1. Create a plan
The first thing to do is to have a plan. If you have started posting, stop. Go back to the drawing board and create your plan. Who is your primary target audience, who is your secondary audience.

2. Create great content
Your content must be informed by your plan. Now that you know what kind of content your audience will like, it is time to kill it. Remember, your content must be creative, relevant, and relatable. Your content must educate, entertain or inform. Align your content with your goals.
3. Be consistent
Rome wasn’t built in a day. You need to be consistent on social media. You must show up daily even when you don’t feel like. One secret to growing social media pages is posting great content consistently.
4. Connect with your customers
Let your tone be approachable and friendly. It’s called social media because you are meant to socialize on the platforms. Meet people, connect and create lasting relationships with your customers. Give incentives, discounts, giveaways, free delivery. Call on their birthday or anniversary. This means you need to have a database of all their details.
