10 Reasons Why Your Social Campaign is a Failure!

If you’ve been working on your social media campaign, and haven’t experienced any great results yet – it’s possible that your campaign is a failure. This is the time to sit up and take stock of what you did wrong, and try to correct it! To help you along your way, here are the top 10 reasons that social media campaigns fail.

#1: A Sales Heavy Campaign
Surely the most common of all mistakes, is the sales heavy social campaign. You’re selling, marketing and pitching too much, and not giving your community anything of value. Instead, stick to the 80/20 rule. Eighty percent content, 20% sales!

#2: You’re Winging It
Social media is easy-peasy. Who needs a plan? Posting and working with social media without a plan is a one way road to failure. Stop winging it, and create a strategy and a schedule, so that you don’t waste your time.

#3: Automated Nightmare
It’s nice to think that you can automate everything. But you can’t. Spewed out content in bulk is the worst thing you can do for your fan pages. Unfortunately there is no quick fix solution in social media. It takes time and effort. Stop automating!

#4: Same Rubbish, Different Page
If your social strategy has no defining features, of course it isn’t going to work. Why would anyone spend time on a page that always says the same stuff as everyone else? You need to be original, and ADD to the social conversation.

#5: Me, Me, Me, Us, Us, Us
If your social media pages look like a one way conversation, then you’re either not posting on them, or you’re posting one way dialogue. Stop speaking about yourself and start addressing the people that matter – your fans.

#6: Never Giving Back
The keystone of any successful social strategy is to give back to your community. If you don’t give them free things, discounts, coupons, competitions, games – or engage them in any way, they’re not going to care about you.

#7: The Inexperience Killer
Throwing someone that doesn’t know how to work with a social strategy in the middle of yours, isn’t going to turn out well. Social media is fun, but it’s also hard work, and you need to be experienced. Send them on a course, or hire someone better.

#8: Lack of Site Understanding
Each social site can highlight and enhance your business in specific ways. Learning how to use this to your advantage, is key to your overall strategy. Posting the wrong content on the wrong sites will lead to disaster.

#9: It’s All The Same as Print Media
Content drives your social campaigns, but treating this content like you treat print media content is a bad idea. Online content is light hearted, engaging, fun and informative. It’s not journalistic, complex, dense and analytical.

#10: Focusing on Viral Content
Spending all of your time and resources trying to create ‘viral’ content is not a good strategy. Viral content is rare, and there is no real formula to follow. It’s likely that you’ve ended up with more misses than hits. Focus on great content instead.

Snapping in Real Time is a New Hyperconnectedness

From texting to status updates, photo sharing and hash tags... Sure, everyone’s on WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Twitter and Instagram too. But Snapchat is where people share what’s happening in their lives in real time. For hyperconnected #teens, snapping is like talking—only with videos, doodles, and filters.

Spectacles: the camera-glasses that have become the season’s must-have millennial accessory. They capture the world the way people see it—which is thrilling to watch. 
Memories: Memories enable Snapchat users to share photos and videos captured outside of Snapchat to your stories.
Circular Video:  With circular video, Snapchat has solved the age-old argument of whether video should be recorded and shared in landscape or portrait. And as more and more people begin to consume video on mobile devices and tablets, circular video could become the norm (and personally, I hope it does).
Here’s a quick demo of circular video in action:

From almost nothing in 2012, Snapchat has grown spect…

"Whatever Will Be Will Be" (Que Sera, Sera) | Children's Song

When the ultra-talented actress/singer Doris Day first recorded the song "Que Sera, Sera - Whatever Will Be, Will Be", she did not have much fondness for the song. After the final notes of Frank DeVol's arrangement of the original 1956 version of "Que Sera" echoed out of the recording studio and into silence - Ms. Day commented in deadpan fashion: "Well, that's the last you'll ever hear of THAT silly song!". You see, Doris looked upon it primarily as a children's song - lightweight - and she did not think it would have lasting appeal. Fate and popular taste begged to differ.

My impression upon hearing this 1964 version was that here, Doris infuses the song with a certain degree of extra warmth which is not evident in the 1956 version. In the original version, she sings it sweetly enough, but at the same time it is pretty much a "matter of fact" presentation of the song. Here, the love that she now has for the song in 1964 is qu…
