GUESS WHAT: One million followers does not equal one million dollars –
First of all – yes, there are ways to growth hack your accounts and get your platform numbers up. Just last night I did an Instagram video explaining exactly what you need to do to get your IG into the thousands, and if you want to do that I really suggest you check it out.
THAT SAID. I cannot emphasize enough how 1 mill followers does not equal 1 million dollars and simply having big numbers does not mean you have been successful at social media marketing!!!!
Instead. Here is where you should focus your energy if you have a service that you are trying to sell/grow.
Meaningful interactions pay off BIG in the end. Don’t stray away from having substance and offering value – aspire to connect on personal and professional levels with people who encounter online.
Mindfulness Online – OMG this changes everything instead of just click, click, click, follow, follow, follow, trying “reading” and “responding” to other people’s posts with slow and thoughtful comments.
Yes, it takes time –
But if you do this with people every day – and with new people often – that’s how you actually build an audience.
…. if your posts sound like it could have been posted by a generic bot, you are doing this wrong.
Quality over quantity: YOU DO NOT need to be everybody’s everything.
Instead. Aspire to be somebody’s something.
Focus on building platforms and profiles populated with people who share your interests and be niche-focused.
Personality!!!!!! – Last thing,
Personality. Get some.
Nobody connects with businesses online. People connect with people. Be personable and human – focus on finding your true voice.
Everything they ever told you about “prufushionalism” in networking – forget it. Social media is primarily about entertainment and fun with learning speckled in.
Hope this helps!
Say yes, if it does!
BTW comments assure that everyone sees the post.
AND YOU MAY ask questions if you need help with any of these concepts.
