Social Media Promotion

Comments Off on Social Media Promotion

What is social media promotion, and how do you do it effectively to promote your site, and make sales?

Obviously the biggest social networking site online is Facebook, and there are two main ways of using the site to get traffic.

You can try the free methods like making a page or a group, and optimizing it with SEO, so that people find it in a Google search.

Alternatively, you can pay for an advertising campaign with Facebook Ads, which may be very expensive, if you can’t get a good click through rate.

Generally, there are better methods to get cheap and free traffic to your site from social media promotion, unless you’re one of the lucky ones on Facebook.

Learn about the methods that work in social media promotion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Favorite Social Media Promotion Methods

Personally, I’ve had a lot more luck with doing social promotion on Twitter. I have over 50,000 Twitter followers, and I can send out almost anything, and immediately get traffic.

As there is no keywords involved in getting people to click on a tweet, I can construct a message to send out that is exactly what I want them to read, to entice them to click, as if I was paying for pay per click ads.

By the way, I am selling this service, along with a whole range of social media promotion services at a very affordable price on the home page.

Facebook and You Tube either require a pretty good knowledge of search engine optimization or a lot of money, and a good knowledge of pay per click advertising if you want to have much success with those sites.

I can show you how to get ten times better value with the social media promotion services I offer, or if you don’t want to pay for social promotion, sign up to the newsletter in the sidebar and learn to do it all yourself for free.

Social Media Marketing Tips

Comments Off on Social Media Marketing Tips

This post will give you some valuable tips on social media marketing, starting with totally free methods.

Social Media Marketing on Facebook

While Facebook is the biggest of the social media sites, you cannot get a lot of traffic from Facebook quickly, easily and for free.

Why do I say that? It takes a long time to make friends on Facebook, even if you have multiple accounts, and nobody uses Facebook as a search engine, (or very few), so to get free traffic there you either need to spam people, pages or groups, or have your Facebook page found in a Google search.

It is probably easier to compete for a Google search with your actual site, unless you get a ton of likes, and other back links within Facebook and from other quality sites.

You can buy Facebook page likes on the home page, but that’s not free. The best free way to get lots of free traffic is Twitter in my opinion.

Social Media Marketing on Twitter

I get most of my traffic from Twitter, in fact if you’re reading this now, that’s probably where you came from, unless I managed to get on the first page of Google for social media marketing.

Take a look at a previous post to see what Twitter tools I use to get tens of thousands of followers, and send out tweets to them automatically.

You can buy Twitter followers, although it still takes a lot of work managing your Twitter followers because if you don’t follow back, many will eventually unfollow you.

Check out the home page to get Professional Social Promotion to set up scheduled tweets to our huge list of followers, and let us handle the hard work.

Social Media Marketing on StumbleUpon

There’s one more free social media marketing tip I can offer, and that is learn to use StumbleUpon. I have gotten hundreds of thousands of views from there, and it’s worth taking five minutes a day setting that up.

It’s a little complicated, so here is a link to an article on how to use the StumbleUpon toolbar.

I hope that these social media marketing tips were helpful, you can of course use Facebook Ads, but we can get you traffic cheaper. If you’re looking to buy something, try the social promotion services here at Professional Social Promotion first.

Social Media Optimization

Social Media Optimization

Social Media Optimization or SMO is about preparing your product, sales pitch, and pages for the social networking sites, and reaching the right people on Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, MySpace, StumbleUpon, etc, in large numbers.

The first thing you need is a good product, so let’s say you have something with widespread appeal, like a weight loss product. Not what I would pick, but it does have a large audience worldwide.

You have to think of a way to make it fun, and not seem like spam when people see it. People know the difference between an ad, and a friend sharing something because they liked it, or thought it was worthwhile.

Now in my opinion, the best way to go would be to make a viral You Tube video, incredibly funny, not mainly as an ad, but as a funny video.

SMO is about understanding what ordinary people like to share with their friends on social media sites like Facebook.

 

 

 

 

Social Media Optimization of a Product

Have a really fat person eating, with chicken juices running down their chin, and make a joke, like they explode, and fat goes everywhere, then have the ad at the end.

This is how you make a video that people will share with each other because they like it, and then it can go viral, and get millions of hits on You Tube, and you have a link in the description.

A good example of this is a viral video ad for Old Spice, which I just posted on my blog Video Mobster. It’s had over 30 million views, and rising every day. I called it Smells Like Old Spice.

A very good example of how much more people pay attention to your product if you have something interesting with it.

Maybe it didn’t increase sales of Old Spice that much, but if  0.01% of the people who saw it bought a bottle of Old Spice, then that’s almost a million dollars right there.

Maybe they bought two, or switched brands permanently, so you can see how effective this type of viral ad can be.

Social Media Optimization is either about reaching people on social networks cheaply, (which is what we do here at Professional Social Promotion, get in touch via the home page), or reaching them effectively, so that the video or ad you’re sharing goes viral.

The benefits of social media optimization are clear, you get your site seen by lots of people on the social networking sites, where they are most at home.
