Social Media Tips That Work For Getting More Blog Traffic

 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

Social media is one of those Internet marketing phrases that I never paid any attention too until recently. Kind of like phrases such as blogging, micro blogging, tweet, bookmarking a blog post, and so on.

Social media is here to stay so if you are not sure what it encompasses you will want to quickly get a grasp of it. In this article we will go over a few examples of social media and how you should incorporate them into your own online business to make money online.

1. The first one to talk about is blogging. A blog can be defined as “website that allows users to reflect, share opinions, and discuss various topics in the form of an online journal while readers may comment on posts”.

That is saying a lot. From an Internet business point of view search engines love blogs. So do readers if you provide interesting content on a regular basis.

WordPress is the most popular blogging platform and what I suggest you get set up with. Be sure and host your own blog.

2. Get a Twitter account. Once you are set up with them you can do micro blogging. These are short 140 character tweets to your list of followers. There is a skill to building a large list of followers, but once you get it set up you can pretty much automate the whole process.

3. Social bookmark your blog posts. Get set up with a service such as OnlyWire or Social Marker to submit your blog posts to online social directories.

Directories such as Stumbleupon, Reddit, Digg, and so on are a great source for more traffic. These also serve as search engine bait as you get the search engines to spider the directories and find their way back to your blog.

4. Set up your RSS Feed. Think of this as building an email list without worrying about spam. You can even set it up for people to receive updates via email using a service like Feed Burner. As you subscriber base grows you can get a lot of daily traffic from it when you add a blog article. This will help you make money quick when you need it.

5. Join Facebook or other social networking sites. LinkedIn is a good one for business contacts. This is a good place to make online friends and can be a good source for prospects and customers for your online business.

6. Use an article converter for video marketing. A good one is Article Video Robot. With them you can convert an article into video and submit it to video sites such as You Tube, Yahoo. and Daily Motion. Video marketing is a must as Google owns You Tube and they are ranking videos in their search results more and more.

7. Join a handful of online discussion forums. The Warrior Forum is a must for any Internet business owners. Read Harvey Segal’s excellent free report on how to do forum marketing at SuperTips.com

This is a handful of social media sources and tips on using them to make your online business more effective. You must get in the social media game or find your business fall way behind. Social media is a sure fire way to make money on the Internet.

A Complete Social News Site Strategy For You

 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

Social news and media sites are an interesting field for internet marketers. They give marketers an opportunity to get a completely untapped source of traffic. Here are the simple steps you need to take with using any social media news site for marketing purposes.

Step 1 – Be an Observer

Create an account and use the site daily for say a week but don’t post anything – just consume what is there. The important thing you want to do here is figure out what content does well. What kinds of articles are getting the most votes?

If the site has any history showing stories that were popular in the past check those out too. Usually, user profiles can be a big thing. Does this site have some kind of friend system? If so, who has the most friends? Look at the stories that are getting to the top, who is submitting them? Are the people submitting the top stories also the people with the most friends?

Step 2 – Be a Contributor

The essence of a social network is user contribution. So far you have been an observer, you have been a consumer of the information but you have not contributed anything. There are many ways in which you can contribute:

– Vote on articles that you like
– Leave insightful comments
– Make friends with other users
– Participate in discussions
– Submit articles

Note that if you choose to submit content, don’t submit your own just yet – that is self promotion and is best left once you have established a bit of a ‘profile’. You do that by contributing as above. Each site is different but have a look at the user profiles and see what kind of information is stored at each one.

Does it show the number of articles submitted and voted on? Does it show comments left? Does it show discussions in forums? Friends etc? Find out what it is that makes a user a good contributor to the community and become one of them.

Step 3 – Self Promote

This does not mean to suddenly switch tactics, stop contributing and do nothing but shamelessly promote your own stuff! To begin with, now that you have an idea of what does well at the site you should know which kinds of posts on your blog are likely to do well so submit those but do it gradually – don’t ever submit more than one in a single day and always try to submit articles from other sites as well.

Now of course you may have already been submitting your own stuff as part of your social bookmarking strategy. If that is the case, have a look back at your submissions and see if they got many votes? What you have done so far has brought in backlinks but by adding in these social elements, by making friends, developing your profile and by tailoring your content to fit in well with the sites you are likely to be able to drive traffic as well as links.

So, here it is, a simple blueprint for using social media sites. All it really takes is for you to be consistent and persist with your efforts.

Obtain realistic recommendations about seo – study the publication. The time has come when concise information is really only one click of your mouse, use this opportunity.
