In this article I’m going to share with you the steps that I take every single day to ensure that the social media websites that I use have as much traffic as possible. These steps have helped to skyrocket my twitter and Facebook traffic and have led to thousands of visitors at my site and an even greater success in my online business. It’s very important for a business owner to always be on top of trends in order to grow their customer base. I use these tips every single day to keep myself “on the ball” whenever I log onto Twitter or Facebook. You need to check your “tweets” every single day and try to make sure they’re not deleted by mistake. The last thing you want to do is delete your actual tweet instead of saving it.
Step One – The First Step, Create Your Audience – If you’re looking to target an audience of three hundred social media users you need to have an audience of at least seven hundred. Use the hash tags as a powerful resource to gather your audience. Hash tags are the first step to gaining the attention of your target audience.
Step Two – The Second Step, Use Hash Tags Correctly – Using the hash tag in every post is just the first step in making sure your followers to see your updates. You also want to make sure that your followers notice your posts using the hash tag that best suits your business. For example, if your business is selling office supplies to office managers, use the #office supplies hash tag. This will help to ensure that office managers and their employees are aware of your business every time they log into their accounts.
Step Three – The Third Step, Stay Informed With Your Brand Voice – Make sure that you stay in touch with your target audience and keep communicating with them. Posting regularly and responding to messages is essential. Social platforms allow you to build strong relationships with your followers so that when you are creating content for your page, you are doing so with the intention of engaging your followers and addressing any questions they may have. Your brand voice is communicated through your posts.
Step Four – The Ultimate Social Checklist: 7 Steps to Follow for Every Post When it comes to using social platforms to reach out to your target audience, there are a few things to remember. One of the most important keys to effective social media is the use of hashtags. hashtags are short keywords that describe the content you want to share. The great example of this was during the election when candidates were vying to be more “electable.” Each candidate would post a post with a corresponding hashtag and in the end the most popular post would become the title of their post and a reason why their followers should like or share that post.
The United States’ Instagram introduced the hash tag trend during the campaign. The #hashtag became an instant way for people to share information about what the candidates were saying on their social media pages. The United States’ first popular Instagram celebrity, Lady Gaga, also used the hash tag in one of her posts. Instagram, like Facebook, uses the hash tag as a method of tagging posts that can appear on news feeds across their platform. The United States’ official Twitter account has also begun to use the hash tag as well.
Step Five – The Ultimate Social Checklist: 7 Steps to Follow for Every Post With the advent of social media, it is easy to forget how important it can be to manage your online brand. However, it is very important to remember that social media is just another tool to leverage your brand. It’s a great example of how a business or brand can be created through other people’s content. For example, if you are a pizza shop owner on Instagram, you could find someone who is promoting a digiorno for sale and start asking questions. From the digiorno ads to the customer testimonials that will be seen by everyone, Instagram is a great way to leverage a brand.
Step Six – The Ultimate Social Checklist: 6 Steps to Follow for Every Post In regards to social media, six things are generally accepted as must-dos. They include posting frequent, relevant content, creating interesting visuals, and regularly sharing links to your twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages. Six must-dos do make for a great example of what not to do when it comes to using social media for business. A few weeks ago, I was featured in an article on Fast Company about six trends that are rapidly changing the way businesses are built. One of those trends was the importance of Twitter for selling products. If you haven’t been on twitter yet, you are definitely missing out!
