I’m sure if you’re into some type of internet marketing and don’t have thousands of fans or followers you’re wondering “How to increase your followers on social media”. I would like to help you out with that today.
First you must realize that social media marketing only works if you have a few fans or followers. This article will walk you through a handful of proven methods that will help increase your following on all of your social media accounts. The top three items are a must:
You must be consistent.
If you use any of these strategies for just a short time, and then give up, they won’t work. You need see the big picture and be consistent over the long haul to be effective. If you are short on time and have limited resources for your social media marketing efforts, I’d recommend using these strategies and making sure you are consistent.
You must know what your audience actually wants.
What you think they want and what they actually want will be two different things most of the time. Check your analytics to find out which types content have been most popular with your fans and followers. Doing this will show you what they want to see more of. Give it to them and watch your following grow.
You must be social on social media.
While some of these tips may seem obvious, keep in mind that if you want to increase your following on social media, it’s as much about keeping your current following as it is about getting new ones.
Relate with your fans
Show your fans and followers you’re a real person not some faceless company. Then sharing your content with their friends becomes way less risky.
Promote other social media accounts you have:
Now and then you’ll want to promote your other social media accounts to your fans and followers. This will help you build your following on all of your accounts.
7. Be responsive:
Posting great content that gets your followers engaged is just one piece of the pie. Respond to questions, comments, and complaints in a timely manner. Your followers will love you for it.
Put social share buttons on each blog post:
