Everyone is going on about 'content' and while that is absolutely true, you also need to engage.

What I mean by this is if your are on Twitter or Google +, check out profiles of other companies/individuals that are related to your niche.

Where appropriate, Like, retweet, and Google + there posts and content. Leave comments and get in on the action by engaging with what they do.

You will find after a while you will get the same back and your following will slowly build. Your profile and presence will be seen more people and potential new customers will be part of that.

If you are actively involved with the online social community that exists around your product/service niche, you will find that they will eventually start engaging with you.

Having good content, quality posts, attractive images, videos will surely help you to gain followers for any social media account. Also, some other factors like how regular you are updating your page, whether your post is relevant to your website content or not, etc.

Its fairly a simple task.
Making a good popular product is tough for anyone... but popularizing a popular product is a simple task. because it is already a popular one.

Similar wise, Know what product/service/data popular related to your business. post accordingly. Sure you will see the difference in the real followers.

For Ex: Growth Hacking is a new concept in internet marketing & SEO. If you post a blog related to growth hacking in your website, then it will be viewed and shared by many people.

Everyone wants more it's one of the most common. Social Media is used to build brand ambassadors, drive traffic, and convert sales. if you want to grow your website you will need to start treating it like a real business.

Good quality content is a key to success for me, especially, when it's posted regularly. You also shoud stay active all the time and react to all the comments and opinions quickly to let people know that you're trustworthy. Try to drive their engagement through asking them about something linked with your company or subject.

If you want to follow others, then you’re going to have to follow them. This is a simple rule of reciprocation that is common on all social media formats. So, instead of just uploading photos and expecting people to come to you, you also have to put yourself out there. In other words, you have to be active.

Search for users and brands that share your interests and comment, then like and share their photos. Follow Instagram stars and influencers and engage with them, or even ask for a shout-out. You could even look for tags containing tags like: #shoutout, #TagsForLikes, #ilovemyfollowers, and #follow.
