Don’t be fooled by this terrible social media marketing advice.

Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

Thanks to @bloomingthemes for finding this one. I like how some of these points actually dismiss conventional thought–or at least the original "rules" of social media. Social media use is ever-evolving, so these are some great guidelines going forward.

  1. Excellent tips, Danielle. Love the phrase “spraying content.” (Hint: You don’t want to get caught doing that–and it you’re doing it, you will get caught.)

    • I know I’m guilty of this to some extent, but partially because I want to make sure that the little bit of quality content I am posting gets noticed. I try not to spray too much content over all social media outlets. I only concentrate on a few, and among those few, two or three in particular. My product is myself, not a product or service, so having a substantial number of followers or hits on this blog do make a difference to me!
