How To Engage With Your Followers

Engage With Your Followers

Engage With Your FollowersIt’s not enough to simply post on social media and then go on your way. The real power of social media is that it creates conversations between you and your followers. At least, it should create conversations. Conversations are the key to getting more clients through social media. It’s important to regularly, consistently engage with your followers by responding to
comments, answering questions, solving challenges, and more.

Social media is not a one-way street. Rather, it’s a conversation between you and those who follow you. A conversation involves both speaking (posting) and listening (responding).
If you want to build relationships and gain clients through social media, you need to be having conversations, not just publishing new content.

One of the things that matters most when it comes to social media is that you feel authentic. You don’t want to come across as a huge corporation who only posts on
social media and never engages in conversation.

Instead, you want to authentically engage with your followers. Authenticity is attractive. It will attract new followers and turn them into new clients.
Another reason to engage with followers is that social media platforms tend to prioritize the posts with the most engagement. The posts with the most likes,
comments, shares, and overall engagement get shown more frequently than those posts with very little engagement.

If you want to get your posts seen by as many people as possible, then you absolutely
must engage with your followers on a regular basis.
You must:
ƒ Talk with your followers
ƒ Create conversations
ƒ Answer questions
ƒ Respond to any problems that are raised

Rather than talking at your audience, your goal is to talk with them and, as much as possible, create real relationships with them.

What are some ways that you can create conversations with your followers?

ƒ Ask questions.
ƒ Do live videos in which you talk directly with your audience.
ƒ Conduct polls.
ƒ Ask people to comment on a particular subject.
ƒ Make statements that will get people talking (just be careful about being too controversial).
ƒ And more

Focus on being as real and authentic as possible on social media and you’re guaranteed to create conversations with your followers.
