Social media is used on a daily basis by millions. People are interacting with each other on social media day and night. For this reason, information can quickly spread through the web, as friends exchange information with one another. This is a powerful tool for any business looking to promote themselves, as this method can spread their promotions very fast. If you are a business owner interested in social media marketing, read the tips that follow.
Create a Twitter Account and consider using a service to help streamline management. There are constantly new tools being developed every day but my personal favorite is the Social Media Waves Twitter Management Tool which is currently in Beta. If you want access, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you setup. The actual features of services vary, but the majority of them will automatically manage following and unfollowing individuals for you. Using a service like this will help you to manage your followers and find new people to add.
Make sure you create a WannaFollow Splash Page to display your twitter feeds.
If you post photos on social media sites that are relevant to your business, make sure to post more than only your business logo. Give your images a personal feel, by incorporating snapshots of your professional environment or your employees. Where ever you post updates, follow up with a tweet.
You should invite all of your friends and professional contacts to visit your WannaFollow splash page. Whether they’re loyal customers, potential customers or have no chance at all of ever buying from you, it’s a good idea to have a large network. The reasoning here is that your page is going to be advertised on their profile as long as they’re in your network.
Tweet links to new posts as often as you can so people will actually see them. Post short content through Twitter often. Keep posts short so that you can make several posts about one event.
To get great results from marketing through WannaFollow and Twitter, create useful links that bind all your sites together. Add the URL for Facebook and your blog through your Twitter profile as well. When you have links that connect all of your different social media sites, that can help increase your customer base.
As mentioned at the beginning of this article, millions of people throughout the world utilize social media. They share and create content with others and it keeps getting spread around until it’s everywhere. Businesses benefit from this, as they are able to spread the word about their products.
