5 Ways to Engage with Someone You Follow and Boost Monetization on Social

1. Leave Meaningful Comments

When you follow someone on social media, don't just be a passive observer. Engage by leaving thoughtful comments on their posts. Really read their content and photo captions, and extend the conversation from there. Let's be real, you're following for a reason right? There's something about this person that brought you there. Meaningful comments not only show your appreciation but also increase your visibility. Other followers may notice your insightful remarks and check out your profile, leading to potential collaborations or partnerships. Three to five word comments do really well for the algorithm on posts.

2. Cross-Promote Their Content

When you find an article, video, or post from someone you follow that resonates with you, share it with your audience. Cross-promotion benefits both parties: you provide valuable content to your followers, and the original creator gains exposure. Tag them in your post or story, and encourage your followers to follow them too. Over time, this reciprocity can lead to collaborative opportunities and increased monetization potential. Selflessness over selfishness is how you win in this game.

3. Choose Favorites and Spotlight Them

Identify creators whose work aligns with your niche or interests. Regularly feature them in your content—whether through shout-outs, interviews, or collaborative projects. By showcasing others, you build a sense of community and foster goodwill. Plus, when you spotlight someone, they're more likely to reciprocate, introducing their audience to your profile. It's a win-win situation for engagement and monetization.

4. Initiate Conversations

Don't wait for others to reach out to you. Take the initiative to start conversations with fellow creators. Send direct messages, participate in their live sessions, or join their virtual events. Building relationships opens doors for joint ventures, sponsored content, and affiliate partnerships. Remember, social media is about connections, so be genuine and authentic in your interactions. It's always collaborations over competition with me.

5. Take Online Relationships Offline

While social media is a powerful tool, face-to-face interactions remain essential. Attend industry events, conferences, or meetups where you can connect with creators in person. These offline interactions deepen relationships and create lasting impressions. When you meet someone you've engaged with online, it solidifies your connection and opens up opportunities for collaboration, workshops, or joint ventures.

In Conclusion

Engaging with others on social media isn't just about building followers—it's about building a community. By actively participating, cross-promoting, and fostering meaningful connections, you'll enhance your monetization potential.It's not just about the numbers; it's about the quality of your interactions.

And maybe it's time to clean house, because true indeed, everyone's reasons for being on social media differ, but if you're on professional mode and you're a creator, whose mission is to make money with your presence, creativity, expertise and essence, and people are kind of just lurking with no engagement, it's not helping to be honest. So if you have to remove 100 stagnant, non active, phantom pages, so be it! Let's get to these goals! Most times it be the strangers that engage and support with your content the most too, so just because you have family and friends on your page, don't be married to the idea of just keeping individuals on your friends list for a numerical digit or sentimental reasons if there is zero contribution.

(Unless that's just what you want to do, it's a personal choice)
