Your ego should never be bigger than your social interaction #SocialMedia #SmallBusiness-Virtually Everything By Kavalon

People feel when you connect with them on Social Media – that you are there just to hear all about them in a sense you are – but you are also hoping for interaction – its only human and we are human.

Then these same people, who only talk about themselves on social media, start to wonder why they do not have any engagement, sales, new clients, interest. . .

They are not making themselves available to interact – they are just broadcasting. Everyone has the feeling of wanting to be heard. Why are you not hearing, interacting, with the people who have followed you? Why have you not taken the time to acknowledge them? It is not difficult to watch your social media streams and jump into conversation.

I also hear people say that they do not want to use this site or that site to help them with exposure because ‘those people’ are not interested in what I am saying.

WHAT! They are not interested in you, have you ever thought about being interested in them?

Stop worrying about who is listening to you and start listening to others!

People are so worried about who they follow – and who is going to spread their message – and who is listening to them that they do not spread others messages – or retweet , like, share, others – no engagement – narcissism is only about them.

Have you ever noticed after you connected with someone on social media?

They treat you any kind of way – they push all kinds of things in your face- fowl language or even a bully.

They do a lot to get the connection but when it comes to engagement they are striking out.

To the narcissists we know it’s all about you – so much so that most do not follow back –

If you need that much attention and reaffirmed– I am sure that your mother and family can help you to feel loved. But with social media this is a business (If you are bringing your business and or brand online).

You would think if you came onto social media to increase your revenue that you would do everything you could.

Imagine if some of these celebrities followed back most of their followers- and interacted with them – not just posted updates about themselves – what if they treated their followers like humans. They say they love their 30 million fans but only follow 2,000 of them, these fans are the people who purchased their talent, buy everything doll, book, movie with them in it, but they will not interact with them on social media. The same people who helped to make you will also turn their back on you. They say things such as “I do not want to follow to many people and clutter up my stream” Create lists! It is just foreign to me to be in that type of situation and not follow back as many people as I could daily. I would eternally be amazed that they purchased my music etc, came to my shows, now has liked or followed me on social media. Your ego should never be bigger than your social interaction!

This is social media – if you are just talking, talking about yourself that is not social – –

You could stand in a mirror and accomplish that.


Yes – Sharing articles about our niche is great – but do our potential customers even understand the wealth of information that we are sharing?

Broadcasting to people who do not understand social media and why they need it for their brand and or business.

Since we have these newbie’s on social media, people who have been scammed by ‘Social Media Lords’ –Social Media Marketing is becoming spam and a scam! If a person does not understand something, they feel as if it is a scam. Social media marketing has become like a restaurant – I do not like this one let’s try this one – which is great but the market is flooded with gurus who are leading them nowhere.

It’s time we stop using social media jargon all the time, we also need to speak to the new social media users. We need to get them to understand that there are good and bad apples out there and we also need to show them why social media is critical for their business!

When you do get that client they may be a bit stubborn and narcissistic. This is the texting age- they do not understand engagement – it seems as if everyone is accustomed to instant gratification – text get a reply back. Hit play whatever plays. When I do ‘’ “ this happens now! Some people do not understand the facets and the work that goes into your business/brand. But we with them connecting with the correct social media consultant it will help them to grow and engage.

I just want to the people who are serious about social media to understand that it is so much more going on than you. This seems what so many are missing.


Automatically Sharing from #Facebook To #Twitter #Tip #SmallBusiness #SmallBiz #TMW- Virtually Everything By Kavalon

#Tip #Facebook #Smallbiz #SmallBusiness Is your… – Virtually Everything By Kavalon.

‪#‎Tip‬ ‪#‎Facebook‬ ‪#‎Smallbiz‬ ‪#‎SmallBusiness‬
Is your facebook connected to your twitter?
Everytime you post statuses on facebook do they automatically go to twitter?
If so please make sure you write something descriptive in the status box on facebook – do not leave it blank. If you leave it blank it shows on twitter as just a link – no one know what type of valuable information you have shared.

Please write a blurb – by doing this – it gets people interested in your facebook (growing your friends and likes), wanting to hear your message – and this will grow your engagement.
By sharing from facebook to twitter – you are sharing little teasers that spark interest!

Twitter is for networking and facebook is for sharing and discussing!

Write in a small descriptive blurb-that way when you share on twitter -everyone will know what you are sharing

If you do not enter a blurb - you will just have a link - no one can find you or know what type of great info you shared!


Will we be able to search content by Klout Scores? Virtually Everything By Kavalon


Timeline Photos – Virtually Everything By Kavalon.

Have you discovered your Klout score?

People are taking their klout scores more seriously. It measures your social influence!

I believe we are coming closer to days where you will be able to search sites by using Klout scores (Such as only seeing users who klout scores range between 65-75 – or between 80-83)
– Why? It is believed that people with higher klout scores are more trusting and have more influence – they are aware of their brand – and they are not just going to put just anything out on Social Media.
People work hard on their klout scores and they work hard to grow them.
How do you grow your klout score?
Engagement – you want to engage people with what you are sharing!

If you are sharing (Me Me Me Me) content – most likely you will not be engaging anyone.
To engage:
Ask questions
Provide tips
Help others
Share others information

As we say it is consistency – every single day!

When we help build others- we are also building ourself!

Currently my Klout score is 67 – it was a 71 – why did my score drop?
I have not been utilizing instagram and I had a lot of engagement – and I have not been using Google + as much.

What is your score – post it them in the comments – how do you think you can raise your klout score?


Social Media Window Shopping

Bringing your business into the virtual world – having a business page – ‘fan page’ ‘likepage’ – this is equal to a potential customer window shopping. You want to do everything you can on the outside to bring them in the inside. But once inside your establishment do you keep that energy flowing? 
When a potential customer/client ‘likes’ your page and or post – this is the time to start a conversation. If this potential person comes back day after day without any interaction – you will lose them – the same goes for if they are in your establishment and you ignore them. Not interacting with your clients once they have liked your page is like them being in your store and you talking over them – they are INVISIBLE – which means you may be invisible one day – Interact with the people who are liking your pages, post, sharing your content- they are giving you free traffic and they are supporting you. Plus they are potential customers. You have to understand that when you have an online business, you have to interact -why are they going to be your customer. I like to look at the situation from my mother’s point of view- she rarely buys online – she wants to go to the store she wants something tangible! This is why it is great to start local – then bring your business online – letting your local customers know that now they can visit you online – 
But why would they visit you online if you are local – 1) Save time 2) Discounts 3) Take more time to make a informed buying decisions and many other reasons. They love having the choice!
Then having that website is great to reach customers that are not local – this is how you get leads from social media – twitter, facebook, pinterest and etcImage
