Why you suck online and socially?
First of all, my podcast schedule is off and I really hope to get back on track this week. In fact, spitballing a little her, I may actually do a podcast while I drive home from Indy Friday night.
But, this week I was hit with some ideas after seeing some blunders in others online and social media strategy. I am not saying I am perfect any or all of the above, but I am doing pretty darn well. I am either making changes or willing to make changes.
Yeah, I never heard of you and neither has Google
You don’t have a blog. You don’t know how to blog and you do not have your site set up to be found. I know blogging and being on social media is not easy, setting your blog is not easy, it will cost money and it takes time. Staying up to day on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Google + is not a set it and forget it, and if anyone ever tries to tell you that they do not know what the hell they are talking about.
Hey he was funny on the Gong Show, but I am sure you own a digital camera or someone you know owns one, take pic and put one up on your profile. What I have done is create folder on desktop that has all my social media platform pics, my “about” and other pertinent items in an easy to grab, no excuse for me not to fill out a profile format.
You are on all of the major social platforms, but you are not branding yourself there. You do no t engage with others either in your field or anyone that would benefit from your expertise. Do not be afraid to engage, they are not going to bite you.
Create lists – I do my best to add every new follower or friend in a list on Twitter and Facebook. It makes them easy to track and engage down the road.
- cookie cutter website (hello real estate and mortgage people)
- never an update on your blog or socially
- nothing is every “FREE”
- you buy content and you do not rewrite and make it SEO friendly
Ads and Social
You do a PPC campaign and or facebook ad and you send people back to your main part of your site – Think Landing Page
Break the Rules of Engagement
- don’t follow back or acknowledge anyone
- don’t engage
- little to no follow-up of any bloody kind
- you never return a call or an email in a timely fashion at all
