The 80/20 Rule in Social Media

When using social media and creating a  brand  the rules are completely different than they were in the old days. With traditional marketing, the most common practice was promoting and selling your product and being very aggressive about it. If you do this on social media, people will  stop following you.

In fact, 56% of people do just that to businesses or people that are boring or use only sales related posts.

I was given some really good advice from a social marketing guru he told me to think about it as networking and creating relationships. When you build relationships, you will see your business grow exponentially.

The 80/20 Rule:

Statistic’s say the most important rule to follow for success is 80% informational and 20% sales.

The 80% needs to be informative, helpful, or inspiring. Don't be afraid to use other people’s posts and links, in fact, you can thank them in the comment section using the @name.

For more tips and trick be sure to come back often.

To success beyond measure and friendships that last a lifetime…
