Make Your Brand Followable in Social Media

There was so many reason that makes a brand “followable” in Social Media. Let us think on followers perspective – “What kind of brand that I will like or follow in social networking like Facebook or Twitter?”

We do like or follow a brand because they share any valuable or educational content. It’s also maybe because that brand offering something that fit with our interest or needs. Another reason, maybe because that brand offering deals, coupons or any other promotions. However, it is common that people do like or follow a brand because they are funny.

Ideally, a good brand to follow in social media have the combination of all those characteristic. But, many people like or follow a brand, simply for its entertainment value. Sometimes we don’t know why, but we follow them. As a matter of fact, we share their updates and indirectly we help them expanding that brand’s social media reach.

Therefore, the next time you’re planning your social media updates, why not you put in a little humor on it. Here we have an example of brand that has a sense of humor in their updates.

But sometimes brands rise to the occasion when being bullied, and actually turn it into something fun and entertaining.
