  • Make sure the “About Us” sections are completely filled out with detailed and up to date information.

  • Get rid of any social accounts that are not helpful to your overall social presence. If you have accounts that are not hitting your target markets delete them and focus on those where your customers are.

  • Create a content calendar on a monthly basis so you can be intentional about having consistent posts, which will help you to stay relevant with your followers, which will make them want to come back to your page and share it with other users helping to grow your social presence.

  1. Be Responsive
