7 Social Media Best Practice Tips

Generic Facebook Photo


  1. Your photo should be a fairly recent picture of you.
  2. Following and friending the competition is okay.
    Let them follow you as well.
  3. Promote other people more than yourself. Don’t use your page as a platform to spit out ads.
  4. Link to clients you’re mentioning, people who inspire your material, products you’re discussing, etc.
  5. Be clear about endorsements.
  6. The top reason people stop following a company is due to over-posting. Find the right balance for each network.
  7. Share and comment to get others to do the same.
