The most overused words on social media

The most overused words on social media

Reading through my twitter feed, I suddenly became aware of the repetitious status updates. I am ashamed to admit I’m guilty of it myself! What are these words….?

They are ‘lovely’and ‘great’ along the lines of:

“Had a lovely afternoon doing XYZ”

“Thanks for a lovely XYZ”

“What a great start to the day”

“Had a great meeting with … “

The space in itself is significant, and when you add in the cost of building a stand, creating props, marketing materials, handouts and displays, and having staff to man it for days at a time it’s a considerable investment. So it’s really important to consider “What’s your purpose in exhibiting?” Have […]
