Social media engagement – the power of Thank You
One of the most important elements of good social media engagement
can be summed up in three words: saying Thank You
In the current frenetic climate online of 'Like Me, Follow Me, Add Me'
the plain and simple act of saying Thank You to those followers and fans who are consistently
passing on your content within their networks is a powerful act as part of a long-term and relationship-based social media marketing
But many people forget
to say Thank You.
Sharing and passing on good content is, of course, the hub which oils
all good social media marketing
principles: if you spend time and energy producing and distributing great social media content
, the results can be spectacular in terms of reach
I regularly review those who are spreading the love on my behalf, by passing on blog content, adding comments to blog posts, sharing my content within their networks, and generally being awesome advocates.
With that in mind, I’m going to say an official, wholehearted and extremely grateful Thank You
to Hana Guenzl
, founder of the Deep Vision Image blog
– focusing on branding
, from Sydney. It’s a great blog
, too – as you can see here
Thank You, Hana - I appreciate your advocacy. It is noticed
. It is appreciated
. It is valued
There are a few simple things you can do today to add the power of Thank You
within your social media engagement
* Be present
and notice who spreads your social media content.
* Be grateful
and give them a meaningful and public Thank You.
* Be consistent
and keep producing brilliant content for them.
How are you
saying Thank You to the superstars in your
social media networks?
When was the last time you said Thank You for the advocacy
of a genuine, well-meaning and sincere fan, follower or supporter?
Without Thank You
, social media engagement
becomes a cold, hard, transactional process – rather than an exercise in genuine connection
