I agree with everything on here and already new the truth but it's still not easy to hear. You want to believe that five years on your FB Business with great product is enough but it simply isn't. In order to get a "Like" you must follow with your personal page but it's also reality the moment someone "Likes" your page to get a Like of their own they simply block you from their NewsFeed so they do not have to see your content. It would be a perfect world if FB would allow true Likes as in, Business to Busness or Customer to Business in order to see what your real audience is. I am all about relationships, not numbers. I would love to wipe my 1668 follower slate clean and rebuild in order to engage in a more intimate way. I am one of those "let me know if I can ever do anything for you" type of person. I do have an online store with amazing customer feedback and most every time I take care of someone their comment to me is, "thank you for great customer service and all the little special things you added to my package." I believe in making every customer feel special so why is my Twitter, FB and Pinterest Feed not paying off? I am dying to interact with REAL people!!! Are they out there?
I agree! For 5 years now I have gained, lost and even deleted some Followers on my Business FB page. I stll have 1,668 follwers and very little feedback/communication on my site. I have great product with an online store presence but still cannot seem to gather "real" followers that are truly interested in having dialogue. I am not about numbers I am about relationship but so many other Business pages will come over promising to follow me if I follow them. I am guessing that either they do not realize their follow doesn't necessarily gain them business and it certainly won't gain me business if there is simply no interest in each others product. Then again it's so easy to Like 100 pages only to block them from your personal NewsFeed which must be used to gain numbers. I am a humorous person, caring and genuine with everone I connect with. I always go above and beyond in my business, my online store Feedback proves this. I have been using Twitter for about the same amount of time and bounce between 525-545 followers. Not sure at this point what more I can do. My Pinterst Boards have well over 4000 followers & my product is being seen there. Of course I could use more sales but I am dieing for more interaction!!!! I'm a people person in a technology filled world! A head count on FB is impossible since no one will see your posts asking if they are interested in staying connected if they have blocked you.
