If you are using social media to build an engaged community of fans and customers, generate leads and raise awareness of your products and services, it is imperative that you post on social media on a daily basis. However, you also want to connect with your audience without driving them away. The key is to strike the perfect balance between informative and annoying.
Your social media efforts can take you places. This is especially true if you know when to share and when to listen. We’ve got some great tips for you to inspire you in your efforts.
Twitter is a fast-moving social network. Due to its fast-paced nature, you’ll need to update it more often.
We generally advise business owners to maintain a consistent presence in Twitter. While being active on Twitter is advisable, you don’t want to overwhelm your audience. So, keep your posts spaced throughout the day.
With Twitter, it seems the more the merrier. You can tweet as much as 14 to 20 times a day. Just make sure that they’re full of great info.
With over 1 billion users throughout the world, Facebook is the place to be. As a general rule of thumb, you’ll want to post twice a day, 7 days a week.
You don’t want to post too frequently as people easily get frustrated with too many posts. Make each post count by sharing fun pictures and posts that your followers will be interested in. Remember, the more your followers comment, share or like on your posts, the more likely are they to see them.
Like Facebook, Pinterest has a feed that almost everyone can see. With the high volume of content being shared on Pinterest, you’ll want to create new boards on a regular basis if you want your pins to get found. Feel free to post 5-10 times a day.
Pinterest is all about visuals. So we suggest that you use beautiful, quality images.
