Consistency is key. Social media is a marathon NOT a sprint.
You need to develop the relationship between you and your audience. In order to do that, you need to be there. All good- no GREAT, relationships rely on communication. Just as referenced in the algorithm article, commenting and responding to other people’s posts is essential. Put yourself out there, have some fun! Make this a daily chore. You will not have a successful run on social media if you post everything in one day and comment like crazy on other’s posts. Take it slowly and grow.
Develop a Strategy
Create a calendar and scheduling system for yourself. It’s a great idea to block out two times during the day to check your social media- early morning and evening. Ever confused or have nothing to post? Post about your experience, tell a story, or even make it a commenting day! It is a waste of time to stay in your corner on social media- it would be called antisocial media, right? There are varying statistics available about when you will see results from social media. A reoccurring number is… 6 months! You cannot fit all of 6 months work in a day. Write out your schedule and experiment with your hashtags! Remember, we are your biggest fans!
