Why I Turned Off My Auto-Post Service and the Amazing Results that Followed


Published on

Looking Back On the Past
For the past year, I’ve been drilling into people that they need to automate as much as possible when it comes to social media. I think I may need to take back some of what I’ve said at this point. The reason is that when I started to automate and have everything set to auto-post, I lost that ever so important personal touch. Don’t get me wrong, the information I was sending out was still of high value to my social followers, but it just seemed kind of blah and not personable.

Here’s What Happened
Once all my automation stopped, I started posting information when I was online myself and was able to instantly engage in conversations with people. It was really me in real-time, interacting and adding value to conversations with my followers. My social relationships grew exponentially, my social followers grew rapidly, and my quality of social followers increased. I was able to start using hashtags that are popular on each individual social network to drive highly qualified and specific traffic to my posts. Using personalized hashtags was a huge benefit to seeing my personal brand explode in popularity.

What I Learned
I learned that by trying different things in my social media branding efforts, I may get the results I’m looking for by accident. In this case, by shutting down my automation service, I actually turned on my personalization service. The main part is in the effort of trying different things. I do see the value in auto-posting for some industries, it’s just not what I’m personally looking for at this time. I don’t post and run anymore, today I post and chat with my followers. That being said, why don’t you leave a comment and let’s chat and see what works for you.
