Tips for Making Friends on Social Networks

Some people develop a strategy that having many friends on social networks helps them become popular, promote their business and bring traffic to their website. However, it depends on what you want to promote and the networks particularly.
Say you want to promote a personal blog, company brand and product on Facebook, Twitter and other social networking websites, then keep reading some useful how-to-do tips.
Tips for Making Friends on Social Networks:
Real Friends: Friends in real life make an integral part of your social network.
Search for people you know: Don’t add neither random people nor those whose profiles do not provide you with the least information. Getting thousands of friends on board is a real mess. Instead, start adding the people you know personally, the likelihood that they will show interest in your postings is high.
Develop warm relationship: Be attentive to your friends’ activities and they will turn to you as well.
Interests: Expand your network, start adding people with similar interests. It’s a wise and an effective approach.
Location: If you want to promote your business to be popular say in the US, add people from America, again paying attention to likes and interests.
Deep Analysis: Analyze if your product can become popular among your virtual friends: gender, interests, age, everything matters.

News Feed: Check out news feed, leave comments and like whatever you find is worth it.This way catch attention, bring people to your page and engage them in conversation.
Commenting: Know what to write and how. Many people leave comments and do not get any feedback, just because their comments either seem non-relevant or too primitive, for instance “wow,” “cool,” etc. When writing comments start with the name and make the comment catchy, for instance “Emily, I really enjoyed watching this video, thank you!”
Sharing: Besides sharing your company page, share whatever you like. This way sharing one and the same pages will not seem boring.
Smart research and analysis of social network friends will help you get a quality audience that will always return to you.

    I totally agree! The amount of friends you have on social media does not correlate to success. Anyone can hire a professional seo company to add thousands of facebook friends, but without the involvement and interaction it doesn't go very far. The best marketing on social media is getting real people to spread your name for you. Thank you!
