How To Dominate Social Media In Your Market

Social media isn’t complicated. It’s easy. For example, you have Twitter. You tweet a message to your audience. This get’s shared. You grow your audience. However, while the theory is simple. Everyone who has tried it, will know just how difficult it can be. Nothing happens instantaneously. You might tweet daily or weekly for a year, with no retweets, no likes, no followers. It takes persistence to win at social media. Most people don’t have this persistence and that’s why they lose at social media.

Probably the best person to follow if you want to dominate social media in your market is Gary Vaynerchuk. I’ve added a video of him telling you to fake it until you make it. It shows that you need to stick to what you’re good at, and ensure you keep going and never give up. On the flip side, before you get going, you also need to ensure you are positioning yourself and branding your company in the right way to ensure maximum impact.

Don’t trust this guy? Well maybe you need to reconsider. Gary Vaynerchuk is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal Best-Selling author, who is an investor in some of the social media platforms we discuss and has an amazing marketing agency that caters for very interesting clients. So he knows what he’s talking about and can make a difference to your marketing strategy.

Rebelmouse, which we’ve talked about before, is an important element of your strategy but no one is using it to it’s full potential for some reason. We’ve searched the Internet for companies that are doing a good job with their social media and want to use them as an example. Take for example, NaturesBestCures.com, which launched recently. This website has a Nature’s Best Cures Rebelmouse page which gathers all its content and makes it easier for people to find what they are looking for. It can be done better, and we have a list of 10 things we could change right now. But the important thing is they are taking action, and they are consistently putting out new content which is great.

What’s more, this all feeds into the Nature’s Best Cure’s Twitter page which is building followers. Again, they could be doing things better, but they are consistently tweeting and posting new content on this social media platform. If they continue to do this, I wouldn’t be surprised that they build a large following on Twitter within a year or so. They key is that they keep going and like the video above explains, fake it until they make it. They have positioned themselves well, and know their target market by the looks of it. So this is a key example of how to market your business. Keep going, keep posting, keep producing new content. If natural cures and herbal remedies is your market, you need to consistently find new ways to help your readers.

How To Use Social Media To Market Your Business

Social Media is all around us, but how can you use it without wasting an entire day on Facebook and Twitter? Here we’ll take a look at the most popular social media platforms and let you know exactly which accounts you should open, how to set them up correctly and how to use them. If you follow the advice laid out in this post, you’ll be ahead of the game and know more than 99% of your competition.

Facebook

Facebook is the big one! Everyone is one FB, and you should be too. The way to connect with your customers and potential target market is not through a personal platform but a business page. We tend to set these up for out clients to make sure they are optimized, but setting one up yourself isn’t that hard. Here is a great example of a company’s Facebook page. It has a description, a link to their corporate website, and regular updates on what’s new with this company. It’s one of the best ways to keep in touch with an audience that’s online all the time.

Twitter

Twitter is another major tool you should have in your online marketing. Twitter is a little limited due to the small number of characters you can use, but they have a very large user base, and setting up a twitter account is incredibly simple. Again add a link to your own website, make the user name relatable to your business name and keep your audience updated on all the latest offers and promotions. A great example of a twitter profile can be found here. I would suggest you don’t try and reinvent the wheel but copy the format of these examples to get the quickest results.

Pinterest

social media for a businessWhile Pinterest is more time consuming than both FB and twitter combined, the audience isn’t there just to waste time. If you have a consumer product to sell, Pinterest┬áis where you need to be concentrating your time and effort. The majority of Pinterest users are young and female. Most of the users are American, but other countries are adopting this platform as well. The real key with this social media tool is that you can display pictures of your products which will be seen by all the potential buyers – studies have shown that women are actively looking for ideas on what fashion to buy on Pinterest. It might not be the most suitable platform is you don’t cater to this audience, but if you do, I would suggest you put all your effort into Pinterest. A great new alternative to Pinterest we’ve been experimenting with is Pearltrees. This Pearltrees site is a great example to follow.
