Social Media could be killing your business!

Social Media is killing my business1) Do you know who your target Market it?

Or are you guessing?

Have you done an analysis of any kind to know who your target market is and where they hang out online?


2) Do you advertise your business and you all the time?

Do you try to sell  something or some type of service every time they look at you in any of the Social Media venues?  Have you done it so much they turn you off in their mind and never read your information?

3) Do you ever talk about anyone else?

Do you use the 80/20 Pareto Principle?   Give back to the community and to your readers 80% of the time and talk about your business 20% off the time?

Hate to tell you if you are not sure who your target market is, where they hang out on line, only talk about me, me, me and never give back to the community, Social Media is not killing your business YOU are.
