Be real:
Don’t build castles in the air, show your audience real things you do. Two real happenings are better than twenty fake events. Realize that audience is intelligent enough to differentiate between real and fake things. Do not post fake reviews, comments, etc. which you think can add value to the brand.

Utilize email:
