Follow in return
In case someone has followed your account, follow back as they have followed you because they liked your brand or music.
In case you post on Instagram make sure you share that post on Facebook and in case you post it on Facebook, try to link the post through a tweet as well. It will help your audience find you everywhere.
Invest in promoting yourself

Things that you should avoid doing on social media

Do not Spam
