Anti-Social Media – Alan Stevens’ Advice

From the weekly “must-read” newsletter produced by Alan Stevens The Media Coach.

ANTI-SOCIAL MEDIA

With all the attention paid to Social Media, there’s been little focus on its related discipline, anti-social media. Here are a few tips to make sure that you know how to use anti-social media for no gain and scant profit:

  1. Promote yourself relentlessly, at all times. Make sure that every message is a selling one, so that your friends and followers understand what you are really about
  2. Re-send messages from experts, to give the impression that you have the same thoughts. Occasionally “forget” to mention their name to reinforce this impression
  3. Try to get as many people to follow you as possible, but ignore them completely. They are just your potential customers, so they have nothing to offer you
  4. Cut and paste articles and pretend that you wrote them (or at least hint at it by making it hard to spot the name of the original author)
  5. Insult and abuse others, to damage their reputations and reduce their chance of getting work.
  6. Constantly promote money-making schemes that you don’t use yourself (because they don’t work)

There you go. If you follow these rules on a daily basis, your business will change dramatically, but not in the right direction. You may even end up with an ASMO (Anti-Social Media Order).
