How Small Businesses Can Win With Social Network Marketing

Having a successful business online can be challenging. It can be hard to attract people who want to buy your products or services, so you have to go and find them. Marketing with social media can be a great way to do this. Here are some effective social media tips that will make you a success.

Get some exposure by organizing a competition on Facebook. You could select a winner randomly among your friends, post trivia questions or have a photo contest related to your products. Make sure you advertise your contest on your website and newsletter: the goal is to get more people to find you on Facebook.

Use social media to market your business! Offer incentives to people who share your page with others. Doing so can lead to hundreds or even thousands of people being sent invitations to your page. This can be done through coupons, free samples or whatever else you may think of. It will make your customer happy to spread the word about your business for you!

Research your competitors’ social network marketing methods. This can be a great way to see what kind of methods work well, and you can also get ideas about what you don’t want to do. Don’t imitate them; use what you learn to put your own unique twist on social network marketing.

Be prepared to make mistakes in your Social Network Marketing. Mistakes happen, and you need to view the mistakes you make as learning experiences. There could be a post that offends some niche group, or a typo that sheds a negative light on your company. Handle the mistakes professionally and quickly and learn from them.

Add a bit of value to your social network marketing. Look for something that no one else is offering that you can easily provide to get your customers interested in you. Offer specials and discounts through your Twitter account or feature a giveaway for a free item through your Facebook account.

An important thing to remember about Social Network Marketing is that you want to create content that people will want to share with others. So be sure to create content that is informative and interesting. This will catch the attention of people and will want to make them pass it on to their friends.

Never spam when posting on social media. Posting spam is the quickest way to lose followers and damage you and you companies reputation. Spam posts on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites make any legitimate marketing difficult. If your posts are just a few words and a link to a product, you are posting spam. Give relevant content or reviews along with any links you post.

If you are going to post something that you saw somewhere else you need to make sure that you give credit for the content to the original author. Readers will not trust you if you give them the impression that you are using original content and then they realize that it is from another source.

If you are using WordPress for your site, be sure to put a Retweet button that is at the top of your posts for your readers to use. This will make it easy for them to pass on your information to others. WordPress has plugins for this, so it will be simple for you to do with huge benefits in the long run.

Have links on your main website to your main social media profiles. Your Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Google+ pages should all be linked from your main website. So, that customers know that they are the official websites for your company, and they can trust the content that is published on those social media sites.

While it is vital to be businesslike and let people know that you are in fact running a serious and legitimate business, you should also let potential customers see a lighter side of yourself. Letting them know that you are human just like them lets them feel like they can connect with you and they will be more likely to listen to what you have to say.

Videos are a great content for your Social Network Marketing. Demographics show that video is the largest and fastest growing online application. You can make your old articles and posts into video presentations using screen capture and presentation tools available on the web. Add them to your YouTube profile and link them to your social media pages.

Before developing a specific Social Network Marketing strategy, figure out which social networking site you want to use. Each social networking site works differently, so it is important that your strategy will work with the site you pick. For instance, on Facebook you can create a poll, unlike most sites.

Post content on Digg and Reddit. These websites attract a huge number of readers and most of these people use Twitter or Facebook to repost the articles they find interesting. Make sure you create original content that will make your readers want to share it. Always sign your articles with your name and a link to your main website.

Social Network Marketing

Use these tips to make your business stand out on the internet. It will be much easier to get people to visit your website once you start putting these Social Network Marketing tips in place. Once you see results, you’ll be even more motivated to stick with this great way of marketing.

 

How to become a blog superstar

07th Aug 2012Home Based Business, Self Employed, Success, , ,

OK, so you have read my posts about blogging, traffic, influence, etc and have decided you too want to start writing a blog. Great decision!
So let’s begin by thinking about what a blogger really is. A blogger is a cross between an educator, an entertainer and an orator.
Every blogger has to be these three things in order to engage their audience.
So now that you have decided to begin your adventure into blogdom, there are only 4 things you need to do to make your adventure a success and profitable:

  1. Find a home for your blog
  2. Find a focus for your posts
  3. Learn “Blog Etiquette”
  4. Persevere

Find a home for your blog

You need a host for your blog, some are free, some charge a small amount per month for their service, some are simple to use and some require more technical knowledge, some have more features than others. I recommend Empower Network for those of you starting to blog for the first time. It is as turnkey as it can get, and little to no technical knowledge is required, PLUS it is an authority site which will allow you to benefit from additional traffic and authority. The cost is only $25 monthly and there are no traffic caps. Sign Up Here!

Find a focus for your posts

Most every blog has a theme, a theme that sets the tone for most of the posts on that blog. Your blog can be a topical blog that focuses on a special interest of yours (politics, religion, health care, science, engineering, cooking etc.); a personal blog that focuses on what you are doing that day, where you have been, where you are going or any aspect of your life’s journey; or a showcase blog that displays your writing, art, photography, or etc.. Some posts will not fall into your blogs main theme and that’s OK, your blog is a reflection of you, and we all have different moods. Don’t decide not to post just because you feel like writing ‘something different.’

Blog Etiquette

The objective of most bloggers is to attract a regular audience. To do that you need to display some basic (really common sense) blog etiquette:

  • When commenting on a post, stick to the point, don’t get personal or abusive.
  • Never comment as “Anonymous;” if you are ashamed to use your actual blogger name, don’t comment.
  • Try to respond to all comments on your post, even if it is just to say “thanks for commenting”.
  • If you are verbally attacked for something you wrote, don’t get into a war of words, respond politely or not at all.
  • Never take a block of text, a unique phrase, a picture, a graphic or anything else from another blog or from any web page and use it in your post as is, without clearly indicating where it came from.

Don’t Quit

Bloggers write their blog! That’s what they do! If you post every day you will improve not only your technique but also your readership; don’t quit.

Bloggers are very much like novelists. Novelists write every day and finally reach the end of the novel. Then they submit the novel to publishers, file their rejection notices and resubmit to other publishers. Eventually, every novelist who perseveres gets published . . . eventually every blogger who perseveres gets a loyal readership and his or her own measure of success.

Our Mindset Defines Our Future

Our Mindset Defines Our Future

So you are probably thinking – what do you mean our mindset defines our future.
Don’t be crazy Ron, are you trying to tell me controlling our future is as easy as controlling our mindset?
To answer your question…. YES! that is exactly what I am telling you. Leverage the Law of Attraction.

Law of Attraction

So what is the Law of Attraction? It is simply the idea that we attract anything we focus our attention to in life. Whether this be either positive or negative, but of course we all want to focus on the positive side of things, since this is what brings us the most success, freedom and an abundance of happiness in life.

Going through life with a negative mindset will produce a future full of letdowns, stress and problems that you have attracted yourself. Have you ever heard the phrase “like attracts like”, well this is the basic concept behind the Law of Attraction. If you focus all your minds energy on negative thoughts, you will experience only negative situations and little or no success as time goes on.

The Law of Attraction is working 24/7 all over the world. Whether you are aware of its power or not, it is working in your life right now. You are attracting different people, situations, events and even opportunities. Once you know how to take advantage of this amazing tool, you will finally build the life you’ve always dreamed of; full of freedom, financial independence and abundance.

Negative thinkers are consistently focusing their thoughts, feelings and beliefs on what’s wrong with their life. This in turn will only attract additional negative thoughts and experiences. Want that promotion at work, yet you’re always doubting your ability, telling yourself you don’t stand a chance? Well guess what, your wish is your command and more than likely you won’t get it. Whereas the people getting the success and freedom they want in life all have positive self belief, they never doubt themselves or fill their subconscious with negative thoughts. Whatever it is they want, they already believe it is theirs.

Train Your Mind Jedi

The Law of Attraction works by training and re-educating your subconscious mind to actively seek what you desire in life. There any many different techniques that can activate the Law of Attraction in your life, for example:

• Vision boards
• Visualization
• Positive thinking
• Affirmations.

The key is finding a method or technique (or several) that works for you. Then you must perform it on a regular basis to ensure it is both effective and efficient to maximize your success.

How can I apply the Law of Attraction to my life?

Here is an example of one technique, used to promote the Law of Attraction. It is possibly one of the oldest yet still most successful methods, used by thousands of people all over the world every single day to find success in life. The power of a positive attitude and beliefs is second to none, it is regarded very highly among Law of Attraction believers. By remaining positive, and eliminating any negative thoughts, you will attract other positive thinking people and also positive events.

Take this scenario for example, where the situation is out of your control: You hear some bad family news or discover your employer is looking to make cuts, maintaining a positive attitude throughout these events is vital. An abundance of positive thoughts is important, don’t escape into your mind with negative self belief and damaging thoughts. Instead think to yourself what did I learn for this? How can I stop myself from making these same mistakes again in the future?

The Law of Attraction is a great tool to make massive positive changes in your life. Whether this be greater financial freedom, career success or even sporting performance, the Law of Attraction works with anything. I highly recommend you start using it today! You will never regret it.

Remember, What the Mind Can Conceive and Believe it Can Achieve!
