Things to never do on social media: 

1. Automate your social media feed

2. Buy followers

What you can do instead: 

1. Schedule using a product like Buffer or Hootsuite

2. Run ads to up your followers (with detailed targeting)

2. Hootsuite

Other items we discussed:

1. If you want to grow your audience on a given social network, try using another social network for promotion.

2. Republishing can be a great way to break through a plateau. See SumoMe’s article on republishing content here, along with this spreadsheet full of publishers that accept articles for republication. All you have to do to access the spreadsheet is send out a tweet.

Be sure to tweet any questions you have to the guys on Twitter – just use the hashtag #AskCave
