People are clamoring to get a piece of the Facebook and Twitter marketing pie. Social media is quite difficult to master, taking time, hard work and perseverance. That said, using these proven SMM strategies will help you hit the ground running.
Regularly create new blog posts. Adding the new content on a regular schedule will allow your readers to know when to check back. You can see this in magazine and newspaper subscriptions. Be sure to post consistently so that visitors will return to your site.
If you join a social media site, tell your existing customers that you have done so. When they join your social media page, most of these sites will also inform their connections they are following you. This form of free advertising should not be overlooked. This type of ad is more valuable because people receive it from someone they trust; it works like a referral program.
Put a Facebook “like” button somewhere on the homepage of your website. When they click on the box, they will be “liking” you on Facebook. This will allow visitors to “like” the post and they do not have to leave the blog. This will give you greater exposure on Facebook which can lead to a greater amount of visitors to your site.
Make it easy for your website’s visitors to follow you on social media sites. The majority of social media site users access them every day, so if you can give them easy access to you on their favorite sites, they will see instantly each time you post.
Make an effort to engage with your customers and facilitate a two-way flow cf information. Find out if they have any blogs or popular threads online and post whenever you can generate appropriate and engaging comments. Keep your comments limited to your company, products or niche. Do not interfere with their personal discussions.
Facebook makes it very easy for your followers to share your content. When a user comments on any posts, it will show on their page and their followers will see it. This means that any time your customers interact with your business, you are getting free advertising, so you want to encourage it.
Make tracking your site a priority. Over time you will be able to establish statistics that show how effective your campaigns are and the number of new people you get each week. Examine the link between your actions and your statistics. Figure out which decisions had the best results so that you can improve your strategies. Unless you can accurately track results, you cannot possibly gauge the success of your social media marketing tactics.
Respond to all Facebook comments. This should even be done for bad comments. The idea behind this is simple. People are taking the time to speak with you about your business, so the least you can do is return the favor. Respond as soon as you can so the person feels important and wanted as a customer.
