foundr magazine. He’s no amateur when it comes to social media strategy, having grown Foundr’s Instagram following from 0 to over 500,000 in just one year! That’s no coincidence either; he specifically chose Instagram after running multiple tests across various platforms and discovering where his audience is.
In This Episode
- How to strategically grow an organic following through Instagram
- How diverse content formats can help you leverage influence
- Why being good at sales is just as important as being good at social
- How to choose the right social channel to focus on
- Why live events can be extremely challenging
- Why life skills can be more valuable than traditional education/work experience
