SMM Update Schedule
New Video / Products – Anytime you release a new video / product – post it! Post it often during the week prior and the week after, including links to review and to the actual product page.
Random Thoughts – Don’t go crazy. But random thoughts can keep people’s attention. Does not always have to be about your business. Over doing this can drive people away.
The idea is to keep your image and name in front of the readers. Don’t follow too many people. Start out with 6 to 10 people to follow. When new people follow you let others know about them, “thanks for the follow @new-user”. You dont have to follow someone just because they are following you.
