Mistakes When Promoting Your Business On Social Media

 

Are you making these mistakes when promoting your business on social media?

  • No Banner–do you have a banner for your page? That is the part that is next to your profile picture? Or if you do have a banner, does it have stuff about religion or politics. If it does you are turning people off. That goes for the posts that you share to your followers–they also need to be free of religion or politics. Why? Because you will be turning some people off. That might consist of people that would have been open to your opportunity or product but because of your beliefs you might have turned these people off.
  • Not having your about section filled out. Here, you need to tell people what your business is about–not necessarily your product but what problem does your product solve. Also here you need to list where someone can contact you. Your email, maybe phone numbers, etc. People need to know how to contact you and what you are about.
  • Spamming links and pictures of your product all over social media–guys this does not work. Why do I know this? Well think about it. When do people buy their cars? Usually they go shopping on Sunday when the pushy car salesman is not there. They find the car they want and go back and see about buying it on another day.
Another way to look at this is if I went up to a good looking guy in the mall, planted a kiss on his lips, and said will you marry me–I might not get many results. You need to build a relationship first.  Everything about your business needs to “Raise curiosity and Lower resistance.” When someone comes up to you and says “buy my stuff” it RAISES RESISTANCE and LOWERS curiousity.
Another mistake people are making is tagging people that aren’t in the pictures. Don’t do this–it’s irritating.
Another thing NOT TO DO is putting posts of “Join my team at_____. Again this does not work. You need to get people to know, like, and trust you. In other words build a relationship with them.
