Social Media Marketing Tips And Tricks

Social Media Marketing Tips And TricksThere are different methods of marketing that as a business leader you should implement in your business. Telling people about your products and services is getting better with each day bringing in a new strategy that can be used in communicating more about your products efficiently. Social media advertising is one of the best strategies that organizations are using to convince customers to buy their products and services. This article has compiled some tried and tested social media marketing tips that you can implement in your business.

Social Sharing Strategy
The first tip and trick that you should implement are ensuring that your content gets to be shared by various online users so that it can reach a large number of people. If you post content on your blog, you should ensure that your readers have an option to share the content to their online platforms by use of the sharing platforms just below your content. For example, you should make sure that you have all the major sharing platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram below the content so that one can just select the best platform to share.

Pay For Social Advertising
You might have a perception that social platforms are organic advertising platforms where you do not have to pay anything to tell people about your business and the services or the products it is offering. What you are forgetting is that many similar companies have posted the same message about their products hoping that it will rank organically. To stand out from such businesses, you should ensure that you pay for social advertising. Through paying, you will be able to get more clicks and shares. Your posts, whether content or visual will be featured such that it appears in the first page of the social platform.

Incorporate Videos in Social Platforms
People think that Facebook and Twitter advertising is all about posting content. They forget that sometimes you might be willing to talk about a long issue which will make you write a more critical post that people will not read. The best alternative for this is to ensure that you use videos to tell people about your products and services. Through a short video, you will be able to tell your audience much information than you would while writing. Moreover, recent research studies have highlighted that people are more interested in videos or moving objects rather than reading static content.

Maintain Consistency
One of the main reasons that make people go wrong while using social advertising is failing to be consistent. To avoid boring your audience, you should ensure that you remain consistent in all the social media platforms that you are using to advertise your products or services. You should make sure that your audience has something to see, read, or listen. This means that you have to post on a daily basis or even several times during the day. Moreover, the message should be meaningful and should be informative at all times.

Use Social Influencers
Another trick that you can incorporate in your online marketing strategy is ensuring that you use social influencers to push your products to the next level. There are those celebrities who have a large following on different online platforms. These could include musicians, sports personalities, and even religious leaders. You can use these people as brand ambassadors whereby they will be sharing your products, services, and advertising messages on their timeline. By doing this, you will be leveraging on their large following so that they will be able to know about your products. You will also get a significant number of buyers as the people who trust and love your brand ambassador will like to be associated with your product.

Use Original Content
Most of the time you happen to come across an image or a contemporary slang being used in social platforms to talk about different messages. The norm is that many business leaders are copying the messages that they think are appealing to individuals and posting them on their platforms. That is a wrong approach. You should always work hard and smart to ensure that your business posts accurate and original information without copying. This does not mean that you should not embrace trendy things and other funny images that people want to see. It means that you should ensure that the culture and the perception of the bran remain at all times.

Post Short Messages
Avoid the common mistake of posting long messages on social media platforms hoping that people will take their time and read the whole passage. Individuals have so many things to see on the online platform, and they will not be willing to spend more than three minutes reading a significant passage that will ultimately tell them to buy. You should ensure that your posts are short and precise. It should be clear such that an individual can scan and understand what you are selling and other essential features of your product.

Optimize Your Profile Picture
This tip involves optimizing your profile picture, which in this case will be the logo of your business so that people scrolling down their social platforms can easily see it. You can use a vector image so that the picture will be clear and sharp irrespective of the size you are using. Optimizing will also ensure that your profile picture can be seen by all the social media platforms regardless of the media they are using such as personal computer, mobile devices, and a tablet among others. Viewers should be in a position of seeing the whole of your profile picture so that they can recognize you readily.

Post at Optimum Time
You should understand that there is a period during the day when online platforms are at the lowest and other periods when they are at their highest. You should conduct comprehensive research and understand when most of your followers are using the social platforms so that you can optimize on the number of people who will see your content before it moves down the pages. Several research studies have shown that people tend to use their online platforms mostly around noontime, in the evening, and late at night. Target these periods when people are having their lunch, resting at home, or even at night when doing nothing. Your content will be seen and shared by many individuals.

Use GIIFs Wisely
This is a trending aspect where organizations are posting advertising messages and then slapping a GIF on that message. This is a wise strategy that your advertising team can implement to push your products and services. However, GIFs have been used so many times such that they will be losing their relevancy very soon. To maintain relevancy, you should ensure that you use them wisely such that they do not compromise your services or products that you offer to your customers. For example, you should develop clear guidelines on when and how often you should use GIFs in your advertising messages.

Incorporate Images and Graphics
Another trick that you should incorporate in your online marketing is ensuring that your content has a relevant image or a graphic that will be used to attract people’s attention. Individuals are likely to see nothing attractive if you post understandable content. To change this, you should ensure that you attach an image or a graphic that relates to the content that you have posted. You should make sure that all the images you are using are vector quality so that they can be clear in any medium being used. Studies indicate that using an image increases the number of clicks by 18% on Twitter.

Engage Your Followers
The key towards getting and maintain customers is through engagement. Many people marketers have the goal of getting leads and converting leads to sales, but they do not think about engaging their customers so that they can create a long-lasting relationship. You should make sure that you respond to your customers’ questions and try to help them in case they need your assistance. You must be seen to be offering value to them so that they can trust you and your products. Alienating yourself and failing to engage your customers might create a wall between you and them such that they will see that you are no one of them which can have detrimental impacts on your business.

Thank you for improving our SEO. You were upfront (which is more than i can say from our last agency) and honest. Thank you for pointing out the mistakes our last agency made using tactics frowned upon by Google and getting us back on the right track. 7 months with you guys has been better than the last year and a half with 2 other agencies.

I am glad i found you sooner rather than later our PPC spend was out of control and yall helped me increase sales while decreasing spend. I knew something wasn't right and yall quickly turned it around. I'm not going to try and do the "marketing" stuff on my own anymore.

Thank you to Kyle and his team for their hard work and dedication. Kyle literally spent the first 3 months being my main point of contact and he is the CEO! With a large budget like we spend its nice to know the owner of the company is available to take my calls and meet with me. He was in the office everyday we dropped in and our new account manager Ryan is just as good! The positive ROI has been amazing and i can't wait to bring my new start up on board from the begining when it launches in December of 2018.

Top notch customer service and very knowledgeable when it comes to PPC marketing. Austin is our PPC account manager and he is always available to take my call. Our business has tripled sales over the last 5 months. I highley reccomend you contact them the consultation was free and they are very laid back and not some huge 500+ employee agency that never has time for you.

We went through 4 "marketing agencies" before we finally had results with Website Marketing Company. All agencies are not created equal and we learned you get what you pay for. Other agencies locked us into a contract and charged extra fees we were not aware of before signing up. All of that is a thing of the past now with y'all. You were upfront and honest, no extra fees, no contracts and i feel at home. Prompt replies to my emails and a detailed breakdown in easy to understand language.

Our business has significantly improved due to the marketing strategy that you implemented. We even had a last minute change that needed to be made and we were able to call our account manager Austin on Christmas and he had the changes implemented the same same day! Thats customer service and can't wait wait for 2019.

This company was originally helping us with our SEO and website improvements, but they have now progressed into assisting us with our social media presence. I was completely oblivious to how effective social media can be for leveraging new customers. Over the past few months, they have been very successful in attracting and influencing new customers and building our organic presence. I’ve learned a lot about the right and wrong ways to improve our business thanks to Mike and the marketing team. Thank you for your honesty, transparency, and guidance! I look forward to a continued and prosperous partnership between the both of us. Best Regards,Angel

I have a very busy schedule. Therefore, I do not like to spend my free time hassling my marketing company for updates regarding work I’m paying for. I had that issue with a few other marketing companies before finally migrating over to this company. They are organized and it shows because my status report at the end of the month is always detailed and pinpoints exactly what kind of results were achieved during that specific month. So far, they haven’t missed a month. My SEO has drastically improved and I’m looking forward to running more campaigns as they continue to prove they are capable. Special thanks to Austin and Peter for being consistent and personable to do business with.

If you’re looking to explode your rankings, this is the right company for the job. I own a dog sitting business and I’m partnered with corporate partners like Rover, but despite that, I knew my business could be improved even more. I handle my own social media marketing, so I really only needed this company for Google ranking purposes. They skyrocketed me to the number 5 position in my niche and city in just 2 weeks. I was probably on the 3rd or 4th page before that, so they really worked their magic. What’s crazy to me is, this is JUST the beginning of what my business’s rankings are capable of!
