The Mystery of Social Media Followings Solved or Not?


*Please read further than my comic relief.

We will start off with some comedy.  Here is the quote I came up with today.

“Follow me on blab, twitter, and facebook and I will teach you how to increase your followers/reach”.  This answer is what social media experts understand lol.

and here is the answer: Strangely the answer is a repeat of my quote nearly:

“Ask people to follow you on blab, twitter, and facebook and you will teach them how to increase their followers/reach”

and then you give them the answer I just gave you 🙂

Now please politely follow me on the right hand side and we’ll work to solve all your marketing problems. I don’t currently handle psychological problems.

Authors Note: This was a poke of fun at social media EXPERTS.  I don’t claim to be an expert at social media.  Will I discuss it, yes I will.  It can be very effective for your business.  But, come on social media expert…?  The next big social media sensation is months away.  The experts will be brand new.  How can they be an expert?  The game can change in an instant.

Do I think that someone can be exceptional in what is currently being used, yes I do.  But, expert is never a word I would use to describe them.

Two Simple Rules of Social Media: Have conversations with people, you learned that in 1st grade right?  2nd rule: Provide information that helps people, you did your first report in say 5th grade?  Organizing information and making it useful to others is as easy as 5th grade.  However, when you go to write original, helpful information that is a step up, say 11th grade English class.

Online business is as hard as making the decision about what you will specialize in(your product choice).  Could be simple or hard for you to decide, but it’s a critical decision.

Simple Steps After You Have Made Your Choice Above:
1. Online Tools
a. Adkreator Your Splash Page, Squeeze Page, Landing Page Maker
b. A simple, effective Tracking tool.
c. Rocket Responder Your Email Collector, Email Sender, the Autoresponder

2. Lead Generation, finding your customers
a. Traffic Exchanges and Traffic Coops located on the 125 x 125 banners to the right
b. Blogging Your Heart Out (Use Word Press, this blog is on it)
c. Social Media (Follow the 2 simple rules listed above or be shunned and exiled)
d. Expensive Paid Search Engine Advertising

Want to talk about this stuff so everyone sees it as EASY?  Come find me on Blab, a video chat site, at 6pm eastern Monday-Friday.

    Hi Marcus this is a great post. And you need to be good at talking and having a conversation with people to be good at social media or Blab for instance. Or good at chatting if you are chatting online. What I am not good at is striking up a conversation and feeling comfortable at talking with people. But I feel comfortable with chatting with people. In talking with others, I feel put on the spot especially if I am really tired. Last Thanksgiving Jon got me on cam to talk and I was so exhausted from cooking and not feeling well. I don’t think I hardly said anything. I was trying not to fall asleep and too embarrassed to tell him, I didn’t feel well. I was too tired to talk. That was before my diagnosis of Hepatitis C. So I didn’t know why I was so tired. Oh well. And if I am awake and full of energy, I might not know what to say. I get stage fright. Oh well we all have our talents don’t we. 🙂 I am great at chatting with people or talking to them in a screen share for instance or teaching them how to use Adkreator or clear their cache and delete their cookies in Firefox.

    Hi Marcus this is a great post and I read it over again. I can read things over more than once and learn something I didn’t see the first time I read it. I find you need to read things more than once to fully understand them. It is a good idea to do when we are bombarded with so many shiny objects in the Traffic Exchanges and Mailers.

    There really is no mystery to social media. It requires being persistent, focused, and showing up everyday to your blab and the rest of the above. 🙂
