Facebook: Beyond the Likes

#TipTuesday
#TechTuesdays



You may have noticed that the number of followers have decreased for your Facebook Brand Page. That is because after March 12, Facebook began purging all inactive accounts. Likes that you obtained through paid advertising or from years ago may be connected to inactive accounts. It makes sense. But, it's also discouraging if you are trying to build your followers. Before you despair, remember that everyone is basically in the same boat. Getting your numbers back up may not happen as quickly as it has in the past, but it is still simple as 1 2 3. #lesgosocial

1. Invite friends. It has probably been a few months or years since you have invited people from your personal friend list to Like your Facebook page.

2. If you are responsible for social media for your business or organization, adjust your success metrics to match what Facebook insights are telling you..beyond the Likes.

3. Love the one you're with: Encourage engagement with existing followers and that will attract more followers. Noone wants to Like yet another "dead" Facebook page. Although hashtags are not as popular on facebook, they are still used in trending search topics. Just be sure to use the social media hashtags that already have a conversation brewing as opposed to attempting to recreate completely new tags.

Do All Blogs Go to Heaven?
A couple years ago I started to see a decline in my blog reader engagement.  Unlike the 95% of bloggers who give up on their blogs, I knew what to do. After all, I have been blogging for almost 15 years. I simply wasn't doing it. I was spreading myself too thin, disorganized, and to be honest...a bit bored/burnt out.
Here we are two years later. With the new addition to the family (shown below), I have less time than ever. So, why in the heck would I decide to rebirth a blog? Good question. There is a lot of research on the increase in inbound traffic f…

Is There Room for Impulse in Business Decision-Making?

If you have a pulse, at some point you have done something on impulse. Recently, tennis player Svetlana Kuznetsova cut her hair during a match before returning and winning the match. I don't know the details surrounding the emergency haircut, but definitely looked like an impulsive decision at its finest.



In art and sports, spontaneity and split-second decison-making are often encouraged. In the business world, not so much. If you are starting a business, own a business, or even work in a business --you probably have plenty of cautionary tales of impulsive decisions gone wrong. The six-figure-earning account executive who got into a fist fight with a co-worker, the business owner who built an expense around money not yet earned, the employee who leaves a passive-ag…
