Social Media Update October 2018
Last post I wrote about my thoughts on social media fans. I considered whether those following me were fans or followers.
I added this pin to my Social Media accounts to see what reaction it brought.
Instagram had the best response with 55 likes and 4 comments.
Google+ got 2 plus1’s
Twitter had 114 impressions (went through people’s feed0 but no response
Facebook – no response
Pinterest – 221 Impressions, no clicks or saves.
The biggest bummer was that Google search consul told me that only one click went through to my website.
I still need to work on my social media profiles. Although they are continuing to grow, people are not reading my content. Either it is too boring and they can’t be bothered reading it, or they just hit the like button to be social.
I have spent some time on my profiles, ensuring that I have the most information that I can on my bio. Where possible I have added some keywords to my name. I hope that when people do look at my profile they see a real person and it will attract some genuine fans.
Twitter 3225 followers
Google+ 136 followers
Instagram 438 followers, this did get up to 500 when I spent some time posting and commenting, but quickly dropped back when I went back to one or two photos a day.
Facebook 1815 friends. I have two pages and some followers but my post reach is only 5 -9 people.
LinkedIn. I have sent of many connection requests and now have 308 connections. I have just put my first post into the feed. This is my first blog post telling people all about whom I am.
Pinterest. This has grown the most as I have spent some time repinning posts as well as my own photos. I also have 50 boards. I have been invited to post on 5 group boards. I spent a reasonable amount of time here this past fortnight and increased my following by 600 people within this timeframe.
Numbers are increasing, but fans are still scarce. I have updated all my blog posts so that they have headings and look more professional and I shall be sharing one every day for the next few weeks. I hope to get some traffic back to this blog as well as see an increase in fans.
