- Interacting with consumers and other business accounts: You’ve have people interested in your posts? That’s great! But somehow that\’s become the easy part. The next and most important step is to keep them interested by keeping the conversation open and replying to comments and DM’s in a timely manner. It also means you need to be consistently on the lookout for accounts with the kind of audience you’re hoping to acquire. An assistant will stay on top of all interaction while curating relationships with similar accounts.

Having an assistant stay on top of these will save you hours of necessary scrolling and investigating.
