If you want to be successful with your social media activities, you need to take stock in the end of each month to evaluate the efficiency of your activities so you can plan your time better for the following month.
Each of social media platforms has its own stats that you can check. I have written an article how you can do it - Social Media MAP.
This month I would like to focus on building connections through your social media platforms.
Sometimes we connect with followers aimlessly just for the sake of having large following, Last week I was running Facebook Adventure challenge where I was mentioning the importance of connecting with people.
Be curious about people. Show interest first! Reach out!
Create a habit to do it weekly then it will take you less time if you do it on regular basis.
Choose one or two platforms and send private messages to people who connected with you recently. Just by doing this exercise I've noticed that some of my connections have connected with me both on Facebook and LinkedIn but we have't exchanged messages.
I personally assume whoever reach out to connect follow up with a short message. But we can be proactive and start conversation ourselves.
What about you? How do you connect with people via social media? Do you proactively seek new connections?
