YES, we said that you shouldn’t focus too much on promoting your own products and services...
BUT... one way that you can promote yourself and get away with it is by offering discounts and money off.
Surveys show that this is something that most social media users actually appreciate (rather than seeing as a nuisance) and as such, you can usually get away with it! When you try and attract more people to your social media account, you should make it clear that you will be providing offers. This way, people won’t be annoyed or frustrated when you occasionally mention that there’s a 10% money off deal and better yet, it means that everyone following you will be potentially open to your offers. That’s a very targeted audience right there!
Oh and another thing: remember to use the VIP approach when mentioning your offers. Remember, these are exclusive and exciting offers that they can’t get anywhere else. . These are completely unique and they are being offered them because they are part of your movement. This can make your audience feel special again, which will increase their likelihood of wanting to take advantage of their good fortune by making an order!
