Frequency and consistency
As most marketers know, consistency is the key to social media success – and Facebook agrees. They say as long as you are sharing creative content, posting daily is a great idea.
Liking or responding to you fans’ comments is a great way to keep your audience active and engaged.
Post Video Content
Now that users can post stories on both Facebook and Instagram, share reals and post to IGTV, they suggest using video content more frequently as a means of increasing engagement. It’s important to note the differences on each app.
