Some Great Social Media Marketing Tips From 2011

I am going to share with you some great tips that should able you to harness some of the power that comes from social networking. These tips will undoubtedly help all of your social networking efforts, and deliver more traffic to your website, and the effectiveness of your social networking accounts.

  1. If you use social media for customer service, make sure you mirror the hours of operation on your social networking accounts that you have for your support team.
  2. Try to blog as much as you possibly can, because this does have an effect on the traffic your website will receive. In a study, businesses that blogged daily generated five times more traffic than businesses that did not blog on a daily basis.
  3. Try not to use so many hashtags whenever you Tweet. It was proven that people whom used hashtags received 5% less clicks than users who did not use hashtags.
  4. When you use Twitter, try to keep your following number lower than your followers number. Following more people than people that follow you will have a negative effect as far as search engine rankings go. If you have more followers than people you follow, you will be more trusted in search engines.
  5. Depressing and vague tweets will have a negative impact on your social networking efforts. Always try to stay positive in your messages, and always stay classy. Sure, you want to add a little bit of personality to your tweets, but keep the negative stuff to yourself for the most part.
