Ask your fans questions
This is such an easy way to connect with your fans, they love it! Even if you have no idea what you’re doing, just ask some simple questions. They’ll reply their own question which adds another dimension to your page.
This works best if your fanpage is guided towards one specific topic. It also helps if these queries are seeded by an actual problem that people are trying to solve or achieve. Your followers will appreciate that you took the time to ask how they got off track.
Guided questions work very well when connecting through pages instead of individuals.
Followers feel more engaged and satisfied when they were asked a relevant question and provided with a helpful answer. If they know that someone else has a similar issue then they feel better about themselves for having had the courage to address the problem.
Encourage fan engagement
Facebook has algorithm changes that will improve your audience’s experience, so you should try to engage with your fans more often. One way to do this is by giving gifts!
You can give special gifts, only available through their email, to people who like or comment on your page. This could be an autograph gift, but it could also be a ticket to one of your events or discounts on things like food or gear.
The best ones are geared toward your audience and offer something new, while still being appreciated. You can find ideas online and help from creatives is here; but if you don’t have any tips, we recommend offering digital items as incentives.
These can be tickets to events, where you hold giveaways, or merchandise bundles. The possibilities are endless! [title] Create videos
YouTube is a great resource for viral videos. They get millions of views every day, which means there are lots of potential audiences out there.
Create a video explaining what makes your band/product/service unique and valuable. Or create a music video featuring some of your most popular songs.
Provide answers to questions
Once you have created an account, you will need to ask members of your fan page what kind of questions they have. You can choose to include rules about questioning, such as no quizzes with 1 star ratings, but otherwise anything goes.
Most people will appreciate being asked substantive question that attempt to engage them in a dialogue related to their favorite topics. People may feel more compelled to answer if they are provided with a personal aspect to it.
For instance, provide them with a question along the lines of “which is your most memorable memory from this past year” or “what was the best thing that happened to you this year?” It creates a sense of community and everyone feels like they should share something interesting with each other.
It helps reveal how much we know already!
Ask follow up questions to make the conversation interesting. There is a very good chance they will tell you – whether you want to hear it or not.
Do not worry about asking seen-you-today questions, folks will generally tell you whatever you want to hear. They had better things to do than think about it.
You can also incentivize questions with awards. For example, give out a prize to whoever asks the best question.
In conclusion, providing others with a way to contact you is a nice human touch. People like knowing someone else cares enough to get back to them.
Check for updates on things your fans are interested in
This is one of the best ways to find out what people are talking about or thinking about you or your business. People share articles that they like through comments on their posts, tweets, messages, and emails. If an article catches someone’s eye, they will often comment on it or reach out via another channel to express their interest in the topic.
You can also help others get more ideas by having conversations in the forums or groups set up by social media platforms. Those settings provide another way for users to interact with each other.
These channels allow users to ask questions ahead of time as well as give feedback and opinions. It also provides data for businesses looking to develop new products or services.
By being aware of current topics and trends, you can take action and create content related to them. You can then promote this content through existing channels or start new ones.
Post fan art
Art is a very important part of any blogging journey, and you should make time to create it. Add some creativity into your schedule by drawing or painting; take a photography class or buy a photo book to go along with your page.
There are also many resources available online that can help you get started. You can find apps that turn your photos into digital artwork or design templates based on pictures.
These kinds of things may seem superfluous, but they set you up on a good footing because then you can move on to creating more elaborate works.
Base your art on something you like or enjoy, even if you don’t know how to draw or paint. Then build upon your skills and confidence from there.
Your fans will appreciate seeing what you have created, and they’ll feel connected to you through your efforts. They’ll look forward to new pieces that you put out, as well as feeling informed when it comes to you putting together posts using one of their favorite colors.
The most basic way to use art on your website is to post individual images. If you want to give people something extra special, try combining several images in a single post.
You can do this with high-resolution photographs, paintings, illustrations, screenshots etc. These elements combine to tell a story or convey an idea.
In fact, the easiest and free way to bring visual content onto your webpage is via graphic stock photographs
Post fan content
Having original content will help your fans connect with you on a more personal level. By having photos, cards, drawings, and other fan creations posted on your page, they are being introduced to your personality and love of music.
You can post upcoming performances, songs you like, recent pictures or videos, and things you do in your life that relate to your fandom.
It’s also helpful if you post messages requesting donations to support your art career. You want as many people as possible to see your work, which is why you should put it up online for free!
***DON’T POST IMAGES OF YOUR PRIVATE LIFE WITHOUT PERMISSION***
This includes selfies, clothing items, details about your life, and images related to your hobbies and interests. People may trust you more once they know what you look like, where you come from, and what you have interest in.
Put yourself out there by posting interesting facts, stories, quotes, and secrets. That way viewers will feel some sort of connection to you.
And since you’ll be investing time into building a fanbase, spend that time creating quality content that you hope to inspire others with.
Encourage your fans to post comments
It’s hard to get noticed as an author if you don’t have any followers. To make people want to comment on your posts, give something away.
Offer promo codes that net fan reviews or subscribers. You can even do “steals” where you release books at a discount for a day and then increase the price.
People love getting things for free; this approach works well with social media too. People will feel like they got something cool when they open up their news feed and see a post about how your book is giving them a chance to pick up for free.
They’ll also feel motivated to come back and read more often to see what new content you put out. The best way to motivate someone to keep coming back to your page is to be consistent.
Put up great updates and provide valuable info, but don’t beat around the bush. Tell your fans exactly why you wanted to write the page and what it means to them. Most of them are already attracted to your brand and story, so making them feel better would just be wasting your time and theirs.
Thank your fans
Facebook makes it easy to thank your fans, which is nice because they’re doing this for you. There are several ways to say thanks.
You can give a little gift of gratitude or welcome them when they log in. (Thank you gifts don’t have to be expensive.) You can also send them a personal message thanking them. Finally, one of the more fun options is sending a group email saying hello and letting them know who you are and what you’re about.
Any of these options can work well as posts with photos that lead into comments help people talk about themselves. Everyone loves hearing others talk about themselves!
Social media has made it easier than ever to connect with others, but it will also make you rely more on it. More and more people are using social media instead of real-world interactions to connect with others, so keeping connected isolated individuals is changing the way we think about friendship and relationships.
This over dependence on technology is already becoming a problem, especially among youth. Because everyone feels like they need to keep going faster and faster every day, they don’t take time to interact face to face or call each other anymore. It used to be that someone would text me during lunch to see if I was up to anything before getting started themselves. Now that person hasn’t left their office yet? Let’s grab something to eat!
Facebook is full of events that you can attend, posts that you can make, and discussions that you can join. If you want to draw people in and keep them coming back, you’ve got to be consistent.
That doesn’t mean that you have to do all of these things, it means that you need to show your friends and family what you’re doing and why you care about them enough to spend time with them.
It also means that you have to know yourself and what you like to read and watch, then tell others so they can see what interests you.
Put yourself out there and risk failing at something? Yes, but that makes you more interesting not less. Most successful bloggers are always having an adventure and giving people a look into their world.
You just have to decide how you plan to spread the word. There are many ways to get the message out to your fans, from starting a blog (see below), to setting up a page on FB, to sending emails, tweets, and posts.
And don’t forget to put up pictures! Pictures say a thousand words. They are well understood by most people as studies prove we process images faster than texts.
The best way to succeed in changing peoples’ perceptions of you is through your photos/videos. When you upload ones that are meaningful or fun, people feel connected to you and love you,
