Marketing via social media is actually really great for boosting your business. It helps to spread your message to the masses much more quickly than many other avenues of marketing. However, that very same social marketing can cause quite a lot of damage to your business if you aren’t very careful on it and cautious with the people who are connected to you on the various social media platforms.
Here are just 5 examples that will show you how much you need to be careful with when you are marketing with social media:
- Remember that nothing really dies on social media. Once it’s up, it’s pretty much going to stay there, even if you delete it. That’s why you need to be careful. Also, some of your followers won’t let stuff go either – they can really run with a topic, conversation or situation.
- It can move faster than the speed of light. Things can get spread so much more quickly on social media – good and bad. The minute something happens, the whole world knows about it.
- Your management of the sites can become pretty torturous. Keeping track of multiple sites sounds a lot easier than it actually is. That’s the reason many marketers start of doing well with a site and then, when the pressure builds up, you can barely see them posting anything, because of all the time and energy it takes up to do that.
- Some audience members tend to spread the gloom on social media. Instead of focusing on the positive things about your business, some people make it their life’s work to destroy your brand image on social media by complaining and exaggerating about all the ills and errors that have occurred in relation to your business.
- Then, there are the fake accounts that people tend to love making. Sometimes, troublemakers on social media find pleasure in destroying the fine reputation of your brand because they choose to make a fake profile or account that looks just like yours, but definitely doesn’t function like yours. They make illegitimate post, give bad information and damage the reputation of your brand and company.
