There has been a great deal of change in the way that businesses view social media marketing over the years. Many businesses prefer to stick to the ‘old’ methods and it can work very well with properly designed budgets and an awesome team to create the campaign. However, when it comes to smaller business that have a small budget or no budget t speak of, the solutions can be quite simple. I say this bearing in mind that the results would not be the same as having a large budget. Using incremental marketing strategies you can accomplish a lot in a small space of time and as you begin to make a profit from these services you can then begin to save for bigger marketing.
Using Social Sites is something that most people are already aware off. So getting started within the social network that you currently use is a great start. Get your friends to help promote you and you will see as your traffic increases and you turn advertising into sales or make sales off your own product. As time goes you can begin expanding over other social networks and bookmarking services ensuring that all of your sites content gets book marked in the various social networks that there are. This next step should help to expand further in both your traffic and your revenue generation.
Once you’re here there isn’t much else you can do except write great traffic and let the process automate itself. Make sure you book mark with all of your keywords intact and that your content is usable for the visitors to your site.
Another nice way to keep visitors coming back for more is using an email list or RSS (Real Simple Syndication feeds) within your site. Returning visitors add a lot of value to your site.
The best way to make use of any of this is to ensure that it looks natural and that you, under no circumstances, SPAM the search engines or social media networks as this will definitely get you knocked out!
