Want to grow your business using social media?
If you keep your ears to the ground, you would hear all the stuffs flying around about social media. There are great promises that you can make money using twitter and facebook etc.
But these promises fail to deliver and that’s the problem. If a system is proven to work, then why are people complaining?
I’ve discovered three systematic social media strategies to grow your business, and I want to share them with you. If you apply these tips and stay focused, the sky is the limit to what you can achieve.
I don’t know so much about social media; but I don’t have to know everything about a topic to make it work for me.
What you need are the right steps and results would come.
What Is A System?
To explain this, I want to ask you a question. “If you travel and stay away from your internet business for some time, will your business still generate income without your presence?
If you can answer that question, then you know the meaning of a system.
A system in this regard is a well fashioned organization that runs on its own, without the sole supervision of the owner (founder).
When using social media to promote your business, there are several things you can do to energize your system and make your business run on its own.
1. Create A Viral Product
Well, I do not mean you should allow customers to enjoy all your hard labor and your great assets. What I’m saying is that your products and services must be able to scour the web without your presence.
Off course, you’ve to do the initial job of creating a viral product that encourages the customer/client to share with others.
A business is not the building where you rush to every morning, although it’s a part of the channels whereby your products are housed. But a business deals more on your products and services. When you hear of Coca-Cola Company, the first thing that flashes on your mind is “Coke.”
2. Put People First, Money Will Follow
Before you can drive the right web traffic to your blog, you need to put others first. We all know about this, it’s common to us but highly effective in social media marketing. If you can put your prospects first, automatically, you’ve increased your chances of building a strong business bond with them as well as make extra passive income.
When you’re creating any marketing campaign for your social media fans, it should be “what’s in it for them.”
It’s highly do-able when you understand their needs. If you focus on the money aspect, it has the tendency of sending the wrong message to your prospects.
Solve problems – it’s an aged recipe – it works.
3. Be Available When They Need You
Even when people are interested in a given product or service, they might not take action immediately like buying or subscribing. Some thoughts are flying through their minds at that moment. E.g. “will this person be here next time?”
I’ve seen several websites disappear at the blink of an eye. It’s a popular trend in the make money online niche. And because these products they hype up every time don’t deliver on promises, such sites usually go off within their first year.
Big brands have been there for years. Brands such as Amazon and Wal-Mart are trusted by responsive shoppers, who know that their investment is secured.
If you’ll not be available in the next 1, 3, 5, 10,…, social media marketing isn’t for you.
Bringing Your Social Atoms Together
Success is an accumulation of tiny steps in the right direction. Before you can succeed in social media marketing, you need to bring out those social atoms that lie dormant within you.
These atoms are your real person who wants to connect, make friends, show respect, and appreciate people for who they are, not what they do.
Social media marketing unlike any other system has a lot to do with interactivity. You need a clear line of communication because social media users are primarily registered with social networks in order to connect, share and learn.
Whatever their problems may be, you can be of help by showcasing what you’ve inside of you, that potential power that craves to solve problems. This is the system I use for my niche blogs and most recently, the coupon blog where I highlight free sittercity coupon and 6pm discounts.
By knowing the exact problems and how desperate your prospects need solutions, you can easily snag a product or service that meet those needs.
Start by setting your business priorities right and map out easy strategies to begin. Who knows, your next social media breakthrough could be one step away? Don’t quit – stay there – success is sure!
