Social Media Marketing – It is the hot topic today. It should be, because it works! It works if you follow certain steps, but you need to learn what those steps are, right? The last thing you want to do is spin your wheels, and trust me, so many people do. They spend hours trying to market their business through social media but fall flat.
Well, no more! I’m going to go over the best social media marketing training online and show you how you can get a full library of training on every aspect of social media marketing online. First, let me touch on some strategies I want to share with you that work for me, and then I’ll direct you to the library of courses you can get to really help you grow your business.
Post all your content
If you don’t get your content out there, it won’t get out there! So post a picture and a small blurb, along with a link to your post, for every article you write on your website. You’re going to want to post on your Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Instagram, of course, but you should have several groups (even one of your own if you desire) in Facebook and LinkedIn that you post your link in as well. Here is an example of a post I made on a Facebook group for one of my recent posts:
Twitter doesn’t have “groups” per se, but they do have hashtags (#) which group the posts into categories that people can search. #AffiliateMarketing or #OnlineMarketing are ones that I often use. When you make your tweet, you simply put the hashtags in the body of your tweet, and it will show up in those categories. Here is an example of one of my tweets:
Importance of photos
I cannot stress enough the importance of photos, not only in your posts themselves, but in your social media posts. Sites like Pinterest requires them, as does Instagram. I have several “Boards” on Pinterest, so rather than post the same picture over and over again for my posts on each of my Boards, I make several different pictures for each blog post I create.
I use a program called Canva, and I use several free stock photo sites like Pixabay for my photos. I explain all about it in this article here: ADD COOL TEXT TO A PHOTO
Here is an example of the various pictures I created for one of my blog posts to give me a variety when posting on my social media sites:
Engage people on social media
Don’t just be a blind poster. People want to see more from you than just see your posts. They want to interact with you, and this is the tricky part. You want to make sure you are not wasting a lot of time on social media looking at memes and posting to your friends. I’m not saying you can’t do those activities, but not when you are working on your business.
You do want to engage people. Here’s what I do. I go through my groups and I see people who might be looking for an opportunity, and I reach out to them. I might send them a private message or post an opportunity to them in their post comments. However you do it, do it! Then follow up. Make a spreadsheet of people who you have contacted and then contact them again to see if they saw your post and are interested in your opportunity.
**** Secret Strategy to engage people
There is another strategy that I’m going to share with you, and this is HUGE. Take a look at other people’s business opportunities and see who is responding to them wanting more information. Those people are looking!!! Take a moment and reach out to them with your information and opportunity. Send them a private message. Be real, present what you have to offer, and see how they respond.
Remember, however you do it, keep a list and follow up!
