Social Media Marketing Tips And Tricks For Saving Money And Time

By Michael Murphy

If you are a business owner, many, if not most, of your customers have one or more social media accounts. Because of this, it's important to make your business a prominent figure on those sites. Explore the many social networking sites, and create a marketing campaign for the ones that best fit your business mix. This is a great way to form relationships and create new customers.

Twitter is an excellent platform for social media marketing. Once you understand the basics of Twitter, you can increase the visibility of your business to hundreds of thousands of new people. Learn about using hastags, keywords, etc. on Twitter.

Learn to utilize YouTube. You can post videos related to your business on this site. This allows you to create a greater personalization with your customers as they hear your voice and see your face. If you have a Twitter account, you can send links to your new content, increasing your YouTube traffic.

It is important to remember to frequently add new and different content to your twitter feed. Tweet advice and useful information that is relevant to your market niche. Mixing both fun and factual tweets together will keep your audience focused on your feed.

Try to collaborate with other people and companies when using social media. When they link to your content or share your content, you are being exposed to a brand new group of fans and followers. Return the favor and link to their content as well. The more people who link to your content and social media posts, the better off you are.

Utilize RSS feeds. These all people to subscribe to your feed and have the posts go into their Google Reader account once your feeds are published. This makes your content accessible in an easy-to-access way for your customers. Make the button to subscribe easy to identify, so the whole process takes no effort on the part of those visiting your site.

Get some exposure by organizing a competition on Facebook. You could select a winner randomly among your friends, post trivia questions or have a photo contest related to your products. Make sure you advertise your contest on your website and newsletter: the goal is to get more people to find you on Facebook.

You can have your Twitter posts appear on your Facebook wall as well. Perhaps writing different posts might be best since your audience on Twitter might slightly differ from your Facebook friends, and Twitter is about writing extremely short posts. However, this allows you to update both websites very easily.

You can have your LinkedIn updates include what you post on Twitter by adding the Twitter application to your profile. Even if Twitter posts are generally shorter than LinkedIn updates, you will be able to reach out to a larger number of people and encourage your LinkedIn friends to find you on Twitter.

Learn the posting patterns on social sites. The peak traffic times for many of these sites are at 7 A.M., 5 P.M. and 10 P.M. and those are the times that you should be sure to post something new. If you post more than those three times, be sure that you are posting something unique and interesting, but limit the total number of times you post each day.

You should always work hard to include social media in your marketing efforts. Any work you do in social media takes time to see the real results. Instead of analyzing your results after a month, wait a year to determine your overall progression.

If your message, media, platform, and audience all align; the result will always be successful. After you begin pulling in the traffic from your quality advertisements, all you must do is learn and evolve with the changes around you. It is a demanding world online, but the rewards outweigh the work, and it is impossible to argue with profits.
