  • Make sure you know the age range, gender, occupation and location of your target audience before creating any content – don’t annoy people or promote yourself too much.
  • Your content needs to address the troubles of your audience, and answer any FAQs they may have. Start by writing a certain number of blog posts a week on various subjects – and don’t forget your target keywords!
  • On Facebook, don’t forget to tag other people and pages.
  • For Twitter, use Twitter Cards or Promoted Tweets to up the engagement on your content.
  • With LinkedIn, review your calendar on a weekly basis and connect with people you’ve met.
  • Following and featuring customers is a clever way to optimise your Instagram account.
