Take a few minutes a day to interact with your followers. I know it can seem like there isn’t enough time in the day sometimes, but if you want to build a following being interactive is a great way to encourage others to follow you.
Why is it important to build your following? Because as you build your following you’re building a reputation, a brand, a name for you and your business. Your building trust and a future client list.

It only took me a few minutes to check in on my Twitter feed, and by doing this I am showing my followers that I care enough to pay attention to them. If you are struggling to keep up with your social media perhaps you need to get help.
There are several great tools out there that can make doing it yourself easier or you can hire a professional to assist you. I personally use HootSuite to manage my social media dashboard and for just 5 bucks a month you can upgrade and get some really great extra features. Using the right tools and knowing when it’s time to hire help will make your social media management smooth sailing.
