Designing for social media

With social media becoming more and more popular, it is important for businesses to keep up with trends and stay visible on social media. And with more and more platforms starting to move towards some visual content, having a great design on social media is going to become more and more important. Your content, of course, is what matters, but if your posts are not appealing to potential customers or lack some type of design consistency, then you and your business are going to be lost in the mix. Even if you don’t have an in-house designer, you can still learn by yourself or even follow the tips I am about to give you to help make sure that your posts stand out in a feed while still looking great to attract new customers.

What is it?


Some people may not know what social media design is, and that is okay. Social media design is creating visuals for some social media platforms, such as Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok. This is going to include making some posts, posting stories, creating profile images and graphics, and even some other visuals to help create a constant content strategy. Social media design is a very important part of social media because it is going to help you create some brand recognition and will help add to the overall aesthetic of your page or profile. This simple tool can even help make your posts stand out when the feed is a tad crowded. You want to try to capture the attention of your potential customers.


Have a strategy.


Before you jump into anything, you need to have a well-thought-out plan to make sure you understand what could happen and what you are aiming for. Without a strategy, you may mess up what the purpose is or even the narrative of what you are trying to achieve. All companies have a brand identity and some type of visual language on social media. Some companies just have a more fluent social media strategy than others. Most of these companies are going to know what kind of audience they are trying to reach while also knowing how to market to each platform. It is important to note that every platform is different and attracts different kinds of attention while also using different skills to grab the attention of potential customers.
