You guys love infographics! And we love making them for you! So this week we present to you, “10 Creative Secrets For Social Media Marketing” – as an Infographic, so we hope you enjoy this one as much as you did with our previous infographic.
Everyone has a different opinion, and there are no real rules when it comes to social media best practices.
After reading this infographic, I found the following to be the most important points:
- There are no shortcuts, be patient (it takes time and patience to get going on social media)
- Contribute something of value – or don’t contribute at all
- Have clear goals of what you want to achieve on social media
- Provide quality posts not just a massive quantity
- Don’t just promote yourself (use the 70/30 rule – max 30% your stuff)
- Connect with people and respond to connections (don’t ignore, always thank, be polite etc)
- Adapt to the ever changing social media landscape (keep up to date)
- I know many of you social media bunnies out there will be well aware of all these things, but it is worth highlighting them all again.
Social media seems like an easy thing when you start out, but there are so many hidden rules, it makes it hard for the newcomer to make a go of it.
