Social Marketing Theory and Practice
This post will attempt to explain social marketing in theory, and in practice. I will teach you how to get thousands, or even millions of views to your website through social promotion on sites like Facebook and Twitter.
First, you will need to build a social list of friends and followers, or get access to one. You can do this by going to a site like Twiends, and sign in with your Twitter account, and you can get followers on Twitter for free, or pay for seeds, which you can offer for people to follow you.
Facebook friends are reasonably valuable, if you have a lot of them, although it takes a lot longer to get them, as you can’t just spam out friend requests on one account. You should probably only send out about ten friend requests a day there, and to people that are targeted to your niche.
For example, you could find people who mention those keywords, or who like a Facebook page, or are in a group related to the subject your site is about.
Social Marketing Theory in Practice
In practice, it takes a really long time to build up an impressive list of social followers by yourself, and I’ve been doing it for two years, and I still don’t feel like I’ve got enough yet.
There are people in countries like India who do this all day long, and there are sites where you can get people to tweet your site for a few cents per tweet, or Facebook share, or as little as one cent per click on a link.
I can work as a middleman to get you the best price for social marketing to literally millions of potential customers, or I can just do a quick share to my large list of social connections.
Social marketing theory may tell you to get your own social friends and followers, targeted to your niche, and then perhaps convert them into email subscribers, but in practice, it’s faster and better to pay someone else to do it.
