Effective Ways to Grow Your Social Media FollowingBoost your online following with these tips.

Most nonprofits have some form of social media, whether it’s a Facebook page or Twitter account. In today’s society, social media is more important than ever. Business, organizations, and individuals take to social networks to engage, communicate, and learn. If you’re looking to grow your social media following to raise awareness about your nonprofit, increase donations, and find volunteers, check out these strategic tips that can help you do just that.

Include Visuals

Visual posts are high-performers on social media, so make sure that you start using high-quality images in each post. Believe it or not, but compared to other types of content, visual content is 40 times more likely to get shared than posts without pictures.

Share More Videos

We’re in the day and age where people want to watch videos rather than read a post. Video is one of the most engaging content types, and you can leverage it to attract more people to your page. Gaining lots of views can lead to increased reach, engagement, and exposure for your nonprofit.

Be Responsive

Consumers expect a response from you the same day they ask a question. Be sure to give your followers a fantastic user experience by being responsive – promptly. In addition, respond to comments on posts and publicly recognize people who mention your organization to show your community you are listening.

Use Hashtags

Hashtags can be used to increase your social media followers. Pick popular and relevant hashtags to broaden your reach of interested parties. Hashtags can also be used to participate in trending topics and current events that gets your organization recognized by many. People searching for a particular hashtag (that can change daily) may come across your post and may start following you because of it.
