I selected this article from Curatti written by Ian Naylor because it explains how to develop a strong social media strategy that works for your business.


It's important to build solid objectives in order to be successful in social media marketing.


Common Social Media Mistakes


While you can create a social media account and begin tweeting or posting this will not guarantee solid growth. I agree that it takes focus and dedication to get real results.


Naylor explains what to avoid and how to properly grow your social brand.


Here's what caught my attention:


  • Avoid spreading yourself too thin on too many networks. Focus on one and then move up from there. It takes time and dedication to develop your community.


  • Include the human touch in your accounts rather than just relying on automation or standard content. When people see the same messages they become bored quickly and move on.


  • It's important to include video as a part of your marketing strategy. People are especially drawn to this medium -- especially live stream broadcasts.

Do you invite comments on your Facebook page? When your followers leave comments on your Facebook page, do you reply? Do you participate in discussions with your fans on your Twitter account? If not, then you are missing out on a tremendous opportunity to build goodwill.

Have you been putting off joining Google + or have you not been active? There are so many reasons to use it!

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, April 10, 2014 7:28 PM

For many business people, Google+ has overtaken Facebook in usage. It is viewed as more professional and to be taken seriously. Facebook has a less than professional aura.
