A lot of people fall into the dream world of thinking that social media is going to cure all of there problems of not knowing enough people. What I've found out from using social media for a couple years aggressively are these five truths..
- Having a lot of followers doesn't mean your going to get a lot of results.
- What I mean by this is you can have as many followers and friends online if you want to but if you can not get them to engage with you then your waisting your time and energy in the wrong places. Get them to engage by engaging with them consistently!
2. Spreading your personal information is not the best ideal unless your famous.
- I'm pretty sure you've heard the old rule don't mix pleasure with business well thats the same for personal information. I can recall numerous situations where people have called me asking about how someone else was doing because of something stupid they said online. Keep people out of your business because it just looks sloppy online.
3. Different Social Sites are for different uses.
- This is a BIG ONE! Twitter and FaceBook are two very different platforms. Me personally.. I don't care what you say on twitter because that is what it is used for but if you get out of hand on Facebook I'll most likely delete you. Plus jobs look at your FaceBook and you don't really want them knowing you have a fetish for a woman with big breast! Keep it professional.
4. You do not have to pay to play.
- As long as you engage with the small circle that you have you can keep a consistent client base, remember if you get them to engage on the regular, then they will probably buy what your selling. Don't give up because you don't have 100k followers.
5. If you do have the money then invest wisely.
- I have seen wonderful results from paid advertising, you just have to be very smart and particular if you are on a budget because advertising is a sport for the big boys and you will be outbid sometimes. Not too much, not too little.
These are all from personal experience so if you have had different results then let me know by a tweet @TheMiguelHenry
Note that I will still be using the distribution service of Distokid because they give me exactly what I want as soon as i'm ready to purchase.
If you know me you know i'm always looking for new ways to make money online. I've found and used many ways that are working for me like, Adsense, youtube, soundclick, MCA, and here is another way that I found that is even better than those in some ways(depends who you are) "Bring The Fresh"
It's a program called "Bring The Fresh"
i'm terrible at explaining things so i'll let them do all of the talking. - Miguel Henry
