Let's socialize!


#1

Okay, the #1 advice newbies give each other is promote on social media: Twitter, Facebook, whatnot

Technically, the advice your getting is this: “Spam the heck out of your social media (without socializing) friends until they all drop you.”

Social media consist of more than Facebook, Google, Twitter - logically speaking, this forum is a form of social media. We come here and socialize, give and take advice, on and on.

After a while, you get a certain trust factor given to you by the community for your long term participation. People call you to ask for your opinion or advice. When you have someone calling you via forum or community that you’ve never seen before, then you know there are probably way more silent lurkers than those logged in.

Unless you specifically ask your new clients how they found you, there is no way for certain to know. Perhaps there are more lurkers than you are aware and they like you.

So, stop advising newbies to spam!

Use social media wisely. It’s a lot of work, but fun work. Granted, not all my sellers participate on the forum but a good portion do.

My personal opinion, the reason Paul has done so well on 5r, as a new seller who came here as a PRO, is because he took the time to socialize on the forum.

Just my 2 cents.

So, let’s take the time to “SOCIALIZE”!

Welcome to 5r forum, I’m Gina.

I never promote my gigs on social media as I know my followers will not be interested at all, i make regular YouTube videos and original music and thats what they follow me for. The few times i have posted about my gigs ive got a few unfollowers so I just dont bother at all. I think the forum is a great way to promote gigs, i have also hired a few people who have posted on the forum!

Now sing :musical_note: along with me…

Under the sea
Darling it’s better
Down where it’s wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin’
Full time to floatin’
Under the sea
