Tips on how to increase Social Media Engagement

Social media is the most affordable marketing tool and if used correctly could have a positive effect on your business. Here are our top 8 tips to social media engagement that you should know.

1. Don’t talk just about your brand.

People appreciate when they can learn something by visiting your page instead of being told to buy your product all the time.

2. Participate in questions and answer sessions.

Actively participate in answering any questions that come up. Do your research and give correct information in terms of metrics, statistics etc.

There are too many jokes and memes out there already no need to add your page to that list. Tailor your content specifically for your audience.

Create a conversation and actively participate, do not check out in the middle of the conversation leaving your followers to carry on with the conversation on their own.
