What’s more important than Google when it comes to driving traffic to your website, sales pages, and affiliate offers?
If you said social media, you’re right.
With billions of loyal users, social media sites like Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram are now credited with more than 30% of all website traffic, according to a study by Shareaholic.
Clearly, we all need to pay attention to social media marketing, but if you’ve ever tried to put the power of social media to work for your business you may not have seen the results you wanted. Without a plan, it’s easy to flounder around, waste a lot of time, and not really achieve anything.
A good social media plan incorporates a mix of all the following elements:
- Interesting and compelling content you create (your blog, videos, podcasts, etc)
- Older content that still has value to your visitors (and you)
- Other people’s content
- Inspirational messages and quotes
- Funny quotes and images
- Events and offers
- Personal stories
