Social media is a tool that allows you to interact with your followers and build an audience. However, social media is not the place to make money. Social media is the place for you to build awareness for your products and blog. You want more people to click on the links to your articles so you are able to bring in more revenue. The problem for most people is that getting those clicks is difficult. After tweeting blog post after blog post, only a few clicks come in. If you are successfully able to address this problem and get more clicks, your blog traffic will soar, and you will get more sales. In order to address that problem, follow these three social media tips.
- Grow a targeted audience. A targeted audience is different from any other kind of audience. This kind of audience is one that enjoyed the type of content you share before they started following you. Now that these people are following you, they will be interested in your content.
- Tweet better headlines. The headline is the sole indicator of how many times a link gets clicked. The more catchy and clear your headline is, the more clicks that headline is going to generate for the link. Here are some ways to master the headline.
- Tweet more often. The more content you tweet, the more people you are going to reach. It is important to remember that the world has different time zones. A podcast I would be featured in was scheduled to start at 3:30 pm. I got on my computer at 3:30 pm and then sent an email to verify that it was going to happen. Little did I know, the person was using Pacific time. This person’s version of 3:30 was my version of 6:30, and my version of 3:30 was this person’s version of 12:30. Although email and social media have connected us more than ever, the time zones remain disconnected. You need to tweet throughout the entire day so you reach everyone at the optimal time, no matter what time zone these people live in.
Implementing these three tips will allow you to see a gradual increase in the amount of clicks that you get. By getting more clicks, your will be more likely to sell more products in a shorter amount of time. What were your thoughts on the list? Do you have any additional tips?
