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

You need to think of ways to stay visible, If your goal is to build up your online reputation

If your goal is to build up your online reputation, you need to think of ways to stay visible. This is much easier to do on social media networking sites than anywhere else. It is a great idea to use these popular sites in your marketing endeavors. These sites can easily make or break you. This article contains many tips and tricks for employing social media marketing in your business or personal life. Utilize caution when it comes to engaging a company that offers social media marketing services. A lot of those companies run bad businesses to scam amateurs who do not know better. Businesses use myriads of fake social media accounts that they use bots to build. Your advertisement then falls by the wayside, because real people will not likely view it and you end up losing all the money you paid to the marketing company.

TIP! Post new blog entries at least four or five times a week. If you’re having a promotion or a sale, make sure to post it to your blog.

Answer any questions your followers ask and respond to comments they make to engage them in conversation. Remember to say thank you when your name or business is spoken about and to directly provide responses to any questions that are asked. If you do this, your followers will have a better opinion of you. You will also establish yourself as a real person and not just a business entity. Include a widget for Facebook’s “Like” button on your blog at the top of every page. This button makes it easy for readers to “like” your content on Facebook. Having this directly on your blog lets your visitors “like” you without having to leave your page. This means that they never have to leave. It’s something really simple but incredibly convenient that can help you increase your network a lot.

Be sure you have your website set up so that your visitors can “Like” you and follow your activities via social media

TIP! When you write a blog post, be sure there is a share button for FaceBook included. This will let people who visit your blog share what they see with their friends.

Be sure you have your website set up so that your visitors can “Like” you and follow your activities via social media. People use all kinds of social media sites daily. By letting them have quicker access using their favorite social media site, they will be able to access your posts more easily. Include the names of influential users of Twitter by name-dropping with an “@” symbol preceding the name. By doing this, they receive notification that you have posted about them. This can either lead to a tweet reply, or they will re-broadcast your post to a wider audience. You will frequently see interesting photo-shopped images on social media ad pages. It is a very brilliant idea to use attractive images to draw buyers onto your ad. Once you lure them in, they will be more likely to click through to your site and buy one of your products or services.

TIP! Make sure you have a set plan before you attempt social media marketing. You need to have a realistic view of the time and resources it will take to manage the site.

When working with social media and using it to promote your business, you must be prepared for any negative feedback that comes with it. Although it is wonderful when followers appreciate your goods and services, you must also respond to any negative remarks. Do not turn your back on it but face it head on and help those customers who are unhappy.

 

Apply these tips to improve your marketing strategy and see how easy it is to attract and retain customers using social media. If you haven’t used social media before, you’ll soon recognize that social media sites are one of the best ways to reach potential customers and to build relationships with customers you already have.
