Social Networks (e.g. facebook, myspace) have become increasingly popular amongst internet marketers. That’s because they work! Social networking sites are free and very easy to use. If you know how you can market your website or business with them, the benefits are ten-fold. This article is here to help you do just that. Harness the power of social networks. Let’s begin.
First of all you must decide which social networking sites will you choose to market your business. You can select local sites or global ones or both. But you must know that it takes time to create profiles, answer to messages and take active part in discussions. Time is always an issue so be very selective when picking platforms. It’s not easy to choose from thousands of online communities and hundreds of social networking sites. The easy way would be to follow the flow and go where most people go (to the large social networks like facebook) but, be aware that your goal is to market your business to people who are actually interested in what you have to offer.
When you are online on a social network please don’t make the biggest mistake most business make. They just sell their products. They put all their effort on the “selling” part. That’s wrong because people will know if you are on a social network just because you want to market your business or if you are really interested in how to become more social. One way to overcome this problem is to become an active part of the online community. Try to engage users instead of selling. Try to show that there’s great value within your website. Then gather that value and be prepared to give to others instead of just selling. Of course, you should be balanced with what you give and how you give it. Don’t forget your main goal which is to market your business. This method of giving will help you in the long-run.
With social networks you can start building awareness for your business by promoting your personal profile locally or globally. That way you can expand your customer base by creating a database of people “connected” with each other and interested in your business. Be careful though, in social networks people will connect with you first and then with your products. Promote your excellent, professional personality first. As I said earlier “Try to engage users instead of selling”..
