Organic brand reach on social media has become a real challenge for most marketers. Platforms like Facebook, Instagram or Linkedin are blocking organic reach to generate more advertising revenue. Brands should focus on these 2 strategies:
- Getting native branding in their social media posts like people wearing branded t-shirts
- Having real people post about your company and tagging you.
The Merchandise Essentials solution.
Merchandise is a great accelerator to create more natively branded content for your brand. When people are wearing your brand you can tell stories about the people, and have the brand really stand out. Having people wear your merchandise also creates a strong feeling of community and togetherness.
Getting as much good merchandise in the world as possible also increases the chance people will wear it on social media. Imagine your team posting holiday pictures wearing your branded caps. These kinds of posts generate massive organic reach for your brand.
