Growing your social media community can be tough. How do you get more Twitter followers or Likes for your Facebook page? It’s easy to get frustrated when starting as it takes time to build an audience and at first it can seem as though you’re never going to have a sizeable and engaged social audience. There are two ways you can go about growing your social media community – by buying or building it. For many, it’s a numbers game, which makes buying fans and followers an easy, quick fix. But for those who truly want to succeed in social media, you have to take the time to build your audience from the ground up. The reward for those who take the latter approach is an engaged community who will be interested in the updates you share and will actually respond and share them with their audience, increasing engagement with your business. Instead of simply “buying an audience”, below I have included a number of ways to grow an engaged social media community for your business.
