1. Get creative!
Think outside the box with what you post and how you utilize all the tools (such as check ins, networking with other businesses, enticing engagement.)
2. Post Consistently
Not only consistently but with intent, daily is best (using a variety of types of post, aka if all you are doing is selling, you are doing it wrong!)
3. Images & Videos Matter
Increases visibility & quality is important. (Every post should have an image or video with it.)
4. Analyze Data
Know where to find & how to use.
Followers want to know you are just as invested in them as they are in you. (Respond to them, thank them, show them love!)
Give your audience a reason to follow you.
7. Hashtags Matter
How & when to promote.
9. Recycle & Reuse
It's okay to recycle posts & break them up in to multiple posts when implemented correctly.
