Take a look at your current content. What is working? What are your fans responding well to? Determining what is working well for you is a good baseline for your future content. If you are getting more engagements from infographic posts than you are video posts, its wise to continue to use infographics as your content leader.
3. SCHEDULE YOUR MESSAGES
It is easy to get distracted during the day, luckily there are scheduling tools to make life easier. Most social media platforms offer a built in scheduling feature so that you can schedule your posts 2 or 3 days out, letting you post everyday, without having to remember to manually do it! Of course if something comes up and you want to post it when you think of it, you can always post right away as well!
4. DON'T BE A SOCIAL JERK - RESPOND

It might seem like another to-do added to your never ending list, but responding to your fans and followers really goes a long way. Afterall, they're reaching out to you inquiring about your business, it might just turn into a quality lead for you!
5. DON'T JUST TALK - LISTEN
Make sure you are taking action when people have questions, complaints, or praise.

When you address complaints, it not only gives you the chance to right the wrong doing, but also shows your customers that you have a vested interest in their concerns.
