Rachael Johnston's curator insight, October 20, 2014 7:37 PM

This articles gives 38 tips on how to run a professional, but still engaging, social media profile. All businesses should follow these tips in order to attract new followers and keep current ones.

Some of the key tips that were given for each network are:

- Facebook: This network is used to engage with fans. It is important to post entertaining content regularily in order to encourage users to WANT to check out what's new on your page. Key tips: respond to all comments, good and bad, and inform and entertain your audience before trying to sell them something (80/20 rule)

- Twitter: This network is about quick and easy conversation. It is important to frequently post updates and to respond to other users as fast as possible. Key Tips: Use hashtags well, but DO NOT use too many, and don't use all 140 characters, you want to leave space for other users to retweet you.

- Google+ : This network is about "helpful engagement." Make sure that you are sharing valuable information. It is important to include people in conversations in order to encourage engagement. This can be done by menitoning them frequently. Key Tip: use "hat tips" when sharing other users' work in order to thank others and give them recognition.

- Instagram: The profiles on this network are about telling and sharing a story. A business should pick a unique and relevant theme and creat high quality photos around this theme. This will make people want to follow the story. Key tips: Dont post too many photos, people get annoyed when their feed is filled by one user, and use hashtags for branding properly. The best number of hashtags to use on Instagram is 11! - notice the difference between this and Twitter. Twitter is about using one or a few strong, effective hashtags while Instagram is about using more to brand yourself properly and attract attention to the photo.

LinkedIn: This network is professional not personal, although it is still important to be personable. You want to present yourself as a destinct professional within your industry. Key Tips: personalize your connetion requests by telling them why you want to connect and use groups as a place to contribute information rather than a place to promote your company.

Pinterest: This network is used for curating content. Key tips: always link back to the origina source and give credit and don't use images that have nothing to do with your click through content to get more pins and clicks.
