Social media has grown by leaps and bounds ever since its inception. Initially, social media websites (such as Facebook, Twitter etc) were used only as a medium of personal interaction and entertainment. However, over the years, it has found a pivotal place in the business world too. Social media has now become a powerful and effective marketing tool for companies.
In order for your social media marketing strategy to be efficacious, it must be properly formulated. If you feel that your social marketing plan is not as effective as you expect it to be, try implementing some the tips given below:
• Relevant Posts
I feel this point is highly important. Posting irrelevant and unrelated post will only drive your followers away. Therefore, always remember to keep your post relevant. Another way of keeping your followers interested is by putting up things such as solutions, inspirational posts, facts etc.
• Use Google+
Google+ has proved to be quite beneficial to businesses. Setting up an account on Google+ will help you make full use of tools and services provided by Google. Now I know that it isn’t as powerful as other social sites. Nevertheless, it is still an integral part of Google and you should be a part of it.
• Utilize Analytics
One way of keeping track of what’s working for you and what isn’t, is by reviewing your analytics. Moreover, utilizing analytics can help you find who all are visiting your page, when they are visiting it and much more. Use them regularly to get best results.
• Include Slideshare
In 2013, Slideshare is projected to grow at a rapid pace. So make sure to include it in your social media marketing plan. Using Slideshare will give you the possibility of sharing your presentation with millions of online users. Moreover, you can share documents, pdfs, videos and much more.
• Concentrate On Connections
More often than not, companies flood their profiles with ads and sales pitches. Well this is terrible concept and will only drive your users away. That is why always concentrate on building connections with your potential clients rather than sales.
• Regular Interaction With Clients
One thing that no company can ignore to do is to ignore its clients’ comments. Doing so will really put them off (and no one wants that). Therefore, remember to interact with your clients regularly, reply to their comments, tweets etc.
