Is verification a big deal for your social media pages?
In my opinion – yes! Due to the fake news and imposters online, obtaining verification is a big deal. Being verified is something that most people or brands aspire to obtain. It is probably the digital way of communicating: “I am the real one” without saying a thing. It gives you instant credibility, in turn, increasing all aspects of engagement. You’re probably wondering, how do I get my page verified? That’s why you’re reading this. Getting your page verified may be hard however it is not impossible!
Steps on how to get verification on Twitter:
Step 1: Make sure you have filled out your profile picture, cover photo, name, website, and bio.
