8 Crazy Simple Internet Marketing Tips To Make Your Social Media Loud

Social media marketing is on its way to becoming one of the main ways businesses market their products and services. It’s hard to imagine why a business wouldn’t utilize all the marketing potential of social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to make its brand stand out.

Combine these with the power of a good blog and a business can drive a lot of traffic its way. Social media has become a big part of our world and it’s not going anywhere. As companies rely more and more on the power of social media for their marketing, it’s important to keep things in perspective and adhere to a few key ideas. Take a look.

1) Resources- Is your company dedicating the time and personnel necessary to execute its social media marketing strategies?

Social media is about real time communication and needs constant attention. If your company is limited, don’t let your online marketing strategies get too big for you to handle.

Remember your limitations and design your social media accordingly. If you need to hire outside help to manage your social media, it’s important to stay involved enough that it stays in keeping with your company’s values, personality, and goals.

2) Driving Internet Traffic Isn’t Enough- It’s important to remember that even though social media is a new frontier for marketing, you can’t rely on it alone.

Paid advertisements and traditional marketing will always have their place, no matter how big online marketing gets.

Don’t resist trying new things, but don’t disregard other proven methods. Strike a balance.

3) Set Goals- Social media marketing is a lot more than just setting up some accounts and waiting for the likes and shares to pile up. You need establish goals and measure your progress. How many followers do you have after your first month?

How much of an increase do you want next month? How can you increase your likes and shares? How many more views do you want next month? Track your information and come up with reasonable, actionable ways to make progress.

4) Without Good Content, It’s All For Nothing- No matter how many posts or pics you put out there, no matter how many blog posts you write, if it’s not good content your followers want to see, it’s all a waste of your time.

You can’t just post for the sake of posting and you can’t just throw anything up just to say you posted something today. This will turn off today’s savvy social media users and cost you followers.

The same rule applies to pics. Nobody cares about your Pinterest if the pics are just terrible. Your blog can’t be a daily grind of you commenting on mundane, insignificant drek. Put time and thought into everything you post.

And remember, quality trumps quantity every time. Over posting is always a bad idea.

5) It’s Social Media…So Be Social- Your social media is more than just you broadcasting your company’s ideas. Communication is a two way street. If someone contacts you, respond in a timely manner.

Thank your followers and like other people’s content. If someone follows you, follow them back.

Social media is about building communities. Be a part of yours.

6) Be Of Service- You simply must be providing something valuable with your social media marketing if you want it to last. Be informative, helpful, knowledgeable, and entertaining. Set yourself up as an industry expert.

Your followers should be able to come to you for answers about not only your products and services, but about your industry as a whole.

7) Offer Incentives- Offer your followers incentives, like special offers and exclusive content for remaining loyal to your brand.

Offer visitors incentives for following you and signing up for your email list. It’s also vital to get your followers to share your content with their peers. That’s the backbone of any social media marketing strategy.

Make the online experience with your brand worth your followers’ time and make them want to share your content because it genuinely means something to them.

8) Where Are Your Customers?- It’s vital to identify where your customers are interacting with your brand the most and focus your efforts there. Are the majority of your customers using Facebook? Twitter? Pinterest?

Identify where they’re spending their time and reach out to them there.
