Aaaaaah it's the generation of social media at it again! Despite our parents comments that Social Media is a distraction, it can actually be used to your benefit for so many business opportunities. I'm going to share how.
#1 - Drives Traffic:
Social Media is so helpful and easy to use. Advertising on social media can easily drive traffic to your blog, if you allow it to. Here's what you can do:
Share links to blog posts on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram Stories
Talk about the blog on other platforms
#2 - Compound Followers :
Friends tell their friends, who tell their friends. Same effect as compounding interest except the people following you grows instead.
#3 - Followers come in packs:
Same as above.
Here's My Follower Count for March 2022:
LinkedIn - 58 Connections / Followers
Instagram - 797 Followers
Facebook Page - 155 Follows
Facebook Group - 35 Members
Twitter - 19 Followers
Tik Tok - 3,198 Followers
I'll be updating this at the end of April!
How Can I Maximize Each Resource?
Social Media is an awesome resource to:
Grow your image
Grow a Brand
Direct People to your Shop
Create an Online Community
Instagram is great for aesthetic photos and quotes. People love to share a good quote with their mates and it all links back to your page.
I've had a lot of surprising success with Tik Tok and a few videos getting a lot of attention. Controversial Tik Toks always get the most heat! Give it a go!
Twitter is a lot harder to grow on and you have to put a lot more effort in to growing on that platform. I just use it to write cute quotes for Instagram.
