Have An Online Presence
You have to be present to engage your Facebook friends. Acknowledge their efforts in commenting on your post by liking their comments and also answering their questions. You could also mention them in your response. It increases their morale and would always bring them back because they know you have time for them.
You have to be consistent in your posts. You don’t post once a month and expect to have hundreds of comments flowing. Posting twice a day is often encouraged but you could twist it to your convenience. However you do it, make sure your audience have you at the back of their minds daily. I’ve heard people tell me they come online only to read my posts and they always have it. So, be consistent and they will take you serious.
In your posts, ensure the facts you give are correct. Be sensitive to details and accuracy such that when people crosscheck your facts, they will come to trust you. A little research can improve the content of your write ups.
Know Your Timing
You must know the best time to post. However, this must be determined by your knowledge of your audience. What is the best time your friends are mostly online? For me, i reach a greater number of my friends between 7-9am and 6-9pm. Basically, people tend to be more online in the morning and late in the evening when they are back from work and other engagements.
Follow The Trends
Be up to date with trending events and give your opinions. It shows you are current and people like to engage in current happenings.
