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>
♥ 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.
