The more genuine you are on these platforms the more validity you will build within your audience. As you’re developing this relationship, look closely into your audience and learn about what they like. You can do this effectively through your Facebook insight.

When you post things that are off-brand, you might not appeal to your primary audience. For instance, if your audience is older, posting memes and humor posts might not perform as well with them as it would with a younger generation.

Taking the time to learn about your audience will save you from sharing any off-putting posts. Also, be wary of personal accounts that the public can see.

While having individual accounts for different members of your agency can add to your authenticity, there is still a need for each person to act the part and maintain the brand image on their personal pages.
