Summer in a Post-Covid World

Opportunities to Return to Public Life, Grow your Social Media, and Find Jobs After Graduation

The Continued Importance of Remote Work

It is not too early to envision the post-pandemic environment, as more people start receiving the COVID vaccine and CDC guidelines begin to allow for a return to a more pre-pandemic lifestyle. As businesses are beginning to welcome more in-person interactions, there are many who remain working remotely or have adopted a hybrid solution. A March 2021 survey by the American Psychological Association found that about half of the respondents feel uneasy about returning to in-person interaction once the pandemic ends. The pandemic fostered a greater adoption of this business solution, and it is one that will likely keep being an option for many.

H2 Marketing Consultants has always had a remote business strategy. We stay true to the fact that remote work can be efficiently accomplished with the correct leadership and work ethic. H2 CEO and founder, Heather Hellman, understands exactly what it takes to run a one-stop-shop, remote agency and is constantly seeking new ways to improve her business. As we recognize the world will likely stay in hybrid mode for a while, keeping our virtual skills sharp is of the utmost importance to us. We are grateful that we can use technology to our advantage to interact with co-workers, clients, and our audiences.

How to Grow Your Social Media Following this Summer

Summer has already proven to be safer during the pandemic than the wintertime. Currently, a little more than 15.8 percent of the population have been fully immunized. What we know so far is that fully vaccinated people can safely gather with other vaccinated people without masks. This means people will most likely start to feel more comfortable attending larger events this summer such as concerts, vacations, weddings, etc. This gives people the opportunity to grow their social media followings as they start attending events and doing more activities.

If you want to increase social media engagement on your pages, you’ll need to grow your followers and reach. The more followers you have, the more engagement you’re likely to receive. The most common way to grow your follower count is to spend money on advertising. At H2, we are determined to help your business gain more followers and increase your social media exposure. If you’re looking to increase your engagement, we have constructed a list of a few tips to help you reach your social media goals:

1. Be Unique
For lack of better words, don’t be boring. When it comes to Instagram caption ideas, look beyond the trending verbiage and the monotony of your competitors’ posts. Think innovatively and come up with a caption you have never seen before. This will easily set your content apart which is likely to increase your engagement, as people become drawn to your one-of-a-kind content. It is essential to be relatable and informative through creative and/or humorous means. By doing this, your audience will be drawn to your unique content rather than scrolling past captions they have seen before.

2. Use Event-Related Hashtags and Geotags
As more people will be attending large events, this summer is the perfect opportunity to use relevant hashtags and geotags to increase your content exposure. This ensures you are reaching as many people on the social media platform as possible. Event-related hashtags involve events taking place in your industry or location. These hashtags can include well-known events in your local area, country, or the world that are on the minds of the masses at a given time. When selecting a geotag, we encourage you to choose larger cities rather than towns with smaller populations. For example, it may be in your best interest to geotag St. Louis rather than St. Peters in order to reach a larger number of users. Be mindful that you are staying consistent and hash tagging your geotagged location as well.

3. Participate in Popular Conversations
Whether it be for your personal or business social media platforms, it is crucial to stay relevant. One way to get involved is through commenting and responding to trending accounts. Take advantage of the fact that certain topics trend every single day, so join in on the conversation. Jumping on trending topics can be beneficial to your daily social media marketing efforts. Marketers have long used social media trends to connect with followers and join in on relevant conversations happening on a global scale, so get your name out there! The correct type of involvement can signal significant rewards.
