In the world of business, blogging and social media you'd have to be living under a rock not realize how important social media is to your business. Our society today has so many ways that you can connect with people. We can reach companies and brands online that normally would be impossible. But social media has now given us an audience and a reach that is beyond our own. Why? Well some are driven by ego and just HAVE to see what people say about them. But some just love customer and input and really want to connect with you. If you have something amazing to share people love to share great stories. Those stories can be tweeted to their followers then they want to follow you too. Pretty cool right? Why do you care about followers? Because that draws traffic to your site and traffic brings sales. I can't cover everything about social media we'd be here all day.Here are just a few social media tools that will help you. Followed by the Greatest Social Media Tool On Earth
Before we list those tools some things to watch out for :
Don't just post Follow Me- ( not anywere ) I saw a guy who has a pretty big following post this : "Follow me on ..." I thought hmm that's a little rude. He has tons of followers but it just struck me wrong so I'm sure it does with others as well.
Try to make it about them: ie- Struggling with social media here is a post that may help you- then put your link.
Don't always automate people don't like to talk to a robot.
Especially don't say when they become a friend on Twitter " I can help you follow my blog"
1. I don't even know you.
2. I probably won't follow you.
A Better Approach? "Hey social media can be stressful I've found some tips that may help excited to get to know you"- So much nicer.
Here are a couple social media tools you may find very useful.
Buffer : Your tweets can be fed through this tool then you can add info to your RT's
