Where Twitter is concerned, you should keep track of which posts are being retweeted and liked which is also true of Facebook and integral content.
- Grow your following by approaching influencers – Your influencers do not need to be famous people. Influencers are people you identify as consistently sharing your content or sharing your content and getting significant amounts of engagements. Each week, try to take a look at where your secondary activity is coming from and use these areas to your advantage.
