How to Quit Building Influence Through Social Media: A Beginner’s Guide

Table of Contents

Hey, plenty of people don’t build influence when it comes to Social Media. Who needs a guide on how to quit?

Well, if you’re going to quit building influence through Social Media, why waste time? Why spend more sleepless nights than necessary? This handy guide is a helpful public service.

On the other hand, if you want to build influence through Social Media, this guide will tell you what not to do.

It’s called a beginner’s guide, but don’t let that fool you. It will work, not just the first time you want to quit building influence through Social Media, but every time.

So here’s what to do—or NOT do. It’s your choice.

Whenever possible, put off posting on Social Media. Never do today what you can do next month (or never).

Don’t waste your time retweeting other people’s tweets or responding to those who retweet yours. Answering questions on your own Facebook fan page? Yawn.

If it looks like you’re about to post something interesting, tell yourself nobody wants to know what you have to share.

Don’t do boring things like keeping track of your Insights. Who cares about the virality of your posts and which types are the most popular with your audience? Just throw it out there and surely something will stick.

If by any chance you get injured, be sure to write extremely long posts all about how you’re feeling, complete with a list of medications and photos of the stitches. It’s all about you isn’t it?

Whatever you do, don’t learn about tools that will help you automate your tasks. You’d rather post only when you feel like it or have the time anyway, right?

Be sure to post about your product or service 90% of the time. Don’t share anything personal. For heaven’s sake, you don’t want people to LIKE you, do you?

Buy followers by the cartload. You’ll seem popular and who cares if they never engage with you? It’s all about looking good and making false impressions.

Always post the same old stuff. Don’t bother to find new quotes or intriguing photos or helpful information for your audience. They won’t notice and probably won’t find someone else to follow instead of you.

Make sure you don’t post more than once a week. You don’t want to show up in their feed too often, and this will ensure that nobody complains.

This is by no means a complete guide to all the easy ways you can quit building influence through your Social Media presence. We haven’t considered making excuses about being too busy or starting out so gung-ho that you burn out in two weeks. Not to mention having different branding on every Social Media platform. Nevertheless, this should be a nice start for you.
