Social Media Followers Hint…

Simple; quality ALWAYS beats quantity! It’s interesting, the lengths people go to frantically trying to boost the number of followers they have on social media.It's not about the length of your social media follower list; it's about the quality of followers

Whoa! Slow down! It isn’t about the number of social media followers you have. It’s about building a loyal following of people that share your interests. Social media is about engaging with real people. Particularly true if you’re hoping to communicate and grow your local customer base.

Content is key! Always has been, always will be. Provide info of value, of interest to your niche, post consistently and your quality list of followers will grow naturally.

Nurture relationships with social media followers and those you are following.

Tantalizing Twitter Tips

Tweet Twitter Tips…

Alas some sweet sweet brevity within the whirlwind world of Social Media.

3 effective Twittering tips that are real quick to implement:

  • Put your Twitter bio to good use: people check out your Twitter bio before following you. So make it good. Make it fun. Make it real. Choose words wisely, use the max available. Include your picture.
  •  Include an image in your tweet. Of course you want your tweet shared, but first you have to get people to read it. In a recent split test conducted by @Buffer, tweets with pictures received 18% more clicks, 89% more favourites & 150% more retweets.
  •  Engage with others on Twitter. Don’t just build it and wait for followers to come. Find, follow, like, retweet and instigate interesting Twitter conversations.

Boom Social Social Selling Made Simple

Social Media Struggle

Scuffling with Social Media

We have a saying in our house when someone gets distracted…”ooooo shiny!” Well, let me tell you when it comes to social media there’s an absolute abundance of distractions.

One social media challenge I had was tussling with insistent interruptions by notifications. I’d be twittering away when “pop” would go a Facebook notification or an Instagram like would flitter across the page. Intrigued I’d find myself off in another direction, a Tweet left unfinished and trail of thought lost indefinitely.

An important part of my business is the ability to manage multiple social media accounts. I have to stay on task, and stay on topic. It’s not as easy as you may think.

Notifications off, one disruption down…that one was easy. Please share your #SocialMedia pet peeve(s) and solutions with us in the comments.

If it Qwacks Wike a Duck

Wacky Words Wednesday

What can I say? I enjoy coming up with lists of ATTENTION grabbing words. Which happens to be a good thing when you’re into Social Media.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again and probably again a few times after that. Words do matter! They should jump out at you.

Here is today’s list of whacky attention grabbers.

  • Crazy
  • Madcap
  • Wild
  • Mad
  • Weird
  • Silly
  • Zany

Notice the theme? Yup, suggestions from a thesaurus for the word wacky/whacky. Let’s see what else can I share in 49 words or less? I know, here’s a terrific #Twitter tip from @KimGarst.Make your Tweets stand out – be funny, poignant, or otherwise unique”.

The way I figure it is, if I’m myself when I tweet then I know I’m being “otherwise unique”.

Take care…thank you for stopping by.

Bloody Rude If You Ask Me

Why You Gotta be So Rude?!?!

I do my best to let it be. I try not to be offended but, I’m only human.

I don’t follow, like retweet, repost, share or otherwise “socialize” to get a response. I do it because I find the information, the person or both interesting.

It’s downright rude when there’s no reply, no acknowledgement; absolutely nothing but written silence. I know feeling snubbed isn’t necessarily rational but I do.

If you’re partaking in “Social” Media, then practice “Social” etiquette. Say please, say thank you and without exception ALWAYS answer legitimate questions, especially if you are a business.

Rule of thumb; if you would say thank you in a real world social setting then thanks is appropriate in the Social Media world too.

Thank you for visiting. Please drop by again soon.

Take care,

Words Words Everywhere Words

Stuck for words?

Social Media may be all the rage over video right now. Tweets with pictures are wayyy more engaging than those without. Opened and read newsletter e-mails can deliver powerful results BUT bottom line is the “words” you choose to use.

They get the click or they don’t.

Words have to SCREAM read me. Words are the central driving force behind getting the response you want to your calls to action.

Great Social Media Words Can be Found in Comic BooksTweeting has taught me how to make my point using carefully chosen attention grabbing words. A combination of powerful words that gets people to read and react. Fun words that encourage engagement.

Where was I? Right! Yup I do get stuck for words. Good news! Social Media word ideas are all around us. Click here for a list of 25 social media word ideas from a comic book…

 

 

 

Facebook Live

How About Facebook Live eh?

Facebook Live Help
Going Live with Facebook

Better get used to it. Rumour has it, LIVE video is going nowhere but up, up, up in the 2016 Social Media Circles.

What is Facebook Live? Just what it sounds like, you are now able to broadcast live video to your followers. I’m talking 1, 2, 3 and you’re live…

  1. Tap what’s on your mind (top of news feed)
  2. Choose Live Video from the drop down menu
  3. Choose your audience, add a description, click Go Live & a 3 second countdown begins

I attended a blab about Facebook Live. I’ve watched some Facebook Live events but I haven’t broadcast YET. Yikes! There’s just something about going live in 3 seconds that freaks me out a little.

In order to broadcast LIVE you’ll need a strong connection. No internet; no Facebook Live.

Social Media a Bit of Downtime

Forget 140 Characters! I need 140 words 😉

Social Media is all about the video this month
LetsGetSocial.ca Girls Having a Little Social Time

BUZZ! BUZZ! My mind is a buzz with so many social media buzz words. Maybe it’s time for a little breather? Hmmm I wonder. Does blogging my little social media rant count? It’s a slippery slope.

I’ve decided that I’m allowing myself 140 words then no more #SocialMedia speak. How best to summarize? Must think carefully. I’ve already reached the halfway mark.

So, what’s been happening on the social media front this month? EVERYTHING!!! If I had to narrow it down to the top three buzz words being bantered around on social media I would have to say video, video and more video.

Eeeek only 27 words left to. April’s been a busy month in social media. Many exciting changes but at the same time WOW the energy it takes keeping up.
