    It's different for what platform you are using. Generally, you need to know your audience. You need to know what platforms they use and what they prefer on social media. Images and videos are great to get their attention from all the other noise.

    I agree with Erica. Know your audience and try some visual.
    Research has proven that visual posts on Facebook by 80% and Twitter retweets by 30%! (I'll try to find the study so you know I didn't just pull those figures from my ass!)

    Games, contests and giveaways is another thing you could do to increase engagement. Everyone loves a good 'ole giveaway.

    It's hard to give advice when we don't really know much about why or what you're doing and your circumstances, but I would suggest experimenting on different social media with different types of content. Collect the data and double down on the content that has the highest engagement!

    EDIT: Here's the link.

      I definitely agree with both Erica and Ciaran. Knowing who it is that you're targeting and the types of things they are in to is key. Once you know this make sure to connect the correct tags/keywords to your post so that your audience will be able to find you in order to engage with you.

      All the best,

    One way of boosting your social media engagement is knowing or defining your targeted people. From there, create a post that will surely get or catch their attention. Make sure to also join groups where you can post or react to some posts where you can also interact. Also, make a regular update on your social media page because it will surely reach those people who have like your page.

    Here are some things that usually do that trick:

    - Visuals work great for increasing social media presence.
    - Post videos (how-to videos, tutorials, reviews) that are relevant to your market.
    - Make time to respond to comments.
    - Another trick is to post updates (3-4 posts will do), which your audience can benefit from (automate this to make it easier).
    - Follow businesses that can benefit from your products and services. Connect with them.

    Add value in your posts through content. Easier said than done for sure but the compound effect of being consistent and analyzing what gets the most participation will pay off in the long run. Do not try to eat and elephant whole

    The key to increasing social media engagement is to communicate with your audience. You need to work on continuous basis in order to boost your audience engagements.

    Only then you will get to know about your audience's like and accordingly you should share photos, videos. It is noticed photo and video attract more people than normal text.

    There are so many ways some will work and some won't work depending on your niche.

    One suggestion is to try and run a fun contest with a prize related to your business. Be creative and unique and even promote the contest with some paid ads to get the engagements started. You don't need to spend a lot maybe $20 or so to promote the contest.

    Asking your followers and audience questions is another way to get them active on social media. You could ask them to provide advice, content ideas, what they would like to see from your brand in the future or just a general question like €œ- What are plans for the weekend?€

    Here are a few things that for the most part do that trap:

    - Visuals work awesome for expanding online networking nearness.

    - Post recordings (how-to recordings, instructional exercises, audits) that are pertinent to your market.

    - Make time to react to remarks.

    - Another trap is to post refreshes (3-4 posts will do), which your group of onlookers can profit by (mechanize this to make it simpler).

    - Follow organizations that can profit by your items and administrations. Interface with them.

    If you mix eye catching images with quotes from famous people, that should increase your engagement. However, you must do this consistently. This is not an over night success tactic.

    Use # Tags.

    Ask questions.

    Like and share others also.

    To boost your social media engagement is by convincing your audience that you are offering solutions to them. So, they will follow your social media account because they get what they want. Targeting your audience can be based on the solution you offer, a certain product or service, or a certain location. So, learn about those things that fit your target market.

    I agree with Erica, but apart from images and video you also need your social profiles to be complete. When your profiles are complete, and with an I.D type photo it creates trust which is extremely important. Start by completing your profiles as professionally as possible, and preferably include links to your own personal domains.

    It would have been better if you could have mentioned your website url or mentioned what you offer product or service.
    Still, have some basic suggestions:
    Plan campaigns to run on the various social media platforms.
    Prepare simple yet interactive banners on various topics related to your to your main topic
    Use hashtags
    Join various groups related to your business.
    Try sponsored post concept.

  • Everyone says, engage with your followers or audience but the question is how! When anyone contacts you on your social network be sure to respond/reply back. Whatever the query maybe.

    Next, make your profiles/pages on social network attractive with useful information and clearly indicating the CTA on the front page.
