Social Media Marketing - Iris Carter-Collins, Speaker and Coach

When you start a business on any medium, you have to have a solid business plan if you are to be successful

You may already know this, but when you start a business on any medium, you have to have a solid business plan if you are to be successful. You must learn all the techniques available and then build on them with your own expertise, so use what you’ve read here to get started and then grow from there! Offer special opportunities and discounts to those who follow you on social media. Encourage them with something they won’t be able to get from someone else. You can run a contest, for example. If this is not up to your alley, offer a special deal if they choose to follow you. Additionally, make special announcements exclusively on your social sites. To maximize your site, allow comments and ratings. These functions allow customers to personalize their visit to your site. Your social media site needs to have fresh content posted on a regular basis. Your customers may expect regular updates. If you don’t provide these, you may find yourself losing customers. Make an attempt to provide updates several times each week. You need to get started right away with social media marketing whether you feel prepared or not. You can learn as you go, and you will eventually find your voice. One option is to copy the competition in the ways they’re currently effective. Look at their social profiles, check out their specials and discounts, and read their content.

You can combine email marketing along with social media

TIP! Use a like box for Facebook on the upper right-hand corner of your blog page. Readers can easily “like” it and it will show up on their page.

You can combine email marketing along with social media. Include a Twitter or Facebook buttons at the end of any emails and let customers know that you’ll answer their questions personally on those social networks. In addition, post a link on the registration page to get people to sign up for your newsletter. The best way to contact your customers on a social networking site is direct. Your customer doesn’t want to make friends with you and then deal with an anonymous customer service rep. If a customer is aware that they are communicating with one particular person who cares about their concerns, they will have more faith in you and your company. Connect social media profiles with your website. You can do this by adding “share” buttons for your visitors to easily share your website and content on their own social networking profiles. To facilitate quick and easy sharing, include sharing buttons on each page of your website, at the end of each blog post and in the form of RSS feeds.
