The world of social media is a world that you should be in, that you should be a part of, especially if you do any kind of online marketing, and if you have some sort of business.
One of the best things about social media is that it allows you to be out there, to get your business or your brand out there so you are able to engage better and more with those that will find what you have to offer beneficial.
Twitter, Facebook, Google plus, Instagram, Pinterest . . . all these platforms can give you an unfair advantage over your competitors. The thing though, is that you will need to have followers to be able to properly get out there.
Followers are great to have, but its not going to do your business good if the followers that you have are crappy followers. What you want are good quality followers. So, here is . . .
How to Get More Quality Followers
Use Social Media Buttons
If you have a website, make sure that you have social media buttons where they can be seen easily and accessed easily. Your visitors should be able to share something they read very easily. Also, make sure that if you have a Facebook page, that it has links to your Twitter and Your instagram and our Pinterest. Let your followers know that you are found on other social media platforms, and make sure that you make it easy for them to find you.
Social media needs you be active and to engage with others, if you want people to follow you. If your twitter timeline is empty and you don’t tweet regularly, people will think twice if they want to follow you. It’s the same with Facebook and all the other platforms, people are more likely to follow you if you are being active and you participate.
Hashtags Are A Must
Use hashtags . . . they will help you get found when people search for things that you are tweeting about or posting updates about. Posting updates is great, but if you want to boost your followers, make sure that your content can be found easily on the networks, and you can do this through using hashtags.
Timing Is Important
When you do your postings, it is extremely important that you post when people are most active, when most people are on social networks engaging. This can be the difference to having your post seen by a lot of people or by few people. What I know from a study done a while back is that the best time to do a tweet is at 5.00p.m, ET . . . so now you know.
Engage With Targeted People
Engaging with the right people is what you need to do. People are busy, and not everyone will give you the time of day and be interested in hearing what you want to say. So, decide what people are relevant to what you have to offer, and start engaging with those people. Follow them, check the kind of tweets they post, check how they are using social media, comment on the things they post, share the things they post if they are good. If you do this, soon they will take notice of you and they will probably want to follow you back and engage with you.
Share Good Content
Share amazing content, and your followers will know that you only send only the best stuff. At some point, they will know to look forward to your things, and they will wait for it in anticipation. If you send only the best stuff, people will take you seriously and they will take what you have to say seriously.
Getting followers is not the easiest of things to do . . . but if you follow these tips you will be able to get followers that will help your business grow.
