Social Media: Allow Time For Your Presence To Perform
Watching the ‘Seen By’ counter on your Facebook posts can be a gut-wrenching experience. The pendulum can swing so quickly and so violently it can let the wind out of your sails in an instance. But, as we have learned at MarkUBiz, that’s part of the game.
How To Play The Social Media Game
Not every post is going to get the number of hits you want it to, even when it is one you have been mentally crafting for weeks! If your audience doesn’t respond to a great picture or nicely developed post don’t simply throw that idea away. So much more goes into a well received post than the text you write or the image you place alongside your message.
Factors To Consider On Social Media
In social media, as in life, timing is everything. There is so much happening online that your audience is already overwhelmed. Consider the day of the week and the time of day when posting your ‘prized post.’ Are people browsing at work/school at that moment? Are they heading home to shut off their brain? Know your audience and how they will be using their social accounts at the time of your post.
Social Media Takes Time To Touch Thousands
The day you post the most random eCard that depicts your profession in a hilarious situation will likely outperform your post about a report the government released concerning your product. Of course, that’s frustrating. However, consider your followers—or anyone who saw that funny post—who will remember you have a random side to your social account. It may come in handy for a future “Like” or “Follow” and possibly some interaction. Those small victories add up over time, so don’t keep that funny side of you hidden!
