Today I’m super excited to share my tips and tricks for how to encourage l followers to like, comment, and engage with you on Instagram and Facebook posts.
It is one of those things that makes a huge difference in your social media presence for a few reasons.
- People will pay attention to your posts more when they see others commenting and liking your posts
- Facebook will reward you for creating an engaging post and show it to more people than normal
The question though is HOW do you get started on taking your posts to the next level?
1. Have your family and friends help you!
The people closest to you are going to be a huge help when you start your business pages! The best way they can support you and your business is by liking, commenting on, and sharing your content.
That’s going to tell Facebook and Instagram that you have engaging posts, so they are doing to share it with more people.
This is also going to help make your page look good! When a potential client is browsing your Facebook and Instagram page, it looks good when you have engagement and people who are also interested in your business.
Seeing other people join in on your posts will start herd mentality! This is when someone sees that other people are doing something, such as engaging with you on social media, and they decide to do the same!
2. Create engaging content!
When it comes to Facebook, you need to have things that your followers can engage with. If you want someone to be commenting on your posts, ask them a question.
For example, you could ask “What is your wedding date?”or, “How is wedding planning going?” That way you are engaging with them first and initiating a conversation or engagement with them.
Once you’re on Instagram, you can follow brides pages where you can personally engage with them by liking and commenting on their photos. This will have them looking at your page and engaging with you too!
3. Be consistent!
The number one piece of advice I want to offer for people who want to encourage followers to like, comment, and engage with them is to be consistent and persistent. You can’t do it for one week and expect to see immediate results. Often, it can take 7 or 8 months of posting every day for you to see your engagement go up. It may seem like it’s not going to happen but I promise you will see growth!
Make posting and engaging something that you enjoy and can make a habit because if you’re already posting, you may as well get the most payoff from your work!
4. Follow your wedding pro friends!
A great way to increase engagement is by also engaging with other wedding pros! Like their page, follow their account, like their photos and comment on their posts and they will be more likely to do the same for you!
And it doesn’t hurt to create these great online relationships with other wedding pros! We are all in the same boat and working together to get better is going to help us all succeed.
So what are you going to do to take that step towards more likes, comments, and engagements? Once you get started and keep the momentum, you can start to see major changes in the way you show up online!
