4 replies
HI,

I am anti social media due to the time suck and I don't like dealing with trolls/time wasters etc..which social media seems to spcialize in.

So above an email list is there any advantages in FB/Twitter/ Social media over this? |If so can you tell me what they are?

Thank you

    Can't say I've had the same issues as you as the key is always targeting specificity the users you want to be engaging with. If this isn't done right then I imagine you will see a flood of un-targetted people who will surely rebel against what you are promoting by posting junk.

    Just remember social media isn't about shear numbers. 100,000 followers that are un-targetted will never be as valuable as 1000 targeted users who will share and sign up.

    Facebook seems to be the less of two evils in terms of Troll's due to it being more transparent and anything they do easily found by friends and family. So if you are going to target a platform I would start here.

    Don't aim for high numbers start small and get the sign up's rolling in by starting a fan page and offering related content alongside your offers.

      Click "hide post" from stupid trolls. That way only his friends can see his post and then ignore him. Works like charm.

    Email list is king so I drive people FROM social (Twitter and Instagram mainly) profiles by using my bio link driving directly to a squeeze page to get people onto my list.

    Try that out!

      Exactly.

      It's not about vanity stats in the hundreds of thousands or whatever.

      Instagram is gonna get you a high quality list.

      I'd take 100 responsive subscribers over 10000 tyre kickers any day.
