Best Social Media Tactics for Your Painting Business

Cumulatively, social media platforms house more than 2 billion active users, making social media marketing one of the most valuable tools painting businesses can harness to attract new business. A strong social media presence will not only help you gain quality leads but also allow you to build relationships that increase customer satisfaction and loyalty. If your painting company hasn’t taken advantage of social media platforms, it’s imperative that you do so.

If you own a painting company and are struggling to gain the lucrative leads that drive profit growth, you should consider consulting a skilled business coach. A skilled business coach can help you implement an effective marketing strategy to grow your business. Outlined below are the best social media tactics to use for your painting business.

Know Your Target Audience

If your social media strategy is not tailored to your target audience, it isn’t going to get you very far. Before you launch a social media campaign, you should take some time to research your target audience. To understand your target audience, think about the persona of your ideal customer. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Who is most likely to use my painting services?
  • What are the demographics of my ideal customer?
  • What are my customer’s interests?

Answering these questions will help you streamline your content approach to meet the preferred communication strategies of your ideal customer.

Use a Social Media Scheduling Program

For a social media marketing strategy to be effective, you must post frequently. Social media user’s feeds are saturated with posts. If you want your painting business to remain at the forefront of your customer’s minds, you should be posting frequently to a variety of social platforms.

Most small businesses don’t have the time to constantly post. If your painting business lacks the time to devote to social media platforms, you might want to consider using social media scheduling software. These programs allow you to schedule your posts ahead of time. Instead of posting every day and risking potential disturbances in your workflow, you can schedule weeks of content ahead of time.

Engage With Your Followers

Ideally, your social media posts will be accompanied by audience engagement in the form of shares, likes, and comments. When your followers interact with your content, you should make an effort to engage with them. For example, if you create a post that poses a question to your followers and they respond, you should reply to their comments. Engaging with your followers will help you build and strengthen your customer relationships. When you make the effort to engage with your customers and followers on social media, it sends a message that you value their business.

“Our first campaign reached $60,041.98! That's a huge percentage of our annual sales! You don't pick the peach orchard just one time. Different peaches ripen every day. Thanks for encouraging us to keep after it!”

“15 requests for quotes and closed and/or completed $23,000 of work and I still have a few more to do. Conservatively this campaign will net $25,000 in found money in the first 45 days! Thanks Brandon!”

“This year has been the biggest year of growth for us. We're double where we were last year. I realized the real money in this business is in the marketing of the services - not the doing of the services.”
