Building a Social Media Following
In episode 3 of Edge of the Web Radio, we discussed how to build a social media following. What are some necessary things to remember to properly utilize social media?
Social media creates a continued connection with your target audience. It allows you to control your marketing efforts and deliver on ongoing dialogue with your audience. In order to keep your message in the forefront of your audience’s mind it requires discipline. Keeping a calendar of scheduled content is vital to not have long blocks of time in which you are not engaging with your customers. It’s not their job to remember you’re in business, so keeping your foot on the pedal and continuing to deliver interesting and engaging content is the key.
Social media referrals tend to get more repeat visitors to your website. Once you’ve engaged users on a personal level, they form a deeper connection with your brand and are more likely to return to your site or better yet, becoming a paying customer.
Content is the beginning middle and end of any successful SEO campaign. Social media will drive users to your message with a consistent and focused effort.
