Your profile means everything:
Have a completed profile in every network. Complete them on a graphical end too.

Make your profile complete enough to launch conversation later. Your conversations shouldn’t look so alien all of a sudden.
Make it a two-way community:
Having control over anything feels good. But with social media communities, it doesn’t work the same way.

Make your posts in the same time across days of the week or even the month. Make your followers and secret admirers stay sure, you would have a post at this time of the hour. This would help to force them draw their schedule towards your page. Have a consistent subject for at least 1 daily post of yours. Follow similar template when it comes to your infographics.
Get more pros into your network:
Try to add more experts of the field into your network. Check for their popularity and willingness to socialize with you. Getting them to promote your posts is very helpful in marketing. Growing a network is important, but developing an intelligent network for the core defines a good direction.
