I am seeing more social media accounts – that are not providing any engagement.
They are doing heavy self-promotion. Nothing is wrong with self-promotion – but you can not expect anyone to become a new client. We are in the virtual world- you have to show & communicate to others, build trust, and network (promote and help others).
Just give it a try – cut down your self-promotion by half – then engage your audience – share posts that are in relation to your niche – join chats – answer questions about your niche – ask questions – – Do this for 1 Month – and you will start to notice changes.
Do not run your potential customers away with self-promotion – potential customers may feel as if you are selfish and only concerned with making a sale, they want to know they you will provide superior customer service as well.
Provide and great service/product/ etc- can speak for itself – but your customers are your word of mouth – virtually, locally, globally.
Please utilize social media in a better way – when you start to do this great things will happen – remember the reasons that brought you to social media – there are no shortcuts – it is consistency everyday. Get creative – standout – grow your brand & have fun!
