Whether you’re a small business, or a Fortune 500 company, social media has exploded the pool of potential customers for every business. The possibilities are endless. You now have the power to reach out and touch any market, anywhere in the world.
The secret to a successful social media marketing strategy is effectively tapping into your networks, and utilizing all your sharing tools. Here are 5 Tips To Maximize Your Social Media Network.
1. Monitor and measure your key performance indicators(KPI)
Analytics measure your brand performance online partially based on your activity, engagement, and return on investment(ROI). You can identify your audience and their preferences. Your # of Likes, # of Follows, # of Followers, viewers, subscribers, mentions, retweets, and shares. If you keep track of the results weekly, or even daily, you can tweak the time, platform, and even subject of your content to generate more activity.
2. Encourage your friends/followers to engage with you
The beauty of these social media platforms is they allow you to build personal relationships with customers in far away places. Encourage your fans/friends/followers to “Like” your posts, leave comments, share your content, and start discussions. Join groups, respond to people’s comments, “Like” their posts and updates;and share fresh, valuable information with them.
3. Break your groups and circles down into specific customer segments
Break customers down by demographics, psycho-graphics, purchase history, browse history, etc. Create specific promotions, posts and updates for the different groups.
4. Create a contest
People love free stuff. Offer a prize for the follower that gets you the most mentions/shares/likes in 30 days.
5. Add video
The attention span of the average person is pretty short. especially with pop-up ads and full on commercials online to distract them. Aside from stunning visual media in the form of pictures, you need to add video to your updates. Keep it short, get to the point, and include a call to action. Blurbs, mini-commercials, interviews etc. all make for great video content.
A person doesn’t have to spend a dollar in order to become valuable to a business. You want to create an experience that customers want to share with their friends and family. Also, if you know somebody with a start-up, home-based business, or any kind of business at all; don’t be a hater, click the “Like” button. Stay tuned…MUAH aaand scene.
