How to rule social media without a crown?!

Hey ya'll,
So as you read from my last posting I revealed to you all the importance of not buying followers. However, that doesn't mean they're the only options for getting your work heard. Therefore, today I would like to give you some helpful tips to promote your success throughout various social media sites.

#1. Be yourself

- I feel all people have a way of spotting fake individuals. And what I mean about being 'fake' is that people can easily figure out if you are a poser. I find the best way for you to reach people is to be yourself! Talk about things that interest you and you may find others who agree. Before you know it you may find yourself amassing a good following on your social media accounts.

#2. Never a race

-It doesn't matter who has more followers than you do. It is more about who has the better "crowd" following them. You could have over one million people following you on your social media accounts, but that doesn't matter if they're not supportive. Which do you think is better? A million followers or a hundred thousand followers that all share things that you post.

I'd choose the second choice because as a result the second choice could gain you more recognition and allow your work to reach a larger audience :)

#3. Market yourself without marketing

-Never post something like a new product and never explain what it is. Your goal should be to project the strong values of your product with a few short descriptive words that will stand out to your audience that you are projecting to.

#4. Engage their needs

-If you are using social media to market your brand then you have to act like the salesman/entrepreneur that you truly are. As a salesman you have to have a good emphasis that works for you! Whether it's a catch phrase, logo, or just your name, use it as your selling point. Some people are funny while others are incredibly kind. Whatever works for you is how you are going to push your product along with your name.

As Abby Lee Miller stated to her Dance Mom Co-stars "We are building a brand!"

Which is what you are doing. You are opening yourself up to the world to create your own unique signature no one else has because we are all different.

Author R.L. Stine sells the fact that his novels are horror with a weirdness factored into it. While Rap artist Nicki Minaj emphasizes on her curvaceous body to sell records. And even the news anchors throughout America sell themselves through the people they meet during their news career in hope of living their dreams afterward (Alan Lee is an example of this).

What I am trying to say is be yourself and let the chips fall where they may. People are only as motivated about your product as you are selling your product. Also, never give up because the day that you do may be the day you get your break through.

Comment below if you have anything else you'd like to add! Are you engaging your followers properly? If not, what could you do to change that? Or do you use any of the techniques I have stated above? Let me know how it is working for you :) Until Next Time ;*
