However, just like any other tool, you need to know how to use it correctly. You can’t just expect to post an unlimited amount of spam and expect to develop a loyal following. I will now give you 10 tips that will help you know how to engage with audiences on social media.
Tip #1: Share Lifestyle Photos
People love photos. When you combine this with the fact that people want to have an ideal lifestyle, photos and lifestyle become a perfect combination. So, for example, if you are offering a weight-loss product, you want to share photos which remind people what type of body they can achieve. You can post photos of yourself or of celebrities. Basically, post photos that will sell people the dream of what is possible.
Tip #2: Link To Controversial Posts
Creating controversy is very effective. Write blog posts that are controversial and provide a link which leads to your post. Some example titles could be: “5 Controversial Foods That Will Help You Lose Belly Fat Like Nothing Else,” or “Why Everything You Have Been Told About Debt Is Wrong,” or “Controversial Video Leaked: How To Make Millions Of Dollars In Your Sleep.” You get the point. Be controversial and provocative.
Tip #3: Use Success Quotes
People love quotes. They particularly love quotes that come from successful people. It shouldn’t take you too long to find the quotes you need. A simple internet search will provide you with a countless amount of quotes. Share these on a consistent basis.
Tip #4: Ask Questions And Conduct Surveys
The people who are normally on social media like to feel like they are part of the process. They like feeling involved. You can involve your audience by asking them questions. Example questions can be: “If you could wave a magic want, how would you describe your perfect life?” or “What do you think about the state of the economy?” You can also involve your audience by conducting surveys. An example of a survey could be: What is the biggest obstacle you face when it comes to weight-loss? A) I don’t have enough time to exercise. B) I don’t know what foods to eat. C) I tend to overeat or D)All of the above. Surveys like this one can be magical.
Tip #5: Share Stats
You want to come across as an expert in your field. You can do this by posting relevant stats. For example, if you are a fitness expert, you can routinely post health and fitness facts. If you do this regularly you will achieve a high degree of credibility with your audience.

People want to know that what you offer will work for them. Therefore, the best way to provide proof is to share case studies.

This will make your audience want to find out more about how they can achieve similar results.
