Social media – hate it or love it, but if you want to get your business ahead, you have to embrace it.
SEO definitely hasn’t lost its value, but nowadays finding your place among all those top-ranking sites is a tough and sometimes impossible task. Lately social media is turning into the easier way to gain exposure.
As easy as getting social media traffic is, the more saturated a medium becomes, the harder focusing that traffic flow to you becomes. So, with thousands and thousands of marketers trying to get ahead of their games, you need to stand out!
Today’s post will take a look at four relatively easy ways to make a head start in the social game!
First off, what’s that social media trio?
No, I actually don’t think the answer isn’t something we already know. The three networks I am referring to are Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.
Why I’ve chosen them?
- Twitter - By utilizing a variety of tools I’ve been able to reach almost 60,000 followers. No overnight results though – for this to happen, I needed more than two years! And although Twitter might not be popular among most people it is popular among marketers. Not all businesses have a fan page but almost all have a Twitter account.
- Facebook - As I said not as many businesses use Facebook, which makes for a less competition. Generating Facebook fans if you already have a blog and content to promote isn’t all that difficult. Facebook traffic makes for lower bounce rates and longer time spent on the blog.
- Google Plus - It seems like many marketers steer away from Google’s social media platform. Although Google Plus has a relatively smaller userbase than say Facebook, the numbers are still in the millions range and the traffic potential will keep improving throughout time.
Having cleared that up, on to the actual tips we move!
