Companies should always actively engage their audience by commenting or mentioning them on posts, as well as perpetuating shares, and encouraging likes and plus ones. By doing so, a company generates a friendly and hospitable user experience that makes people feel more comfortable. Use multimedia – Effective social media optimization requires diversity. By this, it means that companies shouldn’t keep themselves confined to using mere grey text—adding new pictures, video, and all other forms of alternative media is a great start.
