Social Media Marketing Tools for Free Promoting
by Robin Swan
Any company that has an online website realizes that they need to develop a creative marketing campaign to drive new targeted audiences to the site. Simply building a website and putting it up online is not enough to receive quality traffic from interested visitors.
However, there is cost effective advertising available for nearly free on the Internet that provides any business the opportunity to spread the word about the products and services they offer the public.
By finding the right target audience, any company can advertise the goods and services they provide. One effective tool for doing this is utilizing social networks, to locate interested individuals that want to visit your site.
Building a Basic Social Media Marketing Strategy
Getting involved in the social community using social media network sites is an easy solution for garnering a larger targeted audience to visit your site. However, social media is exactly that, it is “social”.
It involves two-way communication, which is much different than traditional advertising where the company simply pushes their ads or promotions to the potential customer instead of inviting them to interact.
However, part of an effective social media marketing strategy is to utilize the service to gain all of its benefits.
Obtaining a Facebook Page
The initial step in beginning in social media marketing is to create your company Facebook page.
Once you have signed on, build a solid bio that describes exactly what your business provides in the way of services, promotions, information or products.
Next, join a Facebook group that represents the ideal targeted audience based on demographics.
This way you can take aim directly on the type of audience that will be interested in the products and services you offer.
Allow the visitors to leave comments, feedback and reviews on your site, and do the same on other sites that you visit.
Be sure to include a link back in your signature when leaving a comment on a blogging site you visit in an effort to increase your promotions.
Obtaining a Twitter Page
The next step in promoting your online business is to create a free company Twitter account. Type in specific keywords into your Twitter search box that pertain to the products and services you provide.
Based on the results, begin to follow as many of those individuals obtained through the search query.
Begin reading their updates to become fully engaged with the individuals. Use this as an effective platform for dispersing or disseminating crucial information about your company website.
Additionally, use the Twitter account to answer any open question, on the products and goods you provide, or offer valuable content to help them find the answers are seeking and other items or information.
The last step is to create a blog site using WordPress or Blogger. Create your own blog. Use the blogging site as an effective tool to discuss specific features of your social networking site.
Add valuable content and use your social media marketing strategy to redirect the targeted audience to your blogging site, and eventually your business website, where they can see the products and services your company offers.
