The Time I Got Thrown In Facebook Jail. One Marketer Tells story…

Have you ever been forced to stop speaking to someone? Ever been told that you can not tell your story or help others around you, share a message that could possibly change someone’s life? If the answer is, NO – Then you are one of the more fortunate between the two of us.

The time I got thrown in Facebook Jail reminds me of being an adolescent and having my parents pick a select group of my peers that were suitable. Well, maybe not, but if you are following along, you can get a clearer picture of the story this way. Many of us all have various reasons for being on Facebook daily. Some of us actually look to Facebook as a vehicle to help generate the fuel to keep our dreams alive. More and more ones are looking to Facebook to make money. http://bit.ly/ThrowninFacebookJail

As an online marketer, you must be consistent as with all things it takes discipline. Despite what anyone tells you, making money online is not easy. It involves fierce dedication and daily practices. Making money on Facebook is no different. The time I got thrown in Facebook jail was basically Facebook’s way of giving me a warning to say “Slow Down Missy!” (Incidentally, My grandmother used to call me that as a child; Missy). The message was clear to me I could look at this situation in two different ways. First, it did not matter how strong my commitment levels were, doing the same thing over and over someone is bound to notice. As the saying goes, All Attention Isn’t Good! Everything must be done in moderation. What do I mean by that? At some point my strong objectives became offensive. In other words, Facebook deemed my service to excellence as “abusive”. Or second, with over 75 million users daily, Facebook has decided to just be mean.

Now, depending on how much you post on Facebook you might have noticed that they changed their algorithm yet again, they have been on a penalization spree for a couple of weeks now, setups that were working fine prior to the recent update (November 2015) stopped working and many accounts got penalized for 1 or 2 weeks. They are constantly tuning their algorithm but in our case, they are the powers-that-be, therefore, it is best advised that you stay in compliance. I have several articles that I will share with you in upcoming posts that will also explain how to keep your account(s) safe.

The time away from Facebook really gave me an opportunity to focus on the circumstance. I was overzealous; even though my click-thru rate was insurmountable, my message got lost in my approach. You never want to come across as “spammy” with so many attempts people just turn you off and never want to hear from you again. In my defense, I had found a new marketing tool that was simply awesome and I couldn’t wait to share it with all my industry friends on Facebook. Surely, I had something to simplify their lives. A tool that was going to help them stay organized and ahead of schedule. I had a way to deliver timely information to people and go full-throttle no matter the size of the audience. I had learned to automate my social media experience. Now, that’s not to say that there currently are no automation systems available. Nope, this wasn’t it. The exciting part is that as a Social Media Professional, I have had to use at least three different tools to keep up with all of my postings, metrics and platforms. Nothing beats the ability to have it all on one system. A total of six (6) platforms and one (1) automation system and I can post images, links, etc. This system is truly, Amazing! http://bit.ly/ThrowninFacebookJail

Overall, I was able to take this lesson to educate myself on the tolerances of Facebook (You really want to stay on their good side and be in strict compliance) and put my social-life on autopilot. I will still be seeing you around on Facebook, but the approach will mystify you and Facebook gurus won’t even be able to sense my presence, all while keeping my clients happy and being equally as effective. http://bit.ly/ThrowninFacebookJail

Thank you for reading my article. I hope that you were able to find the value. If you think that you or someone you know might benefit from using the same automation system for the six (6) major social channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Instagram, Google + and Instagram, please do not hesitate to connect with me directly via email or in the comment section of the post. http://bit.ly/ThrowninFacebookJail
