How to market your embroidery business on social media

Having a strong and active presence on social media is essential for any business to flourish. Social media offers multiple tools and opportunities to businesses for increasing brand awareness and generating leads.

Let’s take a look at how you can leverage the power of social media to grow your embroidery business:

Create engaging content

Regularly share engaging content on your social media to attract and retain the attention of your target audience. This includes content such as:

  • Videos of creating or packing orders.
  • Images and videos showcasing the use cases for your products.
  • Behind-the-scenes content about the process of procuring raw materials.
  • Customer testimonials. Collect feedback from your customers and share them on your social media accounts.

You can even share memes relevant to your target audience to keep your social media accounts fun and relatable. Memes are also great for organically reaching out to newer audiences: if your current followers like your memes, they might share them with their friends who don’t know about your business and don’t follow your accounts. In other words, you can potentially reach a large audience through shareable content such as memes without spending any money on advertising.

Then you can easily publish them to your social media accounts directly from PosterMyWall.

Conduct giveaways/contests

Conducting giveaways is a surefire way to get your audience’s attention, because who doesn’t like freebies? You can even collaborate with other small businesses to offer a good variety of products to the winner(s) of the giveaways and cross-promote each other’s businesses.

One way to conduct a giveaway is by creating a giveaway post that requires people who want to enter the contest/giveaway to answer a few questions about your business/products or ask them to suggest a creative caption for a post.

Alternatively, you can ask people to submit photos of them wearing the embroidered apparel or using other embroidered items they bought from you to enter the giveaway. Then you can share these photos on your social media and select the winner through a lucky draw.

Collaborate with influencers

Influencer marketing is a powerful tool for businesses to increase brand awareness and generate leads. Influencers have highly engaged audiences who trust their recommendations because they can relate to their lifestyle. So, if an influencer endorses your products, their followers will feel more inclined to order them too.

Send one of your best-selling items to the influencers and provide them with the information they might need to promote your business, such as the type of products and customizations you offer. Then allow the influencers to promote your business in whatever way they deem fit. Influencers are skilled at creating engaging and authentic content that resonates with their audience.

You can even offer an exclusive promo code to the followers of any influencer you work with to encourage them to shop from your business.

Engage with customer base

Encourage your audience to give their feedback on their orders, suggest new products they would like you to launch, or ask you questions by posting interactive posts or live Q&A sessions. Live streams are especially great for connecting with your audience, as they can see your face and interact with you in real time.

Regularly monitor and analyze discussions on social media platforms (e.g., Twitter, TikTok, and Instagram) to gain insights into what people are saying about your brand or products. Respond to all positive comments by expressing gratitude. If someone mentions that they had an unsatisfactory experience with your business, apologize to them for the inconvenience caused and tell them the steps you will take to rectify the situation.

This way you can still hopefully retain the customer.

Paid ads

Paid ad campaigns on social media are highly effective for reaching out to potential customers. Social media algorithms favor paid content over organic marketing efforts; with paid ads, you will have the undivided attention of your target audience on social media.

Social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram allow you to narrowly define your target audience by specifying their interests (i.e., embroidery, crochet, arts and crafts, etc.), demographic characteristics (age group, location, and gender), and behaviors. This way your ad is shown to the people who are mostly likely to engage with it.

Based on an ad’s performance (impressions, profile follows/likes, shares of the ad), you can lengthen or shorten the duration of the campaign.


Social media marketing might require significant time, effort, and creativity from you, but it also delivers the results you want. You just have to be consistent with your marketing efforts, so that your business stays on top of the mind of your audience.

By following the tips mentioned in this blog, you will be well on your way to grow your business through social media.
