Are you an Engager?
Do you actively participate in your Social Media when people communicate with you?
You post a status update or share information, people reply or comment on this, or you notice that they have viewed your profile – do you comment or reply?
One of the major things you hear people complain about when it comes to Social Media, is that sometimes, it is very one-sided, even when your posts, comments and updates are very informative. The question is, do you acknowledge everything and interact?
- On Facebook – people follow you, comment on your posts and like your posts, what do you do?
- On Instagram – people follow you, like your photo and post a comment, what do you do?
- On LinkedIn – people view you, people ask to connect to you, like your posts and comment on your posts, what do you do?
- On Twitter – people follow you, tweet you and re-tweet you, what do you do?
The above are just four examples of Social Media platforms and what happens, so what are your answers to “what do you do”?
- Do you ignore?
- Selective answer?
- Or reply to every thing that people do to your various aspects of Social Media?
When you start becoming very popular and have lots of interaction, at what point do you hold back on replying to everything and thanking people for interacting you?
This can always be a hotly debated topic and one where there is not always a right or wrong answer or is the answer selective based on the platform? Do you reply to everything on LinkedIn but not everything on all the other platforms, for example? Or just reply to everything you are able to, in that moment of time that you have just come on-line for?
At the end of the day – what is important? Is it that you use certain platforms for your business? So you only reply to comments or posts in-connection to your business? Do you acknowledge or thank people who have followed you, liked your items or shared them?
Personally, I think you need to be undertaking, what is of major influence and engaging to help you and your business develop and grow. That way, you are not only learning but you are engaging and influencing with your Circle of Influence to create to a network of connections that truly benefits you.
