  33. 33. 5 Mistakes Companies Should AvoidWith Social Media… 1. Signing up then not participating. A tell-tale sign that Twitter is nothing more than a check-off on your social media check-list: when you rarely post to Twitter or Facebook it will show. 2. Self Promotional Tweets. Accounts that sound more like cars salesmen, constantly using promotional Tweets to tout their own internal messages. 3. Fail to generate Twitter traffic ‘to anything”. Having specific landing pages (ie: a blog post on your site) that are linked to in Tweets or Facebook is the best idea. The blog serves as the central component to your social media strategy.
  34. 34. 5 Mistakes Companies Should AvoidWith Social Media… 4. Failing to engage in the conversation. Social media and tools such as Twitter, provide the most efficient means of creating personal network with your current and potential audience, but this does requires more than just posting about the organization; it requires talking and responding. 5. Starting a social media campaign without a plan. Its like running a marathon without prior training. It will seem like a good idea until you realize you are not ready for it. Social media consultants can add valuable insight and prepare the company for a social media campaign.
  35. 35. By the end of2011 half the companies online using social networks will manage them wrong, creating consumer doubt and decreased brand value. Why? Rushing in without a planned strategy with benefits outlined for both consumer and company.
