Discover These Social Media Marketing Tips For Success

There are many benefits to employing social media marketing strategies. Social media allows you to instantly communicate with a broad customer base, and interact with them to generate interest in your products, services, and overall business. This article provides valuable guidance on utilizing social media marketing strategies successfully. Use these tips to make your business more successful.

Use lists as much as possible. People love lists because they are easy to read and easy to pass on to their friends. When you produce blogs or articles with lists, those who find the information you provide useful are more likely to pass the link onto others via Facebook, Twitter, or another social networking site.  Always remain positive when marketing via social media. People like to be around others and things that make them feel good. Bad mouthing others or making negative statements can lead to others viewing your product or service negatively. Be sure to keep this in mind on your personal page as well if you have one. Continue reading Discover These Social Media Marketing Tips For Success

Better SMM: Clearing Up the Hashtag Confusion

Hashtags allow you to gain more exposure for your social media page and join conversations about topics you know a lot about or want to promote. You can also organize the content on social media sites by clicking on other people’s hashtags to narrow which posts you see. Any word or phrase can be turned into a hashtag easily, and you can see which hashtags are currently popular on Twitter thanks to the “Trending” section on the homepage. Your social media marketing can be improved by the proper use of hashtag, because the tag keywords will increase traffic to your site and may even come up in search engine results.

What is a Hashtag?

Hashtags seem random or confusing the first time you sign on to Twitter or Facebook. In fact, they are used quite strategically and can help drive traffic to your social media page and ultimately your company website. A hashtag is any word or phrase that follows the “#”sign, also called a hash sign. Once you include the hash sign, the phrase immediately becomes clickable. This allows users to click on your hashtag and see everyone else who has used the same hashtag. Likewise, you can search for a particular hashtag and see what other people are saying about it before you add to the conversation. Continue reading Better SMM: Clearing Up the Hashtag Confusion

Google Enters the Social Networking Scene with “Google Buzz”

The over abundance of social networking sites has people wondering what we need another social network for.  With FaceBook, MySpace, and the rapidly expanding Twitter already standing at the top of the mountain in terms of social networking, the new Google Buzz is receiving a lukewarm reception.

However, Google making ground in the social media market is more than a possibility – it’s almost a guarantee.  Google has made a solid splash with several software programs, browsers, Internet marketing aid, cell phone platforms, and endless other elements of the Internet, or computers in general, so it only stands to reason they would be interested in taking a piece of the social networking pie.  With an estimated 176 million Gmail subscribers, it would seem possible that Google Buzz will eventually take off and lead Google into yet another dimension of evolution.

If Google does succeed with this endeavor, and they probably will, the question that lingers is why is it better than the other social networking options?  Is it worth starting all over with picture downloads, profile updates, and friend finding?

Are There Really Social Media Marketing Tips?

I keep up with social media news pretty well. Despite having more of a raw SEO background, I recognize the value of social media with regards to link building and the resulting traffic building.

One thing I try to stay on top of is new tips and tricks that SMO marketers are coming up with. Just today I was reading about social marketing tips at ProBlogineer. I was especially interested to see if they had any breaking new social media tips. As far as tips go this post was weak. However, I did like the blog, and will be going back (I don’t subscribe to RSS until I’ve visited a site a few times).

So what tips do I follow? The following are just the baseline of my social media tips:

  • Don’t spam on social media sites. The users who you really want to attract the attention of are smart enough to pick through your spam, and after a while, they won’t vote for your content.
  • Don’t spam in comments. Sure, you might get some comment links through, and they might be do-follows, but most people will recognize your spam, and will not follow it. Your ability to just get comment links will suffer.
  • Do provide good comments on other blogs. It builds respect for you as a brand, and will lead to links.
  • Do submit good content to social media sites. The better your content, the more likely you will build followers. The more followers, the wider your network of potential link providers becomes.

I guess to me, good karma breeds good karma.
