Don't wait until you have to get the word out about an upcoming event. It takes time and effort to find on social media accounts that share common goals with you and to build those relationships.
Here are some tips on who to follow on social media and how your digital friends can make a big difference in reaching your goals.
Who could you follow on social media?
- First, find your current collaborators, project partners and clients on social media.
- Second, learn who your main competition follows and who is following them.
- Finally, identify your ideal clients or collaborators for the medium- and long-term.
Expand from there. You will attract like-minded people by keeping your social media posts relevant to your audience and directly linked to your mission and goals.
Connect with your online friends by asking questions, congratulating successes, and re-sharing their posts and content that is relevant to both of you.
Finally, keep in touch with your digital buddies. Watch out for opportunities they might appreciate and help them to expand their online reach. Reciprocity is the name of the game when it comes to social media and engaging your stakeholders online.
