In last week’s webinar on social media trends, we mentioned that no matter what platform you are on or whatever algorithm changes the social media companies throw at you, if you focus on earning trust and influence then you’ll be fine. A great way to earn the trust of and influence your followers is to share updates, photos, graphics, and videos that are relevant to them.

But how do you do this?

Well, we just happen to have a handy-dandy checklist for you and lots of blog posts that show you how.

When you are trying to create messaging that is more relatable to your readers, use the following characteristics:
