Social Media Mistakes

People are connected to each other more than ever before on social media platforms, engaging in conversations about your brand and industry. As a result, it’s no surprise that social media campaigns can be a bit overwhelming, but if you stay clear of these common mistakes you’ll be well on your way to effective social media marketing.

Ignoring It All Together

Social networking and blogging are two of the most popular online activities, beating out other online actions like personal email. 67% of global users visit member communities and 10% of all time spent on the internet is on social media networks. On a daily basis, individuals are likely talking about your company and its branding. Taking the time to listen, and conduct thorough social media monitoring is important to any successful social media effort.

Assuming Social Media Is A Cheap And Fast “Miracle Pill”

Entrepreneurs want everything (brand awareness, recall, more word of mouth, more business) and they want it fast. Digital marketing takes patience and timing. You can’t join an online social network and derive any value from it unless you take the time to meet the right people, connect, share, build, grow, and create a cohesive social media strategy.

Assuming That Anyone Who Grew Up With The Internet is Capable of Devising, Executing, and Maintaining a Social Media Campaign

It’s not about technology or if you grew up in the digital age (even though you may have an upper-hand) but about effective strategy. There is no one size fits all, and ultimately it’s not about “What are we doing in XXX social media network?” but about why should you be in that social media network. It’s about settling on YouTube over Facebook, or focusing on a blog instead of Twitter. Any good business should focus on adding value to their consumers where they already ‘reside’ digitally.
