How to Get Your Customers to Stop Scrolling Through Their Newsfeed and Stay on Your Post

I recently attended a small business owner’s networking luncheon where the topic was “taking your business to the next level.” The speaker went around the room and asked the entrepreneurs to name one thing they knew they should be doing more of. Over half of the responses were related to social media marketing. One person said “I should post more videos,” another mentioned “I need to create new Facebook posts,” and several people simply said “social media.”

It’s no surprise that social media is on every small business owner’s radar. If you don’t keep up with it, your competition certainly will. But in this era of information overload, how do you keep it fresh and exciting? How do you make your posts stand out? How do you keep potential customers engaged longer?

There are many pieces to a good social media strategy, but an effective way that Cabana VR can make your business stand out is with immersive 360-degree content. We specialize in high-quality 360-degree photos, videos, and virtual tours. These eye-popping images immediately catch the attention of your potential customers and clients. And these images hold their attention longer too, because the viewer is in complete control of what they see.

 Viewers can use the controls on the right to move up, down, left, and right. Clicking on the thumbnails on the left takes you to the next 360-degree photo in the tour.

What do I mean when I say that the viewer is in control? Try it for yourself with this 360 time-lapse video of a sunset. Use your mouse, directional keys, or swipe your finger to look left, right, up, and down. Look at the water, then spin it around to see the picnic area. See if you can spot the guy who was really interested in getting an up close look at our camera! (hint: it’s toward the end of the video).

If you want your property or product to pop, have your social media strategist give Cabana VR a call at 980-318-0014.

This 360-degree video lets the viewer choose where to focus, whether it's the lake, the beach, or the sky.
