15 Best Quotes For Building Up Your Social Media
1) If you make customers unhappy in the physical world, they might each tell 6 friends. If you make customers unhappy on the Internet, they can each tell 6,000 friends. Jeff Bezos. Jeff Bezos is known as being very difficult to work with and impress, but there's no doubt that he understands the importance that reputation has on your business and he's successfully done this in making Amazon the great powerhouse that it is today. Amazon is well known for providing much better than average service and customer support and guards their reputation fiercely. Taking a page from his book, work to make sure that people won't have bad experiences with your platform. The reviews posted here are proof that businesses are held accountable for good and bad service.
2) If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. Tony Robbins. In retrospect, this is kind of an obvious quote. But it makes sense if you think about it. If you've tried the same things on social media over and over again and not gotten any traction or success, it might be time to try something new. Sometimes this means creating different kinds of content and sometimes this might involve trying different forms of advertising. If you haven't tried any email marketing before, go for it and see how it works out for you. If you haven't tried to buy Facebook likes before you should do so and see how it works out for you. If you try out something and it doesn't work for you, that's actually good news because it means that th
3) Good content always has an objective; it’s created with intent. It therefore carries triggers to action. Ann Handley Even if you have access to a lot of resources, it still takes real effort to create high quality social media content. The content should be entertaining or informative or provide some kind of value to the userbase, but the end goal should always be to make sure that you have a goal in mind for posting something. Do you have a call to action in your content that excites people into taking some desired action?
4) People want to do business with you because you help them get what they want. They don’t do business with you to help you get what you want. Don Crowther. People don't follow you on social media or retweet your posts or engage with you out of the goodness of their heart. They do so because you provide them with some kind of value. If you're not doing that, then you won't get any real benefit from your social media. The world out there is tough. Nobody is out there looking to feel sorry for you and give you charity just because you need it. You need to provide others with value to succeed. Being focused on talking about yourself rather than providing real value is actually the first item on our list of top 10 marketing mistakes.
5) Successful companies in social media function more like entertainment companies, publishers, or party planners than as traditional advertisers. Erik Qualman This quote is really thought provoking because it spins the concept of social media around. Once again, it doesn't really exist for your users to serve you, but for you to provide some kind of benefit for your users. This is a concept that is lost on many businesses that devote next to no resources to create great social media content. It's no wonder that they then struggle to get more fans and likes and engagement.
6) These days, social media waits for no one. If you’re LATE for the party, you’ll probably be covered by all the noise and you might not be able to get your voice across. It could only mean that if you want to be heard by the crowd, you have to be fast; and on social media, that means you have to be REALLY fast. Aaron Lee. Twitter and Facebook operate at the speed of light. Nowadays it's easier to find breaking news faster by looking on Twitter than by staring at CNN all day long. If you're consistently waiting days to create the perfect post or comment on some relevant current events topic, you're going to be left in the dust. The real social media leaders have to always be ready to post and actually put in real work to get to the party on time.
7) Never underestimate the vital importance of finding early in life the work that for you is play. This turns possible underachievers into happy warriors. Jeff Bullas. This is something that you have to have some wisdom about, because we live in a hyper-sensitive and politically correct world, but there's no doubt that brands that have a genuine sense of whimsy and have fun with their social media usually end up doing better.
8) When you lose followers because of where you stand – you strengthen you tribe. Glen Gilmore. Being bold and having some actual opinions might offend a few people. But usually you end up doing better with your core audience. You can't be everything to everybody and inspire real love. If you lose a few likes here and there due to your opinions, don't sweat it because you're doing so for the right, rather than the wrong reasons.
9) Social media will help you build up loyalty of your current customers to the point that they will willingly, and for free, tell others about you. Bonnie Sainsbury. It's amazing to me that so many companies get social media so wrong because it's without a doubt the best free advertising you'll ever end up getting. Think about it and do the things needed to build up loyalty. That's an asset that is invaluable to just about any business.
10) Too often, feeling intimidated becomes our excuse not to be awesome. Scott Stratten. Paralysis by analysis is a phenomenon that harms many aspects of peoples' lives. Artists and writers get scared of people being critical of their work and sit on great ideas for years. People get scared of rejection in dating and overthink things and don't take their chance. Don't be scared of creating something that could fail. The worst thing that happens from a positive and genuine attempt at creativity is that you eat a little crow and are forced to get back on the horse once again.
11) LinkedIn is for the people you know. Facebook is for the people you used to know. Twitter is for people you want to know. Unknown That's a possibly flawed, but interesting analysis of some of the various popular social networks. You shouldn't necessarily take this as gospel, but always remember that people use different social networks in different ways. Reposting the exact same content everywhere might save you some time, but is probably not the best idea given the differences you'll encounter in how people react to posts.
12) You can buy attention (advertising). You can beg for attention from the media (PR). You can bug people one at a time to get attention (sales). Or you can earn attention by creating something interesting and valuable and then publishing it online for free. David Meerman Scott Once again, the important lesson to be learned from this is obvious. Life isn't handed to you on a silver platter. You have to create value in order to succeed on social media.
13) In Social Media the squeaky wheel gets the oil. You have to put yourself out there, to find people who will relate or even debate with you, depending on what you are looking for. Jessica Northey There's millions of people chatting on Twitter and Facebook. Why should anybody important write about you or Tweet you if you're being boring and timid and acting scared to express your ideas?
14) Social media is just a buzzword until you come up with a plan. Unknown Virtually every business goes on Facebook and Twitter these days, but unfortunately most of their pages are boring and pointless. Why are they even on there if they have no intention of putting forth any effort? You should create a long term strategy and have goals and work towards achieving those goals with your posts and interaction. Keeping a long term goal in mind and giving yourself some direction is necessary for having much needed social motivation that will keep you posting consistently, which is something most brands fail at.
15) What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas; what happens on Twitter stay on Google forever! Jure Klepic. While it's not necessarily true anymore that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas (ironically, thanks to social media), it's true that your online reputation can be permanently harmed if you provide bad service or let problems linger for too long without addressing them. This is why things like online reviews or attempts to receive customer service on Twitter are so important to any business. One outraged customer having a rough time can blow up your reputation. So work to fix issues and avoid the potential for shattering your reputation. There's a reason that Comcast is reportedly the most hated company in America!
