Many entrepreneurs don’t have the time needed to really invest in a social media marketing strategy. It takes a lot of time and patience to make it a success for your business. That is why so many seek the help of a social media consultant.
There are many SEO techniques that can boost your search engine ranking. Let’s take a look at a few simple ones that you can use to get your website noticed.
The other way that you can add value is through making your own videos. And ideally posting them on YouTube. A lot of people are doing this. It’s also a great way to get your message across and, plus, it is more personal as people get to see you talk. There are also other websites that offers video-hosting platforms, such as Vimeo, Vzaar, to name a few. You can choose the best ones out there and start making your own video.
Request that the consultant provide you with links that will take you to some examples of their work, both current and previous. Look at past campaigns and see if they resulted in increased brand exposure and leads. Would those samples work well with your own audience?
When you are feeling uninspired do you reach to Flickr, weheartit and Pinterest for inspiration? I certainly do. Now…last week I was feeling very inspired by the colours and florals being used in wedding photography on sites such as once wed. The site I was searching on was My Pinterest.
There are hundreds and thousands of internet or network marketers out there who are now multi-millionaires all because of the Internet. However, on the same note, while you have the internet as the key tool to promote your business, you still do need strategies, and countless of them, in order to be able to succeed. In other words, INNOVATIVENESS. Being innovative is vital in the world of doing business online and it applies to ANY kind of businesses, whether it’s promoting a product or service.
One final note on social media: Always include links. Social media is ultimately designed to drive traffic. “To where?” you ask. To wherever people will be most convinced that they want to read your work. Sometimes that is your website, other times it’s your Amazon page. Don’t be afraid to lead them around a bit, either. For instance, I often use Twitter to drive traffic to Facebook, and Facebook to my various websites. Get people to follow the links-it will help your SEO results if you do it right.
