Social media is an untapped channel for finance professionals who want to connect with new customers and stay top-of-mind with current customers. Your opportunity to build a niche brand on social media is unrivalled. You need a smart strategy, consistent approach and high-quality content that communicates your personal brand.
Here are some frequently asked questions to help you understand how Social Broker works
1. Which social media platforms do you specialise in?
Our speciality is square, Instagram-ready social media posts and captions. Our rationale is that of all the social media channels, Instagram is the one with the best audience-building potential. This means your posts will be seen by more prospective customers. We also produce content for Facebook, LinkedIn, and your website. All content can also be reposted to Twitter and Google My Business.
2. Why aren't all the posts finance-related?
Have you ever been to a dinner party where the most fascinating, likeable and relatable person there was the one who talked about their job non-stop? Nope, didn’t think so. It’s important not to treat your social media accounts as your own private billboard. We should be bringing the social element back to social media, which means showcasing your expertise, values and personality via other topics that your target audience will find interesting. We produce content on lifestyle topics ranging from real estate to interior design to entrepreneurism. Once you’ve subscribed to a Social Broker social media package, you’ll be able to select which topics you want us to cover.
3. What happens if I'm not happy with the content?
For us, the work isn’t complete until you tell us you love it. The process we undertake is geared towards creating content that you’ll be delighted with. We make an effort to understand your business, brand, and value proposition – ensuring that what we produce is a reflection of who you are. This involves a branding exercise to define your brand persona, messaging and themes.
4. How do we work together?
While we’ve made it easy to purchase online, we’re not just a click and pay type of service. We are always happy to jump on a call or Zoom meeting, and – once the world goes back to ‘normal’ – we’d love to welcome you to our Melbourne-based office. It all depends on how you want to work together. Whether you’re hands on or not, we always provide you with a copy of the content for approval before we schedule the automatic posting. Some brokers provide reviews, case studies and photos for us to incorporate into your content, while others sit back and leave it to us – you can have as much or as little input as you like.
5. Will another broker have the same social media content as me?
No. We have over 20 themes, which we customise to your brand – or we can create something from scratch. By the time you’ve undertaken our branding exercise, and we’ve spent time getting to know you and your business, your Social Broker content is unique and distinctive. You’ll be assigned your own content calendar – for both social media and your blog content – so we’ll never have 100s of brokers posting the same content at the same time.
