In this article I am going to tell you how to optimize your online properties to get the most out of your social media efforts.

1. Your Email

  • Socialize those emails and give them an opportunity to travel and crawl.
  • Add your social profiles so that they can easily like your pages and follow you.
  • Also don’t forget to encourage your readers to “share” the email be it via social means or resending via their email.

2. Your website

  • Optimize that website with keywords that will then be reused and recycled on your social posts.
  • Put your social feeds on your homepage.
  • Ask your visitors to follow you for more updates.

3. Your Blog

  • Add your most followed feed on the sidebar of your blog.
  • Ask your readers to continue the discussion via your social profiles.

4. Your Social Profiles

  • Keep the conversation going by sharing your recent blog posts and promoting a discussion with a question.
  • Check your most searched for terms and use them in posts.
  • Join or create advocacy communities and share information that relates to your products and services.
  • Link all your social profiles together. Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn and many others give you the opportunity to share your platforms.

5. Check Back Periodically and Keep Your Profiles Up-to-Date

  • Some of your social platforms may no longer be relevant to your audience, so eliminate them and replace them with relevant ones.
  • Always be on the lookout for new engagement opportunities that can enhance your brand

Following these 5 guidelines will keep you and your content relevant. It’s easy to favor one platform or activity, but you will increase your engagement and ROI by connecting all the social dots!
