There is no one alive today who can say that social media hasn’t changed our lives. Think about how kids grew up in the 80’s and 90’s versus kids growing up today. Our furbies have been replaced with tablets. And it’s all being captured on social media.
So let’s try to remember these 8 simple things you should avoid on social media.
THING #1: Taking it personally. You are going to get a lot of spam. Just remember it’s a robot and not a real person.
THING #2: Expecting to get 10,000 followers from a $5 post boost
THING #3: Trying to be on every social media platform. Pick one and love it!
THING #4: Making it all about you. It’s a social network. A place to be social and network so go out and start a conversation with all those fabulous peeps out there.
THING #5: Not completing your profile. Make sure you include a link to your website, a little bio, and fabulous picture of your beautiful face!
THING #6: Not scheduling your posts. There is no excuse in today’s world not to be scheduling your important posts ahead of time. Go check out Buffer. It’s free!
THING #7: Not understanding the lingo. Once you pick your channel, learn all the terminology. Know what a pixel is. Study everything you can about.
THING #8: Trying to be someone you’re not. Just be your beautiful self and everyone who is supposed to will love you for it. We promise!
So, which one of these have you been guilty of?
