This is a free social media technique that is guaranteed to make an impression on your customers and followers and make your company social media channels memorable.

Upgrade to a business social media account
Depending on the social networking platform you are marketing on, you may be able to upgrade your profile (for free) to a business account. Instagram and Pinterest are the most common and popular platforms available at the moment that offer this at the moment.
If you want to add value to your company marketing, we highly recommend getting a free social media business account as it will add value to your company marketing and social media strategy, and best of all it’s completely free!
An Instagram business account will allow your profile to appear more sleek as it contains an array of contact options, ability to add your business sector, which builds trust, and offers free statistics, which can massively help understand your audience and customers behaviours better. This will allow you to build on your business social media strategy and take it one step further using the insights.
Free social media business accounts offer much more that you think so update your profile and take a look today.
Update your profile picture
Your company social media platforms are a representation of your business. So make sure your profile picture also represents the company well! Whether it is an image of your logo or a picture of your team, make sure it is recognisable, branded in some way and stands out against others. This is a simple and free social media upgrade you can make to your profile in a matter of seconds.
It may be worth updating your branding or developing a consistent brand if you are struggling with this, a service our partner Element Software can support with.
Whilst you are updating your profile picture on your business social media channels, you may as well upload a new cover image, banner image or other image-related areas that could do with a refresh.
