Interact with Your Audience
This is, of course, as simple as it sounds. Once you start getting followers, comments, make sure you reply and interact with your audience. This will help you create trust and a strong bond with your followers. Remember, it is also a two way street. If they comment, be sure to return the favor, visit their profile, comment on their photos, videos, and even follow them. That will allow you to understand your audience, create better content, and stay ahead of the curve.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. By letting your audience know that you are not the expert, that will open a channel for users willing help have their voices heard. It is OK to be honest.
