332. 103 Social Media Questions to Boost Engagement (for the D.I.Y. Rock Star) (video: and podcast: )

We know we tell you all that social media is not the “be all, end all,” but as D.I.Y. Rock Stars, it is STILL one of great ways to attract new people who might be interested in our art, as well as to nurture the folks who follow us.  This post helps us maximize our time and effort, because, as we KNOW, the more engagement we get, the MORE our posts are shared.  Here are some social media questions that can help increase interest in our posts. 

Check out the episode for the full discussion.

These questions are ESPECIALLY good to put in Facebook groups, as it helps keep your followers engaged. (--I use these in our Be the Next D.I.Y. Rock Star Facebook group, as well as in the Facebook group for our band, Bourgeoisie Paper Jam.)

These posts fall into 10 different categories. Our goal today is to give some examples of each kind, but if you click on the blog post that accompanies this episode, you can access the ENTIRE list of 100 different questions.
