🎃 Linking Facebook & Twitter!
This is our top Introtweet Social Media don’t! Linking your Facebook & Twitter accounts together is a sure-fire way to alienate your followers, annoy your followers & actually give quite a bad first impression of your brand & business. Linking creates strange links, disappearing sentences & very low engagement levels – please don’t do it! If you need any help unlinking your accounts – just ask or check out our blog!
👻 Automated Twitter Messages!
This has to be another of those Social Media things that can really turn people off! If you ask any seasoned Twitter user their biggest hate – this will most definitely be right up there.
Automated messages are impersonal, spammy & robotic – the exact opposite of what Social Media is about. They also are frankly a real pain – they suck the life out of your inbox & sometimes mean you can miss the 1 in 1000th twitter message that is actually real!
These automated messages also never come across as I assume the business setting them up had hoped – the software picks something out of your username to call you, such as we are often addressed as ‘Hi Team!’ & strange links appear after the message such as ‘powered by @crowdfire’ therefore giving the game away about your automation…!
If you do want to send Direct Messages (DM’s) on Twitter – do it the personal way!
🎃 Constant Broadcasting!
Purely broadcasting about your business is a big Social Media NO! If you only broadcast about your business & constantly promote, promote, promote Social Media will not be working for you.
This kind of content is allowed on Social Media – you can promote your business & don’t let anyone tell you otherwise – but this has to be surrounded by other content! Share exciting business news, engage with other businesses & influencers, share local news & events & above all – showcase your personality! Social Media after all is Social Media.
Don’t terrify your followers by doing any of the above this Halloween…!
