Social Media for a Website – How and Why?
Hey everyone, today I thought that we should discuss Social Media for a Website how and why can seriously increase the traffic to your website without costing you any cold hard cash.
How Can Social Media Help
Let us start out here by saying when you are new to the internet no one knows about your website. Sure the search engines crawl every day and find the content that you are placing on your website but people need to know about it as well.
Starting out people usually are on a tight budget and do not have the extra cash lying around to pay for advertisements to the website they have just created so you need to do your own advertising for free as much as possible.
Social Media is one form of getting the word out to hundreds of people – how you might ask without just showing family and friends who you connect with on Facebook, Twitter, or any other of the platforms?
Suppose you are friends with fifty people on Facebook but they have over three hundred friends besides you when you share with them ask them to please share with their friends and ask them to share as well.
When you get your friends to share with their friends and say their friends share to even more then you can build your following up with any of the Social Media platforms on the internet.
At first, I was somewhat skeptical to do this and thought how do you ask friends and family to share your website, surprisingly enough they are happy to do it and help you with getting the new website out letting people know about it.
Why Use Social Media
Reaching people letting them know about your website with Social Media is one way to drive organic traffic to your website in other words free traffic. You do not have to pay for this advertising!
Promote your posts on the Social Media platform as often as you can people who have decided to follow you want more information that is why they followed in the first place.
When they realize you have something of value to offer them, in turn, they are going to share your posts with others and the chain keeps growing.
The other Social Media platforms are Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and a new one Quora, of these I have found that Pinterest is simply one of the fastest ways to grow followers for advertising your website.
This free traffic that you are getting will help your rankings with the search engines and move your website further up on the pages within them.
When you are on the first slot of the first page of the search engines more people are going to click on your website bringing even more traffic to your website and possible visitors turn to commission putting money into your bank account.
More visitors to your website will keep your rankings up and more clicks to your website is always the possibility of more money to your bank account when people have learned to trust you and they will be return clients.
Power of Social Media
People are finding Social Media so powerful in the promotion of online business even larger companies have started to use this to their advantage and purchase advertising on the platforms.
Being just a small business with a website to promote a specific product or service we do not have an advertising budget like those big companies using Social Media will give us a nice way to promote our business for free.
If you desire you can always use these platforms to place advertising of your own and it is very reasonable compared to trying to advertise locally or in a big magazine to reach people as well.
Facebook advertising starts at a low rate of five dollars for an ad for a day and can reach around twenty thousand people which is not such a bad number.
Suppose out of those twenty thousand people you get around a five percent following that gives you exposure to another one thousand potential clients. Nice for a five dollar investment.
Practically everyone in the world today is hooked to one of the Social Media platforms using all of them can help you gain the free traffic or paid if you want for advertising your business to numerous clients.
Offering people solutions to problems that they are looking for even if it is the best toaster available for 2018 then you are providing a service they are searching for.
How often do you ask your friends or rely on people from Facebook or Pinterest to help you locate products or services?
Think about all the others all over the world they are doing the same thing prior to purchases or trying new services. Providing them with the information they are looking for is the traffic needed to have a profitable business online.
Advertising is part of business online or offline and seeing as this is your business you require advertising to acquire clients and make commissions on the products and services you have to offer.
How do you feel about using Social Media to get this information out to the public all over the world?
Is this a great idea or something that you feel is to difficult for advertising for free?
