4 Social Media Mistakes to Avoid

Unfortunately, mistakes are an unavoidable part of life. However, there are steps we can make to avoid making certain mistakes, especially in social media marketing.

Social media can offer many benefits to brands and is an exceptionally useful tool to add to your marketing strategy, from helping increase awareness of your brand, attracting new customers, and increasing revenue.

But if it is not done correctly, social media marketing can have a detrimental effect on your business. We have had a look at four of the most common social media mistakes to avoid.


1. Blanket sharing on each platform

Treating each social media platform in the same way is a common mistake. Each platform will have its own set of guidelines to consider when posting, and each will have its own unique algorithms. Sharing the same content on all platforms will set you up for failure. Be aware of the full potential of each social media platform, and how use them to your advantage.


2. Neglecting the importance of engagement

It’s called social media for a reason, by simply posting on the platforms and neglecting to engage with your audience will not bring you success. It’s also important to stay active and build a relationship with your customers. The more active and engaging an account is, the more likely it is that posts will perform well.


3. Only sharing internal content

While it is important to drive users back to your site, a common mistake is to post or share solely your own content. To grow your account, it’s essential to share external content. This will drive engagement with others and will result in your own content being shared, liked, retweeted, etc.


4. Lack of planning

It can be easy to overlook the importance of planning social media, and just post content as and when which makes social media marketing a waste of time and money. Set goals and work out a budget and a social media strategy to develop a plan of action.
