Ultimately, this leads to increased customer trust and loyalty.
2) Keep Your Postings Steady
Steady and consistent postings, preferably at least once a day, are great for building your brand. Once every other day is ideal, as well, but posting too many times can be too distracting to your customers and turn them away.

Keeping this in mind, photos of your employees with their friends and family isn’t a bad idea.
7) Learn to Use Hashtags

You should include pictures with captions that show your understanding of your brand and your clients. This will also help in targeting your audience for higher engagement and conversion.
