Creating Social Media That Impresses

how to use , social media Marketing to Increase Engagement and Generate Leads that impress.

When you share your content on social media, your followers get a far better idea of what your brand is all about. The right mix of content informs and entertains but also personalizes your brand and builds trust and authority. Trust is vital for any brand and is essential for those in the cannabis industry, where purity and quality of product matter so much. You can use your social media for business to educate followers about the benefits of cannabis (and your particular products), inform them about important industry news and events, and connect with them regularly.

When followers recognize your content, images, and team members, they'll feel more connected and confident in your brand. And when they're ready to order or have questions, they'll naturally reach out to the brand they trust most—yours. By becoming a regularly seen, consistent, and engaging presence on social media, you can integrate with your followers as a part of their daily lives—and become an easily recognized name brand. Social media marketing helps forge lasting relationships and engagement that builds trust over time. When you have an effective social media presence, your customers have an easy choice when they are ready to buy since you are already part of their daily routine. The most popular social media platforms for the cannabis industry are: 

  • Instagram 
  • Facebook 
  • Linked In 
  • Twitter

Why is Cannabis Advertising on Social Media Difficult?

It can be incredibly difficult to navigate social media as a cannabis-branded company. Cannabis federal regulations for advertising and every social media platform have strict community guidelines that must be followed. Cannabis businesses are at risk of breaking those guidelines just by simply posting content about themselves and their products. You’ll need to be intentional and careful with what and how you post on social media to engage with your target audience.


State & City Laws

Understanding the different regulations in your area will help your business not to clash with the authority. Laws can also vary from city to city within a single state.

Federal Laws

While every state has its own cannabis rules, it’s worth noting that federal law supersedes any local rules regarding cannabis advertising regulations!

Platform Guidelines

All social media platforms are governed by federal law, and as cannabis is still illegal, advertising opportunities may be challenging. Although that’s not to say it can’t happen. (3)
