• Proper timing: Posting on social media will be effective if the fans and followers engage with your post. If more people get engaged and involved with it, it will get much higher ranking. For that you must understand what time they will actually be involved. Timing is the most important thing in this case.

There are also other groups where you can share your posts, but make sure that they actually have the followers that your want. You can also find more information about many topics by visiting the group and read relevant articles.

It is important for you to decide which on the campaigns is actually worth spending on and will get you good results. You can also go for sponsoring to get audience’s attention.
