The Experience: After Three weeks - Learning the Ropes of Social Media

Last Update: December 14, 2015

Almost done with course 4 - well my favourite part of the course: SOCIAL MEDIA. Being on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest has made things fun - well, not as fun as i thought. Facebook like 9gag - if you know what I mean. So am still contemplating whether to use Facebook. Facebook going to be a challenge with regards to not wasting time on social media.

I created a new account on twitter for my niche, @LacIntolerSol (A follow would be nice) and created pins on Pinterest. Am still learning the ropes of social media and how it would make me successful.

Well Google +, well I post daily just to get better rankings on google. I do not know if Google + really helps my nice.

I would like to hear your comments of how Social Media contributed to your success? How could I use Social Media more effectively? Am I missing out, if I do not use Facebook?

awesome!
Followed and liked your three new posts.

Social Media has served me very well. I continually get daily traffic from my social media platforms. Now, I do have about 25,000 followers on my Twitter accounts. But, it IS doable! Stay with it!

Sounds like you are making great strides! I am only 1 month into WA and my new site so I don't have a lot to report on the success of social media. I have focused on more on Google+, Twitter, and Pinterest. I am with you on Facebook. I am not sure I want to focus so much time on it. Perhaps in the future. So for now I am focusing on just those 3 and will add Facebook later. There just aren't enough hours in the day for all of it! So I am choosing to write quality content rather than play on social media for the time being.

Best wishes to you!
