Hello everyone, we hope you are all well and ready for another busy day ahead. We sure are on this side!
Yesterday we spoke about thinking before tweeting, first and foremost, thank you all who have commented and reblogged the post, it is much appreciated. We hope you have found the content relevant to you but the journey doesn’t end yet, there is plenty more in Social Media to speak about like today’s topic, automating activity in Social Media, good or bad? What do you think?
There are many aspects of Social Media that can become disastrous if not done right, automating material is one of them. Do you ever receive a message immediately after you follow someone? Does it ask you to take a look at their product or like a specific page? Yes, that’s right, it’s most likely this message has been automated to be sent to every single new follower.
Now, this is a great strategy as it saves a lot of time but does it really work? And how do you measure its effectiveness?
There are so many services available online that allow users to automate material but they do not offer any way of monitoring how effective it is, at least not for free so how do you track it without having to spend a fortune? For general users it is a great idea to use free services like bit.ly to monitor your links, if there isn’t any links in the message then it may be a good idea to include them as it allows for easier tracking.
Overall, automating is extremely helpful and it can increase your coverage tenfold but one has to make sure the right material is being shared as if you share a tweet about an onion when your audience speaks only of potatoes then there will be a problem.
