Know what the main point of social media is? Well, it’s not “media” – so I’m pretty sure you can figure OuT which of the two words matters most!
Social media can be many things, but when you’re using it for marketing purposes, it should be SOCIAL above all. And infographics are one of the best ways on the internet today to get your followers to be, well, I think you get where I’m going 🙂
The Point of Social Networking
What would you say the best thing a social media follower can do directly for you is? “Like” a post? Follow you? Subscribe? Head to your website?
The best thing someone can do for you on social media is share something you’ve posted. A share proves three things:
- One – Someone has genuinely engaged with your post and it was very relevant to him/her
- Two – Someone liked it so much he/she thought someone else would, too
- Three – Someone else will engage with this post who is likely beyond your existing following
It doesn’t get any better than that!
The third point is the biggest one. Getting your current following excited is one thing, but once they start sharing your posts out to other people in their networks who are not yet a part of your network… now that’s what SOCIAL networking is all about!!!
People are much more likely to respond to a post when someone they personally know has specifically shared it with them, and then they’re even more likely to share it AGAIN once they’re in the viral mindset.
