Oh No You Didn’t! Social Media Marketing Sins Not to Commit

With all the changes that we’ve all felt with Facebook you’re probably feeling the engagement meter has taken a dip. But, were you committing social media no-no’s before this even happened? So what am I talking about you ask?

As mainstream as social media is nowadays it still doesn’t surprise me how so many businesses still manage to make mistakes that will cost them there fan growth.

Social Media Marketing Tips

 

  • Out of control scheduling and link blasting– Third party scheduling posts, statuses, and tweets ┬áis definitely a luxury I love as well, but some businesses have just gone out of control with it. You’ve basically set up your social and leave it on cruise control and then …. well you become unsocial. Not answering comments for days, or thanking for RTs etc…. I’m sure you’ve encountered this.
  • The Facebook Ad Junkie- Yeah so you’ve ran a few contests or promoted some cool stories and by doing so you’ve grown your fan base substantially. But, since the big up tick in new fans there hasn’t been anything interesting that has kept them engaged….. Soo I guess I’ll run another ad~ don’t be that guy
  • The all of sudden semi-automatic promoter- If you’re like me you probably forgot about some of the pages you liked on Facebook and because nothing else was really engaging about it was out of sight. Well out of the blue this page starts throwing out promotions left and right all in your wall space….. Yeah time to unsubscribe or unlike!
  • The Secret Social Promoter- You just posted a an awesome savings coupon or a redemption where all you have to do is say you saw this on a wall, but the employees at the counter have no idea about it.. #fail

These are just a few of the biggest mistakes I’ve seen businesses make. What encounters have you had?

Ciao~
