Social media branding: Tips for creating a cohesive presence across all platforms

Social media branding is serious business.

It’s important to create a cohesive presence across all platforms so that people recognise your brand and trust it. But let’s be honest, sometimes social media can feel like a circus. The endless change in algorithms, trends changing every minute of every day, and keeping up with the world can be stressful enough.

So, here are some tips to help you navigate the world of social media branding.

Choose your colours wisely

Colour is an important part of branding, but let’s not go overboard. Just because you love purple doesn’t mean your brand needs to look like Barney threw up all over it. And if you’re tempted to use rainbow colours, just remember that you’re not a unicorn. Stick to a few colours and use them consistently.


Don’t be afraid to use emojis

Emojis are a great way to add some personality to your brand but be careful not to overdo it. If you’re using more emojis than actual words, it might be time to take a step back and rethink your strategy. And please, for the love of all that is holy, don’t use the poop emoji. It’s never appropriate.


Keep it real

People want to connect with brands that are authentic, so don’t be afraid to show some personality. But be careful not to be too casual. You don’t want to come across as unprofessional. So, while it’s okay to make a joke or share a funny meme, don’t forget that you’re representing your brand.


Use hashtags, but not too many

Hashtags are a great way to get your content in front of new people, but there’s a fine line between using them effectively and overusing them. If you’re using more hashtags than actual words, it’s time to reevaluate. And please, don’t use hashtags that are completely irrelevant to your content. #nofilter on a picture of your cat is just confusing.


Don’t be afraid to mix it up

While it’s important to have a consistent presence across all platforms, that doesn’t mean you have to post the same thing on every platform. Mix it up and tailor your content to each platform. Just remember to keep your overall brand in mind.

So social media branding doesn’t have to be boring. Have some fun with it, but don’t forget that you’re representing your brand. Choose your colours wisely, use emojis, keep it real, use hashtags effectively, and mix it up. And above all, don’t take yourself too seriously. After all, social media is supposed to be fun!
