Personalizing could look like a bunch of things. For the millions of people who spend quite a lot of time scrolling through social media, it can look like ads they resonate with, posts they want to engage with – polls and AMAs, and contests that persuade them to create more User Generated Content. Interacting them online by replying to their queries, and sharing their feedback can cultivate a long-term relationship with the customer.

Sharing is the best form of engagement

Understanding and aligning yourself with the algorithm is the most important part of optimizing social media. While liking and commenting are helpful ways for viewers to engage with your content, sharing is the most effective way to engage. Create and curate content that is both relatable and relevant. Making them resonate with the consumers would encourage them to share it on their stories, increasing your brand’s visibility and making the platform push your content to more viewers. Remember, sharing is caring.

Transparency 

Social media can be pretentious; being honest and transparent while posting can humanize your brand and make it easier to connect and engage with people. Authentic content, behind-the-scenes photos and videos, and rejected captions can all resonate with people more than the actual posts. Make sure to mix these with promotional and informational content and watch the rate of engagement increase.
