Instead of just posting to go to your webpage or try your product/service, try posting about your company. Some examples of good post are questions about their favorite things, plans for holidays, or other things you can relate to your company to get them thinking about your business.
  4. Give them a reason to stick around. A great way to gain a following on social media is to offer special deals through your page. You can try announcing sales only on social media, offering coupons or other discounts. You can also make important product releases only on social media.
