Contact South West Web Marketing 12 Days Of Social Media: Tips To Improve Your Online Experience

The online culture seems to expand users daily. The computer savvy and those who can barely navigate the Internet are creating Facebooks, Twitters, LinkedIn. You name it, they’ve got it. New users can sometimes cause stress to those who are already pros when it comes to using social media for maximum benefit. With these tips as stocking stuffers, this could be the most beneficial Christmas yet.

On the First Day of Social Media Tips…
my true love gave to me this advice: No swearing online. While you’re out holiday shopping, you may come across a crazy person, desperate to buy the same pair of boots as you. This could be frustrating. Yet while you may feel the need to express your frustration with said crazy person to the whole world, keep it classy online! Use your best judgment when it comes to the language you use in Facebook statuses and new tweets. Regardless of the urge to update, bite your tongue and avoid the online bashing.

On the Second Day of Social Media Tips…
my true love gave me to this advice: Keep the beer in the fridge. Even when you’re of age, posting pictures of yourself getting wasted isn’t the best way to go about impressing potential employers. And don’t think that blurring out the beverage in your hand helps either–that only makes it even more obvious you’re holding some alcoholic drink you don’t want people to see. Take pictures all you want, but keep them away from your online profiles.

On the Third Day of Social Media Tips…
my true love gave to me this advice: Online, we don’t care what you’re doing every second of the day. Everyone has that one online connection that feels the need to update everyone when they go to the bathroom. Don’t be that person! Every so often, it’s a good idea to tweet about the weather or a random thing you’re up to so your followers know it’s a real person behind the screen. But if you want someone to tell your life story to, save your followers and just call your mom. Please.

On the Fourth Day of Social Media Tips…
my true love gave to me this advice: Your profiles are your brand. When heading in for an interview, keep in mind employers have probably scoped you out beforehand. Look at your social media profiles and ask yourself “would I hire me?” If not, it’s time for some editing and disgression in what you post.

On the Fifth Day of Social Media Tips…
my true love gave to me this advice: Spell check! When typing your blog, tweet, Facebook update or what have you online, it’s important to keep in mind correct spelling and grammar rules. Typing like this: dUd3 did u c th3 hawt chick?” generally doesn’t bode well for your brand.

On the Sixth Day of Social Media Tips…
my true love gave to me this advice: If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all–seriously. Even if you’re frustrated with a certain online user or even a friend who doesn’t have the social media profile, try to avoid being a Debbie Downer and raining on their parade. Keep snarky, rude comments to yourself and leave whoever is bothering you alone online. In person’s another story…

On the Seventh Day of Social Media Tips…
my true love gave to me this advice: Lend a hand! When you see someone tweeting a question or posting a question on Facebook, and you know the answer, help a friend out! Give a helpful article or offer your own words of wisdom. It’ll show a positive trait to potential employer and possibly gain you other helpful connections.

On the Eighth Day of Social Media Tips…
my true love gave to me this advice: Don’t be a hermit; communicate! The whole point of social media is to be social! Reach out to people and try to make new, potentially beneficial connections for the future. Who knows, one tweet may change your employed life.

On the Ninth Day of Social Media Tips…
my true love gave to me this advice: Don’t complain about your job online. That’s a big no-no. Keep your opinions of your boss, your lousy pay and your awful coworkers to yourself or the most trustworthy of friends during an in-person conversation–unless you want to be fired.

On the Tenth Day of Social Media Tips…
my true love gave to me this advice: Balance, balance, balance. Not all your tweets and Facebook updates should be about your company. Not all of them should revolve around your personal life either. Find a happy medium and switch off between the two. Your work friends and every day circle of acquaintances will appreciate the mix.

On the Eleventh Day of Social Media Tips…
my true love gave to me this advice: Take advantage of all the platforms. Have a Facebook, make a Twitter. Have a YouTube account, set up a LinkedIn! The more social media platforms you put yourself on, the better the edge you have when employers seek you out.

On the Twelfth Day of Social Media Tips…
my true love gave to me this advice: Be yourself! This might sound like a cop out for the last day of social media tips, but it’s the advice most often forgotten! Don’t give yourself a bland online brand personality. Let the sparkling humor and polite personality shine through and you’ll win over even the grumpiest of Grinches.

So there you have it, The Twelve Days of Social Media Tips. Sing this song, become a social media expert in no time and keep the bah humbugs out of your tune!
