4-Step Guide To Social Media Marketing Success

If you’re reading this right now then I bet you’re using social media to some extent, but most business owners are not using it correctly.

By using social media “correctly”, you can increase your business revenue, increase customer satisfaction, create raving fans, and create omnipresence within your market.

However, social media marketing is not some overnight success magic pill.

While it’s certainly possible to 10x your business by implementing social media marketing methods in your business, it’s unlikely that you will see a huge return immediately.

But….

From my experience, you’re guaranteed to reap massive benefits from social media in as little as 30 days from now if done correctly and consistently.

When you implement proven and effective social media marketing strategies in your business, you can expect the following benefits:

– Increase in traffic, prospects, and leads
– Increase in competitive advantage
– Increase in influence
– Increase in authority
– Increase in brand awareness
– Increase in exposure
– Increase in following

So, as you can see, there is tremendous benefits associated with effective social media marketing.

With that being said; here is my 4-step action guide on how to increase your leads, sales, and authority in your marketing using social media marketing:

Step 1: Setup accounts with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Linkedin

Those are the social media platforms where your target audience hangs out. I recommend you do some research to find out which one of those social media platforms you should be focusing on the most.

For example, if you’re looking to target millennials, then your time may be better spent on a platform like Instagram or Twitter, but if you were targeting baby boomers then you might find more success on Facebook and Linkedin.

Every niche is different, and it’s important to truly understand your niche, and your target audience.

Not everyone will benefit from linkedin, but on the other hand there are niches where linkedin is the only platform you need to build a 6-7 figure business. So, the social media platform you should be focusing on will depend upon your niche and target audience.

Step 2: Block out 1 hour each day to post content to your social media accounts

Once you sign up to the social media platforms I mentioned above, then next thing you want to do is start to produce quality content on your newsfeed, timeline, etc…

The reason for this, is because you want to attract your target audience by speaking to them directly.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve just created a new account and you have zero followers, because I will explain how you can get more followers below. It’s important to have content on your profile so when you start getting followers, you will immediately attract your target audience.

Step 3: Use a combination of articles, videos, and surveys to create value and engagement on your social media

The biggest problem most entrepreneurs and businesses have is a lack or a need of more leads.

However, if you focus your attention on creating value and engagement in your niche, then a lack of leads will be a thing of the past.

Let’s reverse-engineer the entrepreneurs and businesses that have an abundance of leads. What do they all have in common?

Well, they all have created massive value within their niche, and people are engaging with their message, content, products, and services.

So, if you want an abundance of traffic, prospects, leads, and clients, then you must create massive value within your niche, and get your target audience to engage with you and your business.

One of the most effective ways to do this is by creating high quality content and communicating with your target audience by starting interesting conversations.

You can do this by writing articles, recording videos, posting surveys, asking questions, and talking about topics that are hot and relevant within your niche.
Get people talking about you and your business, by being bold and attracting attention.

Step 4: Automate your social media marketing with hootsuite

Now, if you don’t want to spend hours and hours on your computer posting content to your social media, then I recommend you take advantage of this platform called hootsuite. Essentially hootsuite allows you to automatically post content to all of your social media at once.

You can also schedule posts for the future. So, you can literally take a day to create some awesome content, and then use the power of hootsuite to schedule your posts to go out daily.

This will allow you to create value and get people to engage on your social media profiles even while you’re sleeping or out and about.

I hope this was helpful and will open your eyes to how simple and effective social media marketing can be for you and your business.
