Social Media Funny – Learn To Use It Right
My man MJ @MJGottlieb decided to be funny and put together this picture below for me
I don’t see the resemblance, but maybe you can haha
I’ll give you a minute to take that in and enjoy a good laugh on me
Ok, you done laughing?
Good let’s roll on…
Now, after I explained to my “buddy” MJ that he was just jealous of my “sexiness” I decided to share that picture on Facebook, Twitter and Google+
Why? It’s personal, it’s funny and social media loves funny!
I first put it up on Facebook since that is where social media funny works best.
After about 1 hour the image had:
19 Likes and 44 Comments
Link below takes you to the Facebook stream, where you can read the funny comments and if you like, add in your own
After that I shared it to my Facebook Page @MoneyDummyBlog
The picture got another 8 likes and 7 comments. Not to bad considering it already did so well on my wall.
After all the sharing was done, the image ended up with 29 Likes and 68 Comments!
Why Was This A WIN-WIN?
For my followers, it was something funny and personal about me and gave them a chance to share some jokes with me directly.
For me, I had a great time and literally “LOL” for over an hour and I got to share myself and show that…
I’m a normal guy.
I have a personality.
I can laugh at myself.
I have a sense of humor.
I was born with my sexiness
Now do you think having my followers see and learn all those things about me will help my blog and business and help me grow my influence online?
Hell Yes It Will!
Maybe not today or tomorrow, but it will help my journey in the long run.
How NOT To Do Funny
Are you one of those bloggers that share kitten, puppy and any other silly, cutesy pictures across social media sites every day?
If so, please stop.
Why? Sharing those types of pictures will be of ABSOLUTELY no benefit to your blog and business!
To get the best results from social media you should share quality, TARGETED stuff and mix in a little bit of bit of funny and personal.
If you are sharing more funny and cute, you will be known as the person that shares funny and cute shit.
Congrats, you just became the old lady that lives with 100 cats! haha
Not a good look!
You are NOT being “branded” as the person that can help people grow their blog or business or social media influence.
Remember the Win-Win above?
If you share funny correctly it will help you just as much as sharing a helpful post or a great tip.
That doesn’t mean to NEVER share cute, silly pictures on social media. But try to keep those to a minimum.
Remember why you are on social media sites in the first place and take the same strategies you use to sharing helpful content to how you share pictures too.
You Want To Be Me
Did you think, “man that JP and his beard is so sexy, I must grow one too?” (well, hopefully for men only) lol
Did you think, “man that JP’s beard is so cool, I must have one for my kid”.
Did you think, “man that JP has one hell of a warm looking beard?”
Well it is your lucky day!
Just in time for Halloween and Fall, I bring to you this piece of awesomeness.
Now that is PERFECT!
Thanks to Laine @fromABroad for sharing this with me.
