Why You Should Create Memes For Your Brand

Memes are everywhere, and you can’t scroll down on Facebook without seeing one, or you’ve even clicked Like or shared it with someone who could use a laugh or can relate.

I know I have!

Have you ever thought about creating your own Memes?

If you haven’t, you might want to consider it. Why?

Because memes have the chance to go viral, and if anything, shared over and over. It’s a good way to get your brand or business out there since the meme would be attached to your social media platform – whether it is your Facebook page, Instagram post or Twitter post.

But how do you make your own memes, and how can you guarantee that they’ll be shared?

Memes are just another form of content in the form of a video or photo but a shorter form. This type of content is short and has to be relatable to your audience in order to get engagement.

So if you’re a mom blogger or have a brand where the target audience is moms, you would want to create memes that moms can relate to.

For example:

This is the meme I created for my blog, The Mama Resource. The caption is simple, and the video is cute, so I decided to give it a try and create it as a meme to share on my Facebook page, as well as an Instagram post. Moms definitely can relate to their toddler being a bit noisy when going out to eat!

As far as guaranteed shares, it really depends on so many parameters. A great way to get your meme out there is to share it on your own social media accounts and with your friends. When sharing on your own social media accounts, you want to make sure that you’re applying the right hashtags (if you’re sharing on Instagram and Twitter) and for Facebook, you might want to consider boosting the post so you can have even more people see it that are in your target audience that don’t already like your FB page.

A great tool to create memes is through this app called Meme + Generator Memes Creator.

It’s pretty simple to use and you can add your own watermark to make sure it is tagged as your own meme. That’s what I used to create the meme above.

How To Promote Your Business In Facebook Groups Without Feeling Overwhelmed

Using Facebook groups can lead to more clients and customers. Learn how you can promote your business in Facebook groups without feeling overwhelmed.

We all know about how powerful Facebook is to get the word out about our businesses. It really is all about engaging and creating relationships with one another. After all, we tend to do business with people we know and trust right? When it comes to your website and social media presence, we put our message out there and respond to comments.  But, it still isn’t enough. The more personable you are, the more likely you will get business from that person you interacted with.

Enter Facebook groups!

Facebook groups are a great way to interact with people on subjects you enjoy. There are groups about pretty much everything. Just do a search, and you’ll likely find a Facebook group you think you can relate to. You will realize that there are so many groups, you may not know what to do first. You may even join a ton of groups only to feel overwhelmed and lost.

Facebook groups also a great way to learn from others and collaborate too! Just don’t be spammy, because most groups don’t allow that. Each group has their own rules so make sure you abide by them, otherwise you could be removed from the group.

Here are some tips to start using Facebook groups effectively:

  1. Pick 3 groups that relate to your business and make sure they are active. Good groups have daily or weekly prompt posts that are designed for people to participate in conversation.
  2. Choose 1 group to focus your efforts on and start asking questions or answering questions already in there that you know the answer to.
  3. Try to connect with at least 1 person a day in the group and get to know about them and their problems, goals, business, etc.
  4. Set a time each day to participate in groups with a reasonable time limit.
  5. Take note of promo days in groups where you can promote your content.
