Social Media Tip: How to Gain Followers

In a world where online marketing has become essential, social media can be a powerful instrument to promote your brand, gain connections and create a strong online presence. One of the most important elements of a strong social media presence is having a large network. Check out these steps for creating more followers:

  • The more you post, the more followers you gain. Posting frequently and in a scheduled manner is proven to attract more followers. Studies have shown that people tend to follow accounts that have more content and post consistently.
  • Follow more people. Following many accounts gets your name out there. The accounts you follow may follow back, especially those similar to you.
  • Use Hootsuite or SproutSocial. These sites schedule your posts ahead of time, which will help you stay organized and ensure that your account always has new content.
  • Post during peak hours. Schedule posts between 1 and 3pm, which is when most people are on their social media accounts.
  • Use websites properly. Use hashtags and post content your followers can relate to or will enjoy reading. Be active by “liking” posts from other follower’s and they may do the same for you.
