4 Growth Hacking techniques for social media 👋
1️⃣ Utilize vertical video content:
Short-form vertical video is currently taking the internet by storm and playing favor to each social media’s algorithm. It’s currently the best performing content and will routinely garner you the most views.

2️⃣ Use Answer the Public:
This site by Niel Patel let’s you input your niche/service/industry and then get a list of search terms people are using to find answers to questions in your niche. From here, you can build a content plan with titles and topics that answer these questions.
3️⃣ Repurpose and cross-promote your content:
Save time and maintain engagement by sharing snippets of your video content across various social media platforms, driving followers from one platform to another. A Youtube video can be turned into a blog post. A blog post can be cut up in several posts for LinkedIn and Facebook. The list goes on.
4️⃣ Offer exclusive lead magnets:
Create enticing lead magnets, such as ebooks or online events, to captivate your followers and attract those matching your target audience. The trick here is to make sure your lead magnet isn’t some long, drawn-out PDF style book, but rather a “tool” or “resource”.
For example, if the problem your lead magnet solves is “How to develop a content marketing strategy”, then let your lead magnet be “My top 5 social media post templates you can copy and use right now”.
It’s a tool, a resource. It’s something tangible that will shortcut your customer’s journey to their desired result.
If you’ve spent any amount of time in the internet learning how to build your brand in social media, you’ve likely been overwhelmed with people telling you to create “authority posts” in which you hand out free value to your audience. Consequently, you appear to be an authority in your niche.
This is a great practice and in all honesty, it works quite well for establishing you as an expert. Just don’t let your newfound expert “status” get to your head.
Lex Fridman has officially warned you …
If you call yourself an expert, you're not an expert.
Learning requires humility.
