Don't Make These Mistakes With Your Social Media Marketing

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 4.17 (3 Votes)

It's very easy to get involved in social media marketing. After all, using the sites is free, and most people are familiar with the sites because they use them personally. In fact, social media marketing is a great way to communicate with customers, because most people belong to at least one social media site. 

 However, because the sites are so easy to use, it can be really easy to make grave mistakes that damage your brand and your reputation. That's why this article was written. Here are some mistakes you have to avoid when you use social media to do your marketing.

The first mistake a lot of people make is to forget to be professional. Sure, you might use Facebook for your own personal reasons. However, you have to remember that when you are using Facebook on behalf of your business, you really need to keep in mind that you are a business owner. That means you don't post off-color jokes or pictures of your children unless you know for a fact that your target market would be enriched by what you are posting. If you don't know what your target market would enjoy, you need to do a bit more work with defining your target market.

Don't make the mistake of ignoring people. Social media is fundamentally social. That's why it's a good idea to make sure that when people follow you, you follow them back. When they comment on something you've written, comment back. Engaging with people can create loyalty, since a lot of businesses make this mistake.

Avoid never posting new information. In the world of social media, things move fast. That means your post from three weeks ago was forgotten about...three weeks ago. If you want to stay fresh in people's minds, you need to make sure you're posting regularly. You don't want to overdo it, but you do have to actually do it!

Make sure you don't make the mistake of posting boring things that have been seen before. Part of the reason that social media works so well is that your followers can share your information with their networks, which gives you a whole new audience. However, that can't  happen if you never post anything worth sharing. Check out news sites and blogs in your industry to make sure you catch all the things that are going on, that your customers would want to know about.

Avoid ignoring the competition. You have to always know what your competition is doing; not so you copy them, but so you know how you can zig when they zag. This is a great way to see what works and doesn't work for someone who is in a similar situation to you.

After reading this article, you should be better prepared to avoid these social media marketing mistakes. If you stay away from those mistakes, you are going to still be able to build relationships and communicated effectively with the people you want to reach. Remember the information here, and you'll be able to do it well.

Why Do I Feel Like Somebody’s Watching Me?

Spyware is one of the fastest-growing internet threats. According to the National Cyber Security Alliance, spyware infects more than 90% of all PCs today. These unobtrusive, malicious programs are designed to silently bypass firewalls and anti-virus software without the user’s knowledge. Once embedded in a computer, it can wreak havoc on the system’s performance while gathering your personal information. Fortunately, unlike viruses and worms, spyware programs do not usually self-replicate.

Making Money with Articles: The Importance of Keywords

Keyword density and placement are important parts of optimizing your articles for search engines. Search engine spiders scan a page in a way that makes it important to place your keywords where they will be detected and recognized as a keyword, so that your article will come up when someone searches for that keyword.
 
What is a Keyword?
 
A keyword is a word that is going to be placed in your article several times, not just once as that would make every word a keyword. When a spider sees that you have a word placed several times in an article, it will determine that your page may be useful to users that search for such a keyword.

Home schooling and college

As children grow out of their little pants and are ready to begin
their teens, many parents wonder if they should continue with the  
homeschooling program. They fear that colleges may not give equal  
opportunities to a child educated at home.  
 
Many fears of this kind were put to rest when 2 homeschooled boys  
got admission into Harvard. Harvard does not require a high school  
diploma for gaining admission to their degree program.
