We have covered many topics this week to include How to Do SEO Onsite, Offsite Search Engine Optimization, Keyword Research for SEO, What is Search Engine Ranking Placement, and also How To Do Social Media Optimization. Today I am going to cover how to get started with social media marketing. I will show you how to effectively build a social media marketing campaign and also where to begin.
Social Media Marketing is paid advertising through social media sites. The use of advertisement on social media sites like Facebook is a very effective way to advertise both your business and your website. Depending on the goals of your business will determine where and how you advertise. The important thing is that you have a landing page on your website to funnel the leads that will come in through the advertising. This capture page should have a way to capture the visitors information and also a process to sell your products or services. A good practice is to utilize a discount or to give away something free.
Once you capture the visitors information then you will follow up with them via email or phone. Email marketing is a very effective way to communicate with your leads and also to convert them into clients. You want your emails to be informative and also to promote your products or services. I suggest that you have a good autoresponder to send out automated emails to those who opt in to your list. This will save you time. I utilize Aweber because it is easy to use and is very effective when it comes to getting the job done. It is also low cost, with only a $19 a month rate to get started. That will enable you to email up to 500 leads.
There are many sites in which you can get started with social media marketing. The best way on how to get started with social media marketing is to utilize a site with a large number of subscribers. I suggest that you start with a site like Facebook. They allow you to place ads that show up on the left hand side of the screen and you can choose the audience that you want to target with your ads. I suggest that you start out with a low budget until you get the hang of things.
Facebook will allow you to setup and easily get started with a campaign. You can set a budget and pick who and how you target people. There are other sites out there that you can use to do social media marketing. You can do the same thing on LinkedIn and also with Twitter. The best thing is to get the process down and start converting your ads to leads. Once you get leads you then need to start converting them to paid customers. Once you have achieved this then you can move to other sites.
