Show Some Love This Season 💌💌💌

Valentine's Day is coming up and you may be asking yourself, how can I show my social media community some love (and maybe even receive some in return)? Today, we would like to talk about engagement. Do you feel like you have been diligent in posting on your social media to let people know what's been going on with your small business, but are unhappy with the amount of responses in terms of likes and comments, as well as gaining followers?

This may be because of a lack of engagement, a buzzword in the social media marketing field. Think of it like this: if you're having a garage sale and you put your valuable belongings out on the front yard, you may have some people who organically stumble across the sale and stop to look around. However, unless you reach out to the community in some capacity, it's likely you won't receive much traffic to your sale. Simply posting all of your best content to the vast sphere of social media won't draw in large audiences. What can you do?

Show some love to your social media community. This is a two-way relationship! Go on to your various accounts for a bit every day and engage with your followers and those who follow you by liking, commenting, re-posting and interacting with them. The best way toreceive love is to give it yourself by frequently engaging with your social media community to foster a larger broad base of followers and brand loyalty. Now go out there and show some Valentine's Day love!
