You have met those follower-conscious people on social media. Can you blame them? Follower count is considered one of the metrics to see how good you are able to manage your accounts. In today’s time, the more followers you have, the more benefits you can get.
Here’s a list of probable reasons why you are losing followers:
1. You are not listening
People love talking about themselves, so pay attention to what others are telling you. Learn how to give proper criticism and thank the people who appreciate your content.
2. You are boring
A good sense of humor is likely admired on social media. Share some giggles with your followers. Be playful and creative, not dull.
3. You overuse hash tag
Hash tags are helpful when it comes to promoting your content, and many people would likely notice you. But most of the time, your followers would find it annoying when your post is flooded with hashtags especially if these are not relevant to the content.
4. You are careless.
Given that we are humans, to make mistakes is okay but only to the level of not putting others down. Think before you enter a talk.
5. You don’t update regularly
Don’t disappoint your followers for a dead feed. Give them something to look forward to in everyday. Being regularly updated is not the same with being a spam.
6. You are not being yourself
Do you tailor your style when dealing with other people on social media? It is important to be able to express yourself. Keep it real every step of the way, but be appropriate.
7. Your readers are no longer interested
Social media is not only about you. You also have to consider your reader’s interest. You can gather suggestions from your readers to know what you can do for them.
