Keep your business profile updated with post related to your business and that can keep your audience engaged with your content.
2. Don’t Reply Angrily to Negative Comments
The title says it all, don’t reply angrily to negative comments. One thing you need to note is all brands will surely have positive and negative comments, the only thing you need to act with caution is when you receive negative comments.
If you reply angrily, you have marked your brand as what the negative comment says.
Instead of replying angrily, try to solve the problem of the person.

Yes! Buying followers & likes are really bad for business and they have no effect in your brand making sales.
They are just numbers, number is not everything and you need to work hard to make sure you get the right audience to your social media accounts.
