One of the biggest mistakes that online business owners make is they will focus on what everyone else is doing to get visitors. In this article I want to show you exactly why you need to avoid social media sites like the plague. There are reasons they don’t work & I want to show you those right now.
People Focus On Social Media Marketing For This Reason:
It is fun and cool. That is exactly why people are trying to build their businesses using other sites like Twitter, Facebook & MySpace. They are fun and everyone else is using them so it must be the right thing to do.
That is a great idea and makes a lot of sense on paper. But you have to realize that just because everyone is doing it does not make it the right thing to do. Everyone was flipping real estate with no money down in 2006 & 2007. We all know what happened when that went bad.
Here Is Why You Need To Avoid It Like Never Before:
The biggest reason you need to stay away from social media marketing is because the conversion rates are absolutely terrible & these sites don’t bring buyers.
People go on these sites to avoid working & network with others that they know. They are not looking to buy things. So you need to realize that you have to work really hard just to get them to come to your site & then work even harder to get them to buy.
Just focus on what already works and you’ll have an easier time & will be able to automate your efforts.
The search engines, pay per clicks & banner advertising still work & are still making people rich.
