Does the idea of social media have you frazzled? Feeling like you're unsure of what to post, when to post or why? Quality content that engages your audience and promotes your business can seem like a long shot but don't worry, we are here to help! And if these tips aren't enough, let us buy you a coffee and learn more about what you do and how we can help!
1. Get creative!
Think outside the box with what you post and how you utilize all the tools (such as check ins, networking with other businesses, enticing engagement.)
2. Post Consistently
Not only consistently but with intent, daily is best (using a variety of types of post, aka if all you are doing is selling, you are doing it wrong!)
3. Images & Videos Matter
Increases visibility & quality is important. (Every post should have an image or video with it.)
4. Analyze Data
Know where to find & how to use.
Followers want to know you are just as invested in them as they are in you. (Respond to them, thank them, show them love!)
Give your audience a reason to follow you.
7. Hashtags Matter
How & when to promote.
9. Recycle & Reuse
It's okay to recycle posts & break them up in to multiple posts when implemented correctly.

Mama always said, “Life is like a box of chocolates…you never know what you’re gonna get.”
Actually, that’s a pretty terrible life lesson from ol’ Forrest, Forrest Gump because a lot of boxes of chocolates have a key included, usually somewhere in the box, that guides you to exactly what you’re gonna get. (And if you can’t find the key, we live in a digital world now. Google it and you should have an answer in less than a second.)
So instead here are some words of wisdom from a woman that raised the man behind
Berry Digital Solutions, Ryan's mom, Becky:
“You can do anything in this world that you want to.”
“Do it while you are young, you have the rest of your life to be bored.”
“If you can dream it, you can do it.”
“Always reward yourself for accomplishing your goals.”
Happy Mother's Day from Berry Digital Solutions!
'Local Matters' movements are a growing trend nationwide, and for once, this is a trend worth your participation! Our communities and local economies need patrons who spend their paychecks in their own backyard. When you shop local, you are putting significantly more money back into the local economy rather than sending it to a billionaire CEO who has no intentions of returning the favor.
What else can a local business offer over a nationwide corporation? Local business owners offer unmatched, personalized customer service. Getting to know the owners allows you the opportunity to hear their backstories, learn about their products and share in their successes. Will a large retailer remember your favorite drink, ask you about your family or be willing to order a specialty item just for you? Local businesses and organizations care about their communities and know why local matters. Research shows that local small business owners are more likely to keep their dollars local and improve the local economy. If we haven't convinced you, please ask your favorite local owners why local matters to them!
Ryan and Erika welcomed a new baby boy in March of 2018, making their hearts and home beautifully full. Chris and Jessica, along with their two boys, purchased a home in West Liberty. Chris ended 2018 with an emergency back surgery. He is such a valuable partner who has continued to provide superior service to our clients, even with his limited mobility. We are hoping Chris rests his body and heals quickly in the new year.
In 2019, Berry Digital Solutions will continue to find new, creative ways for clients to connect with their target audience. We are planning to implement new marketing technologies, such as: video, social media, Google AdWords, and YouTube advertising. Our biggest assets are our local small business partners. We are proud to partner with individuals who are experts in their field, and are excited to pass their expertise along to our clients.
As you reflect and plan, think about how you want to grow your business this new year. In addition to website services, we provide: social media advertising, Google AdWords advertising, 3-D virtual tours, photography, videography, graphic design, local screen advertising, computer repair and more!
Ryan ended 2018 with #CoffeeWithRyan and has begun 2019 with #WaterWithRyan. We're only kidding, but you don't have to love coffee to meet with Ryan to put together a plan for your small business this year!
Ryan Berry Connects Champaign County Via Screens
Ryan Berry has partnered with several local businesses and organizations to connect Urbana, Ohio through a digital screen project. The screens display local news, weather, social media feeds, calendars, and more, thanks to a project called "We Spend Local." The screens are installed inside of local businesses that want to help promote a "shop local" campaign for Urbana and surrounding villages in Champaign County. Partners included in the project are: Champaign County Chamber of Commerce and Visitor's Bureau, Urbana University, Urbana Daily Citizen, Berry Digital Solutions, Champaign Economic Partnership, and many small businesses in the area.
Berry said "I am excited to find new ways to connect our community and surrounding areas. Our screens are all connected to Wi-Fi, allowing them to display news, weather, and calendar updates in real time."
The project is funded by advertisements, which give local businesses and organizations opportunities to advertise for as low as $25 per month. You can find out more about the project by visiting WeSpendLocal.com or by following the Facebook Page by clicking here. Currently, screens are installed at The Spotted Cow Coffeehouse, Champaign County YMCA, and Steve's Market and Deli downtown. Berry has plans to expand his project to other key locations throughout Urbana and neighboring villages in Champaign County, such as Mechanicsburg and St Paris, over the upcoming months.
