Two birds with one stone, right? But that's where you'd be wrong.
Here are some quick reasons why:
- Consider your audience: Links from Facebook to Twitter are annoying to your friends and fans
- Make some effort: You look too lazy to take the time to post a tweet
- Readers keep scrolling: People simply don't engage with auto-posts and you are less likely to engage with those rare few who do
When it comes to social marketing, Facebook and Twitter are very different platforms. While you may share some similar users, keep your audience in mind. What works for one social media site, might not work for the other and you could risk alienating your readers.
When you take the time to craft a tweet (hashtags and all) you look like someone who cares about their online presence (and in turn their followers and fans) and that speaks volumes. Don't you want to be seen as passionate and thoughtful?
Most importantly, people will scroll past these auto-posted tweets and status updates. Engaging with the public is what social media marketing is all about. Don't lose out on this great opportunity to connect.
