For those of you who are new or are used to post at inconsistent intervals, you should know consistency is the key to success.

Ensure consistency with the following three-point plan

  • Plan posting weekly or biweekly and stick to it
  • Publish different types of contents to enthuse your market each and every time
  • Incorporate Social Media Outreach into your plan at regular intervals

3. Be Choosy

Being choosy is one of the amazingly simple yet underused tricks to entertain your audiences. No, we do not mean you go and sweat it out finding that one thing that exists ONLY ON YOUR PAGE. However, it always pays to be picky about what your audience might love.

The choosier you are, the better your audience will shower their interest on.

Always ensure your content isn’t just entertaining but is also helpful and relevant to your audience.

4. Social Media Management Tools and Hash Tags

Social media management becomes a tedious task when you need to login to each and every native app and resort to manual work.

However, with many helpful tools out there, you can use it to post one message that is automatically populated across different networks. It helps you save time, money and focus on the more important tasks.

Further, be creative in using hashtags that are also seen to be a helpful option to generate relevant traffic.

5. Contests

Did you just like the contest results your friend just shared on his/her wall? Well, there is more to it. Contests are one of the majorly used strategies to know and understand your traffic.

With careful questionnaires, you can get a glimpse of what actually your demographic market is up to which in turn helps you plan unique growth strategies.
