If you’re reading this article, don’t think that there must be a special technique for increasing followers on Social Media. There is half correct information flowing everywhere on the internet these days. It is important to know the essence, not the technique or any trick. Some people just want to know the technique, but that’s not what long-term success is.
There is no point in following or buying followers. On the contrary, it loses trust.
So, let’s learn the techniques from our actual experience.
Point 1: Social Media has the “Content is King” strategy. Build your own brand identity
After all, this is the essence, content is essential to increase followers.
Content means “The real information based on your true Experience”.
You have a keen opinion or an experience of a particular thing
You also have properly structured information to share that experience
You can put the information in a way that is beneficial to people
You care about them and you are not trying to grow followers with any techniques
Only then your value can be created by multiplying your content
What are the causes of failure?
Some people try to increase followers with tricky techniques. They think that people with a large number of followers have it all done and they don’t have to do anything further. But it is not true. It is very difficult to maintain an audience and a large follow-ship if you continue not doing further value addition to your social media handles.
The first thing you should aim for the organic growth that is natural without any tricks.
Focusing on essential activities should increase value from a long-term perspective, rather than tricking yourself into some empty techniques.
From here, the content will talk about overcoming every technique theory.
Point 2: Things to be aware of when increasing followers on Social Media
The following are five very important points to consider.
- Always think about increasing followers
- Post at least around max characters allowed
- Post what is easy to get spread
- Know your Audience and actively get involved with them
- Get on the trend (Cryptocurrency etc)
Always think about increasing followers
To get more followers you need to be a “Person that can benefit his audience”.
You can send out information about funny things, or your thoughts about anything you like but it is important that the information you are sending out is useful for your audience and they are getting benefit from it as well as they are liking it.
When posting on social media, ask yourself these points:
- Is this post worthwhile?
- Will this post make a positive impact to my audience?
- Will they like it and spread it further?
You might think, “Oh, I’m tired of thinking about that every time I post”.
This is a big mistake.
Get used to it.
If you try to send valuable information daily, you will get used to it in a month. It is all about a trial and error policy.
Because 5 posts x 30 days = 150 trials and errors every day = 150 experiences
If you do this many times, you will get used to it so you won’t get tired!
Post at least around max characters allowed
Also: Posts that evoke sympathy or a particular emotion are easy to spread.
Know your audience and get actively get involved with them
Many influences have made their audience increase by actively involved with their followers and responding to their messages and liking their posts. Many followers have increased due to the engagement and support with a word of thanks. It is free, so you should actively use it.
Even if you say something you don’t really like but your followers like, they will probably notice it and appreciate it. It’s good to continuously send out what you want to get listened.
Point 3: Respect the feelings of people on Social Media
You should follow people who are one step ahead of you in areas that have a high affinity with you. But that doesn’t mean that you imitate the big influencers as it is.
Why it doesn’t make sense to imitate influencers?
Influencers are “buzzing whatever they do” with violent numbers.
It doesn’t make sense to imitate the influencers as it is who are big in their area because they have already nailed that emotion of their particular audience.
They have already completed that area. They have already exhausted their unique tricks, so it is better to respect them as well as yourself by bringing up your own unique content by learning and improvising yourself.
Point 4: Clarify your purpose of increasing followers on Social Media
- What is important is “awareness of your purpose”
- Why should we have more followers?
- Can you bring them value without betraying them at any point of time of my social media journey?
If you interact with your followers on a regular basis, your application rate will increase. So will the value of your Post.
Point 5: Post regularly with a timely schedule
Make followers think that you are very punctual about your postings on social media and that’s why you are quite serious about it. You don’t take your audience lightly is another way to express that you respect them.
Finally, think of your Social Media as your business
The more followers you have, the more you can advertise products or the more you can create your own products or services
Also, you can get an ad request and make a profit with your posts.
So, your daily social contribution is the most important thing you can take out from this article. This is the same for blogs, “social contribution” is essential to increase followers and your profits.
Other few points to keep in mind:
Post across your other Social media Platforms also to get noticed
Choose your Hash-tags carefully and keep changing them
But I think the most important point to always remember is to ACT NOW.
You will see different scenery a year later and every year later, while those who do not act will see the same scenery every year.
It may be difficult at first for us human beings to get adapted. But it is not impossible.
All the best!
