5 Tips for Jazzing Up Your Social Posts

Posted By: Albert B Hammond – Written By Tina Courtney

Successful companies in social media function more like entertainment companies, publishers, or party planners than as traditional advertisers.”

– Eric Qualman, motivational keynote speaker on the topics of digital leadership, reputation and trends

Every single thing your brand posts on social media is a direct reflection of your company’s values, creativity, and perception of its followers.

If your social shares are sloppy, uninformed, lackluster, or unengaging, your followers view your business in the same light — if they think of you at all.

Social media posts that don’t contain elements that catch a viewer’s attention and drive them to share or take the desired action are effectively undermining your efforts and causing your brand to fail in driving the awareness it deserves.

In order to gain the type of exposure and engagement needed for a smashing social media presence, there are several posting elements that are an absolute necessity.

If you are on the prowl for ways to jazz up your social shares, here are five components to an artfully crafted social post.

Be Active, Not Passive

Passive language fails to engage readers. Using this type of verbiage and sentence structure often comes off as boring and mundane.

The active language feels more exciting and spirited. Aim to use the strongest language possible when developing your social copy. PlainLanguage.gov also points out the importance of implementing an active voice in writing by stating:

Readers prefer active voice sentences, and we should try to use the active voice in most of our business writing to communicate our message most effectively. The active voice clearly identifies the action and who is performing that action.”

If you are unsure if your writing is active or passive, The University of Wisconsin – Madison provides a clear definition:

In a sentence written in the active voice, the subject of the sentence performs the action. In a sentence written in the passive voice, the subject receives the action.”

If you still find yourself confused over the matter, the Hemingway App can help you identify such phrases and eliminate them from your social copy.

Share Content Others Want to Share

To share content that will compel and engage followers, you must first understand why people share the types of content they do.

Overall, there are five major reasons for the spread of content by individuals on social media:

  • Deliver Value:  People like to share information that they, and others, find valuable. This can be anything that is helpful, resourceful, or beneficial to people’s lives in some way.
  • To Express Themselves:  Mark Zuckerberg once said, “Think about what people are doing on Facebook today. They’re keeping up with their friends and family, but they’re also building an image and identity for themselves.”  Share content that supports your audience’s beliefs and they are likely to spread the word.
  • To Connect:  Social media is all about relationships and conversations. People often share content as a way to get others talking about a certain topic. Support this by sharing posts that inspire tagging and sharing.
  • To Feel Valued:  People often share materials they know will get lots of likes and comments. Try writing a few social posts giving thanks to your followers and see how many reciprocate the appreciation.
  • To Show Support:  Noble causes spread across social like wildfire. It is fine for your brand to create posts that stand in solidarity with a certain group. It doesn’t have to be controversial, but sometimes controversy can be a good thing.

    Images and Cross-Promotion

Most are aware that images are a necessity for social sharing. For major brands, 60 percent of their posts include images; this accounts for roughly 80 percent of their engagement.

By now, most understand the power of images, making it necessary for brands to take things a step further. Color plays a major psychological role in how people perceive an image. In fact, one study on how color impacts marketing uncovered that roughly 90 percent of individuals make judgments about a product based on colors alone. This means that introducing the tenants of color theory into your repertoire could have profound impacts on your social presence.

Moreover, principals such as the rule of thirds will help you find or create much more eye-catching images to pair with your social shares. If you feel compelled to go even deeper, you can even implement the golden rule, which is a more complex variation on the rule of thirds.

Now that you have stellar images to share, post them on Facebook via Instagram. A Buzzsumo study of more than one billion Facebook posts revealed that images shared on Facebook via Instagram receive more engagement than when merely posted on Facebook.

Hashtags Aren’t the Only Game in Town

Here’s an interesting one for you: Stop hashtagging on Facebook.

The aforementioned Buzzsumo research also found that Facebook posts that include hashtags receive less engagement than those that don’t.

Alternatively, according to the Panorama marketing blog, “Emoticons receive 33 percent more comments, are shared 33 percent more often, and are liked 57 percent more than Facebook posts without emoticons.”

While hashtags are a great discovery tool on other social networks, they are actually harming your Facebook presence.

Create Curiosity

Clickbait often goes viral because it sparks curiosity. I am not saying to start creating clickbait, but that curiosity is a powerful force.

George Loewenstein, Professor of Economics and Psychology, is a leading expert in the field of curiosity. His studies have found that curiosity is triggered when something:

  • Defies expectation and challenges common assumptions;
  • Reveals an informational breach in knowledge;
  • Is not overdone (curiosity does wane).

That said, share content that opposes accepted viewpoints, ask questions that tease at something that most may not be aware of, and engage in discussions with your audience around these topics.

Social posting is as much an art as it is a science. But try not to get too wrapped up in the science portion of it. When you are having fun creating content and provoking discussions on social media, it shows. And that is the type of energy that will make others want to join in on the fun.

What are your favorite ways to provoke curiosity?

The Best Ways to Create High-Quality Natural Backlinks in 2016

Posted By: Albert B Hammond – Written By Jim Daniels

With so many algorithm changes that have taken place over the past few years, some SEO professionals have declared that traditional backlinks are dead. Although link building has experienced massive changes, it is still alive and kicking. The manner in which backlinks are to be built, however, has to be modernized.

What does it take to build quality, white hat, natural backlinks in 2016? Several SEO strategies will deliver the best possible results.

Quality Content

Natural backlinks are the ones that other websites use to point their audience to your content. Why would other websites want to do that? The answer is simple. Your site features quality content that their audience is going to benefit from.

Thus, the best 2016 SEO link building strategy does not focus on links at all. It focuses on having a good content strategy.

Come up with a content plan and get in the habit of updating your website on a regular basis. Stick to very specific, well-researched and unique topics. The more original your content is, the more others will be willing to share links.

On top of making it easier to obtain quality backlinks, a good content strategy will boost exposure and help you establish your website’s online reputation. This is essential for getting your articles and other types of content to go viral. Thus, good content will also play a role in your social media marketing strategy.

Boost Social Media Marketing Efforts

Social media sites are considered high authority websites. This is the main reason why social media marketing can impact your link building strategy.

Many social networks do not provide do-follow links. This means that links coming from such websites are not going to have an impact on your link building strategy. Facebook is one such website. Still, sharing content through Facebook makes sense because it impacts your online reputation. It also boosts audience engagement, which will have an indirect impact on your SEO efforts.

Focus on content sharing via a big number of social channels. Use both social networking and social bookmarking websites.

Some of the best social media that will impact your link building strategy include Pinterest, Google+, YouTube, LinkedIn, HubPages, Reddit, Tumblr, and WordPress. As already mentioned, these are not the only social media networks to focus the efforts on. Even the ones that do not directly impact your link building strategy will produce social signals that help to build a website’s reputation and maximize the traffic.

Guest Posting

When done correctly, guest posting is a good strategy for link building in 2016. Just like with any other link building method, guest posting should be all about quality rather than quantity.

Guest posting refers to writing a unique article for another website or blog. It gets featured there, including an author biography and a link to your website. The blog benefits from a fresh piece of content written by an expert and you benefit from a backlink.

To be effective when it comes to guest blogging, choose relevant websites. Authority websites that discuss topics similar to yours provide the best links. Therefore, you should do your research when it comes to choosing guest posting partners.

Many high-quality websites that accept guest posts have strict requirements when it comes to the style and the quality of the texts that they upload. You will have to spend time writing high-quality guest posts but the strategy is very effective but it requires consistent effort.

Avoid Blackhat Link Building at All Costs

In the past, it was easy to build hundreds of links through blackhat techniques and the use of low-quality partner websites. This is a strategy to avoid at all costs in 2016. Such ‘easy’ link building fixes can easily backfire and get you penalized.

Paid links are a big no-no. The same applies to submitting your links to low quality, generic websites, and directories. The quantity of the links will not compensate for the lack of relevance. In fact, if you have such backlinks in your profile (check through Google Webmaster Tools), it would be a good idea to get them purged.

Link building is still the backbone of good SEO but it does not happen easily. The best thing to do is focus on website quality. Good content and high audience engagement will help you to build your website reputation, which will lead to natural backlinks. This strategy requires time to work but it has the most sustainable effects.

Top Marketing Trends to Implement in 2017

Posted By: Albert B Hammond – Written By Andrew Gazdeck

Without a doubt, the global digital economy represents the strongest potential of untapped revenue in recent years. According to eMarketer, $1.915 trillion was earned throughout 2016 solely through eCommerce. That’s trillion, by the way; not million, not billion, almost two, freaking, trillion dollars. It isn’t hard to understand why smart businesses have shifted their focus from traditional forms of marketing to capitalize on this massive global opportunity.

Truthfully, going into 2017 with just a website isn’t going to cut it anymore. Innovative marketing techniques have outstripped traditional methods tenfold, and to compete in the digital world, a business needs to implement multiple strategies just to make a mark. The best advice is to focus on some of the top marketing trends of 2017, so your business can establish itself before it becomes too crowded.

Content Marketing of 2017

Engagement is the defining factor in the newest trends in marketing. Social media has shattered the barriers between a consumer and a company. A study published in the Harvard Business Review says that modern consumers ignore blatant advertisements. It is too easy to research outrageous claims that used to be the staple of television commercials. When a company screws up, the entire world can hear about. While this might seem like marketing is dead, it’s not. It’s thriving.

From the flames, marketing has been reborn in the form of quality content that improves a consumer’s life without a conditional purchase. That last part is key. Quality content marketing provides unconditional value. No tricks like, “For the low price of $19.95.” We have all been wary of those gimmicks since the second that they emerged. With near-universal access to the Internet in post-industrialized countries, we will simply find another business that doesn’t feel like they are about to pull a con. The uninformed consumer is gone.

There are several variations of content marketing, and while it is recommended to try multiple strategies, the major negative element is that content marketing requires a large time investment. There is no quick, easy way to get around it. To pull off a successful content marketing campaign, a business will almost always need to hire someone to generate the material. A couple of posts will not be sufficient because aside from the content itself, consistency is paramount to the ability to materialize results. Who cares if you posted a video a year ago? Why should I subscribe if you don’t produce content now?

Fresh Take on Traditional E-mail Campaigns

While this concept might seem old, within the context of content marketing, e-mail campaigns are a new beast. Try to think of all the junk mail you get in your inbox. How much of it do you read? How much of it do you even open? Using a direct e-mail campaign in 2017 needs to have two elements, the subscribers needed to opt-in and each message needs to sound personal.

These are important because if you have built trust with your consumer, then a direct e-mail campaign has one of the highest ROI of all of these strategies. The secret of tapping into that ROI is by continuing to provide value through the e-mail. This can come in the form of tasteful sales promotions, relevant educational content, or simply having the ability to entertain an audience. If your audience wants to read your stuff, you will dramatically increase your conversion rate.

The Birth of Content Marketing is Blogging

This is another form that has been around a couple of years and is probably the genesis of the whole content marketing movement. It is like direct e-mailing in the idea that they are both primarily a written medium, but blogging can be a bit easier to implement because it does not require an extensive opt-in e-mail list.

To succeed through blogging, it’s important to not only develop relationships with your consumers, but also with the authorities within your niche. Guest posting, reblogs, and back links are all generated from developing relationships with people who might not be your target demographic. These methods are catalysts to turn a small blog into something huge. An added benefit of blogging is that the new content helps elevate the search engine ranking of your website. Who doesn’t want to be No. 1 on Google?

Infographics are a Fusion of Art and Writing

Take eye-catching design elements and fuse them into the headlines you see in a blog post, the result is an infographic. In a way, memes are a simplified version of an infographic, and this has proven to be one of the most effective forms of viral advertisement in the digital world. To get a solid idea of an infographic, just type it into Google (It is 2017 after all).

The image itself helps tell a story, and the graphic proves to be more effective at grabbing an audience’s attention than if it were only text. Many times, infographics will be used in conjunction with other forms of content marketing and act as a door on social media. The image catches someone’s attention, then they click to get more info.

Engaging Videos Dominate

YouTube has revolutionized video production because anyone can make their own pseudo-television channel. The truth is that a large segment of the population would rather watch a video than read a post. Due to this nature, a prolific amount of content is generated daily. Businesses that use video marketing as more of a documentary, rather than a commercial, find huge amounts of success on YouTube. Try to document part of the processes it takes to run your business, and use this to entertain and educate your audience.

Podcasts Foster Deep Educational Content

Like YouTube, though not quite as mainstream, podcasts are the equivalent of independent radio. I’ve noticed that there is a larger cross-over between people who read blogs and listen to podcasts, than people who solely watch videos and listen to podcasts. The lack of visual stimulation can make this form unappealing to some audiences.

The best podcasts will always have strong personalities as hosts and will generally introduce guests to keep things fresh. Instead of being strictly scripted, most sound like a recording of a conversation, and the depth of the topics allows audiences to draw immense amounts of value.

Mobile Development

Moving away from the content marketing trend of 2017, mobile development is the next major wave of this new year. According to the Pew Research Center, average consumers are plugged into their Smartphones almost every hour that they are awake. This has resulted in vital importance being placed on mobile-friendly, digital content. While many people assume that means having a mobile version of your website, the mobile-centric trend of 2017 goes into much more depth which includes learning how to create an app for some businesses.

A website is contingent on a browser and Internet connection. In some cases, this is no problem. A customer goes to Google, searches for your website (hopefully you show up on the first page, but that is a separate topic entirely), and clicks to find you. 2017 will be the reaper to this soon to be an archaic process.

Instead of completing a bunch of additional steps, customers will scroll through their apps and click on the business that they wanted to find. Due to downloading crucial data before it is used, apps increase user experience and provide a direct link to your content. No worrying about your search ranking, no hassle of trying to get good service. One click, done. 2017 will result in more businesses using the best app makers to rival websites.

Social Selling/Relationship Media

The last major marketing trend of 2017 does not focus on new technology, but rather a refinement on something we already have, social media. Most businesses have treated their social media accounts as a free way to advertise to potential customers. Advertising Age seems to believe that this doesn’t work nearly as well as anticipated. In a similar vein as content marketing, consumers are too perceptive when it comes to a company trying to sell a product. An ad on social media is still an ad, and they are largely getting ignored. This is the crux of the change.

Social media was never intended to be a free form of advertising, instead, it was supposed to be used to maintain a massive network of relationships regardless of location. 2017 will see more companies embrace this philosophy and use their social media accounts to engage with their customers. The goal is not to sell, but to build a relationship. After a relationship has been formed, subtle social selling is far more effective. Effective social selling turns cold prospects in loyal consumers.

Parting Thoughts

2017 is positioned to be an explosive year in more ways than one. Regardless of one’s political beliefs, the economy shows ample potential for those who are willing to brave a new front and become a pioneer. By the end of 2017, the above trends will likely be the dominant methods of securing new business and maintaining relationships.

How Facebook 360 Can Spice Up Your Content


Posted By: Albert B Hammond – Written By Julia McCoy

Millions of hours of daily video watches combined with billions of photos uploaded on Facebook equal a really big number of social media users who are posting, sharing, and liking all types of content every single day.

For many Smartphone users, capturing memories on a phone or tablet is a normal part of life, but how we let others experience those moments could soon be changing.

Facebook 360 launched in 2015 as an innovative, interactive way to shoot video and take pictures and, while technology continues to advance, innovative social media capabilities hold much potential for online content marketing professionals.

Today, we will take a closer look at what Facebook 360 is, who uses it, and what content creators should keep in mind for the year ahead.

What is Facebook 360?

Facebook 360 allows publishers across a variety of industries to showcase the best in compelling stories by way of video and photos. The experience takes viewers inside a whole new world that can be optimized for their comfort as they engage at the center of the action.

A New Angle on Videos

Facebook 360 first allowed users to take advantage of video capabilities in their News Feed, giving them a choice of camera angles and allowing viewers a new view on what they were seeing. The audience can interact with the screen, switch the angle of the camera, and be a part of the moment without being there in person.

Big names in business have hopped onboard the 360 video technology trend to reach their audience in a whole new way, including:

Goodbye, Flat Photos – Hello, Interactive Images

In 2016, social media users were introduced to 360 photos, which is as simple as using the app or supported camera to take a panorama picture, post it, and allow the site to convert it to an immersive and interactive experience.

Unlike traditional photos, 360 creates a 3D view of the environment and gives the audience a chance to be involved in the scene. All of a sudden, pictures can go from flat to real-life, right before our eyes.

How Content Creators Can Use Facebook 360 in Storytelling

There is so much potential for content creators to use Facebook 360 in telling the story of their brand, sharing their message, and driving customers to respond.

Social media users could potentially move away from a traditional video medium, where the experience is a controlled, one-way narrative, to a whole new world of discovery and interaction with your brand.

While content creation is just beginning to scratch the surface of Facebook 360, there is what seems to be limitless potential for keeping an audience engaged and excited through a two-way medium.

Whether we’re watching Facebook Live or sharing native videos, we enjoy content on a personal level. It’s one thing to talk about an event and see a picture of a product, but it’s something else altogether when we feel like we’re there in real-time as a participant.

Here are a few guidelines to remember as content marketing begins to dive into the world of 360 video and its possibilities. Ready to go 360?

1. Consider the First Three Seconds

Research has proven that content marketers have only a precious few seconds to grab the video viewers’ attention and make them want to stay before they move on to something else.

Analyzers found that when people watched less than three seconds of a Facebook video ad, that group created up to 47 percent of the total campaign value. When the time rose to less than 10 seconds, that number jumped up to 74 percent.

The first several seconds are critical, and too often the hook isn’t there, or it isn’t enough to pique the interest of a reader.

Capturing the attention of your viewers at the very beginning and keeping them for just eight seconds will work wonders for your content efforts. Keep in mind that value increases the longer people watch and that the number of views alone is not necessarily an indication of video value; it’s OK to experiment with shorter video content.

And if you ever doubt the power of marketing a somewhat boring product, consider Farmer’s Insurance and the creative genius it displays by taking something as mundane as insurance to a whole other level of engagement (read more about that here).

2. Let the Video Tell the Story

When you are ready to show off something new, talk about a new idea, or introduce an exciting content addition, Facebook 360 is a powerful content tool you can use to put all that goodness into an interactive format.

As an example, rather than simply announcing a special event, you can take your users inside the experience by shooting video and leaving them with an invitation to join. 360 video is also an exciting option for demonstrating products, interviewing clients, and showcasing a specific location.

Like outer space, for example. Have you ever been to Mars? You can now, thanks to NASA and 360.

3. Don’t Overlook the Mobile Experience

Did you know that a whopping 92 percent of mobile video consumers share videos with people they know? That number alone is one reason to make mobile content marketing a priority in 2017, and Facebook 360 videos and photos can help.

By taking a medium that is quickly growing as the primary source of Internet access and equipping the audience with more exciting photos and videos, the potential for engagement could rise in ways we can’t quite imagine right now.

Getting Started with Facebook 360

While there is still much to learn about all the possibilities that exist with Facebook 360, the content reach looks to be wide open. When this type of technology is combined with high-quality content that is relevant and consistent, there is no limit to who can be reached with a brand’s story or message.

The Importance Of Adding Content Marketing To Your 2017 Marketing Plan

Posted By: Albert B Hammond – Written By Sparky Parker


Content marketing has become the buzz word in the last few years. Because of the latest algorithms that Google has put in place, it has become increasingly important that website owners produce content that will captivate readers and engage them.

Content marketing offers businesses the opportunity to connect with customers by producing content that is relevant and educational. It is an excellent way to build your brand and be seen as an expert, which is vital for attracting new business.

Mobile devices are being used regularly to access the internet and the content that is created needs to target these consumers. When you are trying to pinpoint the exact demographic you are marketing to, it is essential that you consider the methods they will be using to log on. For instance, if you are targeting teen girls who are still in high school, it is important that all of your content can easily be read on a mobile device since this is the main method they would use to get online.

You should also target users who are likely to share your content with others. In the same vein, you must create content that is so compelling people cannot help but spread the word. Instead of the stale, bland content, everyone is used to, here are a few ideas to help get people talking and sharing.

 

  • Create interactive content that people will need to toy around with. For example, create a quiz that is relevant to your business. They will fill it out, get results and share it with their friends so they can test their smarts as well.

    – Internet speeds have risen globally in 2016. As a result, you can feel more comfortable creating content that is filled with graphics. Images command much more attention than plain words on a screen.

    Most successful businesses use content marketing to their advantage. If you are not doing the same, it will be far too easy for you to slip through the cracks. Not only do you have to create content, but you have to make it better than anything else that is available.

  • You can use content marketing as part of your email marketing strategy as well. By writing compelling subject lines, sending emails at ideal times and creating landing pages that match the messages that are sent out are all excellent ways to make people read what you send. Be sure that the subject line aligns with the content that you are sending your readers to read, otherwise, you could be marked as a spammer.

     

  • By taking the time and creating content that is relevant and useful, you will attract people to your website. You can share your content on the many social sites and you won’t have to rely so much on Google to get visitors to your site.

    Each year, content marketing strategies must change in order to fit the times. The methods being used will evolve over time, but the fact remains that this is currently and always will be one of the most effective ways to reach your intended audience.

Get More Sales And Grow Your Business By Generating Leads From Facebook

Posted By: Dori O’Neill

When you are trying your best to generate new leads, it is essential to try all possible channels. If you have never considered using Facebook for this purpose, now is the time to start. Here are some pointers that will help you be more successful than you ever imagined.

Create A Professional Looking Facebook Page
If you are trying to give people the idea that you are a solid business owner and you have what they need, your page has to reflect that. The first order of business is making sure that you create a business page instead of using a personal page for this purpose. Business pages are more accessible and people will be able to like and follow you without waiting for approval.
Here are several things that will help create a professional vibe on your page:
– Fill in every piece of information on the page. Incomplete profiles give people the idea that a company may not be legitimate.
– Avoid making errors on the page. Grammar and spelling mistakes are very amateurish and no one will take it seriously.
– Use your company logo as a profile picture. Branding is one of the keys to business success, so it certainly applies when your goal is to generate leads.
The more professional a page looks, the more likely people will be to take your business seriously. This is essential when you are seeking new leads.
Start A Contest
This is a good way to call attention to your business on Facebook. Offer people the opportunity to win some of your products for referring others to the page. Keep in mind that the prize offered should be relevant to your business. For example, a landscaper that offers a free consultation will generate more valuable leads than one who offers an iPhone. If they offer the latter, people will only come for the phone and leave once the contest is complete and they realize they don’t actually need what you are offering.
Use The 80/20 Rule
When you are offering content on your page, it should not all be focused on making sales. You have to strike a balance between offering useful content and trying to sell your products and services. For best results, 80 percent should be content that offers information and has great value, while 20 percent should be promotional materials. Businesses tend to generate more leads when it does not seem like they are trying too hard. Desperation is a real deal breaker, so try your best not to look like you are seriously in need.
Use The Promoted Posts Feature
Most people who have Facebook accounts do not see posts from all of the pages they have liked. Once they have hit the Like button, it is rare for them to see posts from the page in their newsfeed. They have to revisit the actual page in order to view the things you post. This is not likely to happen when they have liked thousands of pages.
The solution to this is to take advantage of the Promoted Posts feature. You pay a fee and Facebook makes sure that your posts appear at the top of user’s newsfeeds. Always use a great image and title to capture the attention of your targeted audience.
By following these tips, it won’t be long until you begin to see an increase in the number of people who want to do business with your company.

Posted By Patrick Godknecht

If you’re interested in promoting yourself or your organization online, you are probably well aware that being active on social networks is an increasingly important part of the process. Building a strong social media presence does more than just advertise your brand.

Maintaining an online reputation as a knowledgeable and trustworthy source of information can be a powerful deciding factor when potential customers choose between you and your competitors. It’s not just vendors looking to make sales that are interested in cultivating authoritative reputations.

Individuals and companies that take pains to build good online reputations have an easier time attracting a wider audience because they are linked to other by other authorities and favored by the search engines. Building an authoritative reputation is a proven strategy for expanding your reach and attracting a wider audience.

Take the time to write content that will deliver genuine value to people who discover it through your social media promotional efforts. Include strong reference links that support your ideas and guide your audience to even more information they’ll find useful.

Engaging With The Community

As noted above, social networks are all about unbiased, back-and-forth communication. This makes them uniquely suited to engaging far more directly with your audience than other venues. Embrace this feature of social media rather than shying away from it. Encourage readers to reach out to you by addressing your social profiles and do your best to answer questions in an insightful, respectful way.

Social networks give you the opportunity to interact with people who are already seen as authorities in your field, too. Take advantage of this by keeping up with the latest trends in your niche, and don’t be afraid to reach out to influential people when you have something meaningful to say. Getting a little communication flowing between yourself and your niche’s thought leaders can bring you to the attention of a much larger audience.

Social Media Marketing Strategies That Can Boost Your Business

Do you need to boost sales by getting people more familiar with your brand and business? There are plenty of great strategies that can assist with that. Look through the following tips and you will find many methods that will work in your favor.

Share posts that are likely to be shared by your followers. Instead of just telling people to click on your link to go to a page and buy something from you, give them something fun or useful to share. For instance, display a photograph of a cute animal or a blog post that has the top 10 ways to do something related to your niche. Then, you can include a link to your product page in the post as well so people that want to share what entertained them are also spreading your link.

A contest can be a fun way to get people interested in what your business does. Come up with a prize, and a way for people to participate. This might be one of your products, an email gift certificate or even something surprising and grand like a day at a spa or fun vacation. Offer an incentive such as those who comment on a particular post and share it will be able to enter to win the prize. When you’re able to get people to participate and share the contest’s message, you can get your brand’s name out there and encourage an even greater audience to take a look at your products or services.

Most social media sites let you pay to advertise to their users. For instance, you can set up Facebook ads that only display to people in specific demographics you assign. Before you send out any ads, come up with a few profiles of potential customers you want to market to. Who are they, what age group do they fall in, are they male or female or both and where are they from? Once you have an idea of the target demographics for your brand campaign, you can set up social media ads to only show up for those people.

Learn how to interact with others on social media, and remain aware – you’re always being watched. If you are taking to a rude customer or someone that’s out of line, don’t curse them out or do anything rash. Instead, remain professional, address their problem and then move on. If further correspondence is needed, take it to a private message. Keep in mind though, even if it’s a private message, that person may share what you said with the world through a screenshot, so stay professional and offer effective solutions to resolve the problem. As a last resort, it’s okay to block someone who simply won’t stop posting negativity despite your best efforts. Save this for a last resort though, because it’s always better to maintain good customer relations and show that you’re serious about customer service. Even if you are not able to retain that customer, someone else is watching.

The right social media marketing strategies can effectively boost your brand and business. You just have to take it a step at a time. Once you start to see results, continue to build your online presence with positivity to entice the world to take a look at your brand. Once they do, success will be at your doorstep.
