10 Business Social Media Tips In 2 Minutes

Posted by on Oct 3, 2014

I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard of a meme, but that’s where someone starts a theme of some sort and other people adopt it and do the same thing for a day or two (my buddy Peter says he doesn’t do memes; let’s see if I can goad him into the challenge lol). Well, it seems I’ve created my own meme where I’ve written 10 quick tips that shouldn’t take most people long to read. I’ve got a bunch of them on this blog, including one on writing and one on blogging and a few others here and there, including on my other blogs.


Make A Social Media Splash!

The plan is simple; write a post that gives information that hopefully the reader can digest in 2 minutes. I think this works great and should be something that everyone should be able to do. I sometimes like writing something like this to follow up a relatively long post.

Anyway, giving it another shot here so let’s get going:

1. Create a blog so you can communicate often with the masses, which includes your potential customers.

2. Have at least a LinkedIn account, but it wouldn’t hurt to be on the other social media platforms.

3. Don’t always sell; be engaging here and there, at least 50% of the time.

4. Don’t say social media is worthless if you’ve never given it a try.

5. Be nice, even when you’ve got a gripe you want to get off your chest.

6. Every person is a potential customer or lead; remember that.

7. Nothing says you have to do it all in social media. Find what you feel comfortable and do just that.

8. However, you must be in social media; trust me, your competitors are.

9. If it didn’t work the way you thought it would it’s not anyone’s fault; when has anyone gotten everything right every time?

10. Be yourself; sometimes you only get one chance to impress people.

That’s it; enjoy the challenge!

Seems like a great challenge to try. I can’t accept it though – my blog is in hiatus right now, will be returning to normal in a month 😀

But, I can try something here:

1) Don’t invest all your time into one social media site, instead invest into several (don’t spread yourself too thin either!).

2) Find which sites work best for you (or your competitor). Focus on those sites.

3) Schedule schedule schedule. Best way to manage multiple sites.

4) Try to avoid information overload – pick the right tools, filter out what’s important your business. Tweet deck twitter search column is an example.

5) Use images; they work in almost all sites. Take your own photographs (or buy images online or try royalty free image sharing sites – there are plenty of them!).

6) Converse.

7) Participate – Chats, Hangouts and Events (Great way to meet new folks).

8) Share valuable tips – Don’t just promote your business. Find new ways to do it; provide value while marketing.

9) Experiment. There’s always more than one way to achieve a goal. Try different ways (and perhaps share the experience on your blog!).

10) DESTROY YOUR DISTRACTIONS!

😉

As much as it can be helpful, SM can sometimes be a big distraction. Concentrate on your tactics and effort, instead of on cute pictures of cats.

(I think the best way to do that is take full advantage of lists, circles and groups). Avoid the timelines!

What a great job Jeevan! I love it, and I think if you put something like this on your blog that it would work wonders for you. I’m also betting it didn’t take as long as you thought it would to put it together. Your last point is a major key; we all get distracted and it can be a challenge to get back to what we need to do. I have that issue now with all the traveling, but it’s all about to get easier. 🙂

Hey Mitch, I sure hope your friend takes you up on the challenge. If he does he has a lot more gumption than I do. 😉

Honestly though Mitch, it’s just not something that I would do.

Before you leave a reply; please see the comment policy if this is your first visit. This blog doesn't accept keyword names. I need a real first name or a legitimate nickname that you're known for. If your name has more than 3 words or the email address begins with "info" or "admin", the comment automatically goes to the spam filter; same if there are any links in the comment or if you don't have a gravatar. If your comment goes to spam for any of these reasons, or any other reason listed in this post, it may never show up on the blog (I do forgive the link issue if you've commented on the blog previously and I'll forgive the gravatar thing for first time visitors). If it goes there for any other reason (and I know some do), I'll pull it out as I don't intentionally moderate any comments on this blog.

One last thing; if your link is an affiliate link or goes back to a strange website or webpage I don't like, if I keep your comment I'll remove your link. That's why I have CommentLuv for blogs; if you have a legitimate business just leave that link & no sub-links. Trust me, it's best to read the comment policy if you don't get it, or never see your comments showing up here.

If you like this post, why not donate to the cause? :-)
