5 Social Media Tips from Seinfeld

The memorable Seinfeld moments listed below provide some valuable tips for effective social media practices:

Don’t be a low-talker

Don’t be afraid to share your knowledge on social networks. Talk about what current issues and events are relevant to your readers. You ultimately want to create an online presence in the social media world.

Yada yada yada

After hearing Jerry’s attention grabbing comment (intro), George had to hear the details. You should always leave your readers craving the ‘yada’. Encourage them to click the links, leading them to a landing page or website.

Online social networks are built on shared opinions, and these opinions can be both positive and negative. It’s important that you handle customer complaints carefully while always avoiding argumentative language and tone.

Don’t double dip

People often post the same content on multiple social networks and we suggest you do the same. However, we strongly recommend that you don’t simply copy/paste the same phrase. Reword your posts and post them at different times throughout the day.

You can always spare a square

Another major aspect of social media is sharing your content with others. Encourage readers to share your content and look for interesting content from others  to post on your pages.

I’m out there Jerry and I’m LOVIN’ every minute of it!

Engaging in social media has benefits and can be an effective marketing tool when handled properly. Use these lessons from Seinfeld to help you get the most value out of your social media efforts.
