Day 35 of documenting what I am learning and working on on social media and I am making a ton of progress using the strategies I have been talking about in the past blog posts.
I have been implementing it for the past day and a half consistently and have grown around 200- 250 followers and have created a handful of new relationships and a client on social media!
This strategy actually works in this day and age of social media because it is doing what others aren't willing to do.
It is all about doing the things that don't scale, or you can't automate, and giving the customers, or followers, an unforgettable experience!
That is how you grow an audience that cares about you and feels they have a relationship with you and a community on your page!
What Is Helping Me Grow on Social Media
Going back to how social media was meant to be used and doing what others are not willing to do, that is what is working on social media!
In a day and age of everyone wanting to spend the least amount of time on something, and automating everything, it really goes a long way if you take the time to try and have a real conversation or really engage with your followers.
This is so rare now as everyone is just leaving generic comments on posts or not really trying to do anything in the community other than post content and then leave the app.
When you actually take the time to join the community it goes a long ways and that is what people really care about.
Who cares if you can automate a strategy that will get you 100,000 followers but none of them care about you or what you have to say? It does you no good.
How about we focus on being part of the community and cultivating relationships in order to get people to care about what we have to say.
Play the long term game and don't go for the sake right away, give to them and join the
How You Can Implement This Social Media Strategy
Wondering how you can start to implement this strategy into your social media page?
Well, I put together some ideas and some of the things that I use in order to start creating these relationships. Try these out and stay tuned for the next post where I will share a few more strategies for going back to how social media was meant to be used!
The first thing you can try out is super simple and goes a long way and that is a simple dm to your new followers!
Just thank them for following, ask if they have any questions or things you can help with the wish them a great rest of whatever day it is. Make sure you include their name and a personal message about their page as well in order to show them that it is not just an automated message!
The next strategy to try out over the next few days is a simple comment on the last 5 posts of
10-20 large accounts in your niche. This comment should be your thoughts, opinions, advice, etc and not just "nice post" or "love this."
The last two comments are pointless and give no value to anybody so they are not going to click on your account. Essentially they are just wasting your time posting those types of comments.
Thanks for more support as usual on the daily blog and I would love to hear how these strategies worked for you, drop a comment below if you try them out!
Talk to you tomorrow,
