The Spider, The Web and The Fly
I’ll expand a bit more on this over the coming weeks, but I’d like you to think of your Social Media in this way:
These are all important areas, but who are you? I hope would say you are the Spider, the spider looks for the best areas to be, plans where and how to build its entrapment – The Web
The Web as we know it is the World Wide Web and in the last few years the Spider has grown to entrap billions of Flies all around the world. Social Media has drawn even more people to The Web making The Web even bigger. We use this web for our sales and sharing of our blogs.
The fly, well it can be all of us, we are all using the World Wide Web, but it’s this area that we need to plan and use like a spider to catch our prey, dinner or ‘Sales’. With using Social Media in a way that grows it you need to plan and have actions that will grow your Web. Some people buy followers and likes, some people like to follow back and use keyword searches, some pay out of the nose for #promoted tweets, you are caught in the spiders web making you pay out.
I’d put those who are paying for the expensive promoted tweets a fly, they have been entrapped and are paying much in building their own web.
So where are you? Are you the Spider, are you planning and building your Web? Is your Web getting bigger and bigger by the day so you can gain your dinner, I use that as money is tight with everyone, the more money one seems to have they more they spend so still they are struggling with money. Or are you the fly, are you getting caught up in the entrapments of The Web, by this I mean the quick rich schemes, the buying of followers, the buying of likes, the buying of your YouTube views we know people aren’t really viewing your pages, they are just gaining points and to get those points they have to remain on your page for 20 seconds (YoulikeHits is a very popular one).
Another good entrapment especially when it comes to Social Media is Hacking, Millions of people have their accounts hacked daily and it’s all down to a simple process…. ‘They say something bad about you’.. then give you a link which takes you to a Twitter login page, but be careful is it really ‘Twitter’ or another trap to obtain your details, check the link/address bar at the top of your page!
As you might know from my profile I am a Professional Tweeter and Social Media Manager managing company accounts around the world. I’m on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook Monday – Friday 9am – 4.30pm, but not always on my accounts. Social Media is always changing it’s platform, but one thing always remains the same… be active, be social, make friends and have some fun in the process. If you apply these 4 things to your Social Media accounts you will see your Web grow!
Which are you ? The Spider or the Fly?
