facebook_button_eu3gIf you’re an author, blogger, marketer, etc. chances are very high you’re using social media. But are you using it correctly? There are a few key things you should be doing if you really want your social media marketing to pay off, and today I’m going to supply you with what those things are. Ready? Here we go!

Item #1: Post Often

If you’re not keeping your social media active, it isn’t doing you a bit of good. You should try posting to EACH ACCOUNT once per day. That means every single account you have, such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, etc. If you have more accounts than you can keep active, it would be best for you to get rid of the one which helps the least. Stay on top of things if you want to see results.

Item #2: Like All Comments

It takes just a few minutes to go through each of your social media accounts and like each post. This is a simple way of showing your followers that you care enough to read what they write. Because of this, you’re much more likely to receive more engagement if you take the time out to like all of the comments you received the following day – or in however long it’s been since you were last on your accounts.

Item #3: Respond To At Least Five Comments

You should be personally responding to at least five comments PER SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNT per day. This is just another way of showing your followers that you care about what they have to say, which helps to boost your engagement. No one wants to interact with someone who doesn’t interact back. It’d be like talking to a wall!

Item #4: Respond To All Relevant Messages

Each day, take the time to respond to all relevant messages. This includes any messages which aren’t spam, or simply say “Hi” or anything along those lines. If someone has taken the time to craft a well-written messages to you, take the time to respond back in kind.

Item #5: Share Something Relevant

Share one item (something relevant to your followers) on each social account each day. It takes just a few seconds to click the share, re-tweet, or pin button, and it serves two purposes. First, it helps keep your social media accounts active. Second, it helps you to connect with other individuals in order to form business relations that could prove useful in the long run.

Item #6: Keep Information Up To Date

Whenever something changes, you should update your social media accounts to reflect this. It’s simply a matter of giving your followers accurate, up to date information.
