3 Tips To Boost Your Social Media

So now you have a Facebook Fanpage with a sizable fan base and an enviable Twitter following, but do you ever run out of creative ideas? Ever wonder what should your next post or tweet should be about? Has your social media been idle lately and needs a jump-start? Here are a few tips to get you rolling again.

1. Keep it fun! It is a social event.

Most business often take social media too seriously, treating like a do-or-die situation. Yet social media fans interact mostly on a personal and casual level and they do so because they want relaxing and entertaining friendships. You can easily keep in line with this theme by engaging your followers in games, contests, trivia, rewarding your most regular customers and other fun activities that keep your fans engaged and happy.

2. Be consistent and post regularly.

This involves regularly posting status updates, blog posts and tweets to promote interaction. Social marketing is a long term strategy that requires a daily commitment. If you find it hard to keep up the constant interaction on a day to day basis, then you can set up an automated post schedule or just outsource it to someone to do it for you. However you must not overuse these methods because they lack a ‘personal touch’, which can easily be detected by your followers who may call you out and this could seriously dent your brand image.

3. Interact and involve your fans and followers

Social media is a two-way street so involving your followers as much as possible is a great strategy to keep them active and engaged. You can encourage this by posting questions, asking them to submit videos and photos, getting them to post content based on their personal lives such as asking them to write about their favorite or worst moments. This increased feedback will help you understand your customers better and get new ideas for your marketing strategy.

Paul Harvey – If I Were The Devil

This is from 1965… Makes you think. (Warning for a Nation)

 

By Paul Harvey

I would gain control of the most powerful nation in the world;

I would delude their minds into thinking that they had come from man’s
effort, instead of God’s blessings;

I would promote an attitude of loving things and using people, instead of
the other way around;

I would dupe entire states into relying on gambling for their state revenue;

I would convince people that character is not an issue when it comes to
leadership;

I would make it legal to take the life of unborn babies;

I would make it socially acceptable to take one’s own life, and invent
machines to make it convenient;

I would cheapen human life as much as possible so that life of animals are
valued more than human beings;

I would take God out of the schools, where even the mention of His name was
grounds for a lawsuit;

I would come up with drugs that sedate the mind and target the young, and I
would get sports heroes to advertise them;

I would get control of the media, so that every night I could pollute the
minds of every family member for my agenda;

I would attack then family, the backbone of any nation. I would make
divorce acceptable and easy, even fashionable. If the family crumbles, so
does the nation;

I would compel people to express their most depraved fantasies on canvas and
movies screens, and I would call it art;

I would convince the world that people are born homosexuals, and that their
lifestyles should be accepted and marveled;

I would convince the people that right and wrong are determined by a few who
call themselves authorities and refer to their agendas as politically
correct;

I would persuade people that the church is irrelevant and out of date, the
Bible is for the naive:

I would dull the minds of Christians, and make them believe that prayer is
not important, and that faithfulness and obedience are optional;

I guess I would leave things pretty much the way they are!
