Copywriting hacks for social media marketing

Whether you are inheriting the management of existing social media platforms or setting things up from scratch, getting the basic copywriting principles right first is essential for success

Social media plays a vital role in today’s marketing and communication strategy for businesses of every shape, size, and industry. Thanks to our increasing reliance on and usage of technology, the way people perceive a brand’s message ultimately affects their decision to make a purchase. No longer are they convinced by what a brand says about its products – instead, opinions are formed by global information gained through online and offline platforms.

Getting the right approach through the relevant social media platforms, therefore, helps to create a voice for a business, important to the overall brand image.
