Stacey on Social

October 19, 2022

Engagement on social media is more important than ever. If you want to rise above the noise of 2020 your goal should be to not only improve your likes but also your comments, saves and shares. Here are over 100+ questions that you can ask on social media to get the conversation going and why to use them. 

Why Engagement is King

When people engage with your posts, it does 3 great things:

1. It indicates to the social platform that your profile has quality content. Your post then gets shown to more and more people.

2. You get the opportunity to have an open conversation (networking) with your community, building the know, like and trust factor with them.

3. Social proof! When your content has engagement this shows new people to your profile that other people enjoy your brand, your page and your content. This helps to grow your community!

Why are People on Social Media

People are on social media to connect with people, not products or services. Ask yourself why are they following your brand on social media? They want to connect to the people in their lives, people they know, people they like, people they trust. 

This is known as the know, like, trust factor (KLT). The more your audience knows you, appreciates what you have to offer PLUS knows that you know what you are talking about, you will position yourself as an expert in your field. Your audience needs to like what you are sharing on Social Media and what you have to offer. You must prove to your audience that they can trust you. That you do know what you are talking about. That your products and services are something that you are 100% behind. Let them trust that you are there to help them with their pain points or help them receive what they are looking for!

Once they get to know, like and trust you on social then they will be more inclined to check out your website for your products and services. The best way to connect is by being personal. One great way to be personal is by asking questions and using those questions to get to know your community and they in turn to get to know you.
