Never start a social media post off like this…

No Comments

Don’t turn your Facebook posts into sales patter and your tweets into sadvertising. Don’t blend into the ether of non-discript announcements and bland broadcasts. Do you really want to sound like the latest Churchill advert or the restaurant opposite you? Stop. Think. Make it count. If you and your business had one thing to say today, what would it be and why?

And for future reference…avoid these words like the plague…

  • Don’t forget
  • Half price
  • 50% off
  • Buy tickets here
  • Get in touch
  • Still time to…
  • Good morning Facebook
  • Happy Friday Twitter
  • Sorry…
  • Look at this amazing…
  • We’re the best…
