1. Choose the right channel – Don’t flood every Social Media tool out there. Starting with the big guys (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube) is standard but spend the time to discover where your customers are most likely to be. Look further into the Social Media realms and discover where your niche customers are (Tumblr, Flickr, LinkedIn).
2. Quality over quantity – Don’t tweet or spam your way to the top. You’ll quickly discover your Twitter followers count disappearing before your eyes and your Facebook ‘like’ count at 0. Be open, transparent and engage in a conversation with your existing and potential customers and website visitors. They’re not robots and won’t appreciate 100 spammed tweets.
3. Go the extra mile – Take the time to set up the Social Media channels properly. Invest in custom background designs and logos. It will help you to get noticed, followed and build your website’s overall brand.
4. Maintain, maintain, maintain – Don’t get set up the channels and run. Social Media is about persistence and the time and effort you put into establishing your Social Media presence or campaign will help with search engine rankings and bringing quality traffic to your websites.
5. Learn and discover – The Social Media world is changing every day. Pay attention to what’s new and talk to your customers and website visitors about what channels they use. It will help you to attract more traffic and potential clients and also help for your website to be found in the hippest place on the web.
