Is it time for a social media makeover?



Get up to 30%* off! Get going with GoDaddy!

Social media is essential for everyday entrepreneurs — but it’s a waste of your valuable time if you’re not using it properly. To stand out from the crowd and be recognized over time, strong design is essential for both of these things. If you’re not standing out, it might be time for a social media makeover.

How do you know it’s time for a social media makeover?

  • Your social media has no rhyme or reason. It’s kind of … random. You’re spending loads of time posting but it looks bland and gets no engagement. All that effort isn’t translating into much growth or profit.
  • You know your brand could look better. Do you ever catch yourself scrolling and daydreaming? Imagining how your brand could look a little bit cooler? You know your brand could look more unified, professional and relevant, but you simply don’t know how to do it, or you can’t afford to hire a designer.
  • You’re not on social media. You have a business already established and a website up and running, but you need to get your brand on social media.
  • You’re just starting out. Maybe you’re a small business or side hustle, and you want to do it properly on social media, from the get-go.

Whether it’s taking someone’s wardrobe from drab to fab, or transforming dull living spaces into a dream home, everybody loves a good makeover — probably because we like to see people living their best lives.

Your social media channels as an everyday entrepreneur are no different. But giving your brand a social media makeover goes further than just looking good.

Having a powerful presence on social media can help you maintain a competitive edge, setting you up to sell more, and keep your business thriving.

Maintaining a social media account might feel like a productive use of your time, but pottering around aimlessly in the digital space can end up wasting more energy than it generates for your brand.

Social media is supposed to work for you, gaining you leads, fans, subscribers, customers and recognition. The juice has to be worth the squeeze.

We’ve got some ideas to help create the best brand presence you possibly can, to increase your odds out there in the social media jungle.

Armed with this knowledge, we’ll show you a little shortcut to creating professional-looking designs too, in the form of Layout Collections in GoDaddy Studio.

What does a great social media feed look like?

You know those social media accounts that you just love to see popping up on your phone? That’s not by accident. Looking effortlessly attractive as a brand takes some upfront work to build solid foundations.

With these in place, creativity can flow.

Brands with great social media feeds typically get at least some of these things right:

  • They publish excellent content. It’s inspirational, informative, or entertaining – providing some value to their target audience.

  • They have a distinct identity. When it’s done well, you can recognize a brand at a glance before you even read the first word. Their coherent brand identity also differentiates their business space from the personal accounts that are intermingled on your feed.

  • They touch on a defined pool of topics. You can’t talk about everything to everyone – so they narrow it down to some recurring themes, centered on their audience, their product, and their values. Where these intersect, is their sweet spot; the conversation they can own.
  • There’s a defined cadence. Whether it’s three times a day or three times a week, a brand is more likely to show up in our feeds (and become memorable to its audience) if they have a regular publishing routine. Diligence is rewarded on most algorithms, too!

  • They value aesthetics. Brands doing well on social media have quality, well-considered content that makes your eyes happy: think beautiful photos, playful design, popping colors, gorgeous fonts, and eye-catching graphics that elevate a post from a random photo to a work of art. Some of the best brands regard their feed as an ever-evolving work of art.

  • Their content is actionable. There’s a clear message telling the reader what they want them to do – whether it’s entering a competition, commenting on a particular post, or signing up for a product or service.
  • They create content with mutual benefit in mind. This means either delivering a moment of insight or delight, or creating a chance for the reader to reap some benefit – a discount, a sale, a competition, a lesson, or the chance to gain more information about a topic.

  • They engage with customers and other brands (they don’t just post and duck). Popular brands are responding to comments, thanking customers for compliments, or solving simple problems, rather than publishing a piece of content and never interacting with it again. They’re part of like-minded online communities and business networks, engaging with these conversations.
  • They engage with current events, trends and memes. Inasmuch as we’re encouraging planning, the brands who are strong on social don’t lock things in months ahead without making space for some spontaneous reactions. Bernie on a chair, anyone?
  • They sync with special days, seasons and holidays. In doing this, they’re responding to a world that’s constantly in flux.    

Most of all, brands doing well on social media are the ones who are using their social media channels to help them achieve their business goals.

How do you get started on a social media makeover?

It may seem overwhelming to try and get to the same level as bigger, more established brands, but this is absolutely an attainable goal — and you can do it yourself, without spending money on hiring a designer.

Even if you’re a single person side hustle, looking premium will create that perception of professionalism (nobody needs to know it’s just you and your phone).

Remember that it’s more than a once-off brand revamp: reinventing yourself is actually an essential habit to develop as an entrepreneur. Luckily, it’s something you can get better and better at over time, and the proof of the pudding is in the tasting: growth.

We’re going to show you how to up your game on social media, with some best practice tips combined with stacks of practical know-how. But before we dive into the creative stuff, it’s important to address the reasons behind why you’re doing this. Getting this down before you start redesigning will help you reap both immediate and long-term benefits.

What does a social media makeover involve?

There are five fundamental steps you need to walk through when it comes to pulling off a successful social media makeover, with questions to ask yourself at each stage. Let’s take a closer look:

1. Consider your purpose

  • Why are you on social media in the first place? What are you trying to achieve?
  • Which platforms are right for you, in terms of your big goals? Remember that you don’t have to be everywhere at once.
  • What’s worked/not worked for you in the past? Be honest, and learn from your mistakes — as well as your successes of course.
  • What’s your brand really about, beyond profit? How do you want to show up and engage on social media, and how do you want your audience to view you?

2. Set measurable goals

Whether it’s more sales, more leads, more engagement or building a community, set yourself a target and a timeline. This doesn’t have to be too complicated if you’re starting out. Use your best guess as a baseline (100 new subscribers a month, 15% more traffic to the blog via Instagram), and adjust your targets once the data starts rolling in week after week.

Hopefully, your feed will start looking more stylish and coherent, creating an impression of improvement, but make sure your goals are something you can measure directly, to keep you on course and motivated.

The good news is that most social platforms have easy access to basic analytics, for free. You don’t need to get neck-deep in the data, but you do want some objective measure to know if your numbers are moving up or down. This basic data will guide your strategy on an ongoing basis.

3. Find your brand’s unique style (your presence)

Nobody knows your brand better than you. So, what is its personality: bold or classic? Playful or street? The design will ultimately create this impression to new customers.

Luckily, there are 13 different styles to guide you here, so you can choose the one that’s absolutely right for you. Naturally, you can customize your unique brand identity, but it’s useful to start with some guardrails.

Remember, your style is inextricably linked to your audience. It reflects a worldview, and not just a “look.”

Your aesthetic is ultimately in service of attracting folks who resonate with your values.

Once you have your unique style in mind, take some time to explore all the graphics, logos, images, color palettes, and fonts we have in GoDaddy Stuido. Save your favorites — these will form part of your brand identity kit.

4. Customize templates and layout collections

This is the fun part! Find templates for the formats you’ll be using the most, whether it’s a competition poster or a YouTube thumbnail. We have thousands of designs, grouped by platforms, occasions, and styles.

Layout collections make the process even easier, by offering you a full pack of consistently designed templates across a range of formats and platforms.

Customize templates by applying your brand’s unique graphics, fonts, colors, logo, and images to a professional design.

Find the layout collection that suits your brand best and customize it with your brand’s colors, fonts, logo, graphics, and images.

5. Plan ahead with a content calendar

  • Content for a week: Pick a few types of social content that you produce on a regular basis. These could include discussion topics, product features, user showcases, links to your blog, motivational quotes… the options are endless, but narrow it down to keep your brand’s messaging consistent.
  • Content for a month: Look at the upcoming month(s) to identify special days, holidays, or cultural moments that might create opportunities to produce relevant content.
  • Content for a year: Identify a few key holidays/seasons/events that hold maximum marketing potential for your brand well in advance. Use the time to plan campaigns — a sale, a competition, an event — for maximum impact.

Once you have the basic principles in place by working through this framework, the design process should be more logical, much easier, and — most importantly — more fun than complicated. As an everyday entrepreneur, you’ve got a ton of things on your to-do list.

Creating content shouldn’t be sucking hours out of your day, or hundreds of dollars out of your business account.

Make your brand beautiful

Templates and layout collections make it super easy to create a full social media kit with your unique brand identity: simply add your brand’s fonts, colors, graphics, and images to professionally designed templates.

Our layout collections were created with this exact function in mind, to allow you to develop a consistent library of ready-to-go content, instead of designing from templates one at a time, as the need arises. Remember: the secret to success is to have your brand vision and goals clearly identified before you start.

Now that we’ve broken it down for you, giving your brand a social media makeover doesn’t sound that overwhelming, does it? You’ve got this.

GoDaddy Studio is the perfect tool to help you show up beautifully, and make an impact on social media — every time.

Brand Authenticity: How Small Businesses Can Build Trust and Loyalty



In today’s competitive business landscape, small businesses need to establish a strong brand identity to stand out and connect with their target audience. One crucial element that can make or break a brand is authenticity.

In this article, we will explore why brand authenticity matters for small businesses and how it can help build trust and loyalty among customers.

Brand is Everything

Branding is the process of shaping and defining a small business’s identity. It encompasses more than just a logo or a tagline; it extends to the values, mission, and overall personality of the business. A strong brand serves as the foundation upon which all marketing efforts are built.

Through branding, a small business can establish a unique and recognizable identity that sets it apart from competitors. It communicates the business’s essence and promises to customers, creating a perception and expectation of what they can expect from the brand.

A well-crafted brand strategy helps small businesses differentiate themselves in a crowded market, attract their target audience, and build a loyal customer base. It provides a cohesive framework for all marketing and communication activities, ensuring consistency in messaging, visual identity, and customer experience.

Effective branding goes beyond aesthetics; it delves into the emotional connection between the brand and its customers. It evokes feelings, creates memories, and builds trust. Small businesses that invest in building a strong brand reap the benefits of increased brand recognition, customer loyalty, and long-term success.

Why Being Authentic Matters

In a world inundated with marketing messages, consumers have become more discerning about the brands they choose to support. Authenticity plays a significant role in this decision-making process. Customers are drawn to brands that are genuine, transparent, and true to their values.

When a small business demonstrates authenticity, it fosters a sense of trust and credibility, setting it apart from those that merely follow passing trends or adopt a contrived persona.

How Brand Builds Trust and Loyalty

Building trust and loyalty is crucial for small businesses, and brand authenticity serves as a powerful catalyst in this process. By consistently embodying their values, being transparent, forging emotional connections, and telling compelling stories, authentic brands establish a strong foundation of trust and loyalty with their customers.

Let’s explore some key aspects of how brand authenticity contributes to building trust and loyalty:

1. Consistency

Authentic brands are consistent in their messaging and actions. They deliver a consistent experience across all touchpoints, from their website and social media presence to their customer service interactions. This consistency builds trust, as customers know what to expect and can rely on the brand to deliver on its promises.

2. Transparency

Authentic brands are transparent about their processes, ingredients, sourcing, or any other relevant information. They openly communicate with their customers, addressing concerns and being honest about challenges they may face. This transparency builds trust and demonstrates the brand’s commitment to ethical practices.

3. Emotional Connection

Authentic brands connect with customers on an emotional level. They tap into shared values and beliefs, creating a sense of belonging and resonance. By understanding their target audience and communicating in a genuine manner, small businesses can forge deep connections that foster customer loyalty and advocacy.

4. Storytelling

Authentic brands tell compelling stories that resonate with their audience. They share the journey, values, and purpose behind their business, giving customers a reason to engage and connect. These stories create an emotional bond and help customers relate to the brand on a personal level.

Brand building on a budget


In today’s business landscape, brand authenticity is a powerful asset for small businesses. By staying true to their values, consistently delivering on promises, being transparent, and connecting on an emotional level, small businesses can build trust and loyalty among their customer base.

Remember, authenticity is not a one-time effort but an ongoing commitment that should permeate all aspects of the business.

Small businesses that prioritize brand authenticity will differentiate themselves in the market, cultivate a loyal customer base, and ultimately thrive in an increasingly competitive environment.

By understanding the importance of authenticity and implementing strategies to foster it, small businesses can build a brand that resonates with customers and drives long-term success.

Your brand is your identity. Be authentic, be true, and watch your business flourish.


In conclusion, brand authenticity is a critical factor in building trust and loyalty for small businesses. It goes beyond superficial marketing tactics and taps into the core values, consistency, transparency, emotional connection, and storytelling. By prioritizing authenticity and integrating it into all aspects of their operations, small businesses can create a powerful brand that resonates with customers, fosters trust, and drives long-term success.

If small businesses embrace their authenticity, they will stand out in a crowded marketplace and forge deep connections with their target audience, ultimately reaping the rewards of customer loyalty and advocacy.

Local extensions display your business address, phone number, and a map marker, along with a link to your business details page on Google Maps. Whether customers are searching for directions, store hours, or contact information, local extensions provide the answers they seek.

When setting up and optimizing local extensions, consider these best practices:

Creating Compelling Local Ads: Tips and Best Practices

When crafting local ads, keep these tips and best practices in mind:

Highlight Local Relevance: Emphasize your local presence and connection to the community. Use location-specific keywords, mention local landmarks, and highlight community involvement to resonate with your audience.

Showcase Special Offers and Promotions: Entice customers with special offers, discounts, and promotions that are exclusive to your local area. Create a sense of urgency with limited-time deals and seasonal offers.

Include a Strong Call-to-Action (CTA): Inspire customers to take action with a clear and compelling CTA. Whether it’s “Visit Our Store Today,” “Call for a Free Consultation,” or “Book an Appointment Online,” guide customers towards the desired outcome.

Personalize and Segment Your Ads: Tailor your ads to different segments of your local audience based on factors such as demographics, interests, and search behavior. Personalized ads create a deeper connection and drive higher engagement.

Measuring the Success of Local Advertising: Key Metrics and Analysis

Unlock the secrets to local advertising success with data-driven insights and analysis! Measuring the success of your local advertising campaigns is crucial for understanding what works, what doesn’t, and how to optimize for maximum impact.

When analyzing the performance of your local advertising campaigns, consider these key metrics and analysis strategies:

Click-Through Rate (CTR): CTR measures the percentage of users who click on your ad after seeing it. A high CTR indicates that your ad is resonating with your audience and effectively capturing their attention.

Conversion Rate: The conversion rate measures the percentage of users who take a desired action after clicking on your ad. This could include actions such as making a purchase, booking an appointment, or signing up for a newsletter.

Cost Per Acquisition (CPA): CPA measures the average cost of acquiring a customer or lead through your local advertising efforts. It’s important to optimize your campaigns to achieve a lower CPA and maximize ROI.

Store Visit Conversions: For brick-and-mortar businesses, store visit conversions track the number of users who visit your physical store after interacting with your local ads. This metric provides valuable insights into the effectiveness of your local advertising in driving foot traffic.

Return on Ad Spend (ROAS): ROAS measures the return on investment for your local advertising campaigns. It’s calculated by dividing the revenue generated from your ads by the total ad spend. A positive ROAS indicates a profitable campaign.

When analyzing these metrics, it’s essential to consider the specific goals and objectives of your local advertising campaigns. Use data-driven insights to make informed decisions, optimize your campaigns, and achieve your desired outcomes.

How to Optimize Your CRM for Winning More Customers

Optimizing CRM adds enormous value to the business process. It will enable businesses to strengthen their client relationships, simplify processes, and improve sales and profits.

There are several ways to optimize your CRM to win more customers. Some of them include as follow.

Automate The Basic and Straightforward Tasks

Automating daily and repetitive tasks is an important step toward improving the efficiency of your business processes. Many businesses mention a shortage of resources and time as the reason for not automating such repetitive tasks. But this is a real mistake business owners are making in this digital age.

Automation helps businesses improve customer traction. It also gives companies the capability to inspect the intricate journey towards real customer-centricity. This process might feel a bit overwhelming for budding businesses with limited experience in CRM.

CRM automation can be used to eliminate repetitive and time-consuming functions like sending newsletter subscriptions, promotion offers, follow-up emails, and other marketing efforts. This will reduce the need to write the same response repeatedly while engaging customers. It is also possible to automate sales processes like call scheduling. All of this will save precious time for team members that can be diverted to more crucial tasks, increasing productivity and boosting business growth.

Understand from Analytics

Another important feature of CRM that makes it attractive is its ability to analyze consumer behavior and trends. Not only does CRM perform the analytics, but all the data is stored in one place, making it easily accessible. This will enable companies to easily access and understand the behavior of clients and push the products and services to suit those trends.

When one marketing strategy becomes successful, businesses should analyze the reason for its success and model the next campaign similar to it.

Having a better understanding of CRM analytics will help companies and their different managerial teams come up with the best marketing strategies and solutions. All the marketing and sales strategies should be designed based on client data to yield maximum results.

Business team using CRM solutions

Establish and Maintain The Portfolio of Profitable Customers

CRM helps to collect and organize all the client data in one place. The advantage of this feature is that it will enable teams and customer service agents to access how a particular issue or client was handled in a previous similar scenario. This will help the agents communicate effectively in the said scenario and provide consistent customer service by predicting the wishes of clients based on previous responses.

CRM can be used efficiently for helping agents deal with new customers or specific interactions. Specific guidelines or playbooks can be created based on earlier interactions. This will allow the customers to have an idea about what to expect, and they will be happier with the service provided.

You can also prioritize the queries and issues of the most profitable customers and get them handled by the right agent. This does not mean you should delay the issues of other customers. The issues requiring urgent attention should be prioritized above everything else.

Make CRM The Core of your Company’s Marketing Strategy

It is beneficial for businesses to develop their marketing strategies and campaigns based on CRM intelligence. CRM intelligence provides critical insights into marketing, like the best technique to approach a specific market or the most successful tactic for a particular service. All of these crucial insights will assist businesses in developing campaigns that will result in agile and tactile business practices and corresponding business growth.

Integrate CRM With Other Tools

Once you invest in CRM, you should remember to integrate it with other tools and internal systems used in your business processes. CRM can be integrated with enterprise resource planning systems (ERPs) to create an automated inquiry management system that is fully developed and includes all client information.

For social media listening, your CRM should also be connected to all social media accounts of your company, like LinkedIn, Twitter, or Facebook. This will keep you up to date on important topics like emerging trends, the reputation of your brand, and the impact of your marketing campaigns. All this information can be used to create better strategies for your next marketing campaign.

Update Customer Data

CRM is most effective when the data is up-to-date. Your marketing and sales strategy will only be effective if it is developed using the latest client data, like changes in preferences, location, or contact method. By designing strategies based on the changing needs and desires of the customer, your relationship with them will continuously evolve and become stronger.

Customize CRM

CRM is like the real face of your company or support team. This system plays a great role in shaping the opinion of the customer about your company. You should use CRM to create a positive and lifelong impact on your customers. Remember to meet the expectations of your clients and provide a cohesive and consistent service. Also, give focus on providing a seamless customer experience.



CRM is an invaluable tool that can be used for the overall development of the business. By properly optimizing it, you can get more customers and generate higher profits.
