http://www.workintelligent.ly – https://www.workintelligent.ly/information/trends-information/trends-shaping-information-economy/. The main difference is that social media is not a monologue. It is a dialogue that the brand sometimes does not lead. People are talking online right now – and this is an aspect of social media marketing. The idea of twitter is to get as many “followers” as you can, the idea being that the more followers you have, the more traffic you can drive towards whatever your website may be. This isn’t always the case, however. Some people use twitter to keep in touch with friends or to make new ones.
The whole point of twitter, when you break it down, is to communicate with other people. Because you only have 140 characters in which to state your message, you have to make what you say relative to what you want people to hear. In other words, don’t waste the space that you have in which to send a message. Using social media to increase your sales to companies that maintain pools is a good idea. Blogs and press releases can generate interest in your company. Interest can lead to sales.
You can also use microblogging sites to reach potential pool maintenance customers. Blogs and tweets are a good way to reach other companies. You can also reach affluent homeowners this way. It is also customary to send them a direct message thanking them for following you. One of the biggest “twitter taboos” is to send your new follower a direct message with an affiliate link or a link to your website. If they are interested in you, trust me, they with click on your website in your profile to find out more about you.
Adding a link to your thank you DM is like shoving your information down their throat…and may be considered Spam. Get your own Twitter account. You need to sign up with Twitter before you can interact with other members. Don’t worry as it’s relatively easy. It’s basically the same when you’re making an email account. I suggest that you use the name of your business for your Twitter name. Then, make use of a great picture, perhaps a cup of coffee and your best-selling sandwich or group of people enjoying the food that you serve.
Listening to so-called “Social Media Marketing experts”. For every five twitters, there’s one twitter that claims to be an expert in social media. They have a taste for spam and like to post links to blogs spouting off their knowledge about how to amass a huge following. Note: they don’t tell you how to gain a solid, strong following where the Twitters are actually interested in what you have to say.
If you look closely at their own followers, it consists of – big surprise here – spammers and so-called Social Media Marketing experts.
