4- Focus on Engagements
Views and likes are nothing if they fail to convert. Instead of having millions of views, you should focus on having engagements per 100 visitors or viewers. Want to play the algorithm? If you have 3 comments on a post, and then you reply to those comments, Facebook looks at that post as higher, (6), engagement so it shows it on more people's feeds. Reply to all comments!
5- Track Results
A key element for a long term social media success is tracking results. By monitoring results, you can identify issues and weak links in your campaign which you can overcome next time. Just look at "insights" - Start analyzing post types people like, times of days they are on the platform, & demographics of people ENGAGING in your content.
6- Set Content Calendar
Having a well-defined content calendar will save you from getting overwhelmed. Also, enhance overall productivity. You can simply collect all the digital assets (images, videos, links) that you will share that week add little notes to their meaning to be used in the captions. There you have created your calendar for the week. Organize your week of content however it works best for you. There are plenty of free social media calendar templates available on the internet. But definitely plan it out.
7- Be Your Audiences’ Robin Hood
