Social Media Rocks!
Social Media Rocks!

Use social media marketing to your advantage! Over 40 million small businesses are on Facebook. If you are not on Facebook yet at least get on there and create a page. It won’t hurt just to get on there and at least set up a page. You can always go back on later and adjust things. Just get started so that you can build it up slowly and add info and pictures as you go.

What I Like Best

I love the part of being able to communicate live with my customers. Customer interaction is a very good benefit of using social media for business! This in itself (if done properly) will help you build trust with your customers. Don’t leave them hanging, answer their questions as soon as you can. At least make an effort to answer most customer questions or concerns within 24 hours on each social media platform. It’s impossible sometimes to answer 100% of the questions or comments, but at least make an effort to answer a good percentage. This will show customers that you do respond when you can.

I hope you enjoyed the infographic. Check back often for more info, tips, and advice about social media marketing! Drop me a comment below!

Never Apologize For Being Awesome

Never Apologize For Being Awesome

 

Be Great, Be Awesome

Never feel like you need to apologize for being awesome. Be great at whatever you do and let the haters hate!

Excel At What You Do!

Strive no matter what you do. Be the best at your job. Even if you don’t like what you do for a living. Think about it, you are at work already why not do it with enthusiasm and be great at it. That could lead into doing a job you will love! Getting a promotion that you received because you were the best at what you did. Some people just go through the motions at work and don’t put much effort into their job. Don’t be that person! Just think walking around trying to look busy is BORING! If you are going to do that just put some effort into it and it could really pay off in the end.




You Are Better Than You Think You Are

Most people doubt themselves (me included), but you know more than you think you do. Doubt can creep into the mind and hold people back don’t let it happen to you. I don’t know everything, but I know a little about a lot. I guarantee you know specialized knowledge about something of value. Figure out what that is and find a way to get paid for it.





Be Awesome Today

Go out and Be Awesome today! Do something today to accomplish a goal that will get you closer to your overall goal. Own today and walk around like a BOSS!

Use Social Media To Show Off Your Personality!

Basically what I am saying is people like people. Don’t be a robot and post as a business only. Use social media as a way to show your personality and the personality and culture of your business. Post FUN stuff!




How To Be More Personable

There are many ways to be more personable on social media. Do posts that are fun and engaging. Be as social as possible without looking too much like a business. Here are 17 posts you can totally steal. Below are some things to do when posting to be more social and less like a business.

  1. Post pictures of employees
  2. Run fun contests
  3. Talk about some mistakes you have made as a business
  4. Ask people for their opinions
  5. Post pictures at seminars/events

Be “Likable” on Social Media

By posting more as a person your customers will see a human side to your business and you will become more approachable. It’s natural for people to put up a barrier when they think they might be sold. Most people don’t like to be sold. Don’t pitch people all the time be a person.





Barriers Will Fall

By being personable on social media it opens up the dialogue between you and the customer. People will begin to trust your company. They will take down the barriers that they put up at first when they don’t want to be sold. Building trust on social media is very important. It may take some time, but, it will be worth it in the long run. Just like real life it take time to build relationships. The same holds true for social media.





Act As If

Act as if you don’t want to sell them. Act as if you want to just be social. Act as if you really genuinely care! Here is the main part DON’T ACT! Really be like that. What I really am getting at is just be FUN!! Use social media for what it is meant to be “A Social Place”. Just be likable and a person and after awhile it will get easier. The posts and customer engagements will flow like a beautiful chocolate river. Like the one in Willy Wonka! MMMM……..Chocolate!

Are You Fun On Social Media??

Be Fun On Social Media!!

 

How Fun Are You on Social Media?

​I ask this because maybe you aren’t very fun on social media, but may not even know it. Some businesses are so focused on talking about themselves on social media and they don’t know that they are. Look back on some of your old posts and determine if they are fun or boring. Ask yourself if you would like that post if you were a fan of the page.




Pretend You Are On A Date

When you are on a date with someone you want to make a good impression. (At least I hope you do.) Now think of the conversation you will have. Do you want to make it all about you? If you do the other person is going to lose interest pretty fast. Have you ever been around someone and when you talk about something they bring it right back to being about them or their experiences? It’s annoying right! When it happens you basically lose interest in continuing the conversation. Social media is the same thing in a way. You want to keep the conversation going, but not make it all about you and your business.




Keep It Fun!

Post things that get people talking and interested. Here are 17 Post Ideas. You can post fun questions, contests, deals only for your Facebook fans, motivational quotes, fun jokes, funny pictures, videos, etc. Find things that get fans to engage with your business. Get them involved! With the new Facebook Algorithm “comments” are king! Get people to respond with a comment to keep the conversation going to expand your organic reach.




Cause Boring Sucks!

Don’t be boring on Facebook or Twitter like a lot of businesses do! Imagine you are on a date or out with friends. Keep it professional, but fun. Don’t swear too much or be dirty. Being fun on social media gets your customers to remember you and then they actually look forward to your posts! Be FUN, Cause boring sucks!
