The internet continues to evolve and today, being social is a vital aspect of online marketing. Google looks at more than just your keyword density and at more than just the number of links that point to your website when deciding whether or not to send traffic to you. A social marketing strategy is now something that should be a very important aspect of your marketing strategy. It’ll help you with Google optimisation and it’ll help you make valuable connections with your customers, too.
Google wants ethics, wants relevance, and a diverse set of attributes that point to relevancy in your niche and social media affords you an excellent opportunity to do all of these things. Social media optimisation helps with both SEO and relationship building in many ways but a good strategy is important.
What should your optimisation strategy consist of?
Links point to your content, directing people AND search engines
Info will help you direct people to content and will help you establish yourself as an authority to others.
Announcing new product promotions, product launches, contests, and industry news will help you gain attention and could result in sales.
Social Media Interaction
Interact with your followers. You can’t just post social messages that benefit you. To really benefit, you have to be beneficial and interface with others.
There are many sites, such as Twitter, Facebook, and others that can help you flourish with social media. Use the profiles, use data mining tools such as Twitter search, consider using advertising, and analyse the results so you can see which methods are best impacting your business and your bottom line.
Social media is mobile, it’s everywhere, and it’s here to stay. The sooner you start utilising it, the sooner you can use it to your advantage!
