Maintain the quality of your online presence

Accepting all friend requests on Facebook, auto-following all Twitter followers and circling all those you have circled on Google Plus. All these things have become a trend. This strategy works well when you see big numbers on your social media profile. In my opinion, it is not worth your time.

For example, Facebook has a “subscribe” feature which is remarkable and very useful. This feature is better than adding random people you don’t know. Maintaining your quality starts from day one.

If you maintain your present quality, then your footprint will be better and cleaner online in the future. If you do a great job, people will automatically follow you. Therefore, you should never make the mistake that most social media experts make.

You should also share some such tips related to your niche which will benefit them. You should see their problem as your problem and give your full contribution in solving them.

Self-Promotion vs. Care for Others

All young bloggers and entrepreneurs do their self-promotion. This is a very common mistake. Your social media profile is a very good way through which you can become an expert in the industry.

This will happen when you help others. If you promote your articles through social media, and do not share the article that may be important to your audience or do not respond to their questions, then it means that you are going on the wrong path.

Therefore, you should also share in your timeline how much help and how you have given.

You have to pay attention that your social media profile is for meaningful connections. You should pay attention to this before sharing anything on social media.

Maintain a ratio of 30:70

30%: self-promotion
70%: Promote others

When you do something new or achieve something special, do not forget to share it on all social media platforms. People who are connected with you are very keen to know about your achievements.

Sharing achievements makes a great impression on your subscribers. You have to pay attention that you should never share fake achievements with people.

While sharing the achievements, you will have to pay full attention to how you share that information. If you share your achievements with the egoistic method then you will not get a great result.

You should share your achievements with proof and you should also be polite.
