Recently a lot of people have complained about the algorithms burning up their walls on Facebook and other Social Media platforms, but the reality is that they create those algorithms. Algorithms are determined by how you use facebook. If you want to change them, change how you use it.
Use it more often. Use it less often. Change your topics.
I’m sure if some read this, they’ll use my comment space to blast me for calling them out, but I’m calling them out. Social Media Marketing is a fairly simple, straight forward program that works, when we do what needs to be done.
Social Media Marketing Tips
Instead of whining about the algorithms preventing you from posting your links on social media forums, or changing the way you post so your posts cannot be shared, find ways to promote your links on social media by interactive sharing of links between your friends. Take a moment to read through these tips and then DO what I recommend here:
1 – When you see a link on someone else’s wall, like it, comment on it, and share it to one of your community PAGES. Most of us have a few pages where we can share content, links, and marketing concepts. So use them to share those links.
2 – Repeat #1 FREQUENTLY.
3 – Whenever you share a link on your page, go invite a few of your friends to come comment and like the page, discretely, gently, and with some class. Make your link fun to share.
4 – Make your link shares PUBLIC. There’s NO benefit to telling your friends what you do in a way that doesn’t allow them to share your links with others. If they can’t share them, you’re gaining no audience from the links. Your FRIENDS already know what you do. Make those links PUBLIC.
5 – If you want your friends to SHARE your links and posts, Share theirs. It’s only fair…
Follow the golden rule of social media here, do unto others as you would like them to do unto you.
