  • Use Emotion – People love emotion. They can relate to it.
  • Ask Questions – Not vague questions. Ask real compelling questions that actually engages your audience.
  • Inspire – Inspire people to sue your product or service.
  • Curate Content – This is a good backup if you need help with the other 6 tips.


Run Contests

Contests are a great way to be compelling. Many fans like a social channel because of a content they participated in.

Creative campaigning. Come up with really creative or even silly campaigns that get people looking at your brand.


Track Everything
