Welcome readers. In today’s post we are going to be covering, how to grow a social media following. This blog post will cover, Twitter and Instagram.
You might have two questions on your mind; how difficult is it? And how long will it take? The simple answer is, it’s extremely easy and it can take as little as 20 minutes a day to start the increase of a steady following.
I’m going to give three easy methods for each social media. These methods are easy and don’t take much time at all. You can do each method for as long or as little as you want each day.
A quick heads up! Your accounts may hit the ‘social media site limits’ and you may be locked or blocked from doing certain actions and these restraints can last from 1 hour to 48, but please don’t worry you can’t be banned or blocked forever by doing these methods.
1) Find account similar are better in your field and turn on your notification. Once turned on you will be alerted when that account tweets. Now wait until that account tweets and once the tweet is fresh wait a few minutes, (5-10 minutes) and then follow everyone who ‘likes’ and ‘retweets’ their tweet. This ensures you will show up on active user’s notifications and they will then be inclined to follow you and automatically be introduced to your services.
2) Like and retweet relevant and new content on your timeline. When you start doing this you will show up on active user’s notifications and they should be inclined to follow you.
3) Post! Post! Post! Make sure you are posting good content often. This might seem obvious but a lot of big accounts stay dormant for hours, days and even weeks and then they wonder why they have lost a huge number of followers.
1) Use hashtags! This might seem a bit frowned upon but when starting out as a new ‘Instagram’ person it’s the easiest and best way to start growing a substantial following. The biggest worry with this method is, people can use random hashtags for their service. Just make sure to keep them relevant. For example if you are an Osteopathy and are posting a photo of a new service you are offering, you should use hashtags such as “Osteopath”, “Osteopathy”, “Osteo”, etc.
2) Similar to Twitter, turn on the notifications for relevant accounts. Once the notifications are on, once the person posts follow everyone who starts and begins to like that post.
4) I don’t want to repeat myself but Post! Post! Post! Make sure you are posting good content often. This might seem obvious but a lot of big accounts stay dormant for hours, days and even weeks and then they wonder why they have lost a huge number of followers.
To conclude, by liking, retweeting and generally interacting with people on Twitter, plus using relevant hashtags on Instagram and of course posting frequently on both, you will definitely see an increase in the amount of followers your social media accounts have across these platforms. Each follower could be a potential new patient so the more followers you have, the higher chance you have at increasing referrals.
