When the account dries up

I guess the account dried up from one innkeeper who has like 1000 tweets and more a day on all social media (from some paid service). All of a sudden it all stopped and abruptly. The tweets (I mentioned on another thread) were so impersonal, but I am sure the "expert" told him this is what was best for his business.

Part of the social media rampage, ahem, campaign, was to obv like and friend and connect with as many people as possible, everywhere. So you prob have this guy and his B&B on linkedin, google+ and more like I did. There was no way to avoid him, it seemed. 

Another lesson to be learned about those shock and awe social media campaigns. I am sure he doesn't think this way, but I do.

My guess is they had a subscription and decided not to pay for it any longer. And they either don't have access to the account to continue with their own tweets/uploads or they don't have a clue what to do next.

Those that posted LOTS of FB posts got the LIKE they requested (although I am still wondering what that actually does for you if it is a bunch of innkeepers around the world who are not likely to visit you - Linked in on FB) but I clicked the stop following very quickly. I have yet to get into the tweeting. Have an account, just don't do it. I do not feel I have anything interesting to say.

I feel the same about Twitter. I don't have enough to say to be on there. But, I have my FB page feed Twitter. So there are a couple of comments/day on Twitter from me. Some get retweeted (maybe 1/month) by some of the directories (local and national).

FB is apparently being abandoned in Europe by teens who don't want to be on a network with their parents. Teens are not my market. I'll stay on FB where the old people are hanging out. Eye-wink

Next up is G+. Still have to figure out how to get an account that I can link to a fan page. I'm not into G+ but I want a page for the inn on there. Which then means the whole 'finding friends' again.

So, when we retire? No social media except to see pix of the grandkids. I am the only social person in the house and you all know by now I'm not that social. For anyone for whom this comes naturally, it's really not that easy to be brilliant everyday!

Even with practice, which I have at this point, it's not an easy thing for me.

Maddie, I think the G+ 'friends' is unnecessary. Most of us have very few. It's kind of like blogging, you just do it and it doesn't matter if people follow you. The G+ posts and account will help your standing with google which is a good thing.

The only reason I G+ is because Google owns it, and somehow in the grand scheme of things I am hoping it helps somewhere...the same reason I use BLOGGER for the blog.

Yes I notice that since I created a G+ business page, when I search my inn name, my inn comes up filling the right side of the search results, giving photo of the place, map of the area, and buttons to get directions, read reviews, plus gives address, phone number, and the first few lines of my most recent G+ post.

It's definitely worth doing, and posting there whatever you post on FB or Twitter. Doesn't matter if anybody ever reads it. Google reads it, likes it, and rewards you for it!
