Social media basics for beginners.
Be consistent in posting content for your followers. That means, you have to tweet daily so they won’t lose interest.
Republish your old content, especially those evergreen topics.
Tweet evenings and weekends. In this way, you will never miss out on traffic. Use tools that let you schedule your tweets. Buffer is a good example. But MeetEdgar is another tool you might want to consider as it republishes your old updates on your chosen social media accounts.
[Tweet “Use images in your tweets. But they must be relevant. Tweets with images are more likely to be shared than those without.”]
Follow other people in your niche and find influencers. If you’re too confident, ask them to share your content with their millions of followers.
Include and share the tweets of other people. But make sure that they’re relevant and interesting.
Include interesting quote from the post, instead of just posting the title.
Acknowledge those who give you positive feedback and reply to them. And never ignore those who gave you negative feedback. Reply politely and in a professional tone.
LinkedIn is quite different from Twitter because it’s mostly used by businesses and professionals. Thus, these tips might help improve your campaign on this platform.
