On the Internet, so many things can be misinterpreted or misconstrued because it lacks the personal touch of a voice or facial expressions to accompany what you meant to say. Using social media functions such as twitter likes and Facebook emotions can somewhat help you with that.
Having said that, there is some unspoken rule of thumb when it comes to expressing your thoughts and feelings when you’re online. Twitter likes, for example, shouldn’t be used to spam every tweet of someone you like or adore. Flooding his or her twitter with likes can come across as stalk-ish so you may want to choose which tweet you like best even though you feel the person writes great things.
You can use likes to get someone’s attention on twitter, but if you’re not too shy, mentioning them would be a better way because most of the time, a user don’t check the other user’s account simply because he or she liked a tweet. Basically, it’s a good idea to space out the number of likes you place on another user’s account.
The use of pinned social media Ads is the sure way of getting targeted free likes to your page. With the benefits that come with them, spending some amount to run the ads is not a big deal because there is a guaranteed profit in future when the numbers will be converted into real sales. The targeted ads are ideal because you get attention from most users who were not aware of your page in the first instance. It is a technique used to take advantage of friends of your existing followers to lure them to like your page since their friend is already on that particular page.
With their friend already on that particular page, they are likely to be encouraged to proceed and like it even without reading the content posted there or going through the profile. They get convinced just because a friend they know is already following. Because of your existing followers, you just got more free likes from their friends who were not even aware of your current page. It is a sure way of getting targeted audience.
The content you are posting on your page determines the rate at which you will attract and keep free followers as you seek to build your online presence. Every moment counts and you should take advantage of it to stay ahead of your competitors. However, be cautious of the content you choose to post because it can make or break the reputation you have taken the time to build. You can start right but deviate along the way because of poor planning and running out of content earlier than anticipated.
Always go for standard debatable topics with little or no controversy at all to prevent your existing followers from taking sides and unhealthy stands. Always avoid these two subjects; politics and religion. It ‘s nice to have conversations and ongoing engagements but don’t build on those two topics because in most instances the come to a dead end with disagreements. You cannot attract a diverse niche of free followers if you build on such topics. Any shared content causing friction or a discomfort to certain sections should be avoided.
