Use Social Media to Listen

True Success with social media requires more listening and less talking. It’s crucial to read your target audience is sharing online and discover what’s important to them. This will allow you to create content and trigger conversations that add value to their experiences.

Focus on a Niche

You can’t be everything to everybody. The key to success in Social Media Marketing is to use a highly focused strategy to build a strong, yet specific brand.

It’s all about Quality, not Quantity

It’s all about Quality, not Quantity. Better that you have 1,000 online connections that enjoy and share your content with their audiences than 10,000 connections who stop following you after connecting the first time.

Be Patient

Success in Social media doesn’t happen overnight. Remember, growing a group of fans and followers is a marathon, not a sprint.

Compound Grown

It’s like that old shampoo commercial. When you publish great content and share it with your audience of quality followers, they will in turn share it with their audiences. And this sharing creates new entry points for search engines like Google to find your content.

Find the Mavens

Find the influential people in your market who have quality audiences and are interested in your products, services and business. Connect with those people and build relationships with them. They in turn will share you with their audience.

Add Value

When it comes to Social Media, you can’t spend all your time on the Internet directly promoting your products and services. You must add value to the conversation. Focus on creating quality content and developing relationships with online influencers.

Give Credit

Building relationships is one of the most important parts of social media marketing. Always acknowledge every person who reaches out to you and give credit where credit is due.

Be Accessible all the time

Absence does not make the heart grow fonder in Social Media. Don’t publish your content then disappear. Be available to your audience all the time. Consistently publish content and participate in conversations in places where people discuss your niche.

Give to Get

Don’t expect others to share your content and talk about you if you don’t do the same for them. Dedicate a portion of your time to sharing and talking about content published by others in your niche.
