Valentine’s is an over the top holiday in everybody’s situation. If you are in a relationship, it is a day for you to show how much you care for your significant other. Buying highly-priced flowers and candies are what make Valentine’s Day sales so effective. If you are single you watch all the couples participate in the most romantic holiday of the year, or looking for a date to take you out on this special day. On Jenn’s Trends blog, she discusses how social media and Valentine’s Days are similar. She considers Valentine’s Day as a date, and says social media should be looked as a “date” as well. Even if you are single on Valentine’s Day, you can still be taken out on a date. This can be like gaining followers on social media. Once you start to get to know a person you can be considered in a relationship. When reaching out and posting more on your social media, you can begin to gain a long-term relationship with it and your followers. Instead of making your Valentine’s Day date come to an end, you can continue it to become a relationship, just like one can on social media.
In order to gain a relationship with someone you must get to know them. This goes for social media as well. You must follow specific steps in order to form lasting relationships with your followers in order to make your market grow.
- Post on your media frequently
- Ask/answer questions
- Get to know your followers
- Market yourself and make your social media known
Once you are marketing and making a name for yourself, your social media can move from the cliché Valentine’s Day date, to one of those in a relationship. So instead of making your date on Valentine’s Day your last, try to make the effort to make it a lasting one, both on social media and in person.
