Start Marketing Here To Make More Sales

Shane Atkins 3 years ago

Over the past three years of blogging about online marketing, social media marketing has changed the most and at times it been hard for someone like myself to keep up with the changes and the best practices.

While your goals are still the same on these social networks; to create a relationship which then sells to your customers. The way you go about creating this strong bond with your customers is unlike traditional marketing and uses your creative skills that us marketers thrive in.


1. Instagram

The home of selfies and photo fanatics, Instgram takes average looking photos and short videos into amazing looking and exciting photos with the help of filters and simple video editing. Instagram is a great platform to snap up the social side of what your business does (the fun,silly and sharable bits) while still keeping your business etiquette.


2. Facebook

This one may be a little obvious but over 1.25 active billion users and with the highest average conversion rate of all social communities. [tweetable alt=””]It’s a must your business joins in and markets on Facebook[/tweetable] right but doing it wrong could be just as bad for your business.

This post titled “5 Creative Ways Humor Can Boost Your Facebook Organic Reach” by Ravi Shukle will help your business stay above your competition for all the right reasons.


3. Pinterest

A social image bookmaker and a fantastic place to grow extra traffic to your landing pages also a great place to show what your business likes and what they do.  Pinterest has over 250 million users which love photos/images about just about anything from cute animals to marketing analytics.

The video below from Pinterst shows you the “art of pinnning”.


4. Twitter

An amazing place to create new and strengthen relationships with anyone and everywhere which is exactly what your business needs. There are tons of free tools out there to help you find potential customers to follow and interact with also to analyze your Tweets to discover what Tweets are working for your business and creating the most clickbacks to your website also the highest interactions on your posts.

The biggest problem that many businesses have is creating the bond with complete strangers on Twitter. Engaging in the right way can fix this, I suggest you can check out Beata post 5 Simple Tips to Engage People on Twitter to help to grow your knowledge.



Wherever your business decides to market, make sure you create some goals on why you’re using that specific social network and what you want out it and how you’re going to hit your goals.
