This is part one of a two-part series.
Have you experienced social media fatigue?
Blame it on the heat.
Or, blame it on boredom and doing things practically the same way, everytime.
You could probably blame it on exhaustion or lack of energy and the drive to start something new.
Or, worse, blame it on the feeling of being so overwhelmed with too much going on all at the same time that you are already spreading yourself too thin!
Whatever you want to blame it on, a day (or two) will come that you will get tired of all of it – Facebook, Twitter, Google +1, and all other social media platforms! You practically just want to shut everything off and not socialize online and enjoy your quiet corner on the Web.
And, yes, they call it Social Media Fatigue.
When do we say enough is enough?
To Be Or Not To Be Virtually
Existent: That Is The Question.
Let’s face it: in the current scenario, when you are doing business online, it’s a must to be socially networking or doing the rounds in social media sites if you want to get around and start marketing yourself and your product or service.
The same real-world concept of “no man is an island” practically holds true in the WorldWideWeb and the rules of engagement are much complicated because you have to toggle through different platforms and its intricacies and protocols and what-have-yous until you use it well to build your connections or network.
I have oft-repeated in the past that if you really want to succeed in your online marketing business, you have to build relationships and connect with people.
Marketing Is Really A
There are just a lot of social media sites out there and if you think of the various platforms with which you can be a part of and engage yourself into, believe me, the task could just be so overwhelming you’ll get crazy at times!
Take the example of Facebook and Google.
Let’s say I’m already active on Facebook and have since socialized with a group of people that already includes prospects, is there really a need for me to sign up for Google+1 so I can reach a totally new market or audience?
Is the thought or idea of starting a new group that appealing enough, business-wise? That would mean I would have to start from scratch unless all the people I will be connecting with on Google+1 would practically be the same set of people that I have already connected with on Facebook.
Which brings me to another question: so, what’s the point?
