      Social Media

      Many people wonder how on earth they can really use social media to beef up their business, drive targeted traffic and leads to help them profit, etc. Remember how masterfully Barack Obama presidential candidate used social media to catapult himself to the presidency, I suggest people review his campaign because you will learn a lot.

      • Build beefy social media profiles, fill out every single field in your Twitter profile, in your Facebook profile, in your LinkedIn profile, etc make your profile count. This is your way to share with people who you are, a half ass profile only makes you look like you really don’t give a damn about your online identity thus not getting you the results you can really achieve. If your going to get into social media and use it for your business or personal gain go all the way with it don’t half step!
      • Map out which social media profiles will give your business the biggest bang for the buck. Myspace is still a popular site but it may not be the best option for your industry. If your a celebrity or musician LinkedIn may not be the best site for you and you may want to try Facebook and/or Twitter. If you don’t know how to pick which social site to use ask around, ask a reliable Internet Marketer/SEO person you know to help you with your decision. Sure it’s not rocket science but don’t waste your time spinning your wheels on sites that may be an uphill battle for you to really get any benefit.
      • Select appropriate pictures for your social media profiles. We had a picture on our Facebook Page and then we decided to update the picture and immediately after we started seeing rapid friending and more response from the community. Something as simple as a picture really can make a difference in either improving your social media or also destroying it so be careful to monitor how your social media is being done.
      • Focus on quality not quantity. The days of just blasting and getting thousands of Twitter followers are over, its more and more getting to the point where the quality of your followers and their followers count towards your own influence. It works the same way in real life, if you hang around with losers then unfortunately you probably are also a loser. If you hang around with millionaires you are more than likely a millionaire as well or on your way to being so. If your going to use social media take time to follow the people who are in the position to help you, remember this is all about networking and building relationships, why go on Twitter and start following bums? I don’t mean homeless people either.
      • Have a schedule for how you will utilize your social media profiles. Set this up on your Google or Outlook calendar or whatever you use, be disciplined and really spend even if it’s 15 minutes on your social media on a regular basis. Over time is where you will get the most benefit in social media, it’s not about the quick hit. Social media is just like networking in real life accept it’s virtual. Follow the same principles, don’t take shortcuts and be genuine and honest to people.

      Hope these tips help!
