  • 1. Not Sure Where To Begin With Social Media Marketing? Start Here!
  • 2. Using social media marketing tools can be a great way to promote your business. You don't want to waste valuable time trying to figure out the social media sites though, or trying to market your product effectively. In this article, we will discuss some tried and true time saving tips for social media marketing.
  • 3. Use a variety of media to stimulate your potential customers when social media marketing. Having pictures, video, and games can increase the appeal of your page a great deal to those who make their way to it. Everyone has a different way they prefer to take in information, and using variety will allow you to reach them all.
  • 4. One rule of thumb to avoid with social media marketing is to not annoy your customers. Some marketers over do it by constantly sending their customers messages they really do not need or want. This can annoy your readers and cause them to not want to visit your site, especially if you're always bombarding them with messages!
  • 5. Do not be afraid to ask for help with your social media marketing. This market is large and many designers and consultants can create a website and social media strategy that works for you. If you choose to hire help, ask for quotes and references, as it can be quite expensive.
  • 6. Write a guest post on a blog in your niche or allow a guest blogger to post on your blog. This can help you generate extra traffic. Be sure that part of the guest blogging contract involves the blog owner linking back to your own site. You should return this courtesy when someone blogs for your site, of course. People who read the blog are more apt to check out your posts and your sites, too.
  • 7. Try to map out your objectives and goals for participation when starting a social media marketing campaign. Make them available throughout the company so that everyone within the organization is on the same page. Results from social media marketing will be more productive and better focused when all activities are aligned and working towards the same goals.
  • 8. You can have your Twitter posts appear on your Facebook wall as well. Perhaps writing different posts might be best since your audience on Twitter might slightly differ from your Facebook friends, and Twitter is about writing extremely short posts. However, this allows you to update both websites very easily.
  • 9. In your social media marketing, give prizes to your milestone likers or followers. Give away gift certificates or interesting things related to your product to your hundredth, thousandth and millionth followers. Not only will this encourage people to subscribe to your content, the winner will rave for a lifetime about how great your particular widget is.
  • 10. Make sure your YouTube videos all have links to your primary website in your descriptions. Also, make sure your YouTube channel is tied to the rest of your social media presence using the appropriate buttons. If you can convince YouTube viewers to follow you within Facebook or Twitter, the chances of them sharing your videos with others is higher.
  • 11. Get the competitive edge in social media marketing by using it to listen to your customers. Most businesses are bad at this, so if you truly listen to your customers and work to make change accordingly, you will be highly respected by those that matter most. Allow your customers to make suggestions and work to understand their concerns to increase your business.
  • 12. You need to understand your audience in order to figure out how to market on social media networks. You have to figure out what everyone is using their social network for as well as how often they use it. This will help you figure out what kind of things they wish to see.
  • 13. Learn the posting patterns on social sites. The peak traffic times for many of these sites are at 7 A.M., 5 P.M. and 10 P.M. and those are the times that you should be sure to post something new. If you post more than those three times, be sure that you are posting something unique and interesting, but limit the total number of times you post each day.
  • 14. In this article, we have discussed the importance of time management when marketing within the world of social media. We have also provided some beneficial time saving tips. Use these tips effectively to ensure that you are spending the proper amount of time marketing your business on the social media sites.
