We've Been Failing on Social Media for 2 Years. Here's What We Think It Means.

For past two years, our social media referral traffic has been in decline and our engagement numbers have dwindled.

It's a bit scary to admit:We as a Buffer marketing team---working on a product that helps people *succeed* on social media---have yet to figure out how to get things working on Facebook (especially), Twitter, Pinterest, and more.

Here's what we think it all means.

  • Just got my check for $500, Sometimes people don't believe me when I tell them about how much you can make taking paid surveys online... So I took a video of myself actually getting paid $500 for paid surveys to finally set the record straight. I'm not going to leave this video up for long, so check it out now before I take it down! ◆◆◆ https://tinyurl.com/make2793amonth

  • The methods and techniques in the PE Bible are exclusive to this unique program. The two step system involves low cost off the shelf natural supplements and a specially designed exercise program. Many users experience gains of almost an inch within just a few weeks of starting this unique program! Imagine having 2-4 inches of extra length and girth added onto your penis size, this Penis Enlargement Bible makes it possible. Over 5000 copies of this product have already been sold, and unlike most products on the market there is real video proof from actual users that show REAL results.

  • A couple of days ago I told you about my friend John Collins who was giving away his new enlargement exercises eBook. Well, he just reached out to me this morning and told me his email inbox literally blew up. He couldn't sort through the 230+ emails he had received in the last 48 hours BEGGING him to reveal more about his enlargement methods. John isn't the most technically savvy guy, and at his typical typing speed I estimate it would probably take him about a year to reply to all those e-mails. So, I convinced him to run a webinar and answer the most common questions about natural penis enlargement that he has been receiving. He is going to reveal some pretty shocking things about the enlargement industry, and what makes his two-step process different than anything else you may have tried. The only problem is, seating is very limited due to server capacity, so to reserve your seat you need to register at the link below. Reserve your seat for John's upcoming natural enlargement webinar ♥♥♥ http://ishbv.com/pebible/pdf

We've Been Failing on Social Media for 2 Years. Here's What We Think It Means.

  1. We've Lost Nearly Half Our Social Referral Traffic in the Last 12Months B L O G . B U F F E R . C O M
  2. We've Lost Nearly Half Our Social Referral Traffic in the Last 12Months B L O G . B U F F E R . C O M Here's What We Think It Means
  3. Social referral traffic to the Buffer blog
  4. 43% 53% 45% 72%
  5. Social referral traffic
  6. What's happening?
  7. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ What's happening?
  8. Maybe we need to hire a full-time social media manager. Maybe I'm no good at social media marketing. Maybe our sharing ratio is off:Too much content, not enough conversation. Maybe everyone else is failing,too! Maybe we need to post more often. Maybe we need to post less often.

  10. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ We don't know ...
  11. ... but here's an idea.
  12. Content Crush & The Future of Social Media
  13. Every time someone visits the Facebook News Feed there are on average from friends, people they follow and Pages. 1,500 potential stories
  14. Content Shock We've passed the point where content consumption has peaked and content creation has continued taking off. @markwschaefer
  15. Enter the Algorithm.
  16. Automated software that tracks each user’s actions to serve them the posts they’re most likely to engage with
  17. Social networks are adapting to changing content
  18. We're failing on social media because we're failing to adapt as fast as the social networks are.
  19. I see a couple roads forward
  20. 1. Pay for Reach
  21. For $5, we can reach 800 more people on Facebook - less than a penny a person!
  22. 2. Get better at connecting with an audience.
  23. What if ... we had a Twitter feed so compelling that people wouldn't just hope our tweets showed up in their timeline but they would go directly to twitter.com/buffer all day every day to see absolutely everything we tweeted?
  24. What if ... we had a Facebook page that felt so uniquely valuable, personal, and intimate that our posts arrived in the News Feed as frequently as birthdays and baby announcements?
  25. Here's What We're Excited to Try
  26. DESIGN BEAUTIFUL, SHAREABLE VISUALS B L O G . B U F F E R . C O M
  27. Share, just because.
