You’ve dreamed about it for as long as you can remember, and finally you have started your own business. It is going well, but you know that to stay current and grow as a business, you need to employ social media as a marketing tool — you know it is a great way to increase your overall client base, create and maintain a relationship with customers, spread information in regards to your services and products and also works really well to get your name out there. So you set up various social networking accounts for your business itself.
However, after about six months of putting time and effort into your social networking accounts, you aren’t seeing much difference in your business, the number of followers you have has stopped growing and you rarely get much response to anything you post. If this is happening to you, don’t worry, you might be simply be making some key social media mistakes.
Poor Posting Frequency
You might be posting on too irregular a schedule; it is important to keep up appearances or your followers will forget you exist and/or loose interest.
Not Establishing a Brand

Posting Crappy Content

Not Listening to Your Fans
You don’t listen to feedback; with social networking it is important to engage with your customers so they feel they have a voice that matters, helping to increase brand loyalty and trust.
Not Having a Social Media Plan/Strategy
