Best Social Networking Sites for You

Posted by: | Comments (0)

1 300x300 Best Social Networking Sites for YouHow do you know what the best social networking site is for your business? A lot of business owners just migrate towards Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Facebook because they are the most popular.

However, these might not be the best for you. Just because a particular site has the most users doesn’t make it the best.

So what should you look for? Here are five important things any site should have:

#1) Niche specific

Some social networking sites specialize in certain markets. While they have significantly less users than the generic sites, 100% of the people there are going to be interested in your site topic.

What kinds of niches can you find?

Basically anything you want. There are social sites for movies, travel, sports, etc. Just about every niche has at least one forum geared towards it, and many blogs.

How do you find these sites?

One of the best ways is to just do an online search like “best social sites for …” and then fill in whatever topic you are looking for. You are likely to get a good list. Also, type in “forum+” or “blog+” and add your market at the end. Both searches will bring up sites that are related to your target market.

#2) Secure sites

There are security issues with a lot of the smaller sites, so be certain you check on this before getting started. You might want to look them up and read reviews about them before giving out any important information on them. Some of them require some personal information, so knowing the security reputation of a site before using it is smart.

#3) Clear interface

Some sites have clear features, some do not. If you need an MIT degree to figure out all the features of a site, than steer clear of it.

#4) Videos and photos

Try to find sites that offer the ability to upload photos and videos. This simply helps you incorporate a personality into your marketing efforts. Uploading video and photos shows you are using the site for more than just the one way link, and you are serious about entrenching yourself in the community.

#5) Vibrant community

Look for sites that have a lot of conversation going on. Forums in particular are some of the best social sites around because they allow you to get in a conversation with your target market. This will help you answer questions and establish yourself as an expert.

The bottom line is, no matter what social site you use, the most important part is that you get involved. Don’t just use the site for a one-way link. This is how to brand yourself as an expert and get the most benefit out of your social marketing campaigns.

To Your Success,

Tip #4 Be Social!Depositphotos 10101683 m 300x255 5 Quick Tips To Get Website Traffic Fast! Part 3

Now more than ever before, internet marketing is about building a community. Whether you offer a forum on your website or you participate in social networking sites, social networking is a valuable traffic generating tactic. Sites like Facebook and Twitter can be powerful tools for generating links and traffic to your site – create a profile and then post comments, links to your site and ideas which generate conversation.

Get involved – many chat rooms and forums are industry specific, find those which cater to your industry, and begin participating. Speak to and connect with a highly targeted audience.

Tip #5 Advertise for more exposure and traffic

Advertising, when handled strategically, can be used to promote your content and products or services. PPC advertising is often the tool of choice because you control the advertising budget on a daily basis and have the tools to test and track your advertising efforts. Once you’ve honed your PPC ads the return on investment can be phenomenal in terms of traffic and purchases.

For maximum results, create a traffic and SEO strategy. Outline your plan and your goals and then take the necessary action. Take advantage of these five traffic and search engine tips to boost your business.
