Social media has undeniably become an important part of our lives. We share almost everything online, from that funny office party picture to some of the knowledge and skills we have. Social media is a great way to form relationships too, both with our target audience and key influencers in the industry.
In this blog post we discuss how social media can be used for building credibility, for marketing and for increasing your website traffic.
Social Media For Building Credibility
Social media is a great place to build credibility. Combined with a blog and other channels, you can develop a strong online presence and be known as an expert in your industry. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn are all great for developing credibility in a particular field. You can start by sharing articles from your blog and engage the audience with important topics and insights.
It is also easy to spark discussions on social media or contribute to an existing one. Again, the four platforms we talked about earlier are great for this purpose. When you see an article posted on LinkedIn, for instance, adding your own insight on the subject and providing a meaningful reply to the comments can help get you the recognition you’re looking for.
Social Media For Marketing
Social media is not only great for individuals. A lot of small and large businesses have successfully built relationships with their customers through a social media platform. It is very easy to attract new customers and promote the products and services you have by sharing them online.
Social media marketing is an inseparable part of internet marketing these days. I find social media to be a valuable tool to use when it comes to building personal relationships with customers. The platforms allow interactions like never before, which means you can position your business as a friend and grow that much closer to your customers.
You can also use social media alongside platforms like XCD HR to attract and retain talent for your business. The marketing opportunities are endless.
Social Media For Increased Website Traffic
One of the main benefits of social media is its ability to increase the amount of web traffic to your website. Not only can you use your social media pages to advertise your products or services, but you can also use it to build links to improve your search engine ranking. If a lot of people share your business updates, you can gain even more benefits.
On top of this, it has never been easier to share content on social media – you can publish a post within seconds and advertise to thousands of your target customers. You can also respond to any customer queries in real-time, helping to establish your business as an authority and build trust.
