These techniques will help you get more followers on your Twitter account, increase your Facebook post likes, and even garner more engagements in your Instagram account.

Let’s start building your empire of followers now. Here’s how:


Facebook Customized Audiences

Facebook is by far the best platform for hard businesses because it can be used solely for marketing purposes. Facebook not only allows you to have access to your loyal followers, but it also allows you to engage with people who can be your potential customers. With a Facebook like page, you’ll have more exposure and online presence.

Furthermore, among the three platforms, Facebook allows you to let non-followers view your posts. This way, you’ll have more chance of getting new followers day after day.  Also, Facebook has several features solely for the purpose of engagement such as video views and reactions. It is possible for you to get a vast number of Facebook reactions through your like page.

Why Make a Facebook Like Page?

If you want to promote your brand on Facebook efficiently, then a like page is a surefire way to do that. One of the best ways to gain more followers is to boost your number of likes, and what better way to do that than to create a page dedicated mainly to garnering likes, right?

For a very affordable fee, you can already make your posts visible to more people that are used to be out of reach. Potential customers can easily type in your business/brand name, and your page will instantly appear. Doing this can also increase Facebook post likes because it can reach your desired market right away. Once a person likes your page, he/she will become a follower; thus, it is easy for him/her to keep track of your posts.



  1. You have to make sure that your Facebook page is appealing and inviting.
  2. Your posts have to be engaging and also relevant so that your target market will not only like one post, but will also follow your page as a whole.
  3. Observe standard social media management rules as well. Share 1-2 posts a day in times your target market would open their Facebook.
  4. Don’t be afraid to click the Facebook post button and experiment on your posts.



Other than Facebook, Twitter is another platform that is perfect for promotional purposes. The great thing about Twitter is that you can get followers faster than any other social media platforms. This is because it allows you to follow as many people as you like and vice versa.

How to gain more followers on Instagram?

One of the trendiest ways to gain more followers on Instagram is to increase views on Instagram videos and pictures alike. One efficient way to do this is to make use of the hashtag (#) symbol. The hashtag is an incredibly powerful tool for it allows you to reach out to people of similar interests. Hashtags also allow your business to follow the latest trends and ride with them or to start some interesting trends that people can follow.

For instance, during the 2016 Rio Olympics, everyone in social media was talking about it. Because the Rio Olympics were the latest global trend, the hashtag #Rio2016 was a hit. If your business supports a certain athlete, you can post a photo or video featuring your brand supporting an athlete or a particular team in the Olympics. Making use of the hashtag will allow you to increase views on Instagram videos through the high-quality and interesting pictures and videos that you post.



  1. Be updated with the latest trend so that you’ll know the perfect hashtags to include in your posts.
  2. Use some Instagram marketing tools such as Schedugram, Crowdfire, etc.
