TIME-STAMPED SHOW NOTES:
- [00:27] Today’s Topic: What You Ought to Do When a Social Network Stops Driving You Traffic
- [00:40] Neil has close to a million Facebook followers. When he had a few hundred thousand, he spent $400,000 on Facebook ads to gain a “shitload” of new followers.
- [01:10] Neil thinks of Facebook like a well. You want to have your own well, so you can keep getting water without spending money.
- [01:40] Neil’s strategy worked for a very long time, then Facebook changed their algorithm.
- [02:55] Twitter was better in the past, but overall the user growth hasn’t been great lately.
- [03:16] If you are able to build your own email list, you control that at the end of the day.
- [03:40] The cool part about Google is that they have learned not to penalize links, they just don’t count bad ones.
- [04:15] The possibilities are endless and you should leverage more than just one channel.
- [04:44] Eric went from 4000 Twitter followers to 10,000, but traffic coming to his site has gone down.
- [05:07] Just because you are on these channels and your follower count is growing, doesn’t mean that you are going to do well.
