Answer a question

How can I get more people to engage with me on social networks?

Most people’s idea of social media marketing is just posting, but there are 3 other key elements:

  • Like / comment / share other’s people content without asking for anything. People are naturally curious and will check out your profile.
  • Ensure your profile is set up properly
  • Request to connect to people – but not just anybody – your ideal clients.
