Social Media Basics

There’s a lot of information to be found on the internet, when it comes to your pages or blogs on social media sites.
And I will say right now, that I am no expert….

What I have seen is this….

***  You know when you want to go out, hit the town, dancing and having a great time? what do you do? shower, shave, find the perfect thing to wear, fix your hair, Ladies “put their face on”, polish their nails….

Social media isn’t much different. It needs to be clean. It needs to be attractive. You need to shave of the unneccessry garbage or page clutter that distracts from your message.

When you’re posting about your offers, you want links, like this one, that directs the buyer to your offer. You could have more than one, so you would have another link to those as well.

This is one of the best ways to attract more subscribers and viewers. Moreover, your viewers will know that you pay a lot of attention to quality if your page is always in top shape. Make your pictures clickable too!

Think about it…. you’re sharply dressed when you go out, you’re making an impression, same thing with your social media sites.

***  A social media page must never be stagnant even for only a few days. If your page has no activity, your viewers will see the same material over and over. Always think of new and interesting things to post. If you look at my Twitter page, you’ll see it’s not as pretty as others.

Kinda like waiting for the phone to ring, if you always wear the same clothes, you won’t get very many dates.

***  Watch your mouth, your opinions and how you interract with viewer comments. When you post to social media pages, you can say that you are entitled to your own opinion. But since you are representing your business/company, it is important that you “keep the peace”

***  Maintain your professionalism at all times.
You are advised to connect with your subscribers. But you must keep a professional relationship in your posts, comments, and multimedia content that you upload and post.

You don’t want to come off like the jerk at the bar, the one that had too many, spouting non-sensical and insulting garbage. How many repeat dates will that get you?

***  You cannot control how your subscribers will behave. They may post hate comments, destructive comments, and they may argue with one another. Always be on the watch and take action as soon as possible. Did you remember you have a delete button? Negative comments can destroy your credibility left unchecked.

***  Blog posts that talk about business offers, product offers and services can be really dry and boring. You have to think of ways on how to make dry topics sound interesting.

Well, there ya have it, just a few pointers.
