Increase Traffic Using Social Media

Make Social Media Sharing Simple

If you have a blog or website should provide a simple means of sharing your content. This means adding social media sharing buttons and plug-ins to all of your web properties, guaranteeing it is simple and quick for your readers to spread the word when they find a post of benefit or interest.

Fill Out Your Profiles Completely

This may seem like common sense. However, many online business owners and entrepreneurs have incomplete social media profiles. Wherever you have the chance, tell people about yourself and your business, providing plenty of links back to your website or blog. Look in the profile or other setting section of the social site to go into more detail of who, what, when, where, etc. People do look at it if they are interested. Take your business seriously.

Run a Contest or Giveaway

KingSumo is one of many companies that will help you create and manage a successful giveaway or contest on social media websites. This single traffic driving strategy can result in significantly higher numbers of visitors to your site. Polls can sometimes help in a similar fashion.

Be Creative And Share Again The Same Message/Article/Other Content!

Just because you share a blog post or new piece of content on Facebook doesn’t mean you can’t share it again later. Your prospects and followers on social media are not always logged in at the same time. This means that your content should be shared on all of the social media websites multiple times. Do it in such a way that it does not look exactly the same on your social media timeline. You can use a different picture, text only, and be sure to add other business related posts in between your duplicate posts. I have visited pages where the same post shows up 5 times in a row and it does not look good. Tends to make me think the poster is not creative and makes me not to want to do business with them.

Tricks Use Social Media

You can expand your number of business and/or social contacts by making connections through individuals. While social media in business has been around for a very long time, the potential of how to use social media in the Internet to promote such connections is only now being fully recognized and exploited. Many web-based groups established for that purpose.

Social Networking is an online experience which offers discussion groups, chat rooms, and news groups. This a great place where individuals share common space and common interests to share or promote ideas, experiences, and insights. People can talk and connect with others, as well as to make new friends or just have someone to talk with.

Facebook and Twitter provide two different social media marketing strategies. Facebook is more of a personal networking site as it promotes “reconnecting” with old high school, college, and former corporate friends and associates. You can also use Facebook to expand your networks to include business interests as well. Blogs are a form of social networking and are often linked through RSS (Really Simple Syndication) on Facebook pages so those within one’s personal network can view the blogposts on the home page of the Facebook user.

Twitter is not as personal as Facebook in my opinion. Twitter is a microblogging site that limits all single posts to a limit of 140 characters. Twitter allow users to build large networks of followers in a short period of time.

Following others and being followed is what makes Twitter work. You can just start following people or you can use Twitter’s Search to seek Tweets that with similar interests or ones who have specific interests or expertise you wish to get involved in.

Social Media Internet Marketing

The concept of sharing is vital to successful social media Internet marketing. The idea is that you present visitors with something that is so informative or amusing or useful that the person wants to pass the info along to someone else. If you tell two people, and they each tell two people, there are only 10 levels required to reach a thousand people, and from there the numbers start to get big pretty quickly. And people want to share. They share their favorite videos, their favorite pictures, they talk about which products work the best, and ask another for advice about new furniture. Your goal is to be a part of that conversation.

A few well placed social media Internet marketing campaigns can have a notable impact on site traffic. This is especially true with the use of video banners, and amusingly eye-catching link images. If you make someone laugh, they will want to pass on the joke to someone else, because laughter is contagious. With video, you have direct access to a viewer’s emotions, and that can be a valuable opportunity.

Social media Internet marketing depends on frequent participation in message forums, on blog sites, and in the various social network sites. Having a listing in LinkedIn is not helping your bottom line unless you are actively participating on the site so people know you are there. In fact, the whole point of social media Internet marketing is to make sure people know who you are, and what you have to offer. Social media simply allows you a broader range of options in how to reach the people you want to be in contact with.

Get Best From Social Media

Facilities are available for everyone to express themselves through Social Media, with either their own personal website, or a business promoting services and products. The main means of communication are Blog, Podcast or Video. An individual site can be controlled to only allow access to close friends or alternatively broadcast worldwide. A Blog is a continuous update, a podcast is a voice message and video speaks for itself. All three can be uploaded by following easy basic steps.

Social Media connects people as friends and discreetly creates familiarity, building new relationships, that also builds trust. On joining as a member of the site, one is encouraged to make up a profile of oneself, with a picture, education, current and past employment, age group etc. Connection with suggested friends can be accepted or declined. Gradually as the library of friends grows, suggestions of friends with similar interests are put forward which expands the network. People are interested in hearing about what their friends are doing and what they like or dislike. Holiday photos, sporting achievements or interests can all be uploaded for friends to share.

It has always been recognised in business, “The best form of advertising is word of mouth” Imagine, that statement and the connection to a listing of friends, at the touch of a button, to good or bad customer service for instance! The majority of people trust recommendations from friends, far more than an advertisement in a newspaper.

If you are an individual looking to earn money online and work from home, or a business that needs to generate more customers, it is vital that you embrace the Social Media phenomenon. People do not want to be sold to, they want to be treated as human beings, and to do that you must be credible and build relationships, that increases referrals and builds trust. People buy from people they like and trust.

The steps, to successful Social Media Marketing.

1. Connect with interested people
2. Offer useful information, and good content.
3. Keep an updated record of their contact details
4. Stay in touch, to keep them updated.
