You hear the word “target market” a million times … and for good reason.
The people that you reach on social media are a large percentage of your potential clientele (if you’ve grown your following properly).
Getting those people to comment on your posts is key to expanding your reach.
Why? Because when they comment, their friends see it too.
Those friends may potentially comment or even follow you! Tadddaaaahhhhh … social marketing at it’s finest.
But how do you get them to comment & engage?
Easy. By being social. You need to ask them things that are important or relevant to their lives.
So to ensure I put my money where my mouth is, and provide you a jumping off point, I decided I would create this swipe file of engagement questions that you can schedule (using something like Buffer) for the next month.
Feel free to use these as is or customize them a bit to fit your voice.
The important thing to remember, if you aren’t already asking engagement questions, is that it takes a bit to get people talking. It is normal, and ok, if the first few times you ask a question you only get crickets in return.
As the momentum grows, so will the comments.
Schedule at least one engagement question a day and alternate times so that you can find out when your audience responds most.
You can also use our social media planning tool to get you organized & structured so that you can grow your audience with a plan!
Before we dive in, I want to make sure you understand what “Engagement Questions” are and where to use them. Engagement questions are questions that you will post to ANY social media platform to get your audience responding.
How can you use the answers? Easy. These answers that your audience provide can help you understand your target market, their pain points, interests & needs, but also you can use them to create blog posts. Most importantly, they will get your audience interacting with your social media profile. This is huge for growth. It also allows you to be personable with them. Don’t just ask the question and run. Intact with them too!
