Keeping Your Customers Buzzing Using Social Media

Social media is everywhere these days. On home PCs, on laptops, and on tablets and smartphones. You can’t shake it! So, you might as well use it to your advantage. As is the case with article marketing, it is necessary to avoid publishing content that is of low quality that could have an adverse effect on your firm’s reputation. There are many options available when it comes to social media marketing, but here you will find those that are most useful.

Use exclusive offers to entice your social media consumers. You can entice your customers to purchase with unique items that can not be found anywhere else. You can put up a contest for social media friends. If that is not feasible for your business, offer a coupon or unique item. Social media websites are also a great way to make special announcements.

If you have a LinkedIn page, use the blog feed feature to share your blog articles. You can use the feature to post a new article, so it will show up on LinkedIn updated. This is a time saver, and you will get more exposure when you reach out to your LinkedIn friends and a blogging community simultaneously.

Negativity is just part of the game when dealing with social media marketing. Social media is awesome when you get praise, but there is also a negative side. Instead of lashing out or ignoring negative postings, do what you can to turn unhappy customers into happy ones.

Tie together your social media profile’s blog and your LinkedIn profile to gain more power in marketing. Just post a share button at the top or bottom of your main blog page, as well as to every individual blog. People can then call attention to your blog for you by sharing with others on their site. LinkedIn has over 100 million users, which you will be tapping into!

Perhaps the best part about a social media marketing campaign is that it’s very easy to change and tweak if something’s not going right. The fact that social media is cheap (and often free) means you can reinvent yourself multiple times until you learn what works. The article you just read gave you some basic strategies to use as you enter the SMM arena, but in order to really succeed, you need to figure out what works best for you on your own.
