Social Media Marketing How To.
Social Media Marketing How To...
I have received some private messages from some members I am mentoring privately, and they all are more than happy with their results from their business pages. They have only been using social media a short time, but already they all are excited to finally see some results from their social media marketing. Many of them admit they were not really putting the effort into promoting on their business pages regularly, and as I have shared many times before patience and persistence is the key to getting more traffic and sales.
You Still Doubt Social Media Marketing
Many members still doubt how much of an impact their business pages will make on receiving more traffic and sales, and many of you really are in the dark if you think you can just write your heart out and the traffic and sales are just going to come to you without any work on your part. If it was that easy everyone would be millionaires who start a business website with a blog, but the majority of people will give up their business within the first two years.
Ask yourself why do the big name professional bloggers promote their business on social media business pages, and the answer you will receive you might not like but it is the truth. Even these bloggers know from experience they are not going to earn a substantial income just from ranking on the first pages of search engines, so this is the reason they promote on their business pages by using the strategy social media marketing.
It Is A Numbers Game
Traffic and sales is a numbers game, and if you consider how many websites you go on for information but never purchase anything? The more traffic you get the more sales you will receive, but you are going to find it takes a lot of traffic to make regular sales to earn a living in this business.
Everyone or most everyone knows about hashtags, you see them pretty much everywhere but do you understand how they work? From now on when you post on your business pages you want to add only one to three hashtags, but instead of just adding them alone write a short description of your post with your hashtags in the description and not alone.

I hope there are no rules against using hashtags and the @ symbol in the blog posts on WA, but this is the easiest way for me to show you how to do it properly.
Hashtags & @ Symbol Strategy
You will use the symbol # for your hashtags in your description as keywords for people searching for information on what your posts are about, and you want to start using the @ symbol with any business post. This is really important when you start sharing other business pages, you see this tells that business you mentioned them in one of your posts on your business page. Most of the time that business will mention your business or share one of your posts or even your business page, so this can be a very powerful strategy to form relationships with other business pages to work as a team.
Since I have been using this strategy I have been receiving new followers for the past several years daily from all my business pages, and the more followers you have the more pages your posts are going to be in front of more people. Even when they don't follow me they will mention me and share my posts, and even likes go a long way when you have enough of them every day.
Promoting Your Blog Posts
You are going to have to promote your blog posts to help build a reputation with the search engines and receive more traffic and sales, you will make points with the search engines by being active on your business pages. Just like the comments you receive on your website it is the very same way on your business pages, so for those of you who are fighting adding social media marketing to your business plan, how do you expect to promote your blog posts without using this strategy?
Big Business Names
You can go on any of these social media websites and you are going to find some big name business companies, so why would they have business pages and company pages if this was not something you need to do in this business? How many companies have you been on their websites that don't encourage you to join their social media company pages, and the reason is the more followers they have the more traffic and sales they are receiving.
Social Media Marketing How To
Some of the new members has shared with me they just want to write their blogs and not promote their new business on social media, but you are going to become frustrated from busting your butt publishing articles every day or several times per week and see very few sales. It is a fact the percentage is very low compared to your traffic how many people are actually going to purchase from you each day. You will need to find some other method to promote your articles besides just depending on ranking on the search engines, you must understand you are competing against the professionals of your niche who has an awesome reputation already with the search engines.
It Takes Too Much Of My Time
Everyone thinks it takes hours on your business page to promote your articles and network with other business pages, but you can spend as little amount of time as you like plus you don't have to go on every business page every day. To be active all you need is to go on each business page at least once per week, and your pages that are not as productive you can spend less time on them.
My Social Marketing Schedule
I spend every day on Twitter as much as I can back and forth throughout my day, and the reason for this is Twitter is my most productive business page that I get the most of my sales from. I have found posting in the morning and evening has produced me the most sales, so that is when I post on Twitter.
Most of the time I only am on Facebook on the weekends in the mornings, and i have several business pages and groups I manage on Facebook. For me, this is not one of my most productive pages for traffic and sales, but staying active does keep me in good with the search engines. I use this more to help people through my groups more than my business pages, but you need business pages to help people to find your groups.
Usually I am only on this page once per week unless I receive messages from people needing my assistance, but most of the time I am only on this page once per week approximately 15-20 minutes and that is all it takes to stay active.
This is another page I go on usually once per week, so you can see I am really not spending all that much time on my business pages as many of you might think
How To Be Active On Your Pages
You can be active every day the easy way without even going on your business page, you can use the social sharing buttons on your own website and any other websites you happen to be on each day. I take the time while researching and writing my blog posts to share my resources on my business pages at the same time, and with this strategy none of my business pages are lacking to provide me daily followers and interaction from other business pages. The biggest reason for this is I always make sure I use the @ symbol with the business name I am sharing on my pages, and this gets back to that business and they share any of my posts and mention me as well.
How I Share Wealthy Affiliate
I know this article became quite long in length with a ton of information, but I hope it has not overwhelmed too many of you. I have one last strategy for those of you interested in promoting WA, and since I started doing this I am receiving steady traffic according to my stats on my Wealthy Affiliate stats page.
Share Your Blog Posts
I have been receiving steady traffic to WA simply by sharing these tutorials on my business pages, but actually I have only been sharing them mainly on Twitter which I should start sharing them on my other business pages for even more traffic. Nothing convinces other people more than your personal blogs you are sharing with the community, so why are you not sharing your WA blogs on your business pages to get steady traffic and even some referrals in time?
What Is On My Mind
I really do hope and pray you guys and gals seriously put my tutorials to good use and give them a chance to work for you, and even those of you who don't want to mess with social media marketing really need to think twice about using this to promote your blog posts. I can't express enough many of you are only fooling yourselves if you think you are going to earn a living with your business by just writing your articles without promoting them. Since I started publishing one to two articles per week and spending the rest of my time promoting those articles my income has dramatically increased.
Whatever you decide I wish you the best,
