Everyone is marketing via Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn but only few are really making headway. It’s time to quit struggling and start enjoying your business.
1. Start with Written Goals
You business goals will pave the way for success. If you don’t have goals well written in 2012, it’s time to pick up your pen and do it. The major reason people do not set goals is because it holds you accountable and triggers you to work harder. But that’s life, when there is no goal, doing business online become vague. Avoid that at all cost.
2. Few is always better
When it comes to social media marketing and getting results, few is always better. By this, I mean you should determine a particular marketing channel and focus on it. What format will your contents be delivered?
Is it via video clips, audio or articles. Once you’ve analyzed the right format for distribution, erase other marketing systems that don’t work at the moment and focus on the right ones.
3. Hire a Social Media Examiner

In the mean time, dedicate your precious time learning how to write better tweets and connect with potential customers. When you finally reach your short term goals, consider hiring a credible social media examiner to help skyrocket your marketing sledge.
4. Don’t be in Haste
‘Hastiness’ is a social media marketing disease that has rendered countless marketers homeless. Are you desperate to get your fresh blog post tweeted, please don’t be? Desperation isn’t the ideal thing to do.
You need to find out what makes your fans and followers engaged and awake by 12.00am. Until you determine that, don’t just tweet any stuff you publish to them. It would only scare them away and demean your reach.
5. Sticky Connection is Vital
Social media marketing is about making connections. But it should be more than that if you’ve chosen success a while ago. Make your connections sticky. In order words, share only helpful contents and information.
It doesn’t matter if you’ll get rewards or earn commission for recommending that fabulous offer, just do it for the sake of building strong ties that would lead to future sales.
6. Streamline Your Communication
When you communicate, be attentive to your followers’ yearnings. Communication is never complete until you get a feedback. One major factor contributing to failure in social media marketing is lack of concise feedback from users.
Let’s assume you tweeted about your upcoming product launch. What do you expect your recipients to do? Off course, they ought to give feedback so you could know what the future holds for you and your product. Ask questions and request answers – it’s very vital to your success.
7. Protect Your Online Reputation
It takes time to build a good image that others can reckon with. But a single mistake or plight could damage years of dedication and adulterate your goodwill. That’s why online reputation management is important.
Satisfied prospects keep coming back for more deals. If you treat them like an old broom, they’ll contribute to your business downfall. Don’t be in a haste to make quick money and forget your online reputation. Protect it, promise what you can do and do what you promised.
