You might have read on our blog or somewhere else, “It’s not the number of followers, it’s the engagement that counts.” But what if I told you that you could have the best of both worlds? It’s undeniable – more engagement leads to a more significant following, and a larger following translates to more sales.
But here’s the catch: This isn’t a walk in the park. It’s for those ready to rise with the sun and burn the midnight oil. Those moments when you’re on a train journey or waiting in the car? Those aren’t for aimlessly scrolling through social media. Use them to engage with your audience, to build that irresistible powerhouse of a brand.
If you’re someone who’s determined to elevate your brand from ground zero to a thriving entity, then this one’s for you. Let’s dive in.
Amplify Your LinkedIn Game
Hop on to your LinkedIn profile. Aim to forge at least five new connections daily. Drop them a note like:
Let’s connect on LinkedIn. Noticed we have mutual contacts! If ever you need support, feel free to drop me a line.
Best, [Your Name]”
After a week, gift them some value:
Thanks for connecting. Thought my recent [vlog/blog/podcast] might resonate with you. Hope it adds value.
Cheers, [Your Name]”
Another week in, drop a line:
Hoping you found my resources insightful. Let’s chat? How about next Wednesday?
Speak soon, [Your Name]”
Brace yourself, not all emails will bear fruit. But persist! Engage beyond the comments. Forge meaningful connections. And watch your engagement soar.
Twitter and Instagram: Engagement Without Boundaries
When it comes to Twitter and Instagram, there’s no 5-minute rule. If structure isn’t your jam, then this is your playground. Every idle moment? Engage.
Jump onto these platforms, leverage those trending hashtags, and engage on posts that resonate with your brand. No bots, please. Engage genuinely. Not all will reciprocate, but stay the course. As engagement spikes, so will trust. And that trust? It’s your ticket to converting followers to customers.
Facebook and YouTube: The Art of Acknowledgment
Starting out? Every Facebook post you read, every YouTube video you watch – show some love. A thumbs up, a comment – it goes a long way. Videos demand effort, so acknowledge that. Engage, and the community will reciprocate.
Remember, while not everyone comments on content, making it a habit boosts your visibility. Show the love, and watch it come back tenfold.
Ready to be that irresistible powerhouse on social media? The blueprint’s right here. Engage. Persist. Flourish.
