  • Posts: how long should your message be? How to write engaging posts that will get people talking and sharing.
  • Media: What kind of images work best? How long should videos be? How to create strong visuals to help engage people and encourage them to share your page?
  • Hashtags: should you use them and how? What hashtags should you use to help people find your page and join the conversation?
  • Growing follower number: How to promote your page (eg. on other social media platforms and on your website)
  • Purpose: Define a clear strategy? What are you hoping to achieve by investing time in growing your social media pages? Eg. to encourage people to join your group and take action, and to encourage people to participate, letting supporters know what they can do to help.
