INTERACT

There is no point being on a social media platform of any type if you don’t connect and speak to people – and if you are then this might be one simple way to boost business.  So some ways which you can interact are:

  • Speak to new followers – Don’t you personally like it when you follow someone and they notice that you have followed them?  Give someone else that warm and fuzzy feeling that they are important to you, your life and most importantly your business!
  • Liking other people’s followers (there is no point liking your own – you should like it because you have put it up for everyone else to see!) But it also gives you the ability to look for new hashtags
  • Commenting and having conversations build up relationships with people

POST

Now by interacting with people you might find you have more people following what you are posting, so you want to be therefore posting regularly remembering that consistency is key on social media and with any marketing to getting more business.

However you don’t ever want to put a post out without asking a question, if you set the example by interacting with them they will want to interact back with you.  You can then respond to all the comments not just with a like or a one word answer but with the aim of building that relationship up

 

So top tip to generating more business is being VISABLE and use your call to action, don’t be afraid to change it from a blog post to a sign up offer for example!
