Facebook – A learning curve. What did I do wrong?
I have been spending a fair bit of time on social media trying to build an online presence.
I joined a whole lot of facebook groups most of whom allowed you to post online opportunities only to get facebook notifications saying “this post has been removed – it looks like spam”.
Well hello, yes I am trying to get people to look at my affiliates – but obviously, I was doing it wrong!!! Back to the drawing board.
It seems you can add a giveaway and send them to a sales funnel or to your website, but not to an affiliate link. Oops. Back to the drawing board. Luckily I did not get put in Facebook Jail.
I started to build up my Twitter following, only I began to notice that I was getting more new followers, but less overall followers each time I logged in. OK, so it seems people can be precious.
If you don’t follow back very quickly they think it isn’t because you are extremely busy… it must be that you are not ‘active’ enough although regularly posting.
Then again there are those who follow to unfollow. These mindless individuals are a nuisance as I have to waste my time unfollowing back.
So I try to look at my followers daily and follow back. I was trying to avoid following unsuitable profiles by taking time to look at each individual profiles.
However, this proved to be too time-consuming so I decided to simply follow back and individually delete those that tweet pornographic material when I come across them rather than check each individual follower.
Yep, I have had a couple of very explicit ones…. which is why I considered not immediately following back.
