I think that the promotion has to be profitable for anyone to continue to expand the number of people following. If you can make it profitable then that allows you to further invest in promoting your offer to more people.

Too many times I think social media is an expense to get more followers, that doesn't provide a profit. That restricts growth - ime.

For example, here is a great article about how to set up advertising campaigns on facebook to generate your first sale.

But, if youíre looking for something that is going to be reliable and consistent, then you might not know where to focus your attention for your e-commerce store marketing strategy. Many ecommerce store owners have found that Facebook Advertising is an effective means of generating revenue Ė and odds are the platform will be beneficial for you, too.

Research from Chartbeat shows 3 p.m. to 1 a.m. is the optimal time to share on social media, with social traffic being at its highest in the late afternoon.

To be able to increase your followers in social media the profile brand must be popular and reputable in the chosen field in which the users will recommend your page as a good source.

Increasing followers you should create awesome profiles on major social sites (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin etc) with required information about your business purpose. You have to keep active on social media sites with awareness by sharing useful information. From that, even engagement will be managed.

I can help you with Instagram
Get Quality photos, good description and hashtags most popular.
I'm using Automated software to reach my number of followers.
You'll need to have good settings. Because if you don't have good settings setup you might get banned very soon. I mean on follow/unfollow ratio!

There are few good ways for this mentioned below:

1) Be regular and consistent.
Part of social mediaís effectiveness is being able to keep your name and message in front of your followers. A post here and there a couple times of week will get lost in the millions of other posts. Further, whatever social media strategy you set up, you need to stick with as long as it works. There are many dormant Twitter accounts and Facebook fan pages. No wants to follow those.

2) Speak to your market.
People arenít that interesting in knowing what you had for breakfast, unless of course youíre a food blogger. When it comes to social media marketing, the goal is to keep your market informed about the topics related to your business. For example, most of the stuff I share on social media has to do with home business or telecommuting because thatís why people follow me.

3) Match the message and format to the proper network.
What works on Twitter, doesnít necessarily work on Linkedin.

Not only do the types of messages you send vary across networks, but frequency as well. You can post 10 to 15 Tweets a day and not bother anyone. However, 10-15 LinkedIn posts might appear obnoxious. Take the time to learn and study the social media networks you use and fit your posts to each.

4) Have your social media follow buttons everywhere you can.
This includes every page of your website (Iím surprised when I have to hunt down social media follow buttons on a website).

Your website isnít the only place to include links. Your social networks may allow links to other network profiles. Finally, include links to your social profiles in your email.

5) Follow influencers and share their content.
If you are knowledgeable and up-to-date in your business industry, you should know who the influencers are. Or you can use a resource such as Buzzsumo to find influencers in your topic area. Once you follow them, share their content with your followers. Many will follow back and share your content as well.

6) Remind your email subscribers about your social media accounts.
It doesnít hurt to promote your email list on your social media as well.

7) Respond to your followers.
One of my pet peeves is tagging or contacting a company through social media and never getting a response. Why bother having social media if youíre not going to be social? Respond to comments, questions or mentions made by your followers. Theyíll be offended if you donít.

8) Use hashtags where appropriate.
Twitter is the king of hashtags, which is helpful since the conversation moves at lightning speed. Hashtags help people find content on the topics that are of interest to them. Use of hashtags on other social media sites can be helpful, but donít overdo it.

Remember, people want to see real content.

9) Make it easy for others to share your content.
This seems like a no-brainer, but just the other day I was on a site that had no share links. Fortunately for them, I use Hootsuiteís Hootlet, but not everyone does. And most visitors arenít going to deal with the hassle of copying and pasting your URL to their social media. Make it easy for them to share your content by including social share links on your blog or website.

10) Use your stats to identify popular posts and topics. One of the biggest frustrations in social media is not knowing what will go viral and what wonít. The best rule of thumb is to post helpful, relevant content for your market. With that said, your social media and website stats can help you determine whatís popular.
