Let’s assume you have been active on your social networks. You have been not only posting but liking and sharing others’ post. You have taken the time to friend new people in the hopes that they will like you back. Yet, you have noticed they have not, what then? Do you remove them? Do you ignore it and move on, or do you do something different?
First, let’s examine why you added them in the first place. Are they in the same industry as you? Are they fans or friends of a fan? What made them stand out? The thing about social networks is that they are a social gathering place to not only get in touch but also promote. Now some users are never on their accounts, they never check their messages or mentions. Some use programs only and you can tell those by what is in their timeline. If all you ever see is Promo, Promo, Promo then most likely they are not really there to socialize and will not connect with you or anyone unless their marketing person tells them too.
This brings me to the reminder “Promo, Promo, Promo” post will only get you promotions on your page. The true pattern is “Promo, Like/Friend/Follow, Personal Post, Re-Share, Promo.” See how promos are only done twice in the 5 times? That is because when a viewer comes to a page that is full of nothing but promotions, they lose interest quickly. People most likely know who you are when they find your network. You need to let them know what you are about, your interest, and the fact you are willing to share others items. This makes you a Person not a program.
So back to the original question… what do you do? Review what they have put out. Is it a combination? If so, then you reach out to them, post a compliment on something they have put out. By being social even in the smallest way you are not only showing that you care but that you yourself can be valuable in their own promotions. Also, when you post on their post, their friends, fans, followers can see your comments and potentially find you.
