Five Things NOT To Do When Marketing Your Online Business:
- Don’t friend request a ton of people on Facebook that you do not know or try to add the friends that a mutual friend has. It’s annoying to people and you’ll also get flagged for spam.
- Don’t join every group and fan page that you can find, and don’t start friend requesting everyone inside of those groups or fan pages.
- Don’t invite the same people over and over again to “like” your fan page and don’t send a million messages asking friends to help you get more fans! One request is enough. If several months go by and a friend hasn’t “liked” your page, consider sending them one—just one– reminder message.
- Don’t sign up for “automatic followers.” This will just get you a ton of questionable and adult-type followers and lots and lots of spam!
- Don’t post on your blog once every month or two and expect a loyal following. Don’t fill up your blog with lots of buttons and ads. This will make your blog look cluttered and unappealing.
All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. – Proverbs 14:23
Until next time…
