This Is Why You Are Not Making Sales On Social Media by Brooke60(f): 12:17pm On Jul 14, 2019
Many people come to me and complain about not making sales on Social Media despite the fact that they post almost every day. Even when you've found the perfect social media platform to engage your target audience, your marketing efforts may not be effective if none of them has heard of you before.

Below are some of the reasons you are not making sales:

1. Your Business is too *Salesy*: Visiting your page, what will I Find? Only your Products? Every time, come and buy. Did you put money in my account? Why can't I come to your page and be entertained, educated and informed while you are still selling your products? In short, your page must not be about your business alone.

2. No hashtag: Some online sellers don't make use of a hashtag, especially on Instagram. Using relevant, targeted hashtags on your posts and stories is still one of the best ways to get discovered by new audiences on Instagram. And this can translate into more engagement, more followers, and more customers for your business.

3. No Reviews: You need to post what people are saying about your business. It might be about fast delivery, about your customer service and even about the effectiveness of your products. Are you into fashion? Let people snap and send to you. Sometimes, you may have to tell your customer to say one or two things. Posting Reviews eliminates Scam from the mind of prospecting customers. They tend to trust you more and want to buy from you.

4. No Humanization: You need to humanize your business. Your business needs to feel what people are feeling. Is the Country sad about any event? Your business should also be sad (Post about it), is the country Happy? Your business must be happy. Did the country lose a match? Post about this. Is there an election? Pray for a successful one. Muslim Celebration? Celebrate your Muslim Customers. This should also be the same with all the public holidays in the calendar.

5. No Advert: This is so funny. Why won't you run sponsored ads? MTN, GLO, AIRTEL and even Banks are always running ads to stay in the face of their customers but you don't run ads for yours? How does it work? You should always have a monthly budget to run ads for your business. There are many competitors and you should always be ahead of them.

Nice tips. But, not explicit enough. You focused on the people who actually "sell" and not people who render services. I'm a photographer. @timagex photography. How do I entertain customers without making the page less professional? I need responses please...

Lol. Nigerian sellers don't want to invest. They don't brand. They don't do marketing. All that to them is money wasting. They use viva video for their business and phone apps for graphics. They are stingy and don't like paying professionals. That's why they often pack up in few months.
