Q: Why is “Follow us on social media” an important phrase?

A: Great questions. And this is not just a phrase but a reminder. Some people check your content and want to see more. Maybe know about you better. So, if you don’t say it, then they would check the content and leave. Therefore, saying it can be a good reminder and very important to help you grow your platforms.

Any content creator, business owner, or even YouTube channel owner needs to keep saying this. But something you might not notice it. And I will mention it because it’s a very important point everyone needs to know about it. Sometimes it’s how you think of it that can help you to know how to use it.

Important point

Hear me out. Whether you are an online business owner or a local owner. Don’t forget to build and grow your social media. I’ve seen many local businesses don’t do this. And it’s a great way to have leads and increase sales because nowadays so many people use social media even locals. Maybe you could get tourists to come and buy from you if using platforms.

I mentioned this because if you are a small business owner and work locally. Try to market your platforms to people around you and people you see. They could be potential customers and help you to get more as well. You never know and it’s really worth working on them.

Q: What is social media for business owners?

A: Wonderful question you guys. I’m glad to answer this if you have it in your mind. Well, social media is what you see it. And the purpose of your using it. However, for business owners or even content creators, it’s a way to build and communicate with a community. Once see it that way, your mindset will change, and how you work on your platforms.

Imagine you are on a stage in front of so many people. That’s how you should see it when working on social media. Unless you use social media to read and check other content. Then, it would be for entertainment. You wouldn’t care as much about providing content and communicating with your audience.

Reasons why the perspective is important

  • You would engage with your audience more
  • Put an effort to provide good content to your audience even if they are few
  • Help you to maintain consistency and work
  • Enjoy the process of growing your social media.

If you see social media just numbers and people liking your stuff. Trust me, you won’t last long and after a while, you won’t be able to succeed. However, if you appreciate the numbers even if it’s one liking your stuff. Reply to your audience’s comments and be humble.

FYI

One thing you should know about reminding people is that you need to know that following is just the first step. You can’t just get one follower and settle and celebrate without keep doing good work. Make sure to give them a reason to keep following you. This way, it will help you to grow your business. I will talk about this in today’s post. Please keep reading to know about it.

Ways to remind people to follow you

Being creative is one of the things people love. Don’t just say the phrase follow us on social media. There are ways that can help you. And to be honest, just recently I found out about this. So, let’s learn together about these awesome ways to help you to say this phrase in different ways and be creative.

This is a good way for any business owner. When you want to get international followers on Facebook, Instagram, or any social media. Another good way to get followers and help with your business growth. You can say this or write it somewhere visible to the readers for bloggers or YouTubers.

Even people would think differently. Because being part of the community is not the same as being your follower when saying follow me.

Use social media icons

Well, this is one thing I used to be creative with it. And I would find social media icons for my blog that look really cool. You can use social media icons instead of saying “Follow us on social media” only. This way you get creative with marketing platforms and increase your audience.

You can do only icons or icons with text. There are many ways you can get creative with icons and it’s a good way to remind people to follow your social media platforms. Follow social media might be a good phrase to indicate that you asking them to follow you. Also, many places can be included such as your email template.

Try “Follow us on social media” templates

Another way to get creative and remind people to follow you. Don’t just say it in plain text. Some people might not even read it. However, having the template can help to be more visible. And you will get many people to follow you. If you succeeded in capturing their attention and getting them to follow you.

But I’m definitely using it in the future for my blog. Also, whatever business or other ideas I might have to grow. Even try creating templates with images and designs.

Different phrases to remind others to follow

Maybe using other phrases can help to grow your social media platforms. And I will mention some of them that you can use. You can try these as an alternative or another way to remind them. Because sometimes you need to let them know that you will be doing updates and where they can find you.

Tips to maintain good social media growth

Getting that one follower is just the first step, Then, you will need to work more and hard to get more followers and maintain good growth. Well, here is where comes the trick and what people forget to do all the time. Many people never pay attention to this part which is important.

Q: What is social media growth?

A: Ahh, you asking that? Okay, I got the answer to that. Social media growth means building engagement with your audience and growing your audience. And make sure to have an active community. Using social media does not have to be only growing numbers but engagement, comments, and communication with your followers.

Instead of saying follower, try saying my audience or my community. This will help you change your perspective to improve and grow your social media accounts. And succeed in building a good and happy community to support you and grow whatever business or thing you want.

Be genuine and humble

People always love humble famous people. When they comment on your stuff, treat them like human beings and reply to them. Don’t make fun of anyone no matter what and give back with a nice reply. Imagine on the stage and you are ignoring your audience. That is not a good picture you want to let the people see you.

Never build your audience with lies and tricks. Well, you might win but it will be for a short time and your fall will be worse than anything in the world. Be honest and genuine with your audience no matter what. It’s a good thing whether making friends or building an audience.

BE creative and entertaining

Honestly, I’m working on this one but for being so busy and having a lot of work alone. It’s kind of difficult but it’s very important. Be creative with your audience on social media sharing fun things. Variety of cool things in different ways. Maybe even use different words to make it more creative.

Also, people are your place of building the community. Including entertaining things such as contests or fun things to do with your audience. Trust me, so many people would love to join that. And it will help you to grow your business or anything you trying to grow. Giveaways are another great way to build your social media platforms and keep doing it from time to time.

Very important point

Perspective is very important. Doing giveaways and contests is not your way of growing your platforms. But giving back to the community. Make sure to consider changing if you have that thinking. Because it won’t help with social media growth if you think it’s only to grow numbers. Variety of giveaways and contests for old, new, and engaging audiences.

Try to open and accept feedback

Well, people will appreciate being open. For example, if you have issues, try to share them with your audience. There will be people who will support you. Don’t be mysterious and make people make assumptions because that might hurt your social media growth.

Another important thing is that you can’t force a community with your stuff. Many people tried it already and now they are alone. People will give feedback and opinions to build a successful place. Now, you don’t have to decide upon these opinions but consider them and do the best for your community and audience.

Show up consistently and share valuable content

Growing up while you have a small number of people sometimes can lose them easily when not consistent. Let alone famous people who went silent, they are losing people every day. YOU have to be consistent and show up every time and every day. It’s easy to be consistent with social media.

Q: What is the best way to stay consistent?

A: That is a good question. Who asked that one? Well, anyway, the best way is to schedule ahead. You don’t need to post on time every day. Most social media platforms now have built-in schedulers. Which means you don’t have to spend money or make excuses anymore. Also, have a team to help you manage if you are big and can’t do it alone.

Next, it would be a waste of time for followers to follow you for content that doesn’t help, And you don’t have to help in a specific way. Maybe inspiring, helping with life issues, making people laugh, or any reason. Make sure that it’s good and that people get something out of it that helps them.
