It is amazing to me how companies want to succeed with social media, yet go years without posting. I was on the Twitter page of the well-known Boston marketing company. I saw they had a tweet about a July event. Great, they are current. Then I realized it was July 2010! What an absolute turn off. I would guess that anybody that came to their Twitter page, will not return. And I’m sure they will not go on to visit their website. (Which by the way is not up-to-date either).
Look, you don’t have to post every single day to your Twitter, Facebook, and other social media pages. But, if you don’t have the time to post ever, then take them down. I know, you’re shocked to hear me advise taking down your social media pages, right? But, you are better off not having someone come to page which will totally turn them off, and make sure they never use your services or buy your products.
