  4. Stick with the theme/brand.
  5. Always check the trends.

#1: Assess Your Audience

Check your social media apps. Go to your existing followers. Assess the demographics of these people. Are there more male or female followers? What age group do you think most of them belong to? Country? Lifestyle? Check their content. Evaluate your existing posts too. What are your most-liked posts?

Determining your audience will be a headstart to the type of content you should be posting. You can either assess your current followers or create a target audience that you’ll market your content to.

#2: Post Consistently

People won’t follow a social network account that has such little content. With this, you have to post consistently to get your new visitors hooked to your profile/page.

#3: Create Quality

Aside from consistent posting, ensure to have quality posting too. Tweak up your photos. Grammar-check your text posts. Edit out your vlogs.

And while doing this, make sure to not over-edit. People love to follow accounts that personable and authentic. Over-edited photos and videos will probably drive them away instead so be careful when polishing your content.

#4: Stick with the Theme/Brands

Go for feed goals, especially if you’re posting on social photo sharing apps. Sticking with a certain theme will make new visitors like your account.

Brand matters too. If you’re a mom blogger, posting sleazy topics along with the child-caring tips is offputting.

#5: Always Check The Trends

Keeping up with the trends will get you more chances for followers. If there’s a fun challenge popping up, you can join the challenge. If there are current events trending on social media, you can join the discussion.

Trending topics have thousands (even millions) of viewers so use this to your advantage.
