Post consistently

It is important to post consistently. Whether it’s daily or a few times a week, be sure to keep showing up for your followers. Follow a posting schedule that is manageable for you, this way you are more likely to keep to it.

Planning and scheduling your posts can help save time, leaving you more opportunity to interact. It also helps to make sure great content is always on your feed even when you are not online.

Get the most out of your content
Make sure you are getting the most out of your content. It is not always about creating new articles and posts but sharing and reposting relevant content, whether that be reusing previous posts or sharing from someone you follow. Your followers are unlikely to see everything you post, so don’t worry about repeating yourself.
