The bad things about social media: Another facet Gurus rarely mention
To begin, I am pro social media marketing and how a good campaign on social media may earn somebody some fortune.
Wanna mention the bad things about social media!
may find gurus here at WA convincingly talking about the usefulness being strategist on social media and how this can be effective in online affiliate marketing.
===>But what are other sad truths about online marketing and social media? If my target is a good reach and traffic on my website, then what about the civilizations, family backgrounds, origin, brief the "purchasing power" of my audience?
"Purchasing Power" refers to the extent to which someone has available funds or saving to PURCHASE goods or services.
More concretely, purchasing power can also refer to money or credits that is available for someone to spend on consumption of goods and services.
If you're living in developed countries, this might sound weird or unreasonable, but your sound understanding would unveil to you the truth of this saying of mine: "You can shrink from doing whatever wrongdoing, but can never your background, never your origin!" Look at how it might be wrong to generalize hints on social media marketing:
Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, G+, LinkedIn, and the like
===> Sad truth: Look back deep on your Facebook friends repertoire! How many foreign friends do you have, I mean those from outside your country? You'll find that 70 to 80% of your friends on social media such as Facebook, twitter, and the like are of the same citizenship as you!
If you want to monetize your site it's pretty easier for guys from countries with high purchasing power to do so!
===> about someone who's got 10k followers of his countrymen and women because s/he's the first one in his district to have set foot into an airplane? But who's from a country with GPD that is below the threshold?
===>about someone who is got 100k friends on Facebook can only read their mother tongue or indigenous languages?
===>about someone who's got good ideas to share on social media but also is followed by a considerable number of elites with little purchasing power?
Appeal to gurus and online marketing consultants
I have seen a lot of people devoted to helping other people even in this online marketing business. And here at WA and probably elsewhere, HELPING visitors is the primordial thing one must have to be successful with online affiliate marketing
===>Would we please think of some sort of INCLUSIVE ONLINE AFFILIATE marketing where we would develop and individualize social media strategy campaigns to cater for the needs of those potential affiliate marketers from disadvantaged backgrounds?
Who knows?===>We may help avoid some drownings in the Mediterranean Sea!!!
Remember! A good deal of may have the power to pay monthly subscriptions for online course like this one at WA! But they're likely to quit not because they don't see the usefulness of the platforms and lessons but because they hardly find them contextual or suitable for their own background! And I share their feeling of loneliness and the question that keeps nagging in their hearts: "I'm vowed to everlasting failure due to a family background and environment I have not chosen?"
You will just one saying: "We know people from the same backgrounds you're talking about who've amassed fortune"... But did they do it while staying the those barren places?
They had to move....they made new friends from high purchasing power societies!!!!
Or simply they were disadvantaged in developed societies and emerged with good ideas, which is easier that doing the same when having 100k social media friends who don't earn $1/day!!
