If you want to grow your social media account then you should be actively looking for new ways to get extra followers. The more followers you get, the larger the number of people that each of your new posts will be automatically broadcast to. This is ultimately one of the primary objectives of social media and it's what will give you a lot more reach and authority thus ensuring that all your hard work is not for naught.

But how do you go about growing your followers when you're starting from humble beginnings? Read on and we'll look at some of the best ways to do soÉ

Add People

This is one of the simplest and easiest ways to get more followers Ð simply head onto your platform of choice and then go about adding as many people as you can. What you'll find is that a large proportion of those people you add will respond in kind and immediately add you back. It can be slow going but it's an almost guaranteed way to extend your reach and influence.

Reshare

Retweeting, repining or resharing is one of the very best ways to grow your following. Why? Because once again the people you help out will often want to do the same for you and that way you can expose yourself to their audience too.

Team Up

If you find the above strategy doesn't work then you should try agreeing to team up before you go ahead. Give a shout out to your followers in exchange for someone else doing the same for you and you both will stand to benefit.

Use Smart Hashtags

Using the right hashtags and people will easily find your posts when they're looking for related topics. Check what's trending then post about that.

Encourage Sharing

Some posts are simply more sharable than others. Amusing videos are always a good way to get a share or retweet Ð as is writing a positive review (as the company you are reviewing will often want to spread your message).

Cross Pollinate

If you have a captive audience already then make sure you leverage that opportunity. Ask your blog readers to follow you, your YouTube audience, your mailing list Ð even customers who you see in person!

Build Followers

This sounds like a catch22 but the more followers you have the more followers you will continue to gain. The reason for this is simple: people like to join accounts that look popular. For this reason followers beget followers and once you build up enough, it will become self-perpetuating.



Will your Customers value the change? 


Most successful businesses know that success depends not only on having paying customers, but also involving customers in the creation and delivery of their paid-for services and products.

Once you are aware of the changes you require in your business, you have choice. You can research and implement the changes yourself, procure the services of a specialist and you can meet your customers in the moment and ask them what they would like. Involving your customers might not be practical in all of the areas mentioned above, but what changes if advocated by your paying clientele, could add more money to your bottomline?


Is It Worth It? 


What if the measurement of worth in business is the contribution the change and your business is to your money flows, your lifestyle, your targets, customers and your future? Having a business is a co-creation between you and it towards your future. Are you clear on what you are looking to create as your future? If not, consider taking a moment and writing a list of 100 things you would like to be, do and have. Yes, 100 things. It's trickier than what you think.

Once you have completed the list, look at what is required from your business to physically actualise your list. Are the changes you are looking to implement into the business going to contribute to you having your desires life and living? Then by all means, implement it.
