In the last post of 21 Things You Must Do to Get Amazing Results from Your Social Media Marketing, I discussed 7 tips for creating engaging content on social media, for this post, I will discuss how to grow your social networks organically.

You can grow your social networks organically and/or pay for exposure via advertising on various social networks.  Organic growth is the most affordable because you don’t have to pay money for it, and if you consistently post good content, you will be able to easily grow your network organically.

Here are 7 simple tips to grow your social networks organically.

 Offline Tips:

    1. Encourage people to connect with you online by placing your social network information on your business card.  If you are out networking and meeting new people, then your business card is a great promotional tool to promote and encourage connecting with you on social networks.
    2. If you do speaking engagements for your business, be sure to promote connecting with you on your social networks by placing your social network information at the beginning and/or at the end of your presentation.
    3. If you have a retail space or an office that is open to the public, place signs around your establishment encouraging your customers to connect with you on social networks. 

Online Tips:

4.  Promote connecting with you on social networks by adding links to your social networks on your e-mail signature line.  You probably send out tons of e-mails every day, adding your social networks to your e-mail signature is an easy and effective way to promote connecting with you.

5.  Email your current customers inviting them to join you on a social network.  It helps to offer some type of incentive for joining like a discount, coupon, e-Book, report, checklist, etc.

6.  Encourage your current fans and followers on your social networks to promote your page to their network. 

7.  Post good content and encourage your network to share your information with their network, by asking them to like, share, retweet, repin, etc.
