Memes, memes, and memes. I’m positive this is one of the top factors in social media content that’s used to draw in a new audience and retain the existing audience. A meme is an image, video, piece of text, etc., typically humorous in nature, that is copied and spread rapidly by internet users, often with slight variations.
Memes have become all important when it comes to spreading the word about something. It’s also a way to hop on to trends so as to be considered fresh and in touch with current trends. Of course, you can’t run a business page solely by memes, but only posting product updates and product adverts can prove boring and result in the loss of a few followers.
It seems like a good sense of humor isn’t only wanted on a dating profile but is also needed to retain and attract an audience for your business.
Since the usage of memes has increased rapidly over the last 10 years or so, it has also become increasingly easy to be able to create memes from scratch. You can either share a meme just as you receive it, change the text on an image, or create a new one altogether. All you need is, like I said before, a good sense of humor.
And maybe if you’re smart and efficient (read lazy) like I am, you’ll use one or more of these apps to create your masterpiece.
