Social Media Marketing Tips and Guidelines
Create Quality Content: As we know from Facebook’s new algorithm, the content you post needs to be entertaining, relevant, engaging, and give value to the users.
Schedule: Build an easy-to-follow calendar of your social media activity, indicating which social media sites you’ll post to and how often (weekly, twice-weekly, daily) you’ll want to post at least weekly. Facebook also has a scheduling tool to have your content automatically post ahead of time.
Show Some Love: Go beyond the typical way of engaging with your followers. Don’t just like and respond to the comments they leave on your page. Instead return the favor and show them some love by leaving a like or reaction on one of their future posts. Interact with them by leaving a comment on their posts as well.
