The Bear Facts of Social Media: Why So Many Companies are Stumbling in the Digital Forest

Why so many companies are stumbling on social media

Social media strategy for businesses. Hello there, humans! It’s Bobby the Bear here, your friendly social media strategist with paws-on experience. Now, don’t be alarmed. Yes, I’m a bear, and yes, I have more knowledge about social media algorithms than the average human. Shocking, right? But let me assure you, it’s not because I’ve mastered the art of typing with these bear-sized paws. It’s because I’ve spent the past five years figuring out why so many companies are taking a face-first dive into the digital dirt.

Here’s the ‘bear’ truth: most companies are so stiff on social media that if they were a tree in my forest, they’d be the first one I’d push over. Scratch that, they’d probably just fall over themselves!

Why So Serious, Corporate Peeps?

Here’s where they’re going wrong – they’re acting like that one stuffy relative who shows up to the family picnic wearing a suit and tie. No one’s taking them seriously because they’re taking themselves way too seriously. Your audience isn’t here for a board meeting, folks, they’re here for the barbecue!

Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not suggesting you start posting memes of me rolling in a pile of blueberries (though I wouldn’t be opposed). What I am saying is – lighten up, have some fun! Your social media doesn’t have to be an endless stream of corporate jargon and product promotions.

Fuzzy Wuzzy Wasn’t So Fuzzy, Was He?

Here’s a ‘pawsome’ example: Ever heard of that old nursery rhyme, “Fuzzy Wuzzy”? Well, if Fuzzy Wuzzy were a corporate social media account, he wouldn’t be very fuzzy at all! He’d be all about the business – serious, stiff, and about as entertaining as watching paint dry.

But let’s give Fuzzy a makeover, shall we? Let’s say Fuzzy starts sharing behind-the-scenes shots of the office (or the cave, in his case), cracking jokes in his posts, responding to comments in a friendly, humorous way. Suddenly, Fuzzy isn’t so fuzzy after all. He’s approachable, he’s funny, and most importantly, he’s not falling flat on his fuzzy face in the digital world.

Social media strategy for businesses Bear with Me, Folks

Trust me on this – as a bear who’s managed to become a social media strategist (believe me, it wasn’t easy with these claws), I know a thing or two about standing out in a crowd. Or a forest, in my case.

Your audience wants to see you let loose a little. Show them there are real humans (or bears) behind the brand. Make them laugh, make them think, but above all – make them feel something. Otherwise, you’re just another tree in the forest, waiting to fall.

And remember, folks, Bobby the Bear is here to help you ‘paws’ for thought and avoid these bear traps. So let’s quit playing corporate charades and start showing the social media world that we know how to have a little fun. After all, the internet is a jungle… or a forest, I should say.
