A plea to anyone in the social media space:

It's not the interface that is good or bad - it's the way users interact and behave. Our basic philosophy is that everyone communicates and shares their information openly and honestly! Only in this way will new techniques and possibilities help us further and help in the long term.

The same basic requirements should apply on the Internet as in "real life": honesty, sincerity and trustworthiness!

What are basics for a successful social media campaign?

No matter how fast the world is spinning - anyone who has a long-term success who wants to have, should pay attention to some basic factors:

Think in a team & creatively

Only those who recognize and satisfy the interests of the target group will be followed in the long term. If you communicate topics that your target group does not want to hear, it becomes problematic. If you communicate topics that are already known, get creative - often a new method of presentation is effective.

Listen to your target group - they are part of your team!

Social means with each other - not me or you! Become a team player!

Trust / Honesty & Sincerity

Especially in social media, honesty and trust is one of the foundations of long-term success. Individual surfaces are always working stronger to identify fakes and unreliable people. Therefore, honesty and sincerity are the basic virtues so that you generate followers who have confidence in your judgment.

Openness & sympathy

Be open to new ideas and ways of thinking. Have sympathy for what you do - and also for the users of the respective interface. If you are reluctant to use a certain medium yourself, then you should think about handing over the management of the channel to experienced hands.

Social media means work

Even if it doesn't always look like it - it means work. Therefore, you should be aware that you need to allocate appropriate resources. You also need to be patient. Success doesn't present itself with one or two posts - it only comes over time. It's just like real life: It takes time for you to build a good reputation.
