I was a guest at BEN South Jersey today where Tammy Collins was the impressive speaker with an excellent list of social media tips:
1 Understand the platform you are using and what the platform user wants there.
2 Don’t post and ghost. Stoke the algorithms by interacting with other users to keep more engagement n the platform which makes the platform reward you with more exposure.
3 What is in it for me? Focus on sharing what value you add to THEIR life. Don’t broadcast to everyone with what you want to talk about. Target a niche market with targeted efforts and lead with what your target market wants to see.
4 Social media is not your personal billboard. It is not attractive to anyone, much less your target market.
5 “Give to Get” Demonstrate your expertise to your prospects, your referral partners, your network and to the public at large. Attract the right clients/buyers to you and your business with creative story telling content how you started show what you do helps your prospect’s problems.
6 Be authentic and vulnerable. Stay on message with your branding and be a real person not a façade behind a logo.
7 Is about time and consistency. Yes, you could block off a small amount of time every day.
8 Take them to Pleasure Island. Ow you are positioned in your prospect’s eye.
