Social Influence Marketing Techniques and Tips

Social networking is a great way to kill a hell of a lot of time. It is the Internet equivalent of eating cheesy Wotsits. It is addictive, and if you touch anything else whilst doing it,, then you will get orange gunk all over it.

Existing on a social network is not enough. You must constantly work to maintain your image, contacts, creditability and trust. You are living the life of a highflying solicitor mixed with a supermodel. Gain a little weight and people will spit on you in the street.

There are many social media platforms, so you need to pick the one that will grab the attention of your potential customers. Just grabbing attention will get you as far as a sixteen-year-old boy showing his nipples to his schoolteacher in assembly. This is not a celebrity status you are maintaining, hence, all attention is not good attention.

Create clear goals so that you restrict your potentially wasted time. Like deciding to go for a swim to lose a little weight but then, turning it into a “how long can I hold my breath” contest with an 8year old who you are sure was cheating in some way!

Do not try to sell direct, because it is a fruitless endeavor. Like a Parkinson’s patient trying to eat peas off the back of fork to impress his mother in law.

Carry out research into the biggest users of each social media.
