How to Create Emotions on Social Media

Community Managers can not limit their daily brand promotion work through social networks to just schedule posts. They also need to interact, be thankful, answer questions, generate topics for discussion and intervene when necessary. In order to generate engagement they need to convey emotion. I will give on this post a few clues on how to do this:

1.-Use punctuation:

Exclamation marks to show surprise, joy, gratitude, optimism. Question marks to generate discussion, to obtain information from your followers.

2.-Use images that convey positive feelings:

Tenderness (puppies for example), philosophical (with phrases), enthusiasm (with pictures of landscapes, travel), humour (with comics). Try to provoke feelings that make the product get associated with the values that you want to express.

3.-Be a good host of your page:

Welcome new followers and thank fidelity. Make contests and promotions. Segmentate and personalise your messages.

4.-Use emoticons:

They can help you make sense of a sentence and really convey the feeling that you want to express. Many times a phrase without emoticons can have a positive and a negative reading since you lack the advantage offered by the use of spoken language or hand and facial expressions in order to convey what you really want,  that’s why emoticons are always really useful.

5.-Be humble and sincere at all times:

Two features that perhaps because many people don’t use or don’t express well in real life, are highly valued on Social Media communication and create a great receptivity by your followers and humanises your brand.

    I agree with you Alfredo, you have to create a good feeling in order to have a good relationship. This is also done by story telling. I would also add never use standard phrases which give the impression that the text is used for everyone, especially if this is done without personalisation (your point 3).
