Making Social Media Work For You

Making Social Media Work For YouWe’ve already established that social media is more than just a place for socializing.

It has many uses especially for bloggers and internet marketers.

It’s a good platform to get traffic and leads from.

Since social media can makes it easier to connects with target market and develop a relationship, it can be integral to success.

But how exactly can you make social media work for you? Here are some ways to do that.

Pick the proper social media site for your blog

Not every social media site will fit your blog. So don’t try to reach target audience on every single platform. What you need to do first and foremost is know who your audience is and know what site they frequent the most.

You may notice that more people tend to respond to your post on Facebook rather than on Twitter or vice versa.

Now if both platforms work well for you, then by all means use them both.

Have personality to your posts

Nobody wants to pay attention to a boring and bland post. If you want to attract more readers to your blog, then your personality should show through your post.

Your posts should be ablet to reflect you and your blog. That’s because having personality makes it easier for your target readers to connect to your blog and be a subscriber.

Do not over promote your business

Just because your page is a business page doesn’t mean that you’ll spend more time advertising than providing actual content and engaging your followers.

You should follow the “one in seven rule” where one in every seven of your posts is overt marketing for your blog, the rest should be relevant to your audience and useful or amusing.

So instead of posting marketing about your blog, post instead a content that will educate and entertain your followers. That would be sure-fire way to getting their attention.

Write individual posts for each social media site

While using a social media platform for syndication does make posting content a lot easier, posting the same thing on different networks really only works for individuals.

If you do it as a blog or business, your message’s sincerity gets lost and your audience will lose interest and trust.

Now that you know how to make social media work for you, it’s time to get started using it to your advantage.
