Potent Social Media Promotion Shortcuts to Fast-track Follower Growth

Just because social media websites have millions and billions of users, simply creating a profile doesn’t place you in front of millions.

In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

You will start from a grand total of zero followers.

You will have to promote your profile to build a following. To make matters worse, it’s going to be a slow progress in the beginning.

Don’t lose hope, and remember getting your first 500 followers is going to be the toughest. As soon as you start to get some followers, Matthew effect will come to the fore, and you will start to see a steady growth in follower, given that you are consistently producing great content.

Here’s how to promote your social media profiles.

Paid Advertising:


The organic reach might be down at Social media websites, but their paid advertising solutions have improved a lot.

You can reach out to your target audience with great precision.


FB Geo Ads



Simply choose your target audience and run some ads to get your first 100 or 1000 followers. Normally a Page like will cost you less than a dollar on Facebook, and the cost is equally low on other platforms.


Cross Promotions:


One of the easiest and the cheapest methods to get your first few followers is to invite all of your friends or contacts to like/follow your page.

Add your social media profiles in your newsletters or email signatures.


signature links


Your website must link to all of your profiles at a prominent place.

Click to Tweet deserves its own mention since it’s an extremely effective method of using your blog posts to get some Tweets.

Also, promote your profile at one network through the profile at another network, especially if one of them seems to be doing better than the others.

Train and encourage your team members to act as brand ambassadors. You can announce some perks or incentives for team members who will bring a lead through social media.


Offline Advertising:


Add your social media handles to your business cards, brochures, or flyers.

If you’re using traditional advertising mediums like TV ads, billboards, or print ads, make sure that your social media profiles are mentioned along with your website.

Many customers will prefer getting in touch through Facebook Page as compared to your website.




It all adds up to this.

Social media marketing is not easy, but a little bit of planning, consistently producing good content, focusing on engagement rate, and using a social media management tool will make it as simple as possible.
