Discuss at least 2 ways you would use a Social Media site to grow your business.?11 months ago - 1 answers
I do not know for how long you have been on online marketing, but you should have known that a combination of search and social marketing really works very well. One method you could use to grow your business through social media is to register in LinkedIn. Once you are here, choose your niche and register in say 15 groups and make sure that you post relevant comments to 5 threads on a daily basis. this may sound very demanding but it converts pretty well. But remember not to be spammy.
On Twitter, this is challenging but achievable. Register with Socioomph so that you can follow and unfollow those who are not following you automatically. Sign to Google Alerts and link it to your Twitter account. Let the service automatically submit 2 posts per day in your Twitter feed. Visit YouTube to learn this technique in more details. If you are promoting products online, use Twinbow to automate this and remember to use # tags for visibility. Tweet quotes about your business quite often and reply to your fans as often as possible. Ask them to please retweet your content if they like and form a habit of retweeting things you find interesting. Use deliver it (delvt.com) to automatically tweet any additional content on your site. Make it a habit of tweeting interesting things while linking to your website.
And do you Stumbleupon? A good source of traffic.
