Six Outdated #SocialMedia Tactics That Need to Be Put to Rest

Well, if you are one of those who think using the same social media tactic again and again will help you then this perception no more holds true today. The tactics that Mark Zuckerberg used sitting in a corner of the Harvard will not apply for you and your company today.

SEO is very much chancy and you need to cope with the current trend and be up to date. Especially while handling your social media pages, you need a new technique everyday so that your page is visible. In addition, along with this, why do you want to use the same tactics that are helping your business in any way?

Following are some of the techniques that you need to stop immediately:

  1. Posting Links Only

As a social media manager of your company, you must have created links to the content. You should be proud of it, as you have worked hard to create those links but think about a social media account full of links. The result will be a dull customer response. Just links will make your account a dull one.

Instead, manage your links with posts of general interest that raises interest of the customers. You can mix the links with some content that is not linked anywhere and hence customer will find it new and read along.

  1. The Pitch Messages

This is what happens generally, “You found a social media page interesting and you followed it. As soon as you hit follow, you get a buzz on inbox with lots of offers and discounts. What will be your reaction to this?”

These are pitch messages that are hated by customers. These messages make the customers loses interest in you and he feels that he is nothing but an element to make money.

Instead, make use of social media to build strong relationship with the customers. Do not involve in direct selling and create interest in your profile before you offer your services to them.

  1. Mass Following is no no

Many companies believe that mass following will help them create a good web presence and they will get more following as a return. Accounts like these may have many followers but hardly have they got engagement from the public. People consider you as a fake account and you are never noticed.

Instead, follow a general routine and try to follow only those people who are relevant. Unnecessary following will not help you.

  1. Using Bots

There are auto engagement bots, which automatically likes and shares the post of the social media page that you like or follow.  By using them, you can raise fake interest, visibility, esteem amidst your followers, and believe you will the same in return.

Tricks like these are easily pointed out and once people know this, they will not come to you. Moreover, these bots ruin your feed.  Bots make you lose the opportunity of the original interest that people might show in your page.

Instead of using bots, you should target your social media campaign in such a way that it calls for the original engagement of users. Craft ways to put some interesting posts across the social media pages.

  1. The “Best Times to Post” strategy

There is nothing called the best time to post. Many people just wait for that right time to post their content so that most of the people are online at that time and so they get good views. There is no such time as the most appropriate one. If your content is good and engaging, you will automatically get hits, likes and followers.

  1. Not paying attention to optimizing the content

Most of you might be using SEO at various places, but hardly have they used SEO for their social media sharing. SEO is equally important for social media sharing as it is for your other digital marketing campaign.

You need to make use of good keywords to make your social media post popular.

The best SMO company in India is the one who is always up to date with its tactics. Be it SEO or SMO you need to provide something fresh and unique to the audience.
