So I thought I would come up with my top 3 most common social media marketing mistakes and arrange them in a tidy little list to help people avoid the miscues that I see all too often. Who knows, you may just be able to avoid hiring someone like me if you can fix these yourself!! Social media marketing is all about promotion, but many people either don't promote their profiles or they just haphazardly say "Like us on Facebook!" now and then. Has that ever been enough to get you to engage with a brand on Facebook? Exactly.
Anytime you write a new Phone Number List blog post, promote it. Anytime you add a new product, site page, service, etc. - promote it. Post links to your feeds and talk them up a little (don't just spam your links with no content)! Promoting means hyping, so if you think you're promoting by just posting links to your blogs every now and then, you're not really promoting. If you're adding videos and not posting them on FB, Twitter, etc., you're not promoting. Get the drift?
I get it, people are busy running their own companies and don't always have the time to take their profiles from 96% complete to the full 100 - I'm running my own SMM company and can still be too overwhelmed for social media best practices! Adding social site/sharing icons to your blog posts and even email signatures can be a big help. Remember, all your social outlets are connected, so that counts blogs, YouTube channels, email campaigns, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and on and on forever!
