Speaker 1:

Okay, so today we're diving in to the wild world of cringe-worthy social media because there's a lot of really cringy, there's a lot of really cringy advice out there, stuff that's really not helpful, really bad advice And we don't want to lead people down the wrong path. Right, because we're honest, awesome coaches at the No Excuses coaching podcast. So we've put together a list of the most ridiculous, misguided and bad pieces of social media advice we've ever come across And we're going to talk about it today. What do you think about that, ryan?

Speaker 2:

I think that before we started recording, you were like I wrote an intro for this episode. Was that the intro?

Speaker 1:

Yeah, that was the intro I paraphrased, because I don't really like the intros, like the ones that are like too intro-y.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, so you paraphrased your own intro that you wrote like on the fly.

Speaker 1:

No, I wrote it using chat GPT. But they're like, welcome to our podcast.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, so good so far. Welcome everybody to our podcast.

Speaker 1:

Where we help coaches and entrepreneurs kick butt and take names in their business.

Speaker 2:

Oh, I don't like that. I don't like that. I do not care for cliches.

Speaker 1:

I don't care for that, so I started with. Today. We're diving into the wild world of social media and calling out the 10 worst pieces of advice we've ever heard for coaches trying to grow their business organically. There we go.

Speaker 2:

All right, it's the 10 deadly sins of social media coach marketing.

Speaker 1:

Yes, it is. The social media sins.

Speaker 2:

Social media sins And you know what happens if you commit too many sins. Alana Banks.

Speaker 1:

Yes, I do.

Speaker 2:

You go to social media coach hell.

Speaker 1:

I do not want to go there.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, okay. So, coaches, how do we avoid social media? hell, do not commit the grievous sins that we are going to outline today.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, okay, cool, got it. Okay, should we tell them what they are?

Speaker 1:

No.

Speaker 2:

No, we should just turn off.

Speaker 1:

We'll just turn it off, and then you can email us and tell us what you think they are, and then Okay, number one it says here just post as much as possible, even if it's not high quality content.

Speaker 2:

Dun, dun dun.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, this is terrible advice.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

However, I think I like this a little bit. It requires context.

Speaker 2:

What's the context that it requires?

Speaker 1:

Well, the context is you do want to post as much as possible because that's going to help you gain more visibility and it's going to help you get more engagement and more followers. However, the thing that's not so great about this is, even if it's not high quality content. it doesn't need to be high quality in that it's taking you hours to create content, but you do want to have an objective, you want to have core messages, you want to have something that you're speaking to, something that you're focused on. Then you can create as much content as you want. in my opinion.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, i mean this one's telling you not to put quantity over quality. Here's the thing A lot of people will tip the scale too far the other direction and they'll be a perfectionist when it comes to posting content, which ultimately means they post not nearly enough content. The answer, folks, is balance. Yeah, don't post garbage, but also you don't need to post absolute, 100,000% polished perfection. You want balance. You want a consistent flow of good quality, relevant content, and that's the name of the game.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, So post a lot, but make sure that it's good, good.

Speaker 2:

Here's the one thing.

Speaker 1:

This is an example. Okay, so recently I did an experiment where I posted three pieces of content today, and I didn't want it to be too cumbersome, i didn't want it to be taking up all of my time, because I have other things that I'm doing. I was able to post three pieces of content. I didn't spend a lot of time on it, but because I knew exactly what I wanted to talk about, it was easy for me to create the content And I used chat GPT to help me cut down time And, as a result, i got so much more exposure. My exposure, my engagement, everything increased by 100%. So it's worth it. So it's not like a what do they call it? Spray and pray, something like that.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Right. So don't just be putting out all this content grasping at straws, right? Have a plan, know what you're talking about, know what your focus is and create mediocre content that you can put out a few times a day.

Speaker 2:

I don't think mediocre is the correct word. Mediocre means bad.

Speaker 1:

Does it, it's like medium. Yeah, mediocre is medium.

Speaker 2:

No, mediocre is not medium. Mediocre has a negative connotation.

Speaker 1:

Okay, although I can see why you would think.

Speaker 2:

Or maybe I'm wrong. I don't know. Maybe different people have different perceptions. No, you want just decent content, and even that might sound a little weird, but think about a meaningful conversation that you've had with a friend over coffee, where you both thoroughly enjoyed it. Did you study for hours to have the perfect thing to say when you arrived for coffee, or did you just show up as you were and talk about stuff that you knew because it's your wheelhouse, right? That's the sort of attitude we want to come to daily content with.

Speaker 1:

I like it.

Speaker 2:

All right, enough of that one.

Speaker 1:

Number two Number two Number next. Buy followers to boost your numbers quickly.

Speaker 2:

Parable advice.

Speaker 1:

Parable. Do not do this. Do not buy followers. That's just going to damage your reputation. It's going to damage your engagement. It's going to damage your relationship with Instagram.

Speaker 2:

I think a lot of people hear this and they say, oh, they hear us saying it's going to damage your relationship with Instagram and it's going to damage your reputation, and they make the mistake of thinking we mean this from a moral or ethical light, which that is the case, but that's not the real problem. The real problem is not that, like, people are going to figure out that you bought followers or you know you're going to get bad Instagram karma, although both of those are possibilities. The real problem is, when you buy followers, it messes up your follower to engagement ratio, which is a real thing and, as mysterious as the so-called algorithm is, everybody knows. Everybody who knows social media knows this is a real thing. If you have a lot of followers and you have little engagement or inconsistent engagement, which is the direct result of buying followers, the algorithm, the platform, can't help but assume that your content is not good because you have lots of followers but you're not getting engagement. Therefore, it will push your content to less people, and this is a huge pitfall. People don't realize this when they buy followers. And then somebody might say well, you can also buy fake engagement to go along with your fake followers, and there's just really there's one pitfall after another that equals it's never going to work in your favor to buy fake followers or fake engagement. It's just not So as much as I think it is dishonest to buy fake followers, that's not why I'm telling people not to do it. I'm telling you because not only is it going to waste your money, it's going to put you ultimately in a worse position than if you didn't do it.

Speaker 1:

Totally.

Speaker 2:

Boom.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, don't do it.

Speaker 2:

Don't do it.

Speaker 1:

Number three don't worry about engagement, just focus on getting more followers. So this kind of should have been lumped into number two, but No, this one's a little different. It's a little different. Yeah, like you don't want, I would rather see an account that has like 400 followers and lots of engagement on every post than an account that has like 5,000 followers, than like one or two bits of engagement on every post. That's gonna be. That's more engaging. Probably you're making money. Probably you're getting building more of a community in that first scenario where you have less followers but more engagement.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and good engagement is more likely to lead to sales than lots of followers. I teach about this in the social media training that I do. There's a difference between content that gets wide attention and content that gets deep attention, and really, ultimately, you want to mix of both, because you do want to be growing your follower account, but you also want to be deepening your rapport and your connection with the people who are following you. So focusing exclusively on one or the other is, again, not the thing to do. We want to find balance between the two goals.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, like I think, isn't there a book about how you only need, is it 100 friends, or something like that?

Speaker 2:

Yeah, there is a book, a sales book. It's called your golden 100 or platinum 100 or special 100. You know I haven't read it, but I'm aware of it. I heard a summary of it And yeah, the principle is when you have like 100 true fans, like people are really into what you do and their boî entitled and where they are and what they do. So there are those representations which give youacks of yourself and pulls you into that connection And that is just one that means yeah like, i think, a lot of perspective] in our sc. I also think we're tomato. But number next, number four, copy the content of other successful coaches in your niche. There's some bad advice.

Speaker 1:

Don't copy model.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and some people listening might say, oh, that's the same thing, copy, model. And I would say then you don't understand the words copy and model. There's tremendously different things. Right To copy someone let's say a musician copying a musician, you're stealing their lyrics and their melodies and you're just saying it's your own right. But if I hear a country star on the radio and I say I'd love to learn how to do country music and then I go and write my own songs and my own melodies and my own lyrics, that's modeling. So a huge difference, right? So, yeah, look at what the six, look at what the coaches who you admire and are successful online are doing and model it. Model it, don't copy it, but model it. And I emphasize admire, because there's a lot of successful coaches out there and a lot of them are going to be putting out content or have business strategies that you don't like and that you don't feel good about. Yeah, so don't model them. Model the ones who are living a life and functioning in a way that you like and who are successful.

Speaker 1:

Totally Yeah we got that one Number five is use clickbait headlines to get more clicks and views.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, yeah, don't do that. That's an interesting one.

Speaker 1:

It is interesting because there's one way that you can do it that I think is actually really good advice, and then there's one way that's not so good. The one way that's not good is by using clickbait. So stuff that information to get people's attention, but regarding something that is not relevant to your niche or something that maybe you don't believe in. but obviously you want to have a hook that is going to grab people's attention but that is relevant to your audience, to your community, to what you coach about, what you believe in, what your core message is, what your niche is. So you want a hook that's appealing and that gets people to click, but you don't want it to be clickbait. Yeah.

Speaker 2:

So I think the difference is a hook, which is how all content should start, is something that hooks attention versus clickbait. If we're going to use the term clickbait, it's probably not going to follow through on the benefit or the reveal that is suggested by the opening line or by the hook. If you say ah how to make a million dollars in 30 seconds with chat, gpt, no experience needed. If that's your hook, your content better deliver the explanation of how that is possible and how a regular person can do it. If somebody clicks on that and it's like, oh well, this will only work if you're Bill Gates and like that, then people are going to be disappointed and ultimately it's going to damage your rapport. So a hook can be highly intriguing and highly interesting. Just make sure the content follows through on what the hook promises, because if it doesn't, then it's clickbait, it's going to damage rapport. People are not going to like that.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, totally All right. Number six don't bother with SEO. It's not important for social media and SEO is search engine optimization. If you're not aware of that I know you are Ryan, but the listeners might not be It is important, actually, because it didn't. It wasn't important at one point, but now it is important because Instagram or the web, I think now actually crawls your content for keywords, specific keywords that are related to your niche.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, for sure, you want to keep the content you're producing on point, on subject, because, whether it's search engine crawlers or the platform itself, these systems are paying attention to what content you're producing, and the more optimized your content is for your niche, the more your content is going to get pushed to your niche. So, just basic principles of content optimization Use the jargon that your industry uses beyond point, beyond subject, beyond target, as much as possible. And, yeah, I mean. and, by the way, one of the largest search engines in the world is YouTube, which is a social media platform. right, more people are searching for answers to their questions on YouTube than on some traditional search engines these days. So, yeah, seo, basic search engine optimization, always, first of all, takes no longer to do that. This is one of those things. takes no longer to do it than to not do it, and not only does it not hurt, it helps.

Speaker 1:

So yeah, good Cool, i like it.

Speaker 2:

Let's go on to number seven. Automate all your social media posts so you don't have to spend time on it. That's an interesting one.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, i mean, i don't like this one. I think this is terrible advice because and I think we've talked about this before When you're in your business, you want to automate all the like other stuff. When it comes to creating community, having conversations with potential clients, that stuff you want to keep close to your chest. That's the stuff that you want to have the most time to do, because when you start automating it, you become removed from, like, what's going on in your business. So I would say automate other things in your life that are taking you away from your business and spend the time writing your social media posts, engaging with the community, like talking to people in your direct messages, posting your content. Also, i don't know if this is true, but I have heard in the past that when you automate like if you use an app to automate your social media content, like Instagram knows that you're doing that and what happens when you're automating, you're not on the app, right? So when the caption goes up or whatever the real or the post goes up, you're not there to be engaging. If people are commenting right away, and that's called like posting and ghosting. So you don't want to do that right Like, you want to be on the app posting the content and then, from what I've heard also, you want to spend like 10 minutes on the app after you've posted to show that you're active, like you're an actual human being who's using the app and engaging, and then that way, if people comment, then you can reply to the comment right away, because that also helps boost your visibility.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, Yeah, I think some degree of automation is okay on social media. but there's two things that you don't want to be on social media, particularly as a coach, And I've talked about this before. you do not want to be the unreachable celebrity who just posts and ignores everyone, doesn't answer comments, doesn't engage with people, doesn't follow back, etc. Bad idea if you're a coach or in a personal service capacity. And the other thing you don't want to be is a robot. You don't want to have a totally mechanical presence online because, even if people don't know, it's automation, posting your content unconsciously, subconsciously, your engagement feels different. And also, we haven't even gotten specifically into automated engagement because this post is talking about hosting specifically. but there's this whole kind of seedy underbelly of having bots do your engagement for you and having bots go around and like people's posts and post these horrible generic comments on people's posts. Oh man, don't do that. Don't do that. I mean, maybe it'll work in the short term, but I can spot a bot posted comment on my content from a mile away And it damages rapport really rapidly, in my opinion. When I see somebody's account has had a bot comment on their behalf on my content, it's almost like an insult, Like I don't take it personally by any means, but it certainly doesn't work in their favor. So, that type of automation, which is not automated posting. That's automated engagement, which is a different thing. It's actually against most user agreements for most social media platforms, which is why I say it's seedy. I would avoid that, ladies and gents.

Speaker 1:

Same thing with the DMs too. Right Like the automated direct messages.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

I hate those. Okay, number eight. This is when I wish that the podcast could be more interactive. It can be.

Speaker 2:

We're both reachable. We're not unreachable celebrities.

Speaker 1:

Exactly, Totally. We're very reachable. Very reachable Because I feel like this is like a point where I'd be like does anyone have any questions?

Speaker 2:

Okay, so we do a live recording someday That would be fun. A live studio audience Ooh, i like that, and applause and stuff Cool.

Speaker 1:

Okay, number eight Don't respond to comments or messages. It's a waste of time. Like who gives this advice? Definitely not a waste of time. If people are commenting and messaging you, they're taking time out of their busy life and schedule to show appreciation, show love, ask a question, and so that deserves a response.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Right, because they're taking the time to message you about whatever it is you've put out there into the world. Yeah, I would agree It's probably not a waste of time.

Speaker 2:

I would agree And you know every now and then. You know how in like Instagram. If you like somebody's story, like with one of those reactions in their actual story, it sends them a DM of it.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

So, like every now and then, or like even if you comment on somebody's story, at the bottom of their story it sends it to them as a DM. And so every now and then I'll like, you know, send a reaction or send a little compliment, or you know, or make some comment in response to somebody's story, and then I'll think of like something else that I want to add and I'll like go into the messages to like send a follow-up message. And every now and then this doesn't happen often, but every now and then I'll look at like the history And it's like somebody who I've been following, and we've been following each other for months or years in many cases, and I can see like I sent them all these little compliments and messages and answers, their questions that they've asked in their stories, and they haven't replied to any of them, they haven't hearted any of them, and I can see it says they're seen. And when I see that first, like first as a social media coach and somebody who does well in business, i'm just like why? Why, if somebody shows genuine interest and engagement in your content that you're spending time and energy to produce, would you not respond to that, at least by acknowledging it?

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

And then I'm like well, i probably am not going to waste my time engaging with this person ever again.

Speaker 1:

Right.

Speaker 2:

And if they happen to offer a service that I'm in need of at that time and at that point in time or in the future, there's certainly no longer somebody who I'd be willing to invest in. And that's my personal values. And some people might be listening to this and say, oh, you're overly critical or sensitive, ryan. you're upset because they're ignoring you. It's really not that. It's just that I only want to do business with people who are engaging with others to the standard that I hold for myself, and my followers.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, you want it to be a mutual exchange.

Speaker 2:

Some people send me comments and messages. I acknowledge them and I respond because I think that's the right thing to do. I kind of think of it like imagine you're at a cocktail party and there's all kinds of people mingling and you're having these little 30 second or five minute conversations with people here and there, And you walk up to somebody and you say, hey, I heard that speech that you did earlier, that toast that you did. It was really cool And I loved that story that you told. And they just look at you in the eyes You can tell they've heard what you said And, emotionless, they just turn around and walk away without saying anything whatsoever. That's what it's like when people send you a compliment or an engagement on social media and they know you've seen it and you've not replied. You're basically doing that in a virtual format.

Speaker 1:

True, yeah, and it's easy, right. That's a great example, because I don't know many people who would actually do that In a live setting. I'm sure there are, it would be very weird, but for some reason, when you're online it's different. Some people think that they can just do that and that's okay.

Speaker 2:

Well certainly That's their right, but they're leaving money on the table and potential sales and turning away people who might have turned into clients.

Speaker 1:

Exactly, yeah, and you have to realize that you're posting content ultimately to probably make a sale. So that could have been the beginning of a sale, right?

Speaker 2:

Yeah, And a lot of times I know I've said this before in other episodes before people make an inquiry about your services, they'll test the water by sending you a DM about something totally unrelated. And guess what, If you ignore them or you send them a really lazy response, that inquiry that was coming about your paid services is no longer coming.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, exactly. And also it could have taken them a lot of courage to even send you that DM. You don't know what was going on for them before they sent the DM. Maybe they've been watching your content secretly and wanted to reach out, but had nerves about reaching out. or they don't know anything about coaching And then they finally got the nerve to message you. and then you just ghost them on the message.

Speaker 2:

So don't do that.

Speaker 1:

Cool Number nine. don't worry about your brand image. Just post whatever you feel like.

Speaker 2:

Hmm, this is an interesting one.

Speaker 1:

Hmm, thoughts. Well, yeah, my thought is you do need to worry about your brand image, especially if you're selling a service, because the way you are representing yourself online, the way you show up online, is a reflection of you as a coach, who you are, how you work, what it might be like working with you And just posting whatever you feel like too is, you know, if you're selling a service, it's important to be on brand Like. You don't have to be super tight and have, like a polished Instagram feed or you know something that looks perfect, but it needs to have. It needs to send a message, like one message, and if you're kind of all over the place, just posting whatever you feel like, then that's confusing for the people who are following you, because they don't really know, like, what you offer, they don't know what you represent, they don't really know what your message is.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, yeah. I mean, when I hear this one, don't worry about your brand image, just post whatever you feel like. To me, what comes to mind is like polarizing content or like polarizing opinions, which are fine as long as your niche is on board with that, certainly. You know, i believe firmly in free speech. Talk about whatever you want, just be aware that, like your polarizing opinions might alienate some people and you have to be okay with alienating potential clients in some cases. If you are going to do that, the other thing is that I actually would avoid regardless, even again, affirming my belief in free speech. Is any language around being at effect? And so for those of you that are in the coaching industry, if you don't yet understand the principle of being at cause versus at effect, sometimes I'll see coaches and service providers and people who purport to be a leader of others, using language or messaging or telling stories that puts them clearly at effect, which is going to be a. I would say it would be a client repeller And it would be a client repeller, except that those people will still attract clients who are less than ideal, people who are not ready to change. So if you're unfamiliar with at cause versus at effect states of mind, probably it's a little too much for us to get into today, But research it I would say that's the homework for the audience. Yeah, any type of at effect language is going to turn away dream clients and draw in clients who are not yet ready for coaching. And if you ever had somebody invest in coaching and only to find out that they're really not ready for coaching? that's not the type of experience the coach wants and it's not helpful for the client either.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, yeah. I think the bottom line for this one is just be mindful of what you're posting. You know, ask yourself does my audience need to hear this? And if it's something that you really want to post, how can you approach it from a positive, empowering way?

Speaker 2:

Yeah, cool, and number 10, and I don't know if these, like these, are not in a particular order. This is just 10 sins. It's not like 10 is the worst thing you could possibly do in coaching social media, but it's number 10 nonetheless, Yeah, it made the list, So it's worthy of a mention, you know. It's worthy. Do you want to read it? Sure.

Speaker 1:

I can read it.

Speaker 2:

You read the first half and I'll read the second half.

Speaker 1:

Okay.

Speaker 2:

No, you read the whole thing.

Speaker 1:

Don't bother with analytics, just keep posting and hope for the best.

Speaker 2:

Bad idea, bad news, such a bad idea.

Speaker 1:

Even if you're not a numbers person, you know. just pay attention to how are people responding to your content?

Speaker 2:

And the word analytics is kind of a big word, don't be put off by that. It just means paying attention If you post something at, tons of people like it and share it and comment on it, versus if you post something and everybody ignores it. Well, just post less of what everybody ignored and post more of what everybody loves and comments on and shares, right, just pay attention to that kind of stuff.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Easy, easy.

Speaker 1:

And then, if you really are into analytics, you can go deeper into your insights and analyze those too.

Speaker 2:

Absolutely.

Speaker 1:

All right. Well, those are the sins.

Speaker 2:

Those are the 10 sins.

Speaker 1:

I wonder if any of our listeners are sinning.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, should they confess their sins to us? A direct message on Instagram for a thousand Atlanta banks bonus points.

Speaker 1:

I imagine that some people are doing some of these things. Yeah, that's okay, yeah.

Speaker 2:

I mean, hey, folks don't worry, just stop it. If you've heard some of these points and this is stuff that you're guilty of, don't worry about it, it's easy to fix. Everything here is easy to fix.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Easy and fast and fun.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, all right, so that's it for this week. If you want to follow us, i would love for more people to follow us on Instagram. at it's the No Excuses coaching podcast. No, it's. at it's the No Excuses podcast on Instagram.

Speaker 2:

Maybe that's the problem We keep giving them the wrong Instagram account. There's some weird other podcast that has millions of followers, thanks to us. Well, i mean, we haven't really been posting that much on the Instagram account, so But you do a really good job with the reels and stuff that you post on the Thank you on our podcast Instagram. Yeah, yeah, it is pretty great.

Speaker 1:

But we need. It would just be nice if we had more people following us and engaging with the content you know. So follow us and send us a message.

Speaker 2:

If you're sinning, I'd love to hear, or if not, yeah. Either way, you don't have to be sinning to send us a message and say hello.

Speaker 1:

Or maybe you heard all these and you're like I'm not doing any of those. I'm amazing at social media and that's awesome too.

Speaker 2:

There you go. Yeah, let us know about that. We'll start.

Speaker 1:

Yeah Cool.

Speaker 2:

All right. So I'm at Ryan Montes NLP on Instagram. My social, simple, social sanctuary community is open now and accepting new members. We got 67 people in there already And this is where I teach people all my insider secrets about attracting clients on social media and doing it without going crazy working your butt off. The line of X is one of the members actually in the sanctuary.

Speaker 1:

So it's a great community.

Speaker 2:

It's great, yeah, and people are very happy with what they've discovered inside the sanctuary. It's part of the low price, very high value revolution that I am a part of these days. So come check it out. Ryanmontescom, slash simple social or send me a DM. I'll tell you all about it.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, and I'll add even if you think that you're like a social media rock star and you're like, oh, i don't need that type of support, join it, because it's high value. It's a community of people that are like minded and interested in this, in similar things, and you're going to learn something, no matter what. Even if you think you're a social media rock star and you're doing everything right, there's something to be learned for everyone in that community, whether you're a beginner or super seasoned. Join, because you know, i would consider myself seasoned and I'm still learning stuff, you know, and it's nice to bounce ideas off of people And you know. The other part of the membership is you have like a more engaged membership where there's like coaching call every week and like a community to join. So yeah, It's.

Speaker 2:

somebody messaged me. one of my students from a few years ago messaged me and she said she saw the information page for the sanctuary and she was like, wow, that is a no brainer offer if I've ever seen one And if you've heard this term before no brainer. Basically, what it means is it makes more sense to invest in the offer than to not because of the value to price. Yeah, yeah.

Speaker 1:

So check it out And you know, like I don't know what your plans are, but I assume that at some point the price is going to go up. So you know, get in at the founding members rate.

Speaker 2:

Get in at the founding members rate while I'm accepting members.

Speaker 1:
