Spam is definitely not Sexy
The different social networks fill various needs for its users. Linked In is better for B2B and professional networking. Facebook is your social circle online. Twitter is everything from friends to business to news. If you are in the Adult Entertainment Industry then you are most definitely on Twitter. In fact, you might not be on the other social networks because they make it so challenging to successfully market yourself.
So you are on Twitter, how do you get people to visit your blog, your site, buy your product, vote for you, etc. In essence how do they become clients?
The biggest mistake people make is spam. We have all seen the people who get out there and talk about their product…all day…all the time…incessantly…ad nauseum. If you want to be ignored, do this. You will be hidden on Facebook and no one will read your tweets.
The adult entertainment industry is riddled with Spam. Hell, you could argue that it is a driving force behind the industry. So what is the balance between marketing yourself and being flagged for spam. If someone flags you as a spammer then you will be hidden, or unfollowed, or simply ignored.
If you want people to become clients, then you need to become friends first. You need to become a real person online.
- Be the person who shares information.
- Be the person who says good morning and wishes people happy birthday.
- Be the person who re-tweets other peoples blog posts and pictures.
- Be the person who offers good advice, for free, for no other reason other than you can.
- Be the person who responds when someone mentions you
- Be more than a pretty picture and a sexy link
Now you are dynamic. You are interesting. You are a source of information and you are someone people will look to. In the midst of all this good will, tell people about your website or video release. Ask them for to check it out. If you are looking for votes, then ask for support. Ask people to spread the word. And when they do, thank them. Pepper your own goals into your relationship development. Your friends will respond to your requests. They will read your posts, they will go to your site, they will give you their support. They will do this because you are multi-faceted and not all about yourself. They will do this because you have build real relationships with them. This relationship will drive them to spend more money, refer you to other people and will create a lasting (and profitable) relationship with your clients.
