There are many reasons why someone would want to post to social media. Individuals post to social media to keep up with family and friends, businesses post to bring in more business, and scammers post to gain access to personal data. If you own a small business or have something creative to sell, like crafts or art, posting to social media is a must. Beyond Facebook and Instagram is the latest entry into the social media arena is Tiktok. How to repost on Tiktok is simple, but there are a few best practices you will want to follow.
Why Use Reposted Content
There are several reasons why you will want to use reposted content on your social media page. The first reason is that you can’t possibly create enough content daily to draw new users to your site. You could hire someone to create or find new and useful information, but that could become expensive.
Another reason to use reposted information is to ensure you obtain the highest quality graphics and content. This helps to draw in more customers, those who would be willing to pay for your products.
According to a recent Twitter survey, Tweets that contain a graphic, picture, or a short video will get retweeted more than 35 percent over those Tweets without any photos. Choosing the best content for your brand is important and can help move your products into the right hands. You want your customers to purchase your items, but you also want them to spread the word about your brand. You are not only building a business based on something that a consumer can use or enjoy; you want them to tell all their family and friends to also purchase your brand.
If you are going to change original content, you either need to get permission from the original creator or change the content completely to make it your own. Never take credit for content you did you create yourself. Stolen content could lead to legal problems with hefty fines.
Permission and Credit
It is important to get permission from the original poster of the content to use their creation. However, some photos and graphics are simply “out there” as public domain and can be used by anyone without credit. To be safe, it is suggested that one always gives credit to the original place where you found the content. You can add a line at the end of your post, giving thanks to “@so-and-so” for this content. You could also comment on how much the content was found or liked within your post. Whichever you decide to use, always err on the side of caution, and thank the website or person you took the post from.
Creating content or gathering it from other sources will help to promote your products or services. Taking time to curate the best content for your website may take some of your valuable time, but it is worth it to keep your brand at the forefront of trends, which ultimately leads to sales.
