Socializing with your followers on social media should be a key component of your social media marketing strategy (and a small part of your overall SEO strategy).

The people on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram giving your page love are on there to be social, to be entertained and to read or see something worth interacting with or sharing. Having a page that is interesting to your audience is what will get them to like, comment on, and share your stuff. The number one mistake companies make is using their social sites solely to promote their products and not providing value to their followers.

Unfortunately, gaining followers on social media sites just isn't what it used to be, and the landscape is constantly changing. So how do you win a game that seems so easy to lose? The answer is: strategy, budget, and social media savviness.

After doing more research, I realized that Facebook actually did something right.
