I like You . . . You Like Me?

Let’s look at the basics—how to get more likes on social media.  More likes means more followers and traffic.  Gotta like that.  <LOL> WPlike1

♥  Share photos/images that grab a viewer’s attention.  Get to understand which ones get more likes; create/offer similar ones. 

♥  Use hashtags and calls to action.  If you want likes, request them.  Add something as simple as “Please like my post”.  Easy-peasy.

♥  Reshare/retweet.  If you’re on other social networks, re-share.  Nothing wrong with that.  Communicate with—attract—everyone and anyone.

♥  Like other people’s posts.  But don’t do it merely for the sake of it . . . and don’t like something because everyone else seems to.  Be selective; be sincere.

♥  Like company/business posts.  As appropriate, of course.  This shows others (those followers we all want) what we’re into.

♥  Run a contest.  If it’s doable, have a like and tag contest.  You don’t simply ask people to like your post, you request that they tag someone they know in the post/comments.

Time plays a part when it comes to likes—there’s more interchange with posts published between 10:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. (evidently, less folks are on-line).  Give it a try; see what works.

Hope you liked the basics of liking.  Feel free to like me . . . as I like you.

I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction. So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects). It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
