Social media marketing is a difficult job. It’s difficult when you’re dealing with Movies. Movies have a specific shelf life and the campaigns are planned keeping in mind the short duration. It’s challenging to plan the strategies, manage content, target audiences, create sales funnels and all that. But it’s particularly difficult when you have to keep up with all the messages you receive in the Page Inbox. Here are couple of absurd, innocent and some downright funny messages I receive running Facebook Pages for brands/products I manage.
When we’re asked to share links to the Page
Or asked to share photos on the Page
When we get job proposals
Or when we get marriage proposal
Or a business proposal
Investors who want to trade in with a song
Or when somebody casually flirts with emojis
People pitch their ideas to the next summer blockbusters here (or push their secret agendas here)
And also help us by creating trailers in Windows Movie Maker
When clicking the Like button isn’t enough and has to be reinforced by messaging
Overly enthusiastic folks
People who are willing to fly 15,000 miles to watch the sequel we’ve never made.
And finally, those people who correct our grammar
So much for social media. Cheers!
