Social Media is a must use for anyone on the internet. Twitter by itself now has in excess of 100 million people accessing its platform and Facebook has over 750 million active members. YouTube is way ahead of the rest with website hits of up to 1.5 million per day, 100 million video streams per day and 63 million visitors each month. The best thing about all of this is that all these sites are free to use and just imagine how you could get a nice slice out of that pie of people. Imagine how you get your business noticed on any or all of these. You could really get a boost in your search engine ranking while using these and other websites and tools for giving your business more exposure.
But you say you are always busy and don’t have the time to use social media no matter how successful it is. Let me help you out with that. What you need to do is to make a schedule for Social Media. The three steps in this process are:
- Create your presence by creating an account on the website or websites you want to make use of.
- Next you will need to get used to the idea of providing information on a daily or weekly basis to any of these websites you choose, ensuring that your information is search engine optimized.
- Develop websites ensuring you’re linking and back linking is being done successfully.
Looks easy right? — Wrong it can be a bit daunting and if you are working alone it can take hours to get just one website done up. But let me give you some more advice to help you along.
Internet Business Marketing with Social Media –Focus on the Essentials
Devote a set amount of time each day to perform your social media tasks. Say an hour or two. Update one website at a time ensuring you have completed your work for one before you get to the next one. It is a bit hard to do all of this yourself especially if you want to use multiple websites. What you can do is get some of your employees to help you out if you have employees. If not you can get any teenagers in your household to help out if you are lucky enough to have them. If you have your own business you can create a position for someone who will specifically handle your social media management each and every day.
If none of the above are options for you, then you could hire a service that offers social media management along with internet marketing. They will take everything off your hands from setting up the website to generating and disseminating the information that you will use for posting to the websites. There are experts at what they do and they know just how to develop your social media presence to get you the best results. You can find these services at affordable prices giving your enough discounts for contracts that run over a year so it can be affordable. There are those that don’t require you to sign a contract which allows you to stay with them as long as you need.
It doesn’t really matter how you do it but that you do it. Social media marketing can open a lot of doors for your internet business. If you are not making use of this tool then you probably aren’t seeing your full potential as a business.
