Step # 3 – Post engaging content on your social media accounts
Create unique and engaging posts to your own social media accounts in order to get the social media influencers to follow and endorse your profile. This is a prudent way of building your social media traffic and to make a worthwhile social influencer outreach campaign. Remember, no matter how you like, tweet, re-pin, re-post and share the social media influencers’ social media activities, they will not find any value of sharing and endorsing your own site if it is not worth sharing with others.
