Now that the summer is over and the final curtain has gone down on the Olympic stadium it is time to get back to business.
Whether you were in London this summer or not, the spirit of the Olympics – the coming together of diverse groups of people in mutual support; seems to have traversed the globe. I know that I feel more committed to making things happen and helping others to achieve their goals than I did before the games. I too want to be part of a legacy and inspire my community to achieve more and do better.
As they say start where you are; so I’ve decided to do just that.
My blog gets hundreds of comments each day and many business owners tell me that they are looking for a way to improve their business without breaking the bank. They also tell me that they want to grow their business and are prepared to do whatever it takes; however, they need to see a positive return on their investment. Consequently, whatever they invest in, not only has to be affordable, it has to be virtually 100% guaranteed to positively affect the bottom line.
However, the two biggest issues I hear from business owners are:
- That they’ve heard about social media but don’t know how to use it to grow their business or
- That they just don’t have the time to use social media effectively.
At Socialable we take a fresh approach to social media. We understand the traffic engagement equation; that the aim of effective social media marketing is to get huge amounts of traffic to your website on a daily basis so that you can engage with your visitors and convert them to paying customers. Unlike the people who promise you instant results, we really understand that today the only way to use social media effectively as part of your marketing strategy is through building a relationship with an engaged loyal tribe or community and that this takes time as well as patience.
To build a relationship with your tribe you need to communicate with it regularly. Listening as well as providing people with exactly what they need to solve their biggest problems. Gone are the days when all you needed to do was put up your website telling anyone who happened to wander by what a great service or product you have to offer. And unless you are a major household name or you dominate your niche and have literally 1000s of back links; relying on SEO keywords to get traffic to your website is a bit like trying to thumb a lift in a cul-de-sac, in a small village, in the middle of nowhere!
Today the aim is to get people to comment on your content and share it via their social media. This is the mechanism by which information goes viral. The more people talk about you, the faster your community of loyal followers will grow and as a result your online and off-line dominance of your niche.
Today effective engagement is built around “killer” content. Whether you write your content yourself or curate it form others; producing good quality content on a regular basis is the only way to guarantee to get traffic to your website using social media. Content is the key to traffic and traffic is the Internet’s new currency. So to use social media effectively you need two things:
(i) Killer content
(ii) A way to tell people where to find it! In other words a social media platform like Twitter, Facebook etc
So rather than beat yourself up about not being able to take advantage of social media; let me give you exactly what you have been asking for in my amazing value “Let’s Get Down to Business Again”, autumn offer. This great value offer contains everything you need to get the best out of social media as well as being:
- Guaranteed to improve traffic to your website
- Based on tried and tested methods that I personally used to grow my own social media high profile and traffic to my website – The Socialable website gets over 250, 000 page views per month, we have over 77,000 followers on twitter and a reach of 4.3 million.
One month free! Sign up for our 3 months social media monthly management plan before the end of October and get one month on us – that’s right get 4 months for the normal price of 3*.
As I said earlier we keep it real – we don’t make unrealistic promises about social media. It takes time to build up a relationship with your community using social media and therefore assuming you can do it in less than 3 months is unrealistic. Yes, you can get large numbers of followers overnight but what good are they to your business if they don’t engage with you or worse still you have no mechanism for converting them into paying customers?!
