20 Worst Social Media Advises You NEED to Ignore

Although some of the advises given by people are good but there are also some advises that you should ignore to get success.

1) Join Every Social Media Network

You don't need to be on every social media website. It is not necessary. You will have to be present on each of these websites so it is not good especially if you are a busy person. You should first figure out which social media site will work for you. You should choose the site according to your audience. Join the site which your potential costumers have already joined. If you don't know which website to target, join each of them and drop them step by step according to the traffic they are sending to your website/blog.


Multiple Social Media Websites


2) Focus on a Specific Social Media Website

Don't focus on a single website without trying others. Different social media networks work for different websites. So you should try them all and then reach on a conclusion.

3) Email is not Needed

If you have joined a social media site and its working perfectly it doesn't mean that now you email has become useless. Email has its own importance. You should carry on your marketing campaign through email as well. It will benefit you.

4) Social Media has replaced SEO

If someone tell you that social media is an alternative for SEO, its not true. You should work on both social media and SEO. If you will stop putting an effort in SEO, it will stop giving you traffic. Social media in creases the traffic at your site but it doesn't mean that now you don't need the traffic due to SEO.

5) Automation of all the Updates is Fine

If you are on a social media site, you have to interact with people. Social media is for communicating. You can't just automate all of your updates. You can use this feature for somethings but you cannot totally rely on it. Interact with people and involve them in your activities.

6) Send auto Message

You should not send auto messages to anyone on a social media network. It doesn't seen good to the people. The people will have a bad impression of you. So try to avoid it.

7) Include Popular Hash Tags

Using popular hash tags will not give you new audience so it is useless. The hash tags you will use will surely be general and people don't keep an eye on these hash tags.

8) You Costumers are not on Social Media

Some people may give you an advice that your costumers are not on Social Media so you don't need to be there. But it is not true. According to a research 69% of the people use social media. So your costumers are most likely present on Facebook.

9) Publishing more is the Key to Success

Some people will tell you that you have to publish more and more to get people's attention and to get success. It is true but all of this content must be valuable for the readers. If the quality of the content is not good enough people will not like it and thus, it will not go into your advantage.

10) Use Auto-publishing Tool

You should not do auto-publishing in a way that the same message is posted on all of your social networks at the same time. It will have a bad impression on the people. People don't like auto-published messages. You have to write different messages for your different social networks.

11) Someone else can Run your Social Network on your Behalf

You should not ask someone else or hire someone to post and comment on your social network on your behalf. People want to hear the real person not someone who is just delivering the message. People want to know about the challenges faced by you so your hired person can't tell about the challenges faced by you.


Twitter and Facebook


12) Don't give Personal Information

Your fans would love to know about you. You should tell them about your interests and likes. On social media you are given a specific place to state what you like and what you don't. People always love to know about the person or the company they like.

13) Employees should not use Social Media

It is not true. You can't just stop your employees from using social media. If you will block such sites in your office they will use them when they go home. It will disturb your relationship with your employees and it will not have any advantage.


Access Denied to Social Media


14) Ignore Negative Comments

You should not ignore some comments just because they are negative. You should reply to them and if its your mistake you should admit it and promise to correct it. Even if you don't reply to such comments they are visible to everyone so there is no point in not replying to them.

15) Respond to each Comment

Even don't do this. You should not reply to every comment. They maybe such negative comments that are just for the purpose of teasing you. You should know when to reply and when not to reply.

16) Disable Comments or Delete Negative Comments

If you will disable comments on your social network people will think that you are not interested in listening to their opinion. It is not a good strategy to use on Facebook. Moreover, if you will delete negative comments, it will cause more negative comments. People will say what they want to say even if you don't allow them on your social network. They have authority to say whatever they want on their own social network.


Comments of People


17) If You Have Done Something Wrong Delete It

If you have done something wrong or said something harsh to anyone you should not delete it. People can take screenshot and may publish it. You can't stop them from doing so. Admit your mistakes. This will make people think positive about you.

18) Social Media is Free

Signing up at a social media site is free of cost but then you have to invest something to improve your traffic. This investment is not of money but is of time. You go on social media to get the time of people and in return you will have to give them your time. Interact with them and reply to them.


Social Media is Free


19) Social Media is an alternative to other marketing Strategies

It is not true. Social media can't replace other strategies of marketing. This strategy works best when the other strategies are also in progress. The combined effect of all these marketing strategies will boost the traffic at you website.

20) Write only about Awards

Some people will tell you to write only about the awards won b y your company. My suggestion is that you should publish such things but you should also tell the people about the problems and challenges faced by your company. People are interested in such kind of information.
