The Top 3 Most Annoying Mistakes in Social Media for Dance Studios

This is day 71 in our 90-Day Social Media Success Challenge for Dance Studios, and it’s time for me to share with you the top 3 most annoying mistakes in social media for dance studios.

Today I will share with you annoying mistake number one.

#1  Incomplete Profile Info

This is by far one of the most annoying ones, since we’re all so used to being able to access information at the click of a button, without much effort.

Here’s the thing, when I find someone of interest online, through any of the social media outlets, the first thing I do is become their fan on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, subscribe to their YouTube page and RSS feed, possibly join their mailing list, and look for them on Linkedin.

Now, if let’s say, you’re a dance studio owner, and I connect with you on Facebook, and we become friends. The first thing I’m looking to do is, become a fan of your studio on Facebook, follow you on Twitter, and check out your YouTube page. But guess what, when I go to your profile page, I don’t see any links to any of the above social networks. Zero! None!

Instead of your social media page information, or at least your website, on that left-hand toolbar underneath your name and profile pic on Facebook, you have “Dance like no one is watching“, which is perfectly fine. But, how do I learn more about you? Granted, I could click on the “Info” tab on your Facebook page, and hopefully get that information from there, but probably not.

You get the point. Please take the time to fill out ALL of your information on your social media profile pages, personal and business. Make it easy for people to become a fan of your dance studio, follow you on Twitter, subscribe to your YouTube page, etc. That means there should be links that will take people directly to your social media pages. So make sure you start your web addresses of with http://, then the rest of the web address, so people are able to click on the link.

Remember, if one of the parents at your studio suggests that a friend, family-member, or co-worker become friends with you, let’s say, on Facebook, and they do. If you don’t have links to your social media pages (not just your studio website), you miss an opportunity.

The worst of these, in my opinion, is incomplete information on YouTube pages. That is super-annoying! Please fill out all of the sections there, including “About Me“, and again, have links to your website, Facebook, Twitter, and blog, if you have one.

This may sound unimportant to some of you, but believe me, it really makes a huge difference. So, go check your social media accounts now, and make sure that all of the necessary info is there. Hint: Linkedin actually tells you how complete your profile page is. If it doesn’t say “100 Percent Complete“, then you have some work to do.
