Big Blunders while choosing any Social Meda

There are several criteria to be checked while choosing any social media for your blogging.

But most of the bloggers commit Big Blunders while choosing social media for their blog promotion, getting followers or exchanging any information.

What are Big Blunders while choosing Social Media

  1. Most bloggers use Social Media which is in trend or in social news
  2. Most bloggers choose social followers who participate most frequently in social activities

Instead of above 2 Big Blunders while choosing social media ask few question to yourself along with the don'ts as mentioned below:-

  • Do not choose Social Media in hurry just to throw your hard written content
  • Do not rely on any particular Social Media to promote your content

And ask yourself mainly 3 question because you are the owner of your content and social media profile:-
  • Does it make sense for my content?
  • Do your fans or followers spend time there?
  • Do your fans or followers are from the same niche you are writing for?
If you have decided about your social media strategy that you want to go ahead with.

Let us assume that you don’t know what method you’d like to use for your strategy about using social media.

And that is just where I come in to figure out which direction you want to take.

So, my best advice for figuring out which strategy you’ll use is to use the method that you resonate with.

And that is, do whatever you like to do.

If you ask me  about my strategy of using social media;

then, I will go with social networks like Google Plus, Facebook and Twitter.

Because, you can actually have real conversations with like minded people.

So, if you are a social person and like to meet people in real time, go with Facebook or Twitter and you will get huge response there.

But, let me discuss something here, this is really important to focus on ONE social media and master it until you’re  generating conversions per day with that one method.

Only then, move on with another method of your choice and repeat the process.

No, I am not saying or stopping you to use more than one social media.
