Why Followers Love Memes
There are additional benefits for followers. Memes are easy to take in when people are surrounded by an excess of information and always short on time. A reader may pass up a story, but they will have the time to look at a meme. Memes are easy to share. People get a good laugh and want to forward it to all of their friends.
How to Get Started
First, consider your audience. Does your target audience have a similar interest or knowledge base that would be good material for a joke? If your audience is familiar with popular memes, you may be able to alter a well-known meme to fit your brand in a funny or trendy way. Companies have hosted contests where followers send in their own memes based around a designated hashtag.
Of course, calling CC&A Strategic Media is a great first step.
