Social Media Manual: 10 Steps to take to become the Next Social Media Maven
Why Do you love Social Media?
The community aspects: you become a part of the whole process of submitting, voting, commenting, engaging and being a part of the process of opinion on things you’re interested in or passionate about.
3 Tips for Beginning to Intermediate Social Media Marketers
- Understand the community before you start participating: what the age demographic is, what stories are popular, avoid mistakes
- Build relationships with other visitors: talk to people, IM, comment on their stories, bookmark their stuff
- Make sure your main goal is to not just promote yourself: create value for the community by submitting other peoples stuff, vote and comment on other peoples stuff, be part of the community, share content from other people to create value that doesn’t come directly back to you – it’s more than just scratching one another’s back – it’s bigger than that
How does effective SMO influence a website’s presence?
- Traffic, Traffic, Traffic: 10s of Thousands of Unique vistors, thousands of page views on a post
- Building links: hundreds to thousands of links – the more links you have, the higher you get ranked in search, which makes long-term organic traffic from search engines.
“Too many people that are Expecting Value without Creating Value.”
