In today’s online market place it is important for all business and entrepreneurs to realize that the playing field has changed quite drastically over the last few years. There are many new platforms and websites that businesses can eagerly leverage to drive new exposure, traffic and eye balls than there ever has been before. Social Media Marketing technology has made it much easier to become visible online and it is up to you as a business owner to take advantage of this technology.
Launching a blog and having an active Twitter and Facebook account go hand in hand. If you don’t understand why that is not important yet just realize that having both is the first step to building new qualified website visitors. At the very least make it a point to have both created as soon as possible and worry how to incorporate into your marketing strategy after, your audience is waiting. After you launch your blog there are many sure fire ways to build new networks of happy customers and potential clients. Twitter and Facebook will be a nice meeting place for them to join and meet but it will be the blog that gets them there. When you launch a blog and start writing new posts you will most likely have to get those blog posts out there a bit at first to start building up new loyal readers. Once you have your Facebook and Twitter accounts all built with nice little links and great profile images you can sync the Twitter account along with your Facebook fan page. What this will ultimately do is eliminate one step for yourself. As you drop your blog post link into your Facebook fan page it will automatically create a link in your Twitter account for you. This is one great and convenient way to not only drive targeted visitors to your website from a variety of Twitter users but also build up your Facebook fan page as well.
This takes time so it is important to start doing it now and be consistent with it. Online marketing takes time to grow like anything else. Over time you will slowly start to build up followers on your Twitter account and fans on your Facebook page. As the search engines evolve even more they will require an element of social interaction through all the various social platforms in order to really help your SEO efforts.
