You are now on Twitter, you are also on Facebook and you have done your best to be on every active social media site your followers are on. After a lot of efforts you just can’t figure out why you are not getting any results in increasing your followers in the social media sites,even though you are active on most of these sites.
That was the exact scenario I was in a few years ago with my blogs. I just couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong and why I’m not getting the results I desperately desire. It was only a matter of time before I realized that I haven’t been doing what I’m supposed to be doing to get results from these social media sites and as a result I have studied a lot and have been able to grow my social following significantly over time. Below are 3 great and effective ways to Increase your social media followers.
Be Active on Social Media Sites
The first step you have to take towards growing your social following is trying to be active on the top social media sites. By being active I mean you should research the top social media sites most of your readers use and then work hard on interacting with your readers on these sites.
Being active is the key to building a huge social media following these days and it is not only important for you to be active with your followers but also with the influencers in your field. For example, in my niche I talk about nutrisystem and medifast – instead of only trying to interact with the readers of my blog or my followers alone I will get greater results by constantly interacting with the authority on the subject.
Create Awareness about Your Presence on Social Sites
It is also very important for you to realize that being active alone won’t do the trick, and you sometimes have to work hard on ensuring you have the right set of people to interact with.
There is no how people will be able to find you on social media sites if you don’t create awareness about your presence. Make sure you promote your social media profiles on your blog, in your email signature and everywhere else you have the opportunity to.
Let people know that you are present, and active, on social media sites and they will be happy to join you there.
Use Guest Blogging to Market Your Profile
The final step you have to take is using guest blogging.
Guest blogging is one of the most effective ways to market a business. A lot of people use guest blogging mainly to promote their blogs whereas it can also be effective for promoting their profiles – include a link to your social media profile in your guest posts. Let everybody know you are present there and you will be amazed to see great results.But check whether you are allowed to add social media profile to your guest post.
