Facebook Wants Your Advertising Money. It’s So Much More Than A Place To Chat With Friends.

DO YOU SEE ANYTHING WRONG WITH THIS PHOTO??? Of course not,it is 100% within Facebook standards for a models photo.

Facebook asked Me to remove this pic

Facebook asked Me to remove this pic

However I woke up to a notification from Facebook , threatening to remove this photo as My profile picture for My Bmore’s Hidden Jewel fan page. As a part time model who  regularly promotes other models I  found this  to be a real problem. There is  absolutely nothing indecent about this photo and if a model had sent it to me as a part of her submission, I would have gladly posted it.

facebook harrassment

I voluntarily removed the photo  because IT’S THEIR SITE and who needs the drama but take this 100% innocent picture and remember what I keep trying to tell you about having your  own website. FACEBOOK IS NOT A FRIEND TO THE AVERAGE HUSTLER TRYING TO COME UP. FACEBOOK IS NOT A PLATFORM TO JUST ADVERTISE YOUR STUFF AND MAKE NEW FRIENDS. IT IS A BUSINESS.

The only thing I can see that Facebook would  want me to remove the picture for, is the blatant  advertisement. The photos not only lists My website but a variety of social media sites you can find Me on.  The more it is  shared, the more free advertisement I am getting.

FACEBOOK makes too much money selling advertising on your timeline, selling your data to companies to let them know how to better market to you and draining the little man, like Me, to pay for advertising on the site. I’ve spent money on Facebook ads but I’m not going to break Myself throwing money to build a better following on THEIR site. I am always trying to pull people onto My own site because I understand how Facebook works.

Think you have a lot of followers and they can’t stop you? My personal Facebook  page has over 30,000 followers and at any time Facebook can place Me on a 1-30 day ban blocking My access to even inbox My fan base. Getting the Facebook followers to convert to real followers is the key. That is why having your own website is number one in the solo entrepreneur business. Even if you have nothing but a landing page with a subscription box it’s better than thinking you will always have access to the fan base you’ve built on Facebook or any social networking site.

Do not cheat yourself of the opportunity to build your fan base outside of social media, where no one can block your access to them. Having your own website is easier than you think. Though I warn against it, WIX is a free platform for hosting your website until you can afford to pay to have one built or build it yourself.If you don’t mind getting a little stressed but are good at crossword puzzles you may even want to build your own. Wordperss.org NOT com is where you would sign up to create your own website and hand craft it yourself. A third option, which many take, is to hire someone to build you a website. I do web design for small businesses by the way. I built and run My own websites and have for the last 10 years. If you’d like me to build you a website like this, feel free to contact me at sapphirethesexyone@gmail.com.

This threat to change My picture before they did, that’s small potatoes in My constant battle with Facebook. I immediately changed it and My cover photos, although it as well, was far from outside of Facebook standards. My motto is why rock the boat when I can easily post whatever I want on My own platofrm. While Facebook is not My only avenue of promotion, it is an important one. People spend more time on Facebook than any other social media site I know. I want to be able to promote there, even if the rules keep changing. Facebook rules are just guidelines I must stay within, knowing I have My own website to post whatever I want makes life a little easier.

Do you run a business on Facebook?
Have you paid for promotion via the social media site?
Has Facebook ever put you on ban,limiting your access to your fan base? How did you handle it?

Just Start Writing

                                                   Just Start Writing

So it’s no big secret that I love to write, I’ve been writing longer than I remember, blogging for almost 8 years and  writing for publications for two years  now. I love that  My pen gives Me a  way to express all the things tumbling around in My head and  I never get enough of the fact that people actually enjoy reading it,

It all started with  notebook after notebook full of journals, poetry and half finished stories I’ve started. Up until 2008 or so I had never even finished one of the stories or books I’d started. A short story for My website gained Me a little popularity and  caused Me to write more to appease the few who requested it.

Say It, Someone  Will Listen

                      Say It, Someone Will Listen

The next thing you know I took a  chance and  asked a guy starting  a  brand new magazine if I could write an erotic story for it and he  said sure. My first story published in print was “Facebook Fun” in 86 Blvd and  since then I have  written for each of the subsequent 10 issues and was recently given the honor of interviewing cover model Nyomi Banxxx for them.

My  regular byline in 86  Blvd  was the springboard  for Me  contacting other urban magazines and asking for a chance to write for them. To date My  writing has been featured in 27 issues of print publications and that includes My monthly column in BADD Magazine.  I get a thrill every time a  new magazine or website approaches Me to write for them but it also made Me realize it was time to work on My own project as well. I mean I  love creating content for others but we all know its much better to be on the receiving end of the residual income.

Write. Just Do It

                                                 Write. Just Do It

Yesterday morning I  got my lazy butt to the computer and said it’s time.  Honestly, I’m now a  month behind the deadline I scheduled last year. My first compilation of erotic stories were supposed to be ready by Valentine’s Day but I took a month to rest.  I went through My stories and picked the first twelve I’d like to publish in a book of short stories. I started formatting but it was getting overwhelming so I  took a break. Tomorrow I will be right back at it

During this time while I’m focusing  on My writing I’ve been checking out all types  of websites, writing groups etc that can benefit ANY writer, not just a writer of erotic stories. I’ve found  some great articles and websites. One of the websites I’ve fallen in love with is Writers Life. I won’t  bog this blog post down with links but I’ve linked some of the most recent articles I’ve read as well as a *FREE writers toolkit below.

*Writing A Book: Life After The First Draft

*Writing  Prompt Basics: Tips For New Writers

*FREE Writers Toolkit

I will be  sure to add this site to the resource area for writers I have here on this site at https://sapphirespotlightontalent.com/resource-guide/resources-for-poets-writers/
