The best way to increase engagement on your social media posts is to be consistent and respond quickly to comments from your followers. 

Be unique with your responses (no copying and pasting) and try and reply as soon as possible. 

But what if you have no comments to reply to? The best way to encourage comments is by asking a question for your followers to answer. 

On Facebook, Instagram or Twitter ask your followers what they think. It could be about your favourite product, new stock, an upcoming event, or a new service you plan to offer - it doesn't matter what you're asking about, so long as you're asking your followers something. 

By keeping the conversations flowing with your followers, you will see the engagement on your posts increase.
