As a business owner, it’s important to remember that your target market is most likely on a social media network. You should have a social networking profile for your business. Determine which sites your customers belong to, and incorporate them into your overall marketing stragey; if you don’t, you may be letting new customers and strong customer relationships slip away from you.
If you have a blog, make sure that you have (and if you don’t, add it) a “like” button on the top-right corner of your page. This lets people “like” you for Facebook. It is important that the button allows them to “like” your business without leaving the page they are on within your website. This makes it easy and more likely that your visitors will do this and you will see more traffic because of ity.
When you tweet, include a tag. Certain subscribers are updated if you use tags. Be smart with your tags and tag groups that are likely to be interested in your product or service.
Set up your site so customers can easily share material they find on there. Having a widget on your site gives followers a simple way to spread the word about your site. A widget will also let the visitors share your page directly from your site.
It’s important for you to truly engage in conversation with your social media followers. When a customer provides feedback, the door toward conversation has opened and many businesses fail to acknowledge this. Don’t just simply respond, have a conversation with your customers. You can serve them better, and improve your business’s performance, by cultivating a genuine interest in what your customers want and need.
You need more than a powerful broadcasting medium for social media success — you must also use excellence in creating your content. In practical terms, this means you need to make sure that even garden-variety landing pages are as effective as the product demonstration videos to which they link. If the content you present is great, and the rest of your profile is up to snuff, you will succeed in reaching your goals.
Make the headline interesting to get attention from your customers. Post a question people will want to read the answer to. Make use of attention-getting words like “ground-breaking” and “astounding”. Well written headlines will pique visitors interest and cause them to read the information.
Use links to tie together your various social media sites. Include links if you have a blog where your consumers can see you on Twitter, YouTube and also if they want to like you at Facebook. Just using your Twitter profile alone, you can link to multiple sites. If you put up a link for all of your sites this will create more exposure.
